355mL thanks to CaptainCougar. A recent want list item for me! Thanks a ton! The pour is a clear gold with white bubbles appearing. Aroma is light urine, pear, moving to 100% canned, sweetened pear sections. Taste is ultra sweet, pear juice, ash, aspartame, light tartness. Syrupy sweet palate. Ick.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: Pours a clear bright bronze with a thin ring of wispy-white head. Has a lightly sweet apple nose with lots of fresh oak. Starts with a good light apple sweetness and has plenty of complex oaky balance before a drier toasty finish. A decent take on their normal cider.
