4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Agreed with below reviewer, the word ’medium’ does not appear here. Pours a vibrant and zesty gold with a temporary burst of champagne-like carbonation which settles to a lasting thin ring of bubbles. Overripe pears dominate the aroma with a hint of Windex and strawberry skin. On the first sip, this stuff fires on all taste cylinders. Dry and sweet flavors flood the palate in a perfumey way. The essence of pear is there along with a beautiful tannic finish that stops short of puckering dryness. There is a slight creaminess but not palate-coating. This is definitely the best perry I’ve had and does not cloy like many locally produced variants. I wish this was cheaper because I could drink this all day long.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I hope I’m entering this rating in the right place, since the word "medium" does not appear anywhere on the bottle. However the abv, description and flavor (sorry, flavour) match quite nicely. I hope I’m right, since I uploaded the photo and added the bar code.
Bottle. Cork tries to fly across the room with just two twists of the cage. Hazy bright golden yellow color, large white coca cola head that settles to champagne bubbles. Aroma is dusty fruit skins. Taste is full bodied, slightly sweet fruit at first with a bit of dryness at the very latest part of the finish. Very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Jimmy’s 43.
Wine glass. Clear, medium gold body. Spritzy.
Smell is very sweet pear perfume, hard water, yeast, & slight barnyard.
Taste is slighty tart & bittersweet pears, champagne grapes, & dusty yeast. Mild, herbal bitterness. Low to medium acid. Just a touch of funk in there.
Beaded, tight carbonation. Manages to finish just dry enough. Very easy.
