That sounds amazing.  Is that a real thing or did you invent it?

I've got three different varieties of commercial pear ciders in my fridge right now... and I've made malted hard lemonade before. I'm going with "it's a real thing."

It was a small batch, so only three bottles of each.  One of those bottles, I dropped, so 2 and 3.  In about two weeks I'll sample to see if I want to do a bigger run.

Fox Barrel makes some good stuff. I highly recommend the Rhubarb/Elderberry, Ginger/Blackcurrant, and Blackberry variants.

Is cider always supposed to imply hard?

I've heard of Radlers, but never tried it. I have tried Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and I like it.

I think my first hard pear cider was ACE, and my first hard apple cider was Strongbow.

I like ciders, and I like beers. And I do occasionally mix a porter or a stout with a cider...

It's delicious...bright and fruity and not at all too hoppy for someone like me who's not a beer lover.

Leinies! SOOOO delicious. Their berry weiss is SO GOOD. That's my go-to beer when I don't know what else to get.

Can't do Berry Weiss. Too much raspberryish flavor.

Raspberry triggers my gag reflex. I was asthmatic as a child, and every goddamned cough syrup they gave me reeked of fake raspberry flavor. I can't even smell the stuff without wanting to barf.

going to convert one gallon of my apple into blackberry apple.   That sounds delicious, even though it prevents me from getting drunk on it sooner.

Make sure you get the charcoal filtered one, otherwise it will be too harsh
