This is one well done cider! Tthe aroma of spices draws you in, then the first taste, that slightly dry sweetness cuts your thirst so well you will want to down it quick, but you want to make the flavor last. Nice combination of flavors, not a bit of sticky sweet or bitter aftertaste, just clean crisp. The aroma brings back thoughts drinking wassail at Yuletide.

I love woodchuck fall cider. Itís one of the closer ciderís Iíve tried thatís almost like a "real" cider in some respects. I tried Harpoon, gross some other irish one...I did not taste apples. No. This cider reminds me of a traditional spiced sweet apple cider youíd find in the grocery store, but carbonated and 5% alcohol. For me with a sweet tooth, its sweetness is great. Itís not over the top for me, but its there and noticeable. The spices to me are just right. Iím stocking up on this! Iíll be sad when I canít get it anymore. I suppose there is a reason my local packy just got 5 cases of the stuff, it goes fast and has a lot of fans.

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.

This new seasonal does a great job of capturing the feel of autumn. Flavors of cinammon, nutmeg, and classic woodchuck amber cider all make for a very relaxing, enjoyable drink on a crisp fall evening. Goes great with the changing weather and colors, but would lose some effect if it was drank during the summer.

Clear amber without a much of a head. Sweet cinnamon aroma with fruity apple. Taste is apple, cinnamon, and cloves with a light body and good carbonation. I happen to love ciders, so this was very delectable.

Sampled at Lithyís Septemberfest Tasting. Clear pale straw pour with minimal ring of clearish white head. Nose of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor nutmeg, and potpourri, with spiced apple pie. Is this spectacular? Iím thinking so. Maybe the best cider Iíve had.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: Pretty much all the spices of a pumpkin beer but with apple instead of pumpkin and/or malt as the base.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light golden, with nice, tiny bubbles and an average, white head that mostly diminished and left barely fair lacing. The aroma contained apple, hints of wood, brown sugar, tons of fall spices, and autumn potpourri. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly acidic and slightly sour with a sort of short duration. The light body was dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pronounced cinnamon, clove, and apple nose. Clear amber, some visible effervescence. Cinnamon apple flavor with minty overtones. Normally, I donít care for minty flavors in beer or cider, but this works, somehow. A biscuity shortbread finish. This tastes more like a very good Christmas cider, than fall. Creative and I like it a lot. May be my favorite Woodchuck.

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: Itís alright. Akin to the amber, but with the added spice content and faint, faint oaking.
