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!

steview (1019) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
bomber from beverage store on camp pendleton near main gate, flute glass / fizzy pour, straw body, nearly no white head; not really soft bodied, actually--definitely pear, obviously... not quite near champagne; personally, it needs a creamier yet sharp mouthfeel with much more bubbles...

ZiggyG (131) - Gladstone, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours light transparent yellow. Tiny fizzy head that crackles like a freshly poured coke. smell is light and tangy more of apples than pear. Kind of an acidic note in the nose. The taste is dryer than I expected with a good taste of pear and an acidic squelch in the back of the throat. Palate is light and lively with carbonation going wild in the mouth. This is a pretty good but not great.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a light a clear yellow color with almost no head. Wow, talk about a fresh pear aroma. Some light apples in the background, but this one was all pears. Tastes of pears and apples. I really don’t like pears or ciders for that matter, but I liked this one.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is one of the best ciders I’ve had. It is a bit sweet, but not as sweet as many, and the flavour and taste are fruity and very good. It is crisp and clean
