Woodchuck Hard Pumpkin Cider

I haven’t posted in quite some time.  Summer was busy and flew by.  But now that it is turning to fall it is time to settle in, watch Football and start trying seasonal beverages!

First post of the fall goes to…

Woodchuck Private Reserve Pumpkin Hard Cider.

As far as ciders go, it is tasty.  But as far as it being a “pumpkin” cider, don’t get your hopes up.  I love pumpkin everything!  Pumpkin cheesecake, beer, cookies, candles, soup… anything.  But this really doesn’t have a pumpkin flavor to it.  It has hints of nutmeg and caramel.  But if someone poured it into a pint glass and handed it to me I would just think “This is a nice cider.”  It would be great with a fall meal and on the bottle it says pair with duck and turkey which I can see.  But I was really hoping for some hearty pumpkin pop.  So, bottom line, good crisp cider but missing the pumpkin pop.

If you live in Bellingham, Wa this cider and many other GF beverages brought to you by Elizabeth Station.
