COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hard Pear Cider is a dryer, soft bodied cider which is light and refreshing. Itís 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 Iíve tasted. Doesnít go down strong like other ciders and taste better than most ciders on the market.

Nice floral pear aroma that leans toward new plastic/chemical, but is somehow still pleasant. Clear champagne colored, little carbonation visible. Honeysuckle, pear, and cotton candy flavor. Creamsicle finish. Wow, there are some really neat things happening in this perry. Iíve never tasted anything quite like it. As different as hefeweizens are to lagers this is to ordinary perries. Super!

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

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 From a 12 oz bottle in florida. Aroma of perfumy light pear perfume. Smooth initial flavor impressions, yum. Very little alky bite. You can tell this is perry and will not confuse it with apple cider. Tho no visible carbonation, there is good tingle and CO2 bite on the tongue. The finish leaves you with the similar processesed or industrial flavors that are common in their ciders. Good overall perry experience, want more, yea.

Tasted in 2010 or 2011 at Happy Gnome. This is not the black label Pacific Cider which does not have apple juice. I believe that this now retired version probably did have some apple in it.
Tap. This cider is light and crisp. The aroma is apple and at first, I thought I had been given the wrong pour. The taste however is of both apple and pear. Delicately balanced.

Additional notes: Crisp apple and pear flavor with a light finish. This has a real fruit flavor, like juice. Palate is a bit dry. This leaves you wanting more, and it is rather drinkable.

Bottle. Not a beer but really good and refreshing for what it is. Would get this again if I was in the mood for something different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 This is one of the best ciders Iíve 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
