Pours a yellow clear sparkling wine color. Aroma mostly of green apple and a bit of pear. It has a sour acidity taste to it with a lot o sweetness. This is my first cider and I kinda liked it

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml can, as pictured. Clearish yellow non-color, light white wine. Some fizzy carbonation bubbles. Sugary green apple and pear aroma. Ridiculously poundable, light and easy body, not much depth. An odd sourness, probably the added acid, gives the beer a slightly harsh feel, killing any natural pear feel. I love the idea of a pear cider, but this is pretty weak.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Generic cider taste that is hardly noticeably pear. Clear, fizzy, and generally sweet... Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much aroma. This is a fairly sweet cider, and the 16oz can makes it seem like almost too much to drink. However, the light pear flavor, while quite sweet, is nice for a change.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale straw colour with a light greenish tint. The nose is quite sweet with a bit of tart ascorbic nose. Sweet and candyish with a distinct green apple quality. Nothing like pear... just an odd sweet neutral fruitiness and a lingering artifical tartness. It’s pretty damn poor really.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma isn’t too far off from the style but it does have a sour, sulfur smell that makes it impossible to appreciate the sweet and tart fruity pears. The appearance is almost clear with a bit of gold and a tiny head. The taste is like the aroma with a rotten taste covering the crisp fruit. The palate is thin but OK. Overall this is way to flawed to enjoy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 mL can from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very pale straw yellow color with a thin fizzy head, appearing very much like a white wine. Aroma of tart pears, tannic notes and plastic. Taste is tart pears, apples, grapes, water. Thin and watery. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. New Leaf Market - 500 ml can. Pours a sparkling very light golden with a tiny bubbly white head. Aroma is pleasant with a natural pear essence to it and a hint of chardonnay. Flavor is of pears of course, pretty natural tasting and pleasant. Not chemically tasting like some of these tend to be. Crisp mouthfeel. Pleasant diversion.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Unremarkable aroma. Initially astringent, on the dry side compared to common, generally-available American pear ciders. Clear, only slightly gingerale tinged. Ghastly can. Effervescent pour, no head, goes flat. Meh.
