3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white head. The aroma definitely has a lot of pear. It seems like very ripe pear with the amount of sweetness to it, but itís not a thick or cloying though. There is also a bit of a candy aspect and some traces of vanilla and milk caramel. Medium crisp body with some sharp fizzy carbonation. The taste is much like the aroma, but it is a bit drier and peppery. The finish is clear, fruity and spicy. Nice pear cider.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured very light straw golden with a ring of white bubbles and nice effervescence.. looked about like what I wanted. The aroma picked up sweet, juicy pears and a touch of oak.. touches of nutmeg and other spices accented.. nice stuff. The flavor found a bunch of pears as well, with some artificial sweetener and vanilla accenting.. even sweeter on the finish. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation that moved it well across the palate.. just a little too sweet, but overall very tasty.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice crisp pear aroma with mild floral notes and just a touch of vinegar. Very pale, clear, gingerale color with a good label in a standard US longneck. Dry, slightly sour, crisp, just a tad of mustiness. Body was light and lost carbonation, mild sour finish. New Leaf Market.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler filled at Joe Canalís. Pours a clear light straw gold with a fizzy white head. Light bodied with a bit of carbonation, but not overly done, making for a crisp mouthfeel. Sweet and overripe green fruits- apples, pears, grapes- but leaning slightly towards a tart pear flavor. Pretty darn good for a perry. Definitely a nice sub for champagne.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a very light golden with a small quickly fadingwhite head. Aroma is very sweet pear, fruity and soft with a touch of sweet bread and bubble gum. Flavor starts with a touch of tartness and a growing sweetness before a sharp and still peary fruit note. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Not a bad perry

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via New Beer from my traditional mix a six crap rate pack.
Ommegang anniversary glass. Sizzling champagne effervescence in place of any noticeable head. High-def clarity & vibrancy. Pale straw color.
Smells a whole lot like banana pudding & bubblegum. Not sure if thatís avoidable. A twinge of pear concentrate & powdered sugar. Bit of agave. Smells less false the more you sit with it.
Juice is much more restrained then the smell thankfully. Honest pear flavor, less banana, & minor amounts of plastic & clove. No crazy perfumes or false tannins. Bit of grape juice & savignon blanc. Citric bite turns softly sweet at the finish, but not before the sulfites become noticeable(decent penalty for that). Alcohol draws continuously & doesnít mass itself for an attack at any point. Enough carbonation here & there to keep it right in between free-flowing & creamy in texture.
For six pack stuff, this is nice.
