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.

Corked 750ml bottle from 2006 and served in Flute glasses. Pours straw hued with a very fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of sweet and tart pear, a bit of husky and musty vapours, and just a quick dash of some sea salt. The taste follows suit with acidic pear twangy and a musty earthy quality in support. A nice dry almost woody like finish. The mouth feel very effervescent, much like a quality champagne which makes this a very refreshing beverage. I had a bit of mild English cheddar with the second glass and it worked well together. I say that it is easy for someone to dismiss this but I found it quite enjoyable and something I would buy again without reservation.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2008
2005. The most pale tint of yellow pour, similar in color to sake. Pours with a soda-like head- small, dense, and fast- including the light spray from carbonation bubbles popping. The bubbles are like a reverse rain storm, flooding towards the top of the glass, slowing only after a number of minutes. Aroma is juicy, sweet, acidic, tart, musty, and lightly bitter. Flavor is a lot softer than the aroma suggested- juicy pears, lightly bitter skins, mild musty earth (or bark), and finishing very dry with some acidic, lightly tart pear candy. Highly carbonated body accentuates musty, bitter, and acidic flavors and downplays the sweetness. Weight is medium to medium/light. Excellent aperitif or refreshing warm weather beverage.

Indra (2672) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
750ml bottle. Smells like a fresh pear, lightly tart with some funkiness. Hazy silver-yellow color, lots of bubbles and fruity sediment. Tart, dry, acidic flavor, not strongly fruity, almost lightly abrasive in feel, some lemon and grapefruit notes amidst the pear. Ultra-light body, highly effervescent on the palate. Interesting and odd stuff for sure.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Corked and caged bottle and bottle conditioned. Very, very small white head that was extremely fizzy and quickly dissipated, no lacing, transparent, and lively, fast-rising carbonation. Nose was pears, sweet and tart. The flavor was sweet, acidic, sour, tart, pears and a dry finish. Mouthfeel was tingly and somewhat dry. Light body. This was just too tart and sour for my tastebuds and not one that I want to indulge in again. If one enjoys a lot of sourness and tartness, then go for it.

The cork blew off this beer and showered everyone in the vicinity! You have been warned! It had the appearance of cloudy water with some effervesce. There was pear with a hint of barnyard on the aroma. A very nice sweet pear flavor with some sourness as well. It had a salty/seltzery feeling on the tongue. Very refreshing!

Bottle. Aroma of musty pears with some funky sourness. Pours a pale yellow with lively carbonation. Flavor of dry and musty pears with a hint of creamy lacto sourness. Creamy on the palate with excellent carbonation.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 4, 2007
The 4th cider (and only Perry) in our flight at Indra’s Mead, Cider and Sake Tasting 8/31/07. Pours a hazy Fresca color with tons of rising bubbles. The aroma is quite funky. It smells like a sweaty French cabbie smoking a joint while eating a pear. Medium-bodied and effervescent, like most ciders it finishes dry and tart. The flavor is effervescent pear with a distinctly dry finish. It isn’t as bad as the aroma projected that it might be, but it’s definitely not my bag. Frankly, I’d rather drink the syrup from the bottom of a can of pears. Mmm. Syrup...

Guerde (1192) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
(bottle, thanks akevitt) Pours a cloudy pale with a large white head that extinguishes quickly. Aroma is tart and sour with some funk. Taste is initially tart at first but rounds out to a nice mellow pear sweetness. {Use caution upon opening}

thanks to akevitt for sharing. Faint pear and an almost lambic like barnyard funk to to the aroma. Lemonade like color. Champagne like mouthfeel with an expetionally earthy flavor with some of the best pear flavor I’ve had in a beverage.
