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!

Poured a very light yellow with no head. Nose of apples and pears. A lot of carbonation, and a nice crisp mouthfeel. Favors were mostly pear with a hint of apple. A very drinkable cider

Bottle. The aroma is pear, much like sniffing a ripe bartlett. The color is water lightly tinged with gold. No head. Some tiny bubbles. Thin to medium bodied. Spritzy carbonation. The flavor starts with ripe pear, finishes with a slight sour like pear or apple skin. Quite clean, and very refreshing.

Crystal clear with light green coloring. Champagne-like bubbles. Cidery tart smell, somewhat hard to describe. It taste like low sugar pears and green apple jolly ranchers. Odd taste indeed. I like it alot though. All ciders feel like champagne to me. I need to chill it next time

On tap @ The Bistro poured a clear yellow with a small disapating white head. Aromas of pear and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of pear, light apple and a hint of vanilla with a crisp lightly sweet finish.

Well, this would be rating #1700 for me if grant wasn’t holding 2 of my ratings hostage at his apartment. Now that I think about it, this is probably 1707 or something because I have had some ratings deleted and lost. Either way, this is my first rating of a Perry. Aroma is rather floral and acetic. Some definite pear-like fruitiness is also present in the nose. Kind of smells like cheap perfume or something your girlfriend would buy from Bath and Body Works. Pale pale dehydrated urine color with a quickly dissipating, spritzy white head. There is a nice little lace going on, though. Sweet, sugary, fruity pear-like start. Lots of floral flavors in the middle. The finish is a bit bland and somewhat watery. Very perfumey. Drinking this is like giving a perfumed girl a hickey.

Pear. Expect nothing less. Refreshment is a yes and compelxity is a no. Good thing to have around when somebody wants a Smirnoff of some type.

Pour is a clear very pale yellow. Flavors and aroma of very sweet pear. Light and fruity with not much complexity, but still a good change.

22oz. bottle. Extremely pale yellow coloration, substantial effervescence. Pear flesh and skin mingle with a sharp sweetness in the aroma. Crisp pear flavors belie a very soft, almost under-attenuated sweetness. Residual fruitiness in the finish with some carbonic acid tinges and a lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is a light medium, sticky to the brink of cloying.

Bottle, BevMo La Mesa. Pours a very light yellow color. Slightly sweet, slightly tart pear aroma. Sweet flavor right up front. Very little bitterness. Sweet candy finish. Pretty decent cider.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Quite the light and refreshing cider. VERY soft on the palate, this one is slightly sweet, not really all that dry and quick to finish with a clean palate with no cloying aftertaste at all. I’d have to say probably one of my favorite ciders so far.
