Bottle shared. Pours like white wine with no head. Aroma of sweet pears, soft honey, ripe pear skin, wood and a light funk. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate acidic. Medium bodied with light Champaigne like carbonation.

transparent straw, thin fizzy white head dies fast. Tons of apple pie in nose, crust, white grape skin. Soft honey front palate, light floral and tons of Granny Smith and yellow delicious, lightly sour, faintly sticky in the slick finish, bit thick for profile.

Had some of this from the wife’s bottle today... Super juicy ripe pear essence with good carbonation... incredibly tasty, but expensive for what it is... $16 for the 750.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL from Pear in Pike Place Market, Seattle, WA. Pours a sparkling golden, fizzing out white head. Nothing special. Nose is simply an incredible juicy brown pear, fuzzy skin, mild baked pie. You want to dive right in. And hot damn does the taste deliver- huge lactic sour balance atop clean and juicy brown and yellow pear flesh. Mild pear pie crust, cobbler and vanilla thickness gets annihilated by lightly tannic and hugely tart pineapple, peach, and passionfruit yogurt. Absolutely perfect balance makes other perrys and ciders look silly. The best there is for style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 3-27-2009 (Corked and caged bottle) This Perry pours a small white very fizzy head with good retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is sweet, earthy and a lot of pear. The Taste is very sour, very tart, acidic, a lot of pear, and a dry finish. The Palate is slightly tingly and this is a medium bodied Perry. Overall, the Aroma and Taste is over-the-top pear. It is too much pear for my liking. This Perry is worth trying, but not one that I am likely to want to drink again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at my grandparents shared with family. Pour is bright clear yellow with a big Champagne head that quickly dissipated. Musty, waxy, old cheesy, bright fruity, yeasty, and ligh oaky aroma. Taste is very bright and refreshing - fresh pear juice, apples, lightly tart, yeast, a hint of maraschino cherries and wood. Light body with crisp carbonation. Really nice perry.

High fidelity to pear in all aspects. Intense aroma of juicy pear flesh and earthy skin. A touch of sweetness that finishes dry. Balanced acidity. Plenty of carbonation. No off or secondary flavors, just ripe pear.

75 cl bottle from Takamura online. Pale gold, tall head quickly vanishing to lace, lots of bubbles. Lovely ripe pear aroma, juicy and rich, with nice dryness. Delicious pear flavor, sweet and fruity yet finishes nicely dry. Perfectly balanced. Lusciously ripe. It is perfectly sweet, not at all too much, but very satisfying. Good tartness without being acidic. Light, full body, lots of carbonation. Excellent. The best perry I have had, and I still have the Granit to go!
