Btl pours clear amber color,no head, light bubbles no lacing. Smells like apple jolly rancher candy and subtle pumpkin pie spice. Has taste of caramel,apples and cream soda and a hint of gourd. Kind of has that holiday flavor:cinnamon,brown sugar,allspice. Has a slippery mouthfeel,light body,minimal carbonation with a slight bitter finish. First cider rating. Pretty good flavor, just to sweet for me. Decent cider to drink on a cool fall evening.

I have drank a remarkable number of soda pop ciders over the last couple years and as such I can say w/ good authority that this is pretty much terrible even for the style. It is clear orange and headless. It smells a bit apply and a bit spicy--not too bad--but the taste is dominated by a wierd, sweet caramel taste. It is sweet and thick and texture w/o enough tartness to balance it and give it that soda pop drinkability that apparently someone admires in this style. It finishes w/ caramel sweetness and a sort of floral apple note. This is a couple steps below most of Woodchuck’s stuff and most of Woodchuck’s stuff isn’t good.

Bottle. Drank straight from the bottle. Smells of pumpkin and autumn spices. Bad flavor and finish. Has a rough finish with some pumpkin. Unpleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfect mash of Apple and pumpkin, zero spice additives as advertised, easy to drink, sadly a limited time option. Best cider combo flavor pairing I’ve ever had.

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

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

kramer (5064) - 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 it’s pretty minimal. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the most interesting beverage, even for Woodchuck.

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.
