Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with minimal to no white head. Not too much of an aroma but what it does have is sweet spices and pumpkinish. Very interesting flavors...it’s like a mead mixed with a perry. Very sweet, slightly flat, very sweet oranges...Not my thing.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2013

Bomber from New Beer. Fluted tulip.
Thought I was being gentle pouring it out, but it still came out hazy. Yellow gold body, with a near overpour of fizzy soda head.
Smell is of a tall, refreshing American wheat, garnished with a big, fat orange wedge. Phenols?
Taste is full of juicy pear, orange juice, apples, & table grapes. Comes off a lot like a low alcohol white sangria. Not seriously sweet, but very bright, & pears can’t really half ass it. Just barely a peak of banana at the tail end. Keeping this cider chilled is key.
Carbonation is low, but it still keeps the yeast kept in check. Juicy body. Constant, perfect level of acid. Little blips of tartness. Quiet alcohol.
Having had a few witbier ciders, this one surprised me with how well it kept the yeast from pumping out excessive clove/banana/plastic/rubber like I’ve had in other examples. Can’t say much for the base perry(which is probably junk), but everything put together was yummy. I really enjoyed it.

4 pack of these ciders in bombers for six bucks? Clickity! Slightly murky golden pour, thin but crisp carbonation. Interesting nose, faintly sweet but mostly quite dry and crisply spicy. Inviting. Medium prickly mouthfeel, just a touch acetic on the palate. Fruit a bit more assertive in the taste, with the pear quite pronounced. Benefits from contrast via the spice and peel. Cider’s usually not the ticket for me, but this was fairly enjoyable.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Bomber from Vintage Cellar. Pours a hazy yellow color with an instantly dissipating fizzy head. Aroma of honey, pears, earth, citrus. The taste is tart pears, vanilla, honey, mild spice and a citrus bite in the finish. Medium bodied, solid perry.

JulienHuxley (3097) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2013
Bomber bottle. Murky white pour, no head. Lots of pear aroma, light coriander notes, herbs, honey. Taste is sweet, lots of pear, chardonnay grape like sweetness, really tons of pear, even brown sugar. Carbonation is very low, palate is sweet even sticky. Not bad, but definitely not super easy drinking.

bhensonb (11089) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bomber from Nugget Market in Vacaville, CA. Pours the very light hazy gold of a typical wit. Quite temporary white head. Aroma is citrus zest and coriander. Not getting pear. Near med body. Flavor definitely has pear, but there’s also the zest and coriander. If you like wit bier you might like this. If you need to avoid gluten, this is likely to be better than most non-grain beers. The pear seems to render the finish not quite dry, but it’s a close call.
