Pear Cider ~ Fox Barrel Cider Company

Appearance: clear light yellow pear hues with a tease of green. Pours with fizz which quickly disappears.

Nose: like biting into a super ripe pear juice so sweet you’d wonder if it was artificially sweetened. FlambĂ©ed and roasted pears with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. Plump juicy sun-dried yellow raisins.

Palate: sweet and silken up front. Fresh pears in the middle. Pear skins tingle atop the tongue, lightly dry and bitter-sweet. Green along edges with more skin in the back swallow. Plump juicy yellow raisins in the middle.

Final Thoughts: ground-breaking no but better than expected yes. Sweet without being saccharine and the fact that it is a perry and not a cider is tastefully obvious. I’d drink it again.
