3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Clear straw-green hue with fine effervescence, no head. Aromas of pear, green and red apple, floral perfume, jellybeans, dough yeast, wood - nice but with a bit of a paper aroma there too - not as nice. Tastes good with a nice sweetness-acidity balance and decent duration. Medium body, lighter than average carbonation, only just crisp, fairly smooth finish but with a light lingering tartness. With all the me too pear ciders coming on the New Zealand scene lately this one is better than average.
Here I am thinking this tastes almost the same as the apple cider. Easy drinking, carbonated cider.
