UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014
33 cl bottle (4,8%) @ home, no BBE info
Leathery aroma with somewhat floury apples and some pear tones. Flavour has rather sweet and intensive pear, some floury apples and a glueish feeling. A bit too sweet and aggressive to be truly enjoyable.

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 750ml bottle (Põrgu, Tallinn) (5:3:6:3:12=2.9)
Slightly mealy pear aroma. Some strange gluey walpaper paste too. Pale, but quite dark for a pear cidre, clear, and definitely frisson. Taste fuller and sweater than the aroma, more apple and peary esters. Still a bit mealy in places. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth, with a nice sharp tartness that hacks through the fattiness of the ribs I just ate beatifully. Finish preserves the best parts of the taste, the tartness and sweet fruity esters. Perhaps not intrinsically great, but at 2.5% this is lush, and a perfect complement to fatty and spicy food.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn) (7:3:6:2:13=3.1)
Super sweet apple and pear aroma, pure fresh fruit, even baked apple, complete with some hint of sweet raisin. Crisp palate, sharp, a little thin and fizzy. Nice fruity taste, again plenty of apple, some baked apple, just a hint of pear. Shame about the petilance, too high for me even on a hot summery day.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2012
750 ml green "champagne" bottle (a gift), as Fournier Frères Poiré. ABV is 2.5%. Very pale straw coloured, pours very fizzy with a large white head that soon disappears completely. Moderate aroma of sweet pears and drier perry pear varieties. The flavour is sweet and very fruity, pears of course, but also notes of sweet apples. A hint of oak and sulphites in the finish. Quite refreshing when cold.
