michaelak (2) - Alaska, USA - JUL 22, 2013 does not count
Amazing...the cider base shines through, but you are left with a head FULL of pears...dizzy with pears, and on your ass if not careful.... Lovely colour and a bit of dryness behind the sweet presentation. wow.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
355ml can. 5% abv as per can. Pours almost clear, just a light greenish tinge to it, no head to speak of but lots of carbonation fizz. Sweet nose of pear and pear skins. Fruity pear taste that sweet up front but dries out at the end with some pear skin notes and some slight tanginess. Light body, carbonation is high. Has some refreshing qualities and doesnít taste overly fake.

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2009
2009-06-26. Practically clear with light bubbles. Mild sweet aroma of pears, simple. Flavour is similar, simple sugary sweet touches of pears, kiss of alcohol in the finish. Average palate. Okay but simplistic. Bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits, Halifax

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2007
Clearish yellow appearance - kind of dull. Aroma is peary, with hints of brown sugar and wood. Crisp, earthy and natural-tasting pear character again with a hint of brown sugar. I didnít hate this. The winner among macros at this tasting.

garthicus (2661) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 1, 2009
Shared by Jerc and Mabel. Appearance: Like a glass of soda water with extra carbonation. Aroma: Sweet with an artificial boiled sweet pear aroma. Flavour: Again like a pear flavoured boiled sweet, tangy with lots of carbonation.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Can: Poured a dark golden color perry with medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet pears is quite strong with some use of enhancer or non-natural flavors. Taste is overly sweet with some pears notes. This is not a perry I would seek again. It is a bit disappointing tasting all the fake flavors knowing that producing perry is not necessarily the most difficult thing in the world. Still, I would say that this was a notch better then their cider.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Rating #874- December 29, 2013 - 355ml bottle from Coop, 7%. Clear, very pale yellow colour, weakly carbonated. Aroma is sweet pears. Taste is bubbly sweet, alcohol very well disguised, this could pass for juice. Not much to distinguish from other ciders or pear ciders.

herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2003
This is tasty but not what I was looking for exactly. Fruity tasting water, no color. Drank this in Tofino, British Columbia. Choices are a few here.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
My homemade pear cider isnít great but at least it has more pear flavour than sugar. This stuff needs to be a lot drier, in my opinion. Poured an almost-clear sparkle with a noticeable pear aroma. Alcohol wasnít too bad but after a couple of glasses the cloying attributes begin to get tiresome. And yet...I do enjoy pears so its not so bad.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
[2290-20090626] 341mL bottle. Fruity melon pear passion fruit aroma. Clear, colourless light green body with no head. More fruity pear and passion fruit in the flavour. Light body is fizzy. Fair, nice enough for a fruit drink.
(From Premier Wine & Spirits, Halifax, NS; w/ garthicus, jerc)
