2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not as wretched as it could be, William’s Sir Perry suggests at least a hint of what a decent perry might be. There’s not a lot of pear flavour and you sense it’s been cheapened a good bit to keep the price down for mass consumption. Nonetheless, the finish is rather tart and dry and it doesn’t leave a bad taste in the mouth. Compared to what others have reported, the can I sampled (purchased from the LCBO in Burlington, Ontario) was moderately (not highly) carbonated. I wouldn’t exactly give this a wholehearted recommendation, but neither can I bring myself to despise it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(500ml can) Purchased at Harris Green in Victoria for $3.60. Wow. This really is a cheap perry. Pours a large white, quick dissipating head atop a golden body. Due to outrage British purists, this stuff is overly fizzy and somewhat tart. Not terribly impressed.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can from LCBO. Yeasty, cheap-cidery, poor overall in taste and body. Pale yellow with fizzy head and carbonation. I’m indifferent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I tried this cider on July 4, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlet. The cider poured a very pale yellow with a loose bubbly head that disappeared quickly. The aroma is mild pear. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated, light, and almost champagne like. The taste is sour pears, and almost has a white wine feel/taste to it. Very dry.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light golden in colour, no head, no lacing. The aroma was lightly acidic, some white grapes, apples and very light alcohol. The flavour is quite sweet, some grapes and some white wine. Sugary mouthfeel, light body, high carbonation. Finishes long and sweet, dry.
This was out of date what I purchased this but Iíd still like to try more perries.
500ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Opened on December 27, 2007.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A thin yellowish perry with a thin big bubbled white head. Aroma is lightly sulfurous, rotten fruits, spoiled. In mouth, a sweet refreshing carbonated pear juice, light acidic points, does the trick on this humid plus 30C day. Can from LCBO, bougt a year ago. So it keeps well (Iím very positive about canning).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Dark straw. Light carbonation. Not sure if I have had a Perry before, I will have to check. Kind of a creamy light pear scent. Not very sweet, kind of tart which is good. Kind of dry pear flavour. OK. Although judging from the other scores I may have to search out other examples to develop a frame of reference.

The first Perry I ever tasted - and you really can taste the pears in it. Makes you feel kinda healthy when swigging it down.
Fizzy and very refreshing. Decent choice when you feel like something new.
