Backlog rating on 9-14-2012 (Bottle) This cider has a small white head, transparent yellow golden body and very little carbonation. The aroma is pears and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma.

This cider had a really good smell. Very strong sense of pears. Falls flat on taste and palate. Seems almost as if it was watered down. Just not a whole lot going on.
Smells and looks better than it tastes.
flat, thin feel, light body, light sweetness,

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Sampled on draft at the Gordon Ramsay Pub in Las Vegas this cider poured a very pale yellow color - almost water - with no head and no lacing. The aroma was strong sweet pear and a hint of apple peel. The flavor was very sweet and had a very strong pear presence and a touch of apple peel. Long sweet pear finish. Light to medium body. Solid.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Pale yellow pour with carbonation but certainly no head. Aroma of lightly tart pear juice. Taste is pleasant with pear flavor in what resembles a combination of apple and white grape juice. Not too sweet yet also not too tart. Hard to imagine a perry that gets it right more than this.

Flute glass. Refreshing odor of pears. Clear pale yellow with some carbonation. Tasty but I wouldn’t know it was alcohol if you didn’t tell me.
