I like ciders and this one does not disappoint. Has a mellow apple aroma, but tastes like a buttered and spiced pumpkin. Delicious

bottle - Pours copper colored and smells like apples more than anything with maybe a hint of pumpkin. The flavor is very sweet and is mostly apples up front. The pumpkin is more noticeable in the finish. Interesting. Itís certainly different and it isnít bad, but once again Woodchuck should consider toning down the sweetness

This pumpkin cider is exactly as described by the brewer. Pure pumpkin. There is no frilly foo foo spices just pure pumpkin. (meets apple) A TRUE pumpkin tasting beverage. I donít understand why it hasnít sold better than it has. Anyone who likes a NATURAL, TRUE flavored beverage will certainly appreciate this one.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2014
On draught at the Strand Theatre "Beer And A Movie" Fargo event. Pours a clear golden color with a thin off-white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lace. Aroma of apple cider and pumpkin spice. Medium body with flavors of apples and earthy pumpkin spice. The finish is fruity with a cider and mild spice aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Pour is a darker gold with no head. Aroma is just sweet sugary apple juice. Flavor is about the same really. Real sweet apple juice with no pumpkin spices. Finish maybe left some nutmeg on the tongue. This was not what I was expecting, it was just a sweeter and heavier cider than normal. You could probably make a pumpkin cider better than this. Just get a regular cider and add a teaspoon of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Tap from Lazy Dog Macon. Pours clear gold in color with no head. Aroma of apples and pumpkin spice. Taste of pumpkin pie spice and hints of apple. Itís okay.

Too much hate on this cider. Itís pretty good. Tap at Wurst in Fargo. Clear light amber pour with minor head. Sweet apple with a nice reserved but present spice note. Slick on the tongue.
