I probably won't spend a lot of time in study between now and the third annual Cider Summit--I've got that other project to consider. I may spend a little. Over the weekend, I decided to drown my cider-summit-missing-sorrows in a bottle of Pear Anthem--a line of Wandering Aengus. Despite the name, it's not a perry (cider made of pears), but an apple cider with a minority of pear. A lovely tipple, quite dry and tart--leaning in the direction of Brussels, if you want the truth--with floral blossom notes and something spicy underneath. Ciders may have flavor elements that remind one of wine or lambic, and this one had both.
Man cannot live by beer alone. I recommend a trip to the store for a cider to shake things up, palate-wise. A change of pace is a good thing.
