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!

One of the best ciders I’ve tasted. Doesn’t go down strong like other ciders and taste better than most ciders on the market.

Tastes of pears and smells like ape juice. A nice intro to cider. I'm still missing my strongbox though :)

Draft pour - mild straw color - no head upon arrival. Aroma is sweet pear, and not much else, but its also not ’in your face’ and quite pleasant for a cider. Flavor is very similar...some dryness mid-sip offsets some of the general sweetness of the beverage, and the pear is not fake in the least, leading to quite a good drink. Palate is good for the style - I’d enjoy these every so often, a nice rendition of the style.

On draft. Pours a crystal clear golden straw color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet apples and pears. Taste is much the same. Sweet apples, pears, grapes, with some slight tartness in the finish.
