2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lots of apple in the aroma and flavor. Had to look harder to find the pear. Is this a beer? Seemed more like hard fruit juice to me.

Aroma is as the name suggests: mainly apples and pears. A nice tangy flavor hits the palate. A good summer cider when not in the mood for a beer. I have always liked ciders and this one does not disappoint. Probably one of the best ciders available on the market.

Bottle... Labeled as Ace Fermented Perry Cider... Clear, straw-colored cider with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is all green apple bubblegum. Sweet, fruity flavor. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Finishes medium tart and medium dry. Overall, too sweet for me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
light yellow small quickly dissapating white head viz carbonation and ok lacing. Smells of pears and candied sugars. Palate is fairly middle of the road w/ some good carbonation. Overly sweet like candied sugars on a pear or sweetened pear juice. Overall just to sweet and oddly peary to be any good.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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 canít find a reason that I would ever want to drink this.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
