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.

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

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a golden orange/amber color with a very thin off-white head that doesn’t last. Smells of apples, pumpkin, spices. Tastes of apples, light pumpkin. Light body with a semi-dry finish. Lingering pumpkin after the finish.

Very nice and spicy. Some cinnamon features in addition to the obvious ones. I liked it much.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Bottle. Clear, medium brown pour, moderate carbonation. Aroma is light apple, but I have trouble finding any pumpkin there. Flavor is intense, leans a bit too sweet, and has sweet apples out front, with a subtle flavor of real pumpkin and an equal amount of pumpkin pie spices. Decent cider for the season, but it’s just a little too sweet for my palate. Would probably opt for their Fall cider over this.

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.

Drank from the bottle. Tastes like creamy pumpkin pie. Wish it had some pumpkin spice flavor to go with it . hard to drink more than one bottle.

(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.

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.
