Sweet but not very sweet. Ripe sweet apple scent. This is more complex than most of their other ciders, such as Amber, but isn’t all that complex when compared to most craft ciders. I even detect a slight woody earthiness. Gumption is very easy to drink. It doesn’t have all that bold of a flavor, but is unique and tasty. I find it interesting that the bottle says less than 1% natural flavor, but Woodchuck’s website says no added flavors….I wonder which is true. I think this is a very solid commercial cider, but I wouldn’t consider Woodchuck to be a craft cidery, which at times they claim to be. Woodchuck is undergoing a significant re-branding & marketing campaign to compete with Angry Orchard, so I’m intrigued to see what they come up with next! They will always hold a special place in my heart between being the first cider I tried and my being one of the winners of their Ciderbration 2014 / new cidery contest.

Solid cider with a solid taste. Drinkably flavored, with a solid sweetness that doesn't leave my mouth coated with sugar, though. Look forward to the changes to the Out On A Limb series to the Gumption label, with maybe more "craftiness" in mind.

I don't tend to go for the ciders that taste like green jolly ranchers, but this one is pretty good. On the sweet side, a little too much for me.
