3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice clear orange color with a small white head. Really rich nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Apple sweetness and apple juice with a touch of sugar. Maybe a bit of vanilla, too. The flavor has an apple pie flavor to it. Really great spice of cinnamon and nutmeg. Lots of apples and fruit sweetness. I really liked this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Foamy white head and slightly more gold to the hue than normal Woodchuck ciders. Aroma of powdered cider packets a bit of mulling spice and candy. Very sweet. Cotton candy, cinnamon, and a lot, a ton of sugar and those little bowls of spices and herbs you find in a bathroom. That said this is the first Woodchuck I have been able to take more than one sip of. Fizzy and thin.

Bottle. Poured copper with heavy carbonation. Nose was apples, spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. Tastes of apple, spices, with a decent richness and complexity. This is a good cider, and I appreciated the fall spices.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Old Chicago in Boulder, on October 8, 2012
Clear copper color, no head. Butter, strawberry, butterscotch, cream taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, no bitterness. Fruity scent. Not bad, but I guess I expected more apples to come though.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold, slightly hazy, with a little white head. Aroma of apple, cinnamon, autumn spices, autumn potpourri- when I took a whiff of this, the first thing I told my girlfriend was that I thought I walked into a country store in early October. The other raters have nailed it with the descriptions, too. The flavor is a lot like apple pie/cider, with the appropriate accompaniment of fall spices. Light/medium body, very smooth, crisp, clean finish. I’ve had the other Woodchucks and have to admit I was really impressed with this one; a lot more complex and spot-on than expected. Nice autumn cider.
