Hazy off-white color with a towering white head that collapses in seconds. Tart pear and pear skins aroma. Grassy beginning to the taste. As it settles, a dry pear seeps out. Definitely a crisp, slightly tart pear flavor. Very little sweetness, mostly in the form of table sugar. Much better than the overall score indicates. docswife (27) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Poured like champagne, very fizzy. Clear golden bubbly color with lots of white head. Aroma of pears and apples. Very nice drink. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Pours like a good sparkling wine. Light golden color with a very foaming head. Aroma is of pears (I guess). My pear nose is not that sophisticated. Taste is refreshing. Taste of pears. Acid in nature. Served in a Champagne flute. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2008
I found this to be quite refreshign and enjoyable. Has the effervescence of a spakrling wine, with a ripe white peaches and pears in the nose. Has a bit too much acid, but very refreshing and clean in the finish. A great food pairing accompaniment. Enniskillen (2053) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Very pale with a thin white head. Aroma is pear skin, pear juice, very florl and plesant. Taste is floral with pears. Body is too fizzy.

750 ml 2005 bottle from tytoanderso; very carbonated pale gold; nose of slightly musty pears; flavor is tart pears with some really musty notes. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2008
2005: Exploding cork pours super carbonated clear light yellow...smell is lightly sweet with pear, with a lot of funky cheese rind...very nice...taste is lightly sweet with a very lively champagne-ish mouthfeel...some faint barnyard cheese flavors too...sticky overly sweet finish...almost artificial seeming...

Corked 750ml bottle from 2006 and served in Flute glasses. Pours straw hued with a very fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of sweet and tart pear, a bit of husky and musty vapours, and just a quick dash of some sea salt. The taste follows suit with acidic pear twangy and a musty earthy quality in support. A nice dry almost woody like finish. The mouth feel very effervescent, much like a quality champagne which makes this a very refreshing beverage. I had a bit of mild English cheddar with the second glass and it worked well together. I say that it is easy for someone to dismiss this but I found it quite enjoyable and something I would buy again without reservation. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2008
2005. The most pale tint of yellow pour, similar in color to sake. Pours with a soda-like head- small, dense, and fast- including the light spray from carbonation bubbles popping. The bubbles are like a reverse rain storm, flooding towards the top of the glass, slowing only after a number of minutes. Aroma is juicy, sweet, acidic, tart, musty, and lightly bitter. Flavor is a lot softer than the aroma suggested- juicy pears, lightly bitter skins, mild musty earth (or bark), and finishing very dry with some acidic, lightly tart pear candy. Highly carbonated body accentuates musty, bitter, and acidic flavors and downplays the sweetness. Weight is medium to medium/light. Excellent aperitif or refreshing warm weather beverage. krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2007
