I’m normally not a cider drinker nor a pumpkin eater but this ok. It doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie or other halloweeny beers which I what I was expecting. So it tastes a little weird but it isn’t a bad hard cider.

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 don’t understand why it hasn’t sold better than it has. Anyone who likes a NATURAL, TRUE flavored beverage will certainly appreciate this one.

Wow, this beer is the bee’s knees. I enjoyed it very much and the way the pumpkin accents the apple is amazing

Dogbrick (8149) - 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. It’s okay.

BVery (6427) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Too much hate on this cider. It’s 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.

madvike (2753) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle - Pours clear light amber with next to no head. Nose is a weird mix of sugary candy, apple juice, and fruit cocktail. No pumpkin. Taste is the same--Jolly Rancher apple, a little pumpkin pie spice, and apple juice finish. Medium-thin and slick. Too sweet, and there’s no pumpkin character to speak of.

12 oz. bottle. It tasted and smelled like soap. It was by far the most foul cider I have ever had.

Trev (1936) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Amber pour Aroma is apple cider, light punkin and a hint of nutmeg. Flavour is cider, pumpkin flesh, earthy, some alc sweetness. Very very light spice hints. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
