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 nearly clear with only a trace of straw color to it and a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is just a tad spicy – hints of clove and nutmeg – and I’m picking up plenty of pear. Full-bodied and oily with lively carbonation. The flavor is medium sweet and fruity with a whisper of acidity. Short, crisp, clean finish. I could drink a lot of this.

On draft at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours clear yellow-green with a white head. Nose is pear, some sugar, and lots of sweetness. Flavor is similar with a gentle fruit and sugar hit. Enjoyable and sessionable pear cider.

Sampled in bottle on 20th anniversary beer tour. I’m usually a big fan of ciders, especially pear ciders, but this beer just doesn’t do it. It tastes like low-quality apple juice made from concentrate. Pear flavor barely there. Just not good at all, not even recommended for tasting.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 From a 12 oz bottle in florida. Aroma of perfumy light pear perfume. Smooth initial flavor impressions, yum. Very little alky bite. You can tell this is perry and will not confuse it with apple cider. Tho no visible carbonation, there is good tingle and CO2 bite on the tongue. The finish leaves you with the similar processesed or industrial flavors that are common in their ciders. Good overall perry experience, want more, yea.

Bottle, Honolulu. Pours a clear yellow, It does have a slight aroma of pear. I like it for pear. I like it more than an apple cider for warm climates. Light and crisp and I like it

This is my first cider, it was out of pure curiosity, but it’s pretty good. The aroma is fruity and sweet. It reminds me a lot of light fruity wine, or champagne.

On tap, Bottle Works. Color is pale gold. Aroma of green apples, Muscat grapes, a bit of paint. Flavor starts with lemon and pear zing, with distinct green grapes. Flavor moves sweet in the middle, leading into a semi-dry finish. Not bad, but I’m not that interested in this.

You know pretty good actually. I kind of thought this was a cheap cider, and its not particularly complex, but the pear taste is solid and its a crisp cider no matter what.
