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!

Bottle pours a very pale yellow but very brilliantly clear, no head. Nose is sweet honeysuckle and lavendar. Flavor is very sweet, fruity pebbles. Highly carbonated pear juice. Not bad, but wouldn’t want more.

7/30/10. 12oz bottle into a flute. Very clear, very light yellow pour with a fizzy white head that’s gone instantly. High, tickling carbonation bites the nose as you go in for a whiff, followed by sweet apple and pear notes. The flavor is generic sweet cider, a touch of pear, a nice tartness, a hint of yeastiness, and a little creamy. Not bad.

JK (4352) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Clear. Sweet, light palate. Sweetness is not overwhelming. A little yeast, not too bad. It isn’t too sweet. At Beer Dabbler, 2010, served by Crispin Cider.

beerbill (3331) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear brilliant gold with no head. This is not a still cider and is in fact lightly effervescent. Pleasant aroma of pears. The flavor is pears with just a bit of spiciness to it. Dries out a bit at the finish with just a kiss of sweetness. Light effervescence keeps this bright on the palate. Enjoyable, especially on a hot afternoon like today.

beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Light bodied with no real head. I smell pears and well more pears. Pretty much all I can taste is the pears. Light fresh mouth feel. Great for the summer. Very nice but I have to say that I have never rated a cider.

obguthr (3651) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Nice floral pear aroma that leans toward new plastic/chemical, but is somehow still pleasant. Clear champagne colored, little carbonation visible. Honeysuckle, pear, and cotton candy flavor. Creamsicle finish. Wow, there are some really neat things happening in this perry. I’ve never tasted anything quite like it. As different as hefeweizens are to lagers this is to ordinary perries. Super!

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Bottled sample at the World Beer Festival Richmond, 6/12/10. Pours a clear pale yellow color with no head. Very big, intense, perfumey pear aroma. Fairly sweet. The taste is sweet and dry pear notes with a slightly earthy texture. Light and refreshing.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 29, 2010
In the bottle from Total Wine Tampa. Pale yellow with a fizzy effervescent white head. Pear aroma with a bit of sulfur. A very dry pear flavor, not as sweet as many perrys. OK, but not great.
