Pear is a fruit of patience! A pear tree needs 50 years to reach its maturity but will live for more than 200 years. This unique blend of Plant de Blanc, Muscadet, Tricotin, Avenelle and Poire de Grise varieties gives our Poire its typical balance. A delicate marriage between crisp acidity and discreet sweetness.
Its typical lightness and elegance make Poire a traditional drink in Normandy. Its fine bubbles are naturally produced in the bottle. Poire is both refreshing and festive. You will enjoy Poire served chilled in a champagne flute, as an aperitif. It also goes beautifully with shellfish, salads, steamed fish, goat cheese or fruits sorbet.

Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle poured into s glass. The cork hit the ceiling and perry gushed out onto the counter with my glass right beside the bottle and ready. Aroma is dry pear, medium soft body, extreme carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is pear and mineral water. This is one of the best Perrys I have had. I bet this would make a great mimosa.

Pour on tap at Town Hall, slightly hazy whitish yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pear, peach, apricot, some sweet vanilla, touch of spice as well. Taste was mainly pear, more vanilla, sweet fruity notes with a hint of spicy earth, finishing sweet.

Kinda sour, not much in the way of sweetness. In fact, except for the sour, I’m not getting really any taste at all.

750ml bottle. Pale yellow golden colour, short-lived bubbly white foam head and aroma of pear, fruity, sourish with funk & vinegar notes. Taste is sweet pear, syrupy & fruity, with some hay, apple, wood, barnyard and dry slightly tannic notes. Spritzy mouthfeel, light bodied, high carbonation, drying tart finish. Refreshing, nicely drinkable.

Crystal clear very light golden--nearly hueless. Nice aroma of fresh green pear and a little green apple tones on the nose. Slightly sour green pear and green apple flavor with a touch of green fruit pucker and some fresh pear flesh tones. Pretty sour pear-y.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear light pale color with a sparkling white head that mostly lasted with soft lacing. Medium green pear aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet pear flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Worth having more than once.

DrSilverworm (9099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear yellow color. Pours with a bigger white head initially, but that quickly fades to minimal. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft, light slick. Wonderful aroma. Pear, vanilla, and some burnt caramel. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Very interesting perry, love the unique aroma on these pear varietals.

Draft to snifter at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent light gold with white head that quickly dissipates entirely. Smells of pear, but on the dryer side. Tastes like it smells with a bit of sweetness and an average mouthfeel. A solid Perry.
