COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available on draught and in 500ml bottles.
In the UK may be labelled in bottles simply as "Oliver’s Perry".
ABV varies. Has been seen at 5.4% & 6.4%.
Medium Perry. Sparkling.

A youthful blend of early season perry pears. This is best served chilled. Straw bright perry with spicy, rhubarb nose that leads to a gloriously balanced rich pear tasting perry.
Perry pears from the orchards of Herefordshire, cold fermented by wild yeasts, matured and blended. Hints of hedgerow fruit and suave citrus flavors mix with pear acids and tannins to give a slightly sweetened classic sparkling perry.

Strykzone (6034) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Pint bottle from Friar Tucks in Glen Carbon. Very clear and light golden. A little swirling carbonation. No foam. It smells like apples and pears. Not bad, actually. Mostly I picked this up because I have only had one other Perry style. But this is pleasant and a little more complex than a typical cider. The pear has more going on than is typical including leather.

danlo (2016) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
330ml bottle. Pale watery yellow gold colour, short-lived white foam head and aroma of mellow pear, woody & mild funk. Taste is sweetish, syrupy, pear, melon, fruity , tangy, with light wood, solvent and tannin, plus a buttery note. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, fairly clean finish with light hints of hay and minerals. Nicely drinkable perry.
