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!

From tap at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Pours clear and pale greenish yellow with a fully diminished head. Citric pear aroma. Flavour is clean and crisp sweet pears with a nice lingering acidic/citric flavour into the finish. Ends quite fruity and citric. Nice, although I guess the heat at this place helped me enjoy this one more than I would have done anywhere else.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 15, 2007
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.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
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.

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.

hopdog (8933) - 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.
