2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear "pear" color. Pear aroma, but it suggests a mild sake. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is pear, but it’s a lot more than just skin. It’s mildly sweet, and almost perfumey. Finishes clean. Pretty good for something that could be considered almost flavorless in a way. Ya can’t sip just once.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Really tasty cider. Pours a light orange with a fizzy white head. Light pear aroma. Flavor is outrageously sweet, almost candy-like, and the pear backbone shines through. Quite juicy, the alcohol is almost imperceptible. If you’re into this kind of thing (sweetness, juiciness, etc.), you will love this cider.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a minimal sparkling white head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing. Medium green pear fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth dry texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet pear flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Worth having twice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A light yellow perry with strong chemical pear extract, a bit cloying and fake. In mouth, a pop Dennis nectar like drink, pear pulp in finale, very boring. Bottled, at ROC Empire Brewfest, Feb. 19 2011.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a super pale, clear body, with no real head to speak of. Aroma is not bad surprisingly. Decently ripe pear, some acidity, a bit of spring water, champagne and honey. A little bit estery in the finish. Surprisingly not super sweet smelling. Taste is fresh pear, a bit of shampoo, car seat cleaner, mildly acidic beginning. Long duration of suntan lotion. Watery, really not offensive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pony Bar. Poured a clear gold with a slight green tint, visible carbonation and no head whatsoever. Aroma had notes of dry and sweet pear with a bit of a sugary syrup note. A bit syrupy with sweet pear and a hint of dry pear underlying. A bit sweet for my liking.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear very pale yellow with just hints of a white head at the edges. Smells spot on for Del Monte canned pears in syrup, especially the syrup. Thin and watery. Tastes like water that someone somewhere maybe once had a pear near. Finishes tasting essentially like nothing, with just a faint touch of sweetness. The kind of thing that were the glass and bottle in front of me, I might forget that I had just consumed it. Very, very forgettable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. An odd yellow-green color, like a watered-down lemon-lime gatorade. No head, just a few bubbles floating on top from the active carbonation underneath the surface. The pear juice seems to add a nice tartness to the cider, but besides that, there’s not much else to this. Mild to medium sweet taste. Carbonation is just shy of being too thick. Mild dryness in texture helps, but there’s still some oily mouthfeel.. Gets pretty boring halfway through. This stuff is probably way better straight from the bottle.
