3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. A pale straw colour, no carbonation. A light pear aroma. Plenty of pear in the flavour with some hints of spice, I’d say medium-sweet. Very refreshing and drinkable, with a slight warming quality to it. Personally I like my perry offensively strong, both in flavour and alcohol content, with a good kick of sourness, which this doesn’t deliver. But this is an easy-drinking perry intended to appeal to the mass market, which it does well and I’d certainly buy it again. Was surprised to see that it was 8% actually, as it doesn’t strike me as being that strong.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Waitrose shared with McTapps. A nice cider with a sweet taste and only a touch of perry in the aroma. Easily drinkable with some apples and lemons in the background. Nothing special but balanced carbo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Appearance: Clear golden/straw/green with bubbly white head on the pour.
Aroma: Pear, musty, earthy, floral, note of barnyard, vanilla, woody, buttery and spicy.
Taste: Medium acidity and tannin, low/medium sweetness.
Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, average carbonation, lingering pear, vanilla, caramel/toffee finish.
Comments: Delicious. The most assertive Perry I have had to date. 2011 Vintage.
2013 Vintage: Same as above but prickly carbonation, no vanilla, no barnyard in the aroma or finish. More of a pear, buttery caramel aroma and palate with a dry, lingering pear, white wine and caramel like finish.
Again a very good Perry.
