1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits in Halifax, NS (May 2007) sampled out of the fridge from a Corsendonk glass. A big fizzy soda-pop head vanishes instantly leaving a very clear, almost entirely colorless, lightly bubbly body; this could almost be vodka itís that clear....pear aroma is very faint, seems simultaneously artificial and underripe, slight woody character and faint spiciness (cinnamon) but really on the whole its quite weak and boring....thereís a bit more color in the flavor, but just a bit -- light pear/apple juice taste, sugary and simple, with a thin and watery body and moderate carbonation, virtually zero aftertaste except perhaps for a hint of Sprite. No thanks, I donít need anymore.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clearish yellow appearance - kind of dull. Aroma is peary, with hints of brown sugar and wood. Crisp, earthy and natural-tasting pear character again with a hint of brown sugar. I didnít hate this. The winner among macros at this tasting.

(Bottle) CW3 gathering in Victoria. Purchased at the Clear, non-carbonated. Nose is artificially peary. Very fizzy and very bad. Too fake.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
341 ml green bottle. Essentially clear with just a hint of pale straw colour. Green apple and light pear aroma. Lightly tart green apple flavour with sweet pear liqueur coming through in the finish, along with an unpleasant rotting fruit bitterness. Medium bodied and fizzy but syrupy mouthfeel.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
My homemade pear cider isnít great but at least it has more pear flavour than sugar. This stuff needs to be a lot drier, in my opinion. Poured an almost-clear sparkle with a noticeable pear aroma. Alcohol wasnít too bad but after a couple of glasses the cloying attributes begin to get tiresome. And yet...I do enjoy pears so its not so bad.

This is tasty but not what I was looking for exactly. Fruity tasting water, no color. Drank this in Tofino, British Columbia. Choices are a few here.
