"Pleasant semi sweet aroma and flavor of fresh apple and pear. So light in color it’s almost clear. Not complex, but definitely enjoyable....................."

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours a light pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of champagne, and sweet pears. Taste sweet pears, sugar, and a hint of yeast in the aftertaste.

Bomber to pint (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a completely transparent very light pear with lively carbonation. Smells of fermented apple and pear juice. Tastes like it smells, but less pleasant, with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

I’m a big fan of these traditional style ciders... crisp, effervescent, pear perfume simply reminds me of a lush sparkling wine. Beautiful stuff.

Plastic cup @ New Amsterdam Market.
Faint, pale gold color. Slight haze. Slight fizzle.
Smell is water-logged pear perfume & yeast.
Taste is Bartlett pear juice, apple tartness, some simple syrup, & yeast. A bit empty. Haven’t had one of these in a few years. Definitely no where as sweet or full as I remember it being.
Thin. Noticeable sulfites. Carbonation could of been stronger. Alcohol was a little upfront.
Their pear brandy still drinks pretty well though.

Not as good as the Fox Barrel that I had a few minutes prior. Sweet pear and sugar flavor with just a little yeast. On the dry side for a perry, but still a sweet beverage.
