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.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2013
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.

Tap at JL Beers in West Fargo. Maybe Iím the outlier here but Iím digging this. Clear light amber pour with a small head. Apple cider, cinnamon, nutmeg. Works for me.

crossovert (7565) - Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
355ml bottle. Amber pour. Smells like a halloween mask and cinnamon, maybe some apple barf in there too. Flavor is burning cinnamon, this is gross, tastes like a halolween mask.

It tastes like a god damn air freshener, is cloyingly sweet, and has an almost syrupy texture. Itís a pretty orangish gold and smells like apple pie, though, so it has that going for it. But seriously, cut out the middle man and just spray some cheap cinnamon air freshener in your mouth.

Light golden yellow minor bubbly head. Smells insanely sweet with pumpkin spice (clove, brown sugar). Insanely sweet! lots of nutmeg and clove dominating. sweet throughout, oily mouth.

Bottle as "Fall Harvest" from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark gold. Aroma is rather cooked spiced apple. Med minus body. Flavor is very cinnamon. I think as the label states: "just like apple pie". Pretty good.

This was poured into a pint glass and a wine glass. This oneís got the same size head in both glasses (about a finger and a halfís worth of bubbly and subtle foaminess here and there). With a clear amber to hazed over yellow/orange color, thereís still a decent transparency allowing a ton of bubbles to surface gracefully. The smell had a unique blend that Iím not used to smelling for most ciders Iíve had. It goes a little something like this: a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and a light ginger give it a slight spiciness. The woodiness that slightly comes through seemed to be just a tad leaning towards the smoky side. The taste takes those previously mentioned flavors and basically just coats the apple flavoring already in it. On the palate, this one sat just a tad heavier than most ciders Iíve had, but not too much as its within the light to medium range just mostly closer to the medium side. This fairly sessionable cider had a decent harshness that ends up becoming slightly tame (did I just say that? tame carbonation in a cider, no hell has not frozen). This mouthfeel just shows that not all ciders do not pummel my tongue into submission. Overall, its about freaking time I find a cider I like. Best one Iíve ever had, quite possibly.

Hands down one of my favorite ciders. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and maple. Tastes great on a nippy day by the fire. Reminds me of all the wonderful things about fall. Not to sweet. Love this cider.

Pours amber. Smell is vanilla and apples and is quite sweet. Taste is sweet apples and vanilla. Some spices like cinnaman nutmeg, etc... mixed in but slightly behind the stronger vanilla flavor. Medium body and crisp and bubbly. Taste is good, but a strong flavor and not something I want a ton of.

This cider has a nice aroma of cinnamon and vanilla aroma too it. The taste follows the aroma with a strong apple taste added too it. The color is a dark golden shade and was very good.
