  • Style: (dry) Pear Cider
  • Taste: Natural-tasting tangy/sour white wine pear-muscat
  • Where I got it : Bottle Jockey / N. Bby
  • How much: $15 (after 7.5% off) – 750 ml., September 2015
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to cider aficionados: yes, quite different from local BC ciders

Visual: Hefty bottle, quality cap. Pours clear straw yellow with very lively dissipating head, very active large CO clusters and singular champagne streams.

Nose: juicy muscat, white wine tangy acidic. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp, BIG-fizzy CO2

Mid-palate: yeasty tangy-sour, half-bright juicy pear-muscat, (lvl-1-sweetness), pear peel

Finish: burpy, residual sour acidity, dry fruity

Summary: Big full mouthfeel and a solid pear-muscat body. You can be confident of the inherent quality by the weight of the bottle and the vigor the CO2 pour. Quite drinkable, not terribly complex but worth my $$$.
