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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours very clear medium copper brown with very thin white head and no lacing. Tastes very sweet, like apple, simple syrup, and pumpkin. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like apples, sugar, and caramel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper pour with a fizzy white head. Floral and spice in the nose with a very mild underlying hint of apple. Slightly odd flavor at the start, almost like a fermented pumpkin pie but then smooths out to a pumpkin pie, cinnamon and nutmeg middle. Smooth and sweet on the finish. Different but kind of good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium copper with not much of a head. Aroma has some light floral accents, a touch of ripening fruit. Flavor is mellow but flavorful with some light spicy accents, some light pumpkin, a touch of ripening vegetables. Mouthfeel has a nice roundness to it. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
28 oct 2013, bottle. Light orange, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is unusual cider aroma. Hard to say pumpkin but it is different. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Very unusual. Has a burnt cider or bad apple cider flavor. This isn't a good combination.
