Bottled at Ottawa gathering. Clear pale golden. Buttery pear jam aroma. Sweet with full body and rounded gentle mouthfeel. Pear jam, honey and candy. Mildly warming. AlainG (2233) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2017
C’est d’un beau doré lumineux où de fines bulles semblent figées sur place. Un nez de fond de compote et de confiture maison. Des saveurs âcres et de fruits trop mûrs. C’est minéral et ferreux. C’est mince, alors que l’alcool fait rapidement sentir sa présence, pas tant au goût qu’à la sensation, l’effet. C’est plutôt décevant. 2014.

How: Generous sample (nearly 2 oz) from bottle on premise.

>>> A boozy, simple and not so flavorful ice perry. On the lower spectrum of quality for the style.
- Clear dark golden, leaving some legs on the glass.
- There’s certainly some pears, but not nearly as much as expected from a cryocontrated product.
- Definitely one of the less complex and less flavorful ice cider / ice perry I have tried so far.
- It’s rather boozy and there’s mild but annoying solvent notes.
- Both sweetness and acidity levels are low, so combined with the not so strong pear flavor, it leaves all the place for alcohol.
Flavors: Pear juice, alcohol, mild solvent notes, mild brown sugar.
Bottle: Poured a dark golden color ice perry. Notes of sweet pears are not as intense as I would have expected. Residual sugar level is also not as dominant as I would have expected. Not bad overall but not as tasty as I would think concentrated pear juice would taste like. j12601 (11175) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle split with my wife. Pours a clear straw gold. Slightly harsh on the nose, pungent earthy wood tones and old pear flesh. Medium-bodied, not very much sweetness going on here, a bit warm and boozy. Picks up an unpleasant isopropyl note into the finish. Not all that impressive. Probably the reason this is significantly less expensive ($13/375ml) than most of the better ice ciders and perries.

clear golden pour with some nice legs when swirling. more apples than pear upfront, fresh ones though, touch of caramel, spices and acidity. flat carbonation as expected, medium body - oily and sticky with a cloying finish. thankfully not perfumey. a cloying sipper.

A golden Perry with light pear pulp aroma, light acidity, nice. In mouth, a sweet pear pulp, light astringency, cork, OK. Bottle from SAQ Lasalle. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Pale pour. Sticky legs. The aroma is of dried pears and apples. A touch of softly smoky spiciness behind a complex fruit sweetness. A little bit of ascorbate tartness. Sort of floral with a litle bit of dustiness. hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Bottle... Post RBSG ’08 O-Town/Vero Beach Throwdown Chapter 8... Clear, straw-colored perry. Smells like a blend of warm, day old apples and pears destined for pear and apple butter. Full-bodied and oily. Good balance. Sweet and acidic. Acidic, dry finish. Bottle provided by TheCheeseMan!

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Clear light straw color, very little foam. Slightly sweet pear aroma, little tartness evident, kind of musky, overripe fruits. Sweeter taste than aroma gives off - also a little heat on the finish. Nice.
