2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very clear blond with no serious head. No lacing. Aroma is of apples, funk, sugar. Taste is of apples, sugar, very faint hints of slight reminiscent notes of pears, bretts?. Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. Bubbles are big and looks fake. Overall: Nice funk. A tad too sweet: I prefer the regular version (draft). Not clean enough. Still enjoyable for sure. The funk kick is there in the background, but the sugar overwhelms it. Not so drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear pilsner-esque gold, very fizzy producing a thick white cap that settles immediately to nothing. Nose involves quite a bit of farmhouse funk, mild pear fruit, vinyl, champagne, fairly medicinal. Super sweet flavor, mildly tart. Medium bodied, very soft carb, with a sweet pear finish. Strange in that it’s so sweet yet so farmy. If this were a dry cider, it would’ve been quite good.

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a clear gold with a small white head while pouring that deflates quickly. Aromas of soft old pear and warm fruit leather. Rather vinous Lovely and sweet. Lots of nice pear flavor going on. Sweet pear candy. Finishes with some more sweetness. On the sweet side, but quite tasty.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales - pours clear goldenness with tiny bubbles. Aroma is funky with notes of barnyard, the pear is kind of subdued. Taste is sweet and the palate is sticky and syrupy. Overall, solid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
D’un jaune trop pâle , sans rien d’autre. Ça sent les pommes très mûres qui s’accompagnent de poires en conserve. Ça goûte le jus de pommes alcoolisé, mélangé à du sirop de poires en conserve, encore une fois. Un mélange entre le sucré et l’acidulé (629-100513)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a moderate, but quickly disappearing head. Nose has a slight bit of pear in there, though the nose is very light. Taste is muddled, with some mixed light fruits. Not unpleasant, just hard to disentangle what’s going on.
