COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hard Pear Cider is a dryer, soft bodied cider which is light and refreshing. It’s an excellent candidate in situations where you might consider a dry Gewurtztraminer or champagne. Excellent with fruits, cheeses and salads, this light beverage is also a great brunch choice. Try it with orange juice for a "Fox-mosa".
Note: Do NOT confuse with the Pacific Pear Cider!

Dry but very sweet. If you enjoy cider that tastes like soda, you'll enjoy this. --- Proost & Salud

Tasted in 2010 or 2011 at Happy Gnome. This is not the black label Pacific Cider which does not have apple juice. I believe that this now retired version probably did have some apple in it.
Tap. This cider is light and crisp. The aroma is apple and at first, I thought I had been given the wrong pour. The taste however is of both apple and pear. Delicately balanced.

Additional notes: Crisp apple and pear flavor with a light finish. This has a real fruit flavor, like juice. Palate is a bit dry. This leaves you wanting more, and it is rather drinkable.

Pours clear pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white head. The aroma definitely has a lot of pear. It seems like very ripe pear with the amount of sweetness to it, but it’s not a thick or cloying though. There is also a bit of a candy aspect and some traces of vanilla and milk caramel. Medium crisp body with some sharp fizzy carbonation. The taste is much like the aroma, but it is a bit drier and peppery. The finish is clear, fruity and spicy. Nice pear cider.

Bottled. Poured very light straw golden with a ring of white bubbles and nice effervescence.. looked about like what I wanted. The aroma picked up sweet, juicy pears and a touch of oak.. touches of nutmeg and other spices accented.. nice stuff. The flavor found a bunch of pears as well, with some artificial sweetener and vanilla accenting.. even sweeter on the finish. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation that moved it well across the palate.. just a little too sweet, but overall very tasty.

Pours a clear pale golden with pear and bubble gum in the nose. Flavor is pear and apple sweetness, lightly tart, with a clean, dry finish.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Very nice crisp pear aroma with mild floral notes and just a touch of vinegar. Very pale, clear, gingerale color with a good label in a standard US longneck. Dry, slightly sour, crisp, just a tad of mustiness. Body was light and lost carbonation, mild sour finish. New Leaf Market.

Growler filled at Joe Canal’s. Pours a clear light straw gold with a fizzy white head. Light bodied with a bit of carbonation, but not overly done, making for a crisp mouthfeel. Sweet and overripe green fruits- apples, pears, grapes- but leaning slightly towards a tart pear flavor. Pretty darn good for a perry. Definitely a nice sub for champagne.
