"ever so slightly better than the dry version, if only because it hsa a bit more flavor and tastes a tiny bit "fresher". otherwise the same. just ok...not really a beer...more for when you don’t want a beer. 2012-big time re-rate! had head to head with Spire, with this being a CLEAR winner. lighter in color, the fruit flavors and buttery softness popped in yo mouth. don’t know if the recipe changed, but this was damn good."

From a 22 oz. bottle, poured into a wine glass. Light golden pour with visible bubbles, reminds me of sparkling white wine. Aroma of green apple and pear. Actually has a nice flavor, good balance of sweet and tart. This is refreshing and easy to drink, and a bargain price, $3 at Trader Joe’s. Would get this again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a wine glass.
The appearance had a glossed over orange yet somewhat clear in color. A fair amount of carbonated bubbles that were seen rising. There was no head.
The smell was like their apple cider but with a light pear to it.
The taste was basically the same as the nose.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability to some but I’m looking at this not so much so.
Overall, uh...just another cider to me.

Bottle sample from backlog notes. Pours a clear straw golden color with no head. The aroma and flavor have apple cider with a splash of pear. No complexity. Is a bit more dry than I expected.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home.pours Chardonnay colored with pretty nice nose of pears. Tastes of pear, tart apple, butter, Chardonnay, and a touch artificial. Slight syrupy palate. But refreshing enough as a midnight treat.

Light yellowish. Sweet sugary aroma. The taste is nice has all the lovable attributes of a hard apple cider but slightly sweeter and less tart to the finish. Very sweet not sessionable but a nicely put together cider

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
All the great qualities of a hard apple cider, without the tart finish. The pear permeates the nose and taste, and while it pours clear champagne color, it tastes great.
