2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes: Poured clear amber with some bubbling along the glass and a small, thin white head. Cidery aroma with some pumpkin and a touch of spice. Medium body. Fizzy, with a touch of oil. Typical cider flavor, with some pumpkin and a lingering note of nutmeg underneath.

12oz bottle pours a copper amber color with a razor thin off white head that leaves no lacing. Smells of apples, pumpkin and spices. Tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation and semi dry finish. Good but not as good as the Ace pumpkin cider. The pumpkin and spices come out more if you drink it while eating spicy food. I also like the high abv definitely higher than average ciders.

Bottle. Had this last year when it was still unrateable. Literally tasted like pumpkin pie vomit. Absolutely awful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Minimal pumpkin flavor but some vegetal notes that cut the acidity of the apple cider. Actually Woodchuck’s fall cider is how I hoped this would taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper, like whiskey, no head. Aroma is typical of sweet ciders with a cloy candy apple nose, but this time with a touch of Christmastime aroma. The flavor is earthy and pumpkinesque with candy red apple flavors and a sweet champagne yeast finish. Pretty tasty, though just a bit too sweet for its own good.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Drank it on draft, looked clear and dark, strong apple smell, with a distinctly pukey sweet/acidic taste. Pumpkin did come across on the finish and did not improve things.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Smell is nice. Mostly cider with a touch of spice. Taste is cider with pumpkin to a lesser extent along with some noticeable alcohol. Not sure why they made this 6.9% not terrible but I prefer either a pumpkin beer or a regular cider more than this pumpkin cider and I definitely don’t want to taste the booze in a cider.

This could be better and it could be worse. At least the pumpkin taste is not overbearing and not too artificial.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear copper orange with a thin white ring of foam. Smells like fresh apple cider with a very slight bit of spice. Taste is much the same and seems like got a light dose of fall spices but no noticeable pumpkin. Sweetness is held in check and it’s a tasty cider with fresh apple taste. Good overall but not quite as unique or interesting as I was hoping for.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of fruit and hint of pumpkin, almost a bubblegum scent.
Drank from the bottle.
Not too thick on the taste and was refreshing, tasted more alcohol than pumpkin.
No aftertaste with a good texture.
Would buy again, glad I have four left, going to try with turkey/duck.
