Sonoma Cider’s “The Pitchfork” pear cider delivers a light golden, clear pour and leaves a circle of foam around the edge. It’s pretty. The nose throws a searing candied pear aroma; a very sweet, linear aroma of pear that leaves little to the imagination. Additionally, there is a distinct floral note in this pear cider, a note that leans toward honeysuckle or lemon blossom. It’s a light bodied cider on the palate that shows its effervescence, good acidity and a hint of tannin around the edge. It’s a very interesting flavor mix here. Again with the floral character. There’s the feeling of sucking on blossoms then licking a sweet pear. Sugar is evident, but hardly the dominant characteristic. Just enough to make you smile and take another sip. This is an interesting, well-rendered, highly aromatic pear cider that is going to please lots of drinkers.
