Today's Review: Stella Artois Pear Cidre

Man, I wish I'd had it in a chalice like that. Probably would have made the experience more enjoyable.

I'm not really a drinker. I normally get stinking drunk on my birthday when people have to buy me drinks, but I could live without. I also don't like beer, so I should probably just give up my testicles right now. I like my alcohol fruity, because if you haven't noticed, most alcohol tastes like crap. I have settled on cider in recent years to give me an enjoyable experience, and Kopparberg is normally my go to, due to the variety of flavours they offer.

But now Stella Artois are in the cider, sorry, cidre, business, and now they have a pear flavour to compete with my beloved Kopparberg. I thought I'd humour them and give it a go. It's actually pretty nice. Even though cider is normally quite fruity, I do find the alcohol taste gets too much for me by the end of the bottle. But this was a smooth experience all the way through. So yes, I'm impressed, this is a very nice drink. Probably tastes even better in that chalice.

My rating: 5/5


  1. I do not like the style of Stella glasses, I think they are daft and too feminine. Although I am a real ale drinker, I do enjoy their premium lager in any glass. I have not tried their cidre/cider so thanks for your review.

  2. +1 for Pear Cidre!! Need to try Apple now. Wasn't expecting much but It blew me away
