UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 [16/4/2012, cask at the William Robert Loosley (JDW), High Wycombe] Cloudy pale gold. Creamy, dry, light pear flavour. In fact, like a dry pear milkshake. There?s a spicy kick at the back of the throat. It?s a strange perry, but I rather liked it by the end. 5/3/7/4/13. Re-rate, 22/6/2014, on tap at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Clear gold. Flat, smooth, creamy, almost cloying mouthfeel- felt it needed a bit more life to it. Flavour is more apples than pears, with some vanilla- if I hadnít have known it was a perry I might have thought it was a sweet cider. The sweetness is eased by the light body. Definitely one for the mass-market, itís easy-drinking and inoffensive. 5/3/5/3/11. Score is the average of both ratings.

Subtle aroma of pear (very slight indeed) Slight carbonation with very light straw colour. Hint of pear otherwise very little else to tase. Very drinkable with a wide range of foods as it is not overbearing in itís nature.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2011
On draught at The Standing Order. Pours a straw colour with an aroma of pear drops, alcohol and caramel. A quite prominent fresh pear flavour and a little honey also. Quite a dry finish with mild carbonation. Not bad although a little sweet for me.

Barrel, William Wygston, Wigston. Pale straw with no carbonation. Aromas are tinned pear juice with icing sugar and lemon. Some surprising pineapple with light woody notes. Flavours are sweet pear and pineapple juice with some green apple and vinegar tartness. Fairly dry on the finish with sugar. Light bodied. Quite a strange perry.
