1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This one is just straight up nasty in every way. The aroma reeks of bubble gum which does not fit cider. The taste is unbelievably cloying. Weird spice notes overpowered by cinnamon. Very poorly balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some spice in the aroma; tons of it in the flavor, cinnamon and nutmeg are predominate. Apple up front, tastes like apple pie meets pumpkin pie, in a medley of Autumn flavors. I would drink again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale amber color, with little head. The aroma is very strong, and is apple, sure enough, with some clove and nutmeg aroma as well. The taste is very sweet, and lightly sour. This is one of my favorite ciders from Woodchuck (hopefully they keep making it). Try it if you like the flavor of clove and similar spices.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours out a crystal clear, medium-yellow body with a layering of large bubbles from a heavy, greedy pour.
Smell: Sweet-scented, lightly spiced nose of generously juiced apples.
Taste: Sweet, sugared apple juice with a very, very light tartness to it. Spicy touches of cinnamon and nutmeg midway, then a bit more sweetened juice on the end.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Lightly carbonated.
Drinkability: It’s alright. Akin to the amber, but with the added spice content and faint, faint oaking.

Copper pour. Awesome apple aroma with mulling spices and caramel. Flavor is a complex mix of spices, apples and caramel. Delicious!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some spice in the aroma; tons of it in the flavor, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Almost too much. It gives it a heavier quality. Still quite sweet cider but a bit over the top.

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best and most complex ciders ive ever had. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and classic fall spices on the nose with the backing of fresh apple. So many different flavors going on here!. Very easy to drink with the classic crisp finish that a cider should have. Really enjoyed this product and would recommend it to any cider drinker or anyone looking to try a cider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper burnt orange with no real head, but some light carbonation visible. Soft baked apples, light cinnamon and spices. Medium bodied, slightly sweet at the start, nice apple soda flavors (but lacking the cloying sweetness of a soda), and pie spices. Dry spicy finish with a nice amount of tartness and sour tones. Maybe not the perfect cider by traditional definitions, but I quite liked it and it vanished rather quickly. Tasty.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber/orange with no head. Aroma of apples, cinnamon, some bubblegum. Taste is apples, cinnamon, some sweet spices. Palate is light body, crisp, light carbonation. Finish is ripe green apples, cinnamon, sugar, various sweet spices. I could not finish the whole bottle, reminds me of ginger ale with alcohol. Overall the aroma and taste is overwhelmingly too sweet for my tastes.
