Feels a touch sweet following the Zeffer Apple but noticialbly less acidity which may account for the perception of sweetness. Good fruit through the palate and a seamless finish. One of the nicer pear ciders I have tried.

Honey notes on the nose. A slight sweetness that doesn’t linger. Good notes of pear with a slightly tropical finish. All in all a very good pear cider at the dryer end of the scale.

very subtle flavours. a little on the sweet side but it’s so subdued that it’s not really much of anything. pears are hiding in there somewhere. it isn’t bad but it’s oddly shy and could be a bit more...well, existent.

Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a clear pale watery yellow with a slight white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has mild dry pear with just a touch of sweetness. Flavor has dry/tart pear with some sweetness coming through.

Bottle. Hazy yellow, scant bubbles. Aroma of dusty and fleshy pear, subtle citrus. Taste is semi sweet fruit. Full bodied. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not over done by the pear which is pleasing as some pear ciders can be overly musky with too much pear in them. This one is rather relaxed and a little subdued. Light tartiness to begin with which is drawn out by a very dry pear finish. Nicely done and very velvety on the palate

Pale, sharp and dry. The alcohol adds more sweetness than the fruit, and the palate is a little musty. Disappointing.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale straw with a pinkish hue. Quite a sweet and sour pear aroma. The palate starts out with a big tartness that draws out in the aftertaste. The pear flavour is not strong, this is more about the palate - sour and slightly musty.
