This is a great cider. Itís distinctive enough to make it something special. Itís a standout among seasonal ciders! Appley at the start, and pumpkiny at the finish... Itís not too complex but it does what it does well.

HURK. This beer is absolutely disgusting. Overly sweet just like all of the other Woodchucks. Sour, yuck, gross. Please avoid.

12oz bottle. Dark orange. Smells of sweaty ball sack locker room pumpkin funk. Smells of sweaty ass. Tastes like pasta water. Gag a maggot. (4213)

Sweet dominates! Absolutely no Apple taste...and really muted pumpkin taste. ABV too high for a below par cider!

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a minimal fizzy white head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is a pretty weird mix of cider and pumpkin pie spices with some apple skins. It tastes like a plain old cider up front, on the sweeter side, with some baked apple. There might be a bit of pumpkin on the finish, but itís pretty minimal. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the most interesting beverage, even for Woodchuck.

scarletfire65 (968) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle at home, from the deli. Aroma has candied apple, spice, and yeasty estes featuring bubble gum and tropical fruit. The flavor has a bit of funk with apple, bubble gum, pie spice, and a vegetal, dryish, pumpkin finish. Really good seasonal cider.

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

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2014
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

Sept 2014-12oz bottle...Amber...smells mainly of apples and faint pumpkin spice....the pumpkin flavor is very mild in the flavor as well...very decent fall brew....refreshing and sweet (but not overly sweet)...its like fall in a glass :)
