COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ace Pear is made from a base of 100% pure, local apple juice. Pear essence is added to give the cider its distinctive pear taste; a taste so fresh and natural it is already proving as popular as its more traditional apple counterpart.

Very light hued yellow liquid with a ring of white bubbles on the edge. Certainly smells like pear that have set in the trash barrel to long. Sweet and perfumy. Sweet pear soda. Couple swallows is nearly all I want to have. Just can’t find a reason that I would ever want to drink this.

Pale yellow body, no head, heavily carbonated. Pear is dominating, but not overpowering.

Extremely pale gold color. Nose and flavor are more reminiscent of artificial watermelon than pear. While cider can be a pleasant change of pace from beer, the quality of this stuff was pretty disappointing. The novelty of having a pear cider wore off pretty quickly once I had tasted how bloody sweet this stuff is.

love it it tastes good for someone who like to get a beer from a tap but doesn’t really like the taste of beer it is really fruity and fresh. Kind of makes you have to go number two if you have had too much. it is a little hard to find. But it is definately worth it. It is really good best on tap but still good in a bottle.

steview (1036) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 7, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2005 flute / sweaty apple aroma. dull, inactive straw body with fizzy white head that fully diminishes yet leaves a little lace. sweet apple flavor, slightly puckery in aftertaste, and with an unwanted cheesy palate. oh, this is pear? whatever. refreshing albiet uninteresting and odd. and after awhile i feel like i’m chewing on some fruity cheese... UPDATE 2/10/05: like, total... wine cooler?!

Pours extremely pale yellow, almost like Michelob Ultra, with a translucent quality and hints of green; also, low head retention. Interesting aroma, including pear but also suggestive of canteloupe, honeydew melon, mildly stinky cheese, and a particular kind of candy-in-the-form-of-jewelry that I occasionally got in the late 1970s and was exceptionally sweet and cherry or strawberry flavored. A little sour in the tasting, giving my jaw a little reason to pucker; while very sweet, it seems less sweet than Ace’s apple cider, and thus seemingly not as sticky on the palate. After the carbonation has gone, there is a nice white wine quality in flavor and palate, very smooth and still. Nevertheless, it is much closer in overall character to a wine cooler than wine. In sum, here is a cider that, while not really excellent as against the European ciders, is drinkable in a pinch. My wife took a sip and was pretty enthusiastic.

Had on tap at the Fox and Hound Pub in Austin Texas - 1st time I ordered a cider on tap - made sure no one was watching! Crystal clear like ginger ale pour with a snow white head and lots of bubble action. Strong aroma of cheap sour apple bubble gum - the kind you used to get for two cents a piece. Flavor is decent enough, but not enough there for me to distinguish it from a cider derived from Granny Smith apples. Sour, but not lip puckering. Somewhat smooth drinking and refreshing, and a good companion to a meal.
