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.

Decent cider for sure. Bit too sweet for my liking. If it was a bit more tart it would be really good.

Great sweetest pear aroma and crystal gold color. It tasted like a nutty pear, and would go well with brie.
