500 ml can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a thin, fizzy, white head. Aroma of tart pears and sugar. Sweet and tart flavour of pears with a dry finish. Light body with a sticky texture and fizzy carbonation. Tastes like a soda.

bunget (768) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
500ml can. A very pale yellow clear body, small white head with residual foam. Aroma of fermented pears and apples, white wine, candies. Refreshing taste of green grapes and pears, hints of apples and caramel. Much more sour than I expected.

I like this for an occasional change of pace. Not too sweet. Very light body.

"This cider has lively carbonation, and finished dry after a slightly sweeter than Iím used to in English ciders flavor. Refreshing, but doesnít do anything to stand out much..."

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2014
500 ml can from Cactus Jacks into a pint glass. Gold and clear appearance with minimal head, quickly dissipating to nothing. Aroma of pears, apple juice and sweet candy. Similar flavor, sweet, fruity and juicy. Light to medium body, carbonated and pretty crisp with a sweet finish. Somewhat refreshing, just too sweet for me.

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipates immediately and completely. Aroma has earthy pear with a bit of sugary sweetness. Flavor has earthy pear with a syrupy sweetness the grows.

Yeah, dude...sir perry awaits. Maybe this rating will benefit from the 17% port barrel infused stout Iím still buzzing from...maybe, but I doubt it. The rating wonít be better, but my review will at least be more interesting. Aroma...pears! Bartlett, bosc, or maybe because itís from England, Vicar of Winkfield? Pliny suggested Falernian pears, but I doubt that. Who the hell cares...it smells like pears, or more aptly, pear syrup and maybe a little lemon. By appearance, itís a clear yellow with a thing ringed white head and moderate carbonation. Tastewise...pears, I guess, other acidic sweet fruit like apple and grape are there too. I dontí know...itís not my thing; I buy these to reduce and simmer some fresh pears in for a kick ass dessert, and not to drink. Trust me, Sir Perry, I wonít destroy you, youíre actually quite refreshing, and miles ahead of a macro lager any day.

Big fucken can @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours a clear golden appearance with a fizzy white head that quickly disappears. Buttery, slightly burnt/caramelized, apple/pear, white wine, nasty aroma. Spritzy, apple juice, white grape, candy, pear, lightly tart, soda flavor. Worst perry Iíve ever had. Hard to drink.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Appearance: A crystal clear blend of peach and berry juice with rose water Ė intriguing to say the least. A steady stream of bubbles help support a bubbly collar. No head.
Nose: Dried strawberries and dried apples. Strawberry and apple angel food cake. A little too sweet in the back Ė hints of artificial sweeteners. Astronaut ice-cream?
Palate: Thin with the flavor concentrated in the middle of each quaff. Watered down astronaut strawberry and apple ice-cream. There is a harsh acidic bite in the back of each swallow which is rather off-putting. Roseís lime juice along the sides.
Final Thoughts: Overall a rather bland and artificial tasting cider with berries added to it. How much real fruit was used versus fruit flavored extracts is left to oneís best guess. There are far better ciders out there, with or without additional fruit.
