Slightly mealy pear aroma. Some strange gluey walpaper paste too. Pale, but quite dark for a pear cidre, clear, and definitely frisson. Taste fuller and sweater than the aroma, more apple and peary esters. Still a bit mealy in places. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth, with a nice sharp tartness that hacks through the fattiness of the ribs I just ate beatifully. Finish preserves the best parts of the taste, the tartness and sweet fruity esters. Perhaps not intrinsically great, but at 2.5% this is lush, and a perfect complement to fatty and spicy food.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn) (7:3:6:2:13=3.1)
Super sweet apple and pear aroma, pure fresh fruit, even baked apple, complete with some hint of sweet raisin. Crisp palate, sharp, a little thin and fizzy. Nice fruity taste, again plenty of apple, some baked apple, just a hint of pear. Shame about the petilance, too high for me even on a hot summery day.
