3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at PBF. Bright pale yellow, sparkling. Rich aroma of pear jam. Sweetish with light body and clean, sprittzy mouthfeel. Elegant and spritzy, but pear syrup creeps on, and the finish has a slight metallic lining.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked, baled, and foiled. Pours a hazy, slightly burnished medium gold with a surging, fizzy white head that falls quickly back to nothing. Huge explosive crisp white pear nose, very sweet and fresh and fruity. It really pops, especially for a bottle. Creamy medium body with effervescent carb. Intense fresh fruit flavor dominates the mid-palate, very little yeast character other than a hint of mineral dryness at the far edges of the flavor profile. Mild finish. Very pleasant and appealing, very easy to drink.
