A's Review: * * * *
Not too sweet, not too dry. A very nice drink if you don't want apple cider or beer. A flavor that does not show up very often in alcoholic beverages.

Z's Review: * * * * *
Since being gluten-free eliminates most types of beers, cider makes an excellent alternative. I really like this pear cider because it's light and fresh and not too sweet. The pear flavor gives the cider an interesting kick that a regular apple-based cider doesn't have. But, at the same time, the flavor is also a bit subtle, which made me want to keep taking another sip to taste it again until the bottle was totally empty! Of all the Woodchuck cider's we have tried (amber, 802, granny smith, raspberry) this one is my favorite.


  1. My friend Margaret is beer-averse, and is obsessed with Woodchuck... I mean, kind of creepily so. I'm intrigued to hear of this mystical variety pack!

    In other GF scouting news, I saw some tapioca burger and hot dog buns at my local hippie shop, and I'd have bought them and tried them as an experiment, but I was making curry, not burgers. I'd be interested to hear your opinion as GF experts if you can find them: http://www.ener-g.com/store/detail.aspx?section=5&cat=5&id=54

  2. Venturing into the world of gluten-free breads is on our to do list in the near future! Gluten-free bread can be really tricky. The one's we tried before we started this blog were often crumbly and/or too dense. And we never tried a burger bun. In fact, I've been eating my burgers sans buns for months, so maybe it's time! We'll certainly let you know what we discover!
