harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury and drunk on the train from Deal to Ashford. Vague pear aroma. Basically it’s sugary fruity alcoholic water. I mean it’s pure rubbish. It’s the worst thing I’ve drunk in a long time.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle. Very pale gold with steady carbonation. Aromas are earthy apple and tinned pear with some low citrus acidity. Icing sugar with some green apple. Flavours are sweet timned pear juice with sugar. Dry with green apple tartness alongside sweet jammy notes. OK.

downender (6238) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. This tasted like a medium cider sweetened with dessert pears. The cider on its own would probably have tasted better. Certainly not much of a perry. Is this the same drink as the Thatchers 4.5% perry?
