3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Apalachee - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling light golden ginger ale-like pour with nice bubble action and no head. Aroma has some sweet pear accents, a touch of vanilla, pleasant. Flavor is pretty full bodied for a perry, with some tangy pear fruitiness, a touch of club soda, some light vanilla accents. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it, Very refreshing.

The added vanilla flavor doesnít play nice with the pear flavor, leading to an odd almost medicinal flavor. It also has a rather thick texture.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12 oz green bottle an orangey hay hue. formed little to no head. Aroma strong of pears, clay and wheat grass. flavour strong up front with pear, apple comes through sharply. Again, Scottish wheat grass comes to mind. Ending is lightly tart. Not a big fan of the style, decent enough I guess.

12oz bottle. Light golden yellow. Light fizz. Aroma of tart apple meat & sweet pear juice. Tastes of applesauce, hints of pear extract. Finishes tart with pear sugars. Essence of fructose. Not as good as Hatchet, but loved it. (4136)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a rich gold with a faint hint of pink and no head, though there is visible carbonation. Nose is quite strong, and definitely pear; nicely enough, itís the fruit, not some sort of bizarre pear candy. Semi-dry with good fruit flavor on the front of the mouth; manages to convey the slight creamy richness that a good pear has, and has a touch of spice to it. Finish is long, dry, and a little metallic. This is pretty good.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Clear, light medium golden with a hint of brown, poor light head and no real lace. Simple vanilla oxidized nose. No bright fruit. Coarse and dead. Palate is dry, acid, carbonated and hollow. Lacks fruit flavor. Oak flavors make it look like candy.
At least the anvil was bombed with artifact.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is very sweet and fruity with a slightly medicinal syrup quality. The appearance is light gold with no head. The taste is drier than the aroma but has the medicinal quality. The palate is thin but OK for the style. Overall worth a try maybe but not great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. golden with minimal head. this seems woefully underrated. sweet with some light apple tartness. big vanilla undertone. fantastic flavors. iím not sure where the vanilla is coming from but it works amazingly well, and is something that other cidermakers should do.
