Kopparberg Pear Cider

Happily, my earli­er intol­er­ance to Packham Pears seems to have passed, which means I can enjoy the fresh fruit again in all its non-cider forms. But I still enjoy pear ciders and this here is Kopparberg Pear Cider.

The cider is a trans­lu­cent pale straw col­our with a sweet pear nose and mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled, crisp notes of fresh pear come through in the head before the fra­grant fla­vours of pear devel­op in the body with a bal­anced sweet­ness. The cider leaves a refresh­ingly clean fin­ish and a subtle sweet­ness linger­ing on the pal­ate. The notes of pear are bright and refresh­ing without being too scen­ted or com­plex, while the cider pleas­antly avoids any hint of bit­ter­ness char­ac­ter­ising alco­hol.

This bottle of Kopparberg Pear Cider con­tained 500 ml. It was pro­duced in Sweden and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
