Decided to take a mini-break from the beer the other day and picked up this wonderful sounding alcoholic beverage at the local market. Spire Mountain Pear Cider comes to us from the folks at Fish Brewing Company where the last beer we had from them was the Fish Tale Organic IPA – Soundkeeper. Not a great beer… but I am sure they make some good ones.
So… how was this? Very, very middle of the road… really nothing interesting about it other than it has alcohol in it. It was very light, a bit cider-ish, but really mellow. It was the color of standard apple juice and had a pretty strong alcohol smell. Very bubbly. Somewhat hit the spot on a warm day but I would have rather had a beer.
This one takes the low end of Middle of the Road for sure.
