From the barrel at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. Not a pear variety I had encountered before but it has produced a very good perry here. Usual silvery perry colour. Good mix of juicy fruit and furry tannin. Fairly dry with a firm, but smooth, mouthfeel.

At GBBF 2009. Good cheesy perry aroma, some pear fruit some reasonable juiciness, not too tannic. Good dryness, some more cheddar on finish

Cask@GBBF2009 (as Gwynt y Ddraig Monmouth Red Single Varietal Perry). Very pale hazy yellow colour, not too much head. Aroma is pear, cheese, spices, mild vinegar, some yeast as well as vanilla. Flavour is sourish sweet pears with some mild spices, vinegar and mildly acidic burning notes along with some vanillaish notes as well.

Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense GBBF 09. Thanks to haddonsman for his tweet prize. A light yellow clear and headless perry with an inviting sweetish pear fruity aroma. As is typical of Gwynt y Ddraig it’s an easy drinking yet tasty drink. Semi-sweet and comforting.

Polycask at GBBF 05-08-09 BTW if anyone knows the abv of this and if it differs from what I put, as I never wrote it down and just assuming that this is what it was, please feel free to inform an admin. Pours looking exactly like Robisons Lemon Barley Juice/Water whatever they call it nowadays. Its a touch soft and sweet, but quite delicious. Big juicy tinned overipe pears come to mind, aroma is suitably peary as well, jolly good stuff. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8
