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.

Darker pour than the average cider. Smells like popuri, tastes like liquid apple pie and popuri. Iím not a huge fan of cinnamon which may explain why I rated this lower than most of you have.

I love Woodchuck Cider. I love their amber cider and decided to give this one a try. Iím glad I did. Itís a sweet tasting cider, the maple syrup is the most noticeable. The overall taste is like a caramel apple. I enjoyed it.

This cider smells like ripe apples and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet and the cinnamon obvious. Light to medium bodied, itís a tasty cider that I could see being good in cool weather.

Bottle, not fresh by date but still smells new. Nose is cinnamon, light nutmeg, medium wood (oak rather than pine), sticky maple syrup and vanilla, love this, extremely autumnal and captures well the spirit of many foods and drinks of that time. Clear dark golden with medium carb and and ephemeral beige head. Taste is sweet, sticky medium body, no bitterness, and spices rule the day, principally cinnamon with only a swatch of nutmeg. Oak is calming and smooth. Would absolutely not want more than one of these a season, but itís plenty nice as a singleton.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Clear dark golden with a maple-y nose of sticky sugar and a wee bit of pecan, and sweet fleshy apple, dipped in a maple cinnamon sauce. Flavor is candy sweet with cinnamon and caramel, loads of candy sweet apple, with a backing of maple and pecan. A bit cloy sweet but very dessert like.

Bottle. Straight from the bottle. The aroma is apples and cinnamon. The taste is apple juice, cinnamon, and dry spices.

Bottled. Brown as an unfiltered apple cider. A bit more apple juice in the nose than the Granny Smith I just had. Iím smelling the spices too, but they kind of have the ring of "natural flavor." I started this before checking the label closely and could easily notice the cinnamon spices. So it more or less fits in with the current flood of pumpkin pie spice beverages. Even so, itís a bit of a dare for a mass-marketed cider.

Dark clear copper. Crisp. Cinnamon and nutmeg work very well. Refreshing and warming, but not hot. Complex apple combination. I canít quite place which apples are used. Thanks Meagan.

A decent spices cider, a bit too sweet however, probably has added sugar and not just fructose from the apples, too bad

On the edge of "too sweet" on account of the cinnamon and vanilla, but the smell is excellent, woody and memorable. Drank from the bottle but design is nice. Good apple taste hinting towards caramel.

Itís a long story... I bought a 6 of Sierra Nevada Celebration ale, thinking it would be great, but it was too bitter for my tastes by far. So, I thought I could save the remaining 5 by mixing it with hard cider. My only experience with ciders was years ago, when we used to mix Guinness and Woodpecker cider, a great combo. Well, I got Woodchuck Granny Smith to mix with the Celebration, and that was pretty palatable, the cider being a bit thin, but decent. However, the last bottle in the sixer was not Granny Smith, but this spicy Fall cider. Yuck! Apple pie in a glass. No thanks.
