500 ml bottle bought at Just Green in SoHo, Central.
Looks: Translucent pale pear juice colour; Near zero head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; No lacing with active carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and very sweet pear wine, with strong yoghurt tartness, strong alcohol, sandalwood, funk, nice pear flesh, strong floral, strong sugar and strong tannic.
Taste: Medium sweet pear wine, with very strong yoghurt tartness, alcohol, strong liquorices, pear flesh, funk, sugar, fair wood barrel and tannin.
Body: Light body. Quite slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Strong and fleshy pear wine with very well balanced strong sweetness and strong yoghurt tartness, touched by nice funky wood barrel throughout. Quite boozy with strong liquorices and fair tannin for a chop-licking medium bitter finish. Very nice!
After Taste: Fairly dry. Sweet, boozy funky and bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one is strong in aroma and taste - fruity peary, sweet, tart, boozy and woody - with the funky character an unexpected bonus. More than a match for my favourite Marks & Spencer Pear Cider, this is sweet strong cider at its best. Recommended!

Nose is mellow sweetish pear, low sweet pear, sweet but not heavily so. Taste is low mineral, touch sulfur-like note, basic sweet pear, not very expressive. Low fine carbonation, sweet but not extremely so. About okay. Zlotta (4139) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2016
Sampled from bottle at ’In de Wildeman’ during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016. Clear, pale straw yellow. Sourish-fruity aroma of pear, some apples and a touch of gooseberry. Sweetish, slightly sourish, fruity taste of pear, apple and white grapes, followed by a short, slightly tart and dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent and quite astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice! Benzai (16918) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016
