Pears are pressed at the beginning of the winter and their juice is stored in containers in the orchard that can withstand the winter. After several weeks, the juice that has been naturally concentrated by the cold is collected gradually over the course of the winter.

Melliforous nose with beeswax and floral notes. Subtle mint flavours. The taste is full-bodied and decadent, the balance is perfect, and the sensation is fluid and airy.

Perfect over ice after a meal or as an aperitif.

JulienHuxley (5517) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle shared with Jao. Crystal clear deep golden copper color. Aroma is very rich, jammy, apple butter, pear character is pretty light, could easily be mistaken for an ice cider. Taste is sweet, rich, decadent caramelized sugars, maple butter, very low acidity, perhaps the main difference with an ice cider. Palate is rich and mouthcoating. Delicious, very good value as well.

Corked bottle; vintage 2012, 9.5% ABV
Amber color. This is like drinking a candy, sweet, syrupy, moderately sour, very fruity, not the most complex, but very deep, luscious, lovely.

mcberko (13015) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
200mL bottle, pours a clear bright golden with no head. Aroma brings out baked pears, toffee and caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with toffee, baked pears, brown sugar and caramel. Immensely complex and desert-like, with no acidity whatsoever. An elegant treat.

SlovakSniper (4828) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2015
Vintage 2011. Cuivrée est sa couleur. De courtes jambes sont observées. Au nez, alcool floral et épicé légèrement trop bavard et poires confites, caramélisées, mielleuses avec des pommes vertes concentrées, très odorantes. Tout ça est bien appétissant malgré la sensation «éthylique». Au goût, un boisé imbibé de cannelle ou d’une épice du même acabit avec des poires et des pommes chargées par les sucres, des fleurs caramélisées, de l’alcool et possiblement d’autres fruits du verger en compote. Corps bien collant et liquoreux. Finale assez douce avec une pointe d’acidité qui se réchauffe. Très bon.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle @ 4th of July. Smuggled this back from Montreal, vintage 2012. Rich amber color. Huge maple syrup and apple pie filling on the nose. Some pear tart, a touch of acidity, and a whole lot of brown sugar. There’s a slight spice note on the tongue as well as a very mild almost tannin. Acidity is on the mild side, which makes this come off as very sweet, even for an ice perry. Still, quite enjoyable.

Bottle (200 ml). Harvest 2011. From and shared with my brother. Thanks!

Appearance: Deep amber with little alcohol legs.

Aroma: Honey/floral presence, pears, green apples notes, light spiciness and hints of alcohol.

Taste: Moderately sweet with a nice acidic presence, honey/floral notes, pears, light green apples, lighs spiciness and a touch of alcohol.

Palate: Full bodied. Still. Sirupy and liquorous mouthfeel. Warming alcohol/spices finish.

Overall: One of my first Ice Perry and I liked it a lot. There’s many similarities with Ice Cider, but it’s (at least this one) a lot more floral and the pears aren’t showcased as much as the apples in Ice Cider. Delicious sipper. I will definitely buy some more Ice Perry in a near future.
