In this fall seasonal cider blog, we are going to get into one of two fall seasonals from Woodchuck Hard Cider. This is their everyday seasonal cider. It is apple pie cider. If you read earlier beer blog posts about their ciders, you know the history of this cider makers. If you have not read those posts, please, read them to get to know Woodchuck. Let us get into this fall cider.
It has a clear dark golden color without a head. The smell has an apple pie notes of cinnamon and apple. The taste a cinnamon up front sweetest notes and finish like an apple pie aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the cider bottle:
The fall harvest brings farmers and communities together to celebrate another year of fruitful labor. It is a time of shorter days, cooler nights, and great apples. This cider has a complex and elegant character full of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg balanced out with a hint of american white oak. A true taste of the season.

In the end, I have to say this cider makers made me a fan of ciders. I am on my fall seasonal kick and I like to start trying them early to get as many in as I can. I know a few of these fall seasonals disappear from the market quickly. I know this will not but it is nice to get it in early. I know towards end of the season. I will be burned out on them but I highly doubt it. I say that every year. There is a nice complex tasting notes going on in this cider. It is not another boring hard cider. They put some thought into it for this type of season. I love the fact that it does taste like liquid apple pie. I highly recommend this cider. It is a nice way to kick off the fall season and wrap it before the winter season. Go get some! Drink it Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
