3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL bottle: Nearly colorless liquid splashed with yellow. Noisy, dying head. Waxy, perfumey aromas on elegant display, with hints of mushroom, lime zest, fresh cut pineapple, artichoke and uncured hay. Pleasingly musty but not overly wild or rustic. Hugely effervescent and gassy mouthfeel. Prickly lime zest and pineapple acids very gently buckle the cheeks before converging with a pronounced vitaminlike dullness. Pear skin offers a snappiness which coincides nicely with the bracing dryness. Adequate level of residuals keep things from becoming stark, though the absence of phenols causes things to be two-dimensional. Pear character is not particularly ripe or explosive either, which reinforces the yearning for greater depth and vibrancy. Closes with a peppery, zesty dryness laced with succulent pear juice remnants and a healthy dose of musty minerals. The framework is definitely here, but ultimately it comes across as a bit too "simple". And there is also an unpleasant moldy/uncured hay character that is somewhat off-putting. Those folks looking for something bretty and barnyardy, might want to look elsewhere. Just okay.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a blush golden straw with a finger of quickly fizzled gaseous bubbles. Lots of sweet pear juice on the nose with a hint of basement musk and dust. The palate follows with a high spritz level on the mouthfeel and focused pear notes that lean from musky to floral when dissected. Crisp clean beverage with some roasted chicken and veggies.

Shared with Travlr and my wife; courtesy of Travlr. Aroma of dried apricot, white raisin and slightly sweet pear. Appearance is clear gold with no head. Flavor matched the nose; spritzy and refreshing, maybe a bit sweet. Palate is light, bubbly and lively. An elegant drink.

Pale golden with a small white head, and lively carbonation. Aroma dominated by pear, with a funky note of leather. Sweetish, but tart flavour with some funky notes and a hint of cellar.

Bottle. Yeasty, slightly over ripe pear aroma. Cloudy yellow with a fizzy, quickly dissipating white head, suspended yeast sediment. Sweet tart ripe pear, pear skin flavor with a dry finish. Light spritzy body, champagne-like. Overall, I found it quite enjoyable, and not too sweet.
