Pours a very very light yellow with a very small head. The aroma is Earthy, almost mushroomy with a hint of sweet pear. The flavor is much drier than I was expecting. Earthy, slightly sour, crisp and refreshing. This being said... I would still rather have a beer.

guil0000 (255) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 30, 2010
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

nuplastikk (4351) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2010
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.

drowland (6001) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2010
On tap. Generic cider taste that is hardly noticeably pear. Clear, fizzy, and generally sweet... Meh.

dwyerpg (4552) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2010
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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
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.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2009
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.

Drake (8505) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2009
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.
