COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Woodchuck Fall Cider is the perfect combination of complexity and elegance, giving the cider a unique taste and special aroma not found in any other hard cider. Crafted using a centuries old technique, Woodchuck Fall Cider begins with an attractive cinnamon, nutmeg, spicy bouquet, and balances out the taste with a hint of American white oak. The appealing lingering aftertaste makes Woodchuck Fall Cider the perfect beverage for a crisp, autumn day. Woodchuck Fall Cider will be available in limited markets during Autumn 2009.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
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.

Sampled at the Top of the Hops Beer Festival, Charlottesville, VA, 9/11/10. Pours a clear amber color with nearly no head. Big cinnamon and nutmeg notes with a sweet apple finish. The taste is sweet apples, cinnamon, vanilla and a tart finish of baked apples. Medium bodied. Fairly nice.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 25, 2009
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.

DocLock (7733) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2012
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.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2010
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.

phaleslu (6291) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2009
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.
