3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big bottle shared at home away from home from Simply in Strasbourg. As Cidre & Poire. Clear light golden with no head and barely any visible carbonation. Quite sweet apple and pear juice, also quite some fruity sourness with almost lemon juice like sharpness. Light grassy and mineral, and in the background there’s a light earthy touch. Mainly very juicy though. Under medium sweet and sour. Thin bodied with low fizzy carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear light golden colour; Razor thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Minimal sticky lacing and slight carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of pear flesh and juice, with apple puree, sugar, faint wood and faint tannic; Medium sweet taste of pear flesh, with strong yoghurt tartness, strong wood barrel and light tannic; Light body. Thin and very tart palate; Mouth feel is fresh pear puree in light winey background. Strong yoghurt tartness being balanced with just right fruity sweetness. Fruity palate throughout with strong woody presence. Nice!…
Fairly dry after taste. Fruity sweet and quite tart to mouth.
Comments: The essence of pear wine is here, with very strong pear and apple freshness and cider tartness. I am a fruity cider fan so I enjoy it quite naturally, if only a bit more booze will do this one more wonders. Enjoyable!

33cl bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours very pale yellow, exceedingly sweet, sugary pear taste. Has an artificial, chemical pear flavour and perhaps a touch of apple fruitiness but really just way too sweet for me to be enjoyable.
