2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First Perry, not just first rated - always avoided because I supposed they would have to be very dull. Bought as a sighter. Bottle, a cold. 6C. Clear gold. First sniff is encouraging: apples as well as pears, some flowers, wood, some peel. Medium bodied, very nicely judged lowish carbonation. Has a hint of that blousiness slightly over-ripe pears can have (possibly held in check by the coldness). Sweet with some astringency and a bit of wood at the end. The pears are not intensely flavoured but are not without character. Not bad at all.

500ml bottle in the Leaping Salmon, berwick-upon-tweed, whilst waiting for the pubs with a decent ale range to open! Pours clear pale yellow with no head. Aromas of sweet pears, pear drops almost. Taste is light sweet, becoming cloying down the glass. Both thin and sticky, strangely. Leaves a chalky aftertaste, but not entirely unpleasant.

Pours a clear light gold with a minimal head. The smell is tart fruit, very mild nose. The taste is floral, only a hint of pear, fairly sweet yet ending dry. Light in body with nice fine carbonation The mouthfeel was the best aspect of this perry.

Many thanks to Rian for sharing! Smooth neutral nose. The Perry starts sweetish with tart tannin pears. Not too much depth, fresh sourish. The pears are there a bit aromatic in the background. Smooth fruity sourish, but I miss the intense pears. Rich but not deep, tannins, winey fruit, but not too much pears. Hints of alcohol, round. Interesting!
