4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a straw yellow with plentiful champagne-like carbonation. a hint of sulfur in the aroma gives way to pear juice, acid, vanilla, and baby powder. to say this is crisp and refreshing is an understatement. the juice itself is juicy, there are true notes of pear here and the finish is long and creamy for something so light in ABV. the acidity balances the sweetness perfectly, which is something you don’t often find in perry. this was described to me as the best fermented fruit product in the world, and while i don’t agree, it’s tough to find a flaw in this beverage. i guess my only ’complaint’ is that i wish the famed granite-laced soil expressed itself in a way that offered a unique, new flavor. regardless, this is a great glass of perry.
Sample. White wine golden, sparkles. Rich pear aroma, light almond, grape. Apple/pear, a hint kiwi and ginger. Sparkly yet chewy body. Nice broad orchard finish, very fresh and pleasant. SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017

Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is pear, sweet, autumn fruit, caramel, rather subtle. Taste is overripe fermenting pears, dessert, caramel, some wood, medium sweet although it feels sweet. Fizzy carbonation that is not overdone. The perfect Perry indeed.
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Pours clear palest yellow with a decent head. Aroma is pear, pear zest, chalk, caramel. Body is pure sweetest possible pear, very sweet and super fruity, strong carbonation. Caramel. Palate is fruity and sweet, but not too long. Unbelievably strong aroma, amazing! olsvammel (7292) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016

Clear yellow colored with a small white head.
Fruity aroma of pears and dried pears.
Fruity flavor of pears, dried pears and barnyard.
One of the best ciders/perries I’ve ever tried with a lot of complexity and high drinkability to boot. I’d happily pay the price again. hackobock (4095) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2016
October 2, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2013. OminouSC2 (921) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2016
Clear pale golden with a small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is fresh sweet mashed pears, a touch of fruit skin notes, hints of vanilla and a touch of herbs. Taste is light tart and medium sweet. Finish is sweet and fruity with lots of pears, some citrusy and apple skin tartness, slight minerals and oak. Light bodied, slight creamy, a bit fizzy carbonation.
Very nice, distinct pear notes with some refreshing tart notes in the finish.
Tasted as 3,5% ABV. Light green color. Sweet aromas of apple sauce, pears and vanilla. Sweet taste of apple sauce, with a tart pear and elder berry finish. Dry and lovely. hopscotch (11305) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle... Crystal clear straw-colored pour with sparse, weak legs. The aroma features fresh applesauce, pear puree and hint of caramel. Very fruity. Light-bodied with champagne-like carbonation. The flavor is sour and dry - loads of pear and applesauce here. Plenty of fruitiness and tartness in the lingering finish to satisfy any cider, perry or lambic-head. Top notch perry, this is! Big THANKS to HonusWagner for sharing this gem with the south Florida crew! Nisse666 (8100) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2016
