330ml bottle from Master of Malt. Pale golden colour with a short-lived white foam head. Nose of pears, caramel. Taste is fruity, pear, sweet, melon, with some caramel, hay and white wine notes. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, dry and residual sweet finish. Quite OK.

(Bottle) Clear pale golden with perhaps a lime green tint, and no head. Pleasant aroma of tart apple / pear with a hint of funk and possibly wood. Light bodied with plenty of pleasant carbonation. Nice taste, a little sweet for me, but there’s enough else going on to make this in interesting drink. Starts of light and slightly tart, then develops in the mid palate plenty of fruit flavours, which knowing it is made of pears I can identify as pears, but would otherwise just be an interesting fruitiness. Following this the funky, woody notes make a subtle reappearance adding some class. I did catch those funky notes sometimes in the foretaste too. Overall very drinkable, but a touch too sweet.

Bottle 33 cl at Royal Albert Hotel, Sydney, on July 18, 2013.
I accidentally rubbed off the BB date when getting rid of some condensation...
Clear pear color, no head. Sweet, a bit tart, cidery, sort of vinous taste, hints of sulphides, more apple than pear to me. Fruity, dry aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel to a bit fizzy, pretty much no bitterness, but some fruit peel touch. Sweet, fruity scent.

A shadow of this cideries wonderful apple cider - this one I see as more crowd pleasing and easy to drink so on a completely different level. Produces up with subtlety and silence; a sparkling medium gold with light carbonation. There is a lot of tart, tight fruit on the nose; acidic, raw and rough with a shimmer of oak and orchard. In the mouth it is sprightly, light bodied and racy in mouthfeel. Just enough ripe and tart, vinous fruit plays on the palate and into the pleasantly acidic and crisp swallow. The wood of the aroma builds in the linger. Alarmingly easy to drink. More toned than the assertively delicious cider, but still a great Summer quaffer. (33cL, BB 18/07/13, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef)
