too sweet. there’s some appropriate pear flavours hiding there but otherwise hidden behind a massive wall of sugar. too bad. these guys have some good fruit ciders.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the 2012 harvest. Lot 0212. Pretty pricy at $12 for a 500ml. Pours with a crystal clear straw yellow hued body with some bubbles. Aromas are of pear, slightly spicy, rustic and earthy, lightly floral, honey, a touch of rubber/tennis ball on the finish. Flavors are dry, earthy, vegital, bramble like. The tennis ball notes also carry through to the flavor in a slightly distracting manner. Some lime zest character on the finish. Medium-low acidity with mild tannins. Dry with lively carbonation. L

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appears clear and sparkling with a lovely golden-green tinge to its yellow colour. Aromas are subtle and easy on the nose. Very approachable. A little sweet but it dries out and becomes slightly acid upon tasting. There’s tart pears that almost seem a little unripe, not fleshy, juicy and mellow, but nonetheless, an easy approachable perry.
