COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr/Ungstrup. Clear golden with a vague tint of green. Subdued aroma, a whiff of green apples perhaos. Light body with an extreme carbonation and vague, tart pear accents. Finishes dry with a subdued tartness. Surprisingly poor. 190209

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2009
Bottled. A light yellow perry with slight chunks of sediment floating around. The aroma is sweet and dominated by pears. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of pears, leading to a nicely tart finish.

yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2009
75 cL bottle. Pours pale light greenish with a fully gone and initially fizzy head. Dry and herbal pear aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel. Phenolic and slight mouldy. Dry and citric finish. Strange and interesting.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Slight green tint on the pear juice-colored body, looking very much like nectar, sparkling with fizzy champagne-like appearance. Nice, clean, wine-like dryness but with intense Bartlett pear qualities that persist. You can practically smell the texture. High carbonation but not prickly. Yeasty, unique finish. Lots of juicy pear qualities and genuine fruit goodness. A solid, well-done and pleasant example.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Cloudy pale yellow et tres mousseaux. Fresh pear and light sulphur on this one. Highly carbonated, carrying a firm minerally liquid across the palate. Spicy, with fresh pear and fairly good rustic yeast character. Quality stuff.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Pours a clear pale yellow, with little tiny bubbles. Smells of apples and pears mostly, very fruity, with traces of acidity and tannins. The flavor had pretty big apple and pear flavors as well. Nice little zesty carbonation to go along with it. Very refreshing and flavorful perry. Nice little treat to drink, had some champagne qualities to it, but much more enjoyable flavor. Fun to drink. Underrated in my opinion.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Pale yellow body with only a few visible bubbles. The aroma is light with pears and some woody goodness. It reminds me of spring air with after a brief rain. The taste has some rich pear cores along with some wood. A nice sugary sweet finish. Good.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Light yellowish color with a huge head (and a cork that could kill someone on its way out!). Aroma of pears, wild yeast, and a bit of apple. Flavor of mild pear, apple, and a nice yeastiness with some oak barrel. Good, but any perry has a tough time matching a good cider due to the Pear’s "simplicity" of flavor.
