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!

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.

Light gold pour. Not much head. Crisp and sweet pears in the aroma and flavor. Very refreshing and very easy to drink. Very good for the style.

Bottle. Real good pear aroma on the nose just like the fruit. Fizzy bubbles all over the pint glass. Hazy gold body with head that fizzled out quick. Fruit pear flavored jucie with some carbination to it. Decent refreshment after working outside in the heat for couple of hours.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Light golden fizzy pour with little head. Nose is Bartlett pear. Tastes peary, with a nice natural pear flavor. A bit watery, with spare carbonation. Refreshing.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours an almost transparent light champagne yellow with a small fizzy ring for a head and lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is orchard, pears, apples and alight acidity. Flavor is juicy pears, golden apples, light sweetnews and a touch of cidery sourness. Easy to drink loads of carbonation and fairly one dimensional. Decent perry cider.

Draft. A light golden perry with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of pears. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruits and berries as well as notes of berries, leading to a dry finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2009
clear pour is a pale straw color with a short lived white head. intoxicating aroma.... so floral and sweet tree fruit... pears, flowers and straw... unfortunately, that is about it. it is quite one dimensional as is the flavor... earthy, fruity, a tiny bit musty and a bit sweet with a long lasting floral aftertaste. i know that there are additives and artificials in here but... it’s pretty damn good. especially as the heat gets more oppressive. medium body and easy drinking. carbonation is crisp but somewhat subdued... 8/3/6/3/14/3.4

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle stamped 2009. Pours a clear, pale gold with no head. Aroma is sweet and spritzy with pear and what reminds me of Clearly Canadian’s soda lineup. Taste seems like artificial pear, soda and sweetners. Very light bubbles, dry and thin. Very sweet and sticky.

PorterPounder (5448) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2009
Ft. Myers, Fl. - Total Wines - 12 oz bottle - pours a very light golden with little to no head. Clean aroma with hints of pears and golden delicious apples. Crisp pear flavor that is somewhat natural tasting and not overly sweet. Mouhtfeel is clean and crisp. Pleasantly surprised.

Smells fantastic, like a perry should. Tastes sweet and slightly soda-like. Could probably use a little more carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid cider.
