1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with all the fury of a French champagne to settle a medium gold, translucent liquid of soda-pop consistency. Woody, mineral-like, salted cracker nose with hints of rhubarb, plum and rotting green vegetables, ugh! Thin, watery and very tangy, tannic and astringent. Really tart in an oddly sweet way. Makes my mouth pucker. Tastes of watered down apple juice with sweaty sock sulphury notes lingering. Pear? Hard to tell in between the collapse of my cheek muscles that is each sip. Not my thing and definitely not the better of Westonís range! (50cL, BBE 05/13, Dan Murphyís Currambine)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale limpid pour with a bit of light carbonation. The aroma is softly sweet with a very light bit of pear aroma. A touch of soft spice and some light pear sweetness. Not terribly distinctive or otherwise memorable. Moderate tartness as well.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. My first foray into perry! Iíve become a fan of quality cider, so I reckon its time to expand my horizons even further. Pours a crystal clear medium gold, moderate carbonation. Aroma is medicinal musty apples, not any indication of pears in the nose. Palate delivers flavours much the same, apple must, slightly medicinal, medium sweetness, very dry finish. Not very complex, and not very "pear-ish". Hopefully future perrys deliver a little something more!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, yellow body without any head, and the first whiff of aroma made me disappointed, sulphur is far too evident. Would have known if I read the label, but I didnít. Luckily it soon diminishes a lot, leaving just a faint note of sulphur. Thereís pears and some earth and cold autumn nighttime grass as well, but I would like it all much more pronounced. Especially the pears. In the mouth itís quite dry, pleasantly carbonated, obviously force carbonated, and lightly sparkling. As for the aroma, the flavor should be more pronounced. Thereís a light pear taste, a faint note of sulphur and grass, and some sugary hints. It hasnít got the palate cleansing effect I would like it to have. Anyway, itís a product several leagues above the regular industrial "pear cider", but it didnít ring any bells for me. Wonít shy away if Iím served it, but wonít buy more of it either. 101027
