Crispin Blackberry & Pear Cider
That’s got a nice aroma to it. It looks just like cranberry juice, smells like pear and tastes like blackberry and pear juice with significant sugar added. This is more like something you would drink out of a juice box through a small bendy straw in your lunch box.

Crispin Blackberry & Pear Cider
Taster at Total Wine.

"Luscious pear-berry bouquet?" You have got to be fucking kidding me. This smells like their terrible perry, with the addition of some berry cleaning fluid. After the aroma, the taste isn’t actually all that terrible. I had almost 2 oz of this and finished it, after all.

Crispin Pacific Pear
Taster at Total Wine.

Light peary pour, but clear. Pear nose, obviously. Thin, koolaid, some melon. Sweet but without richness or body. Pretty awful.

Crispin Blackberry & Pear Cider
5oz draft pour at Whole Foods Old Town Alexandria. Poured a clear light purple juice color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma was blackberry with a touch of pear juice. The pears come out of this one a lot more than I’m used to with these - where the pear is really muted which leaves just a generic juice flavor. Blackberry was a nice addition. This was a lot less sweet than I expected.

They were absolutely right when they said that this would cellar well, and I’m disappointed that I don’t have more stashed away. Mine was aged 4.5 years in a refrigerator. The aroma has good wood notes with lots of green apple, which is the biggest flavor element, but there is also complexity, not particularly of whisky but dry and rounded with a floral note. Really easy drinking, interesting. Excellent cider. Bottle.

Crispin Artisanal Reserve The Bohemian
Bottle from the grocery story.

Light, slightly hazy pour that darkens and thickens somewhat as I work my way through the bottle. Apple juice nose, strong red apple skin flavors. Relatively sweet, a bit of alcohol flavor, this one isn’t working for me. I don’t understand the high ratings. .

12 ounce bottle. Pours a ruby red with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of pear and blackberries. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a tart finish. Refreshing and easy to drink, but could use some more depth.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, yellow, very light, with a very thin white head that was gone right away. Aroma is definitely pear and some flowers (maybe?). Taste is watery, very light, very crisp, mostly pears but it has some green apple notes too. Not bad, not great; crisp, refreshing.

Crispin Pacific Pear
Clear pale. Nice friendly fruity smell. Taste is pretty good, perhaps not as sweet and a little more dry compared to many american ciders but fer sure there is plenty of unfermented sugar in there. Decent co2. Has a bit of a bite to it. Yes, somewhat annoying on the end of each swig. A little less than expected.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a thin and fleeting white head. Aroma has notable pear with a hint of orange and a touch of tartness. Flavor is champagney with nice pear, citrus rind, mild coriander and faint wildflower honey-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is light / medium and slightly lively with a finish thay dries a bit and lingers with pear/tangy orange.

Hazy pale straw, nearly milky. Minimal white rim of foam. Orange peel and fruit punch scents. Thicker feel. Sweet tart flavors. Light apple pie with citric zest. Light spice adds to the apple pie appeal. I’m finding this very easy to drink. Dry finish with just enough residuals to make you come back. I’m really kind of liking this.

Crispin Blackberry & Pear Cider
This is a fruit punch tasting beverage which apparently resembles a perry in some way I cannot personally discern. It would be soda pop style but mine is all kinds of flat. I am not sure if the seal on the cap failed or what but these guys use screw caps so they get no sympathy from me. It does not seem all kinds of oxidized or anything like it would if that were the case so, yeah, I guess this is just a bust. I recommend this for children who wish to get accidentally drunk and throw up purple juice on their moms.

Crispin Artisanal Reserve Lansdowne
Bottle that Mom found in the cabinet but who knows if it was mine or Zac’s! It’s definitely a different cider. The aroma almost has a musty, red wine slant to it. The flavor starts and finishes with mild apples but there is some strange yeastiness in the middle. Nice to try something different but this was miss for me overall.

I heard great things about this cider and bought a bottle at my local super market and I gave it a try today. It tasted very fowl to me and it reminded me of a colonoscopy prep. I love apple juice and this has now spoiled my taste for apple juice for a while. I would never buy this product again. This is just my opinion but at least I gave it a try.

bottle. Very pale straw, almost colorless with small head. The sweetness of the perry with the dry and tart red wine notes are a fantastic combination. The pear comes through well, but the combination yields some berry notes as well. faint oak. I could drink a ton of this.

Crispin Steel Town 5th Anniversary
Bomber from Total Wine, Tampa. Doré, léger voile, col blanc très effervescent et disparaissant vite, normal c’est du cidre. Arôme est très bien fruité, ample pomme, petit rétro biscuité, bourbon sur une pointe de vanille, retrouve un ajout organique du miel. Sherry perce assez bien. Palais est bien effervescent, crisp, note de pomme finement acerbe mais renforcé par une douceur des différents casks. Note une impression de chair de pomme, râpeux en bouche et un agréable profil Bourbon. Côté Porto/Sherry ajoute cette sensation de caramélisé-grillé vin chaud.

Another well-composed and thoughtful cider from Crispin--there have been some duds, but also enough interesting ones to redeem my confidence in the future of American cider making. This one is a gorgeous looking, with a hazy, off-white appearance that promises a lot of natural funk. Light pear notes overtaken by citrus, sour, light spicing. More-ish. Light alcohol note only. Bottle.

22 oz bottle poured. Beautiful bottle really. I always like a bottle that I can read a nice story off of while I enjoy it. Served with an ice cube, like the bottle suggests. Big rum forward aroma. Flavor is a sweet green apple. 99% of the rum presence is in the aroma. Subtle oaky rum finish. Overall an awesome cider here. Stand out for sure.

Pour is a hazy brownish gold, unfiltered look to it. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Smell is honey, apple, sweetness. Taste follows, but also has a vague vinegar and weird funkiness to it. I didn’t really like it at first, and it didn’t really grown on me either.

12oz Bottle. Clean, boring, alomst scentless aroma, with a bit of pear and distant perfume. Flavor is insipid. Boring, mostly flavorless drab fermented sugar flavor. There’s not much here. It’s more than a little sweet for "brut."

not sure of the age - pretty nice overall with a slightly different yeastiness not usually present. Don’t know that I’d be able to tell it was pils yeast if the bottle didn’t tell me, though.

Cool unique cider - never had a blend of pear and red wine, and it works pretty well. Crisp pear and berries and oak on the nose and palate. Body is light, but that’s ok.

Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent, nearly hazy gold. Aroma of apples, rum and a suggestion of treacle. Near med body. Flavor is apple, honey/sugar in small quantity, trace of treacle, and some rum. Not as much rum as I’d like tho. Still it makes a very drinkable cider.

Hazed golden color with a quickly diminished head. Light aromas with apples, oak and bits of spiced rye. Flavor are abundant, with apples, rye, port, oak, light cinnamon, ad hint of alcohol. Semi dry finish with a bit of marzipan and agave. Not your mother’s cider, more like your grandmother’s cider (the grandmother who had a flask of whiskey in her apron).

Atlanta, GA - Whole Foods - Briarcliff - 22 oz bomber. Hazy, light golden pour, no real head. Fresh, juicy, just cut apples kind of aroma. Flavor is full bodied and delicious apple flavor with some natural tasting Gala apple notes, a hint of sourness, some natural vanilla notes, not artificial at all. Decently thick mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

It's the best hard cider I have had thus far. It's their sweeter variety as it has maple syrup in it. But the sugar content is 8grams with 1.83 servings in this bottle. Bottoms Up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
