3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the winery. Deep golden colour with a sticky set of legs coating the glass. The nose is of ripe pear with a little bit of almost smoky phenolics coming off. Spiced fruit and deep rich pear flavour as well. The aroma is lovely but the palate is fairly unbalanced with not enough acid to support the intense sweetness of the cider. It comes across a little bit flabby as a result, unfortunately.

Sampled at winery, this stuff was interesting. You could taste the sugars that were in there for the icing of the pear. it was pretty sweet and easy to drink. it wasnt amazing but it was decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the winery. Pours a clear yellow-orange with no head. Nice sweet aroma of pears and beeswax (thanks jerc & mabel). Sweet and lightly tart flavour of pears and other fruit -- quite different, it’s enjoyable. Medium bodied. Quite good, I like this one more then their regular Pear (the Poire Sec), which, in my opinion, is an acquired taste.

[2762-20100213] 375mL bottle. Beeswax candle syrup with raisin aroma. Clear, dark bright orange body with no head. Sweet apple fruit flavour has a long sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Quite odd at first.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-02-13. Dark yellow body with some legs on the glass. 3+ Interesting aroma is not what I was expecting, and is perplexing at first with some odd notes - something that my memory puts somewhere between Christmas cake and beeswax candles is the dominant note. 6+ Flavour is tart around the edges with a sweeter core. Fruit, pears, beeswax like note, sweet middle, odd fruit skin character in the finish with occasional notes of butterscotch covered pears as it warms up. Pleasant, very different, and a bit odd at times. Bottle from the winery
