Although different vintages of this cider may vary slightly we do not list them separately.

Hoganís Vintage Perry (5.4% abv) is a medium, lightly sparkling perry, champagne like in colour, well balanced on the palate with subtle fruit tannin qualities and delicate fruit aromas.
A classic perry in every sense of the word, Hoganís use only 100% English perry pears to produce their Vintage Perry. The perry pears are treated with kid gloves, every one is harvested by hand and gently washed to ensure the best quality. Perry pears are unpalatable to eat due to their high tannin level but create a delicious, delicate drink. The pears contain a natural, unfermentable sugar, sorbitol, which gives the perry some of its residual fruit sweetness. As with our ciders we do not add any sugars prior to fermentation and we do not use any concentrate, we ensure that all our perry contains more than 85% perry pear juice in order to bring you the authentic taste of the English Pear Orchard.

Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head to talk about. Aroma is pears, apples and some ripe fruitiness along with mild vanilla and vinegar to it as well. Flavour is pears, vinegar, some mild applelike notes as well as some resiny notes.

minutemat (1943) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Has a peculiar sour taste, complex sweet flavours but almost off tasting. Not sure I like this at all.

500ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Very pleasant crisp estery aroma, peary and appley. Pleasantly sweet but a little watery perhaps. Clean pears i the taste, with a nice sharp bite too. Very pleasant quaffer, slips down too easily. Overpriced at 11e though.

olliejobbins (1155) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a light gold with no head or lacing at all. Tastes dry and tangy with a lot of pear/apple coming through. After taste is a little sharp but still nice.

Ernest (6484) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of apple/pear skin/seeds/stems, hint of kiwi. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent. Very mild in all ways...light color, light aroma, light body, mild flavor. Pleasant and clean, but yeah...pretty unremarkable.

auerbrau (3180) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 3, 2012
500mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2012. How do so many perries end up tasting like lightly flavored soda pop? Perries must be hard to make, because this one isnít much offensive, but thereís nothing to latch onto. I appreciate some of the dryness, but I want some flavor.

DuffMan (7227) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle, vintage 2009. Medium gold, medium carbonation. Aroma is pressed apple- pear and light spice. Palate is apple-y, leaning toward pear flavors in the finish. Dry and lightly spicy. Quite nice.

A medium bodied Perry. The flavors are semi-sweet pears, some apple flavors as well. Mild carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean, and a touch dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Bottle @ home- not sure where I picked this up (first American rater... where the fuck did I get this???) Iím not going to lie- this is a strange choice on my part to drink at 1am on a work night. Clear golden yellow appearance with a little, off-white head. Slightly spicy, vinous pear, a touch vinegar-like aroma. Tangy, pulpy pear, vinous, acidic flavor. This really isnít that smooth and tastes stronger than it actually is. Iím a little surprised that my cat was going to town drinking this- I guess at least itís not going to waste...
