This is nice better than fake pear ciders and I like them ha. But I feel special drinking this bit weird but pears are. Much sweeter than cider. But not to bad, too thin and refreshing to be called medicinal, heady buzz nice not mind blowing but special enough

minutemat (1816) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
500ml bottle from Dunkertons Cider Farm, Herefordshire. Pours clear gold, with a sweet fruity perry aroma. Taste is distinctive Dunkertons; fruity, exceedingly well blended and underpinned by just the right amount of tannins.. I could drink this all day long.

AshtonMcCobb (2799) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2013
50cl bottle. Pours golden and slightly hazy with very gentle bubbles. The nose has over-ripe pear. The taste confirms the over-ripeness but finishes with a dry tangy finish. I’m not sure why the scores for this are so low - there’s obviously depth of flavour and a good balance between initial sweetness and the dryness of the finish. I like this.

Rasmus40 (11682) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle @ In De Wildeman. Clear champagne colour without head. Aroma is sweet, pear and a little tart. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish. Very refreshing and no sign of the relatively high ABV. 260712

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2009
Golden with moderate fizz. Pear juice, oak and some medium dryness. Easy to drink but with not much character. Oh, for a drop of Gwatkins on draught.........

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Smells boozy and sweet. Tastes like a dog/cat that was shampooed about a week before. Really not into the flavour but the, I’m really not into Perry.

harrisoni (14016) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2006
Bottle from Waitrose. Hey a bottled Perry. I was surprised. I admit that I am somewhat of a fan of this style of alcoholic refreshment. Greeny gold colour with disappearing white head. Not intense pear aroma. Bit of rubber in mouth with nice solid pear flesh. Finish has some dryness, but mostly fruit. Very clean. Fruit gets better as it goes on. No real complexity, but nicely subtle.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2005
Pale yellow & gold. Aromas are sweet pear with some wood, has something of the farmyard about it. Flavours are sweet and peary (is that an adjective?) with more of the Dunkertons "wood and the trees" oakiness at the finish. I think this is the only perry I have seen bottled. Pretty good. My fondest memory of Perries is my fest-newby friend puking it up at Peterborough beer fest a few years back - after just a pint of the stuff. Ah, perries.

Bottle (Waitrose). Cloudy lemon with no head yet gentle carbonation. Oaky pear aroma, slightly funky. Sweet pear taste with a funky medicinal finish. Ok.
