The Pitchfork Pear Cider
Sonoma Beverage Co., Healdsburg, CA

I am a fan of ciders.  I particularly love pear ciders.  Ever since the 2003 IPMS Nationals in Oklahoma City where I tasted the most perfect of beverages, Ace Pear Cider, I’ve been a fan.  Unfortunately, Ace isn’t available in Kentucky, though it is available at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati OH.  (I stop by every time I pass thru.)

So, since I can’t get Ace Pear Cider, I am always on the lookout for something that comes close to that perfection.  Our latest entry comes close.  Out of California, it is 6% ABV.  It is slightly on the dry side.  It reminds you a bit of Strongbow or Smith & Forge.

Like most ciders it has little or no bite or aftertaste.  It is very smooth and enjoyable.  This firm also makes an Apple Cider and an Apple Cider blended with bourbon.  I will say based on this drink I will try the others if I get an opportunity.

Beer review: Sierra Nevada Kellerweis

Kellerweis

Kellerweis

Time for another beer review.  Surprise, surprise, its another wheat beer.  Its Sierra Nevada’s Kellerweis.  The beer is a pretty classic unfiltered wheat beer.  It is 4.8% ABV.  It has a very pleasant aroma.  Is smells strongly of banana and you get both a banana flavor and a hint of vanilla in the initial taste.  The manufacturer also notes a hint of cloves in the taste, but I did not get that until much later in the beer.

I’ve previously reviewed a banana flavored beer here.   As in that case, the banana flavor was good.  I had the beer with steak and rice and grilled veggies and it was good.  The brewer recommends having it with salmon or brats.  I am not sure about the salmon, but I can really see this one going very well with brats.

I previous wrote about the idiot government nannies in San Francisco trying to ban Happy Meals.  Well, they did it.  An the results are predictable.  Nice to see McDonalds get the last laugh.
