Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell:
Semi-strong aroma, Musty, sweet, ice-cider-like aspects. Some pear notes.
Initial Taste: Medium bite from carbonation. Sweet and semi-syrupy pear. Thick but not sugary. Some acidity and musty/earthy.
After Taste: Becomes flatter and even more like an apple cider.  Pear become more noticeable the more you get into the bottle.  Has a bit of a metallic finish. Very cellared and aged tasting.
On ice: Much thinner. Less metallic notes.

Additional Notes:  The Eric Bordelet – Poire Authentique is a unique Perry, its taste profile is like a thicker apple cider, but still has notes of a deep, ripe pear.  Sweet but not sugary, it finishes slightly dry and full-flavoured. It tastes rustic.
