Bomber. Clear light gold pour with lots of effervescence. The wet stone aroma description from a previous rater is right on. Very lively on the tongue. Slightly sweet. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle that has spent 2 years... If not longer in my fridge.
Pours pretty much like champagne, but with a little bit of head retention.
Aroma is wet rocks, some sweet pear & a little earthy woodiness. Some bright berry like character is mild but adds a lot to the nose.
The flavor is mildly sweet with a dry finish. Its got a nice pear flavor and some great minerallity. Light Apple rind bitterness lingers in the finish.
Really very good

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle corked and capped poured into a white wine glass. Almost clear with a pale straw with small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is dry pears, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is semi-sweet pear with some alcohol in the finish. Best perry I have had.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a bubbly pale champagne like color with some visible carbonation. Aroma is very dry with pears with a hint of a chemical note. Flavor comes through with sweet pear up front that mellows to a bit of a dry but mealy finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2012. Wicked complex spice and earth fruit aroma. I would never say pears, but I would say wonderful. Really bready and rich. Fluffy with an explosive Champagne-level carbonation. Nice bubbles. Beautifully complex and flavorful. My pick of the evening.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GTMW 2010 - Pours a real faint yellow, with next to no head. Smells of muted pear, with some green apple. Sparkling, refreshing green apple and pear taste, woven together nicely. Carbonated and effervescent. This was terribly refreshing and very light. If I see this in stores, it will be hard to pass up despite the high price tag Ive seen from this winery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a pewter yellow with short lived fizzy head and no lace. The aroma is quite pear like, grapes, and somewhat wild. The flavor is nice, with pears being the obvious focus, balanced by some wildness, perhaps yeast. The palate is quite lively, cleansing, and refreshing. This would be a good summer drink. Overall, impressed.
