500ml bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours an attractive clear, deep gold. Mildly tannic skin notes, vanilla and pear juice make up the aroma. Tart pear skin and a slight leathery flavour up front lead into subtle, slightly sweet pear fruit in the mid-palate. A slight lemon flavour gives it a nice, crisp finish. I don’t know why this rates so poorly; it is a very good example of proper, English medium-dry perry. Very enjoyable. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottled. Still but a fizz upon pour. Pale colour. Fresh, fruity pear aroma. Light, fresh character. This perry is mellow and refreshing with an easy-going pear character and a hint of apple as well. Good, but I wonder if it isn’t a bit simple. olliejobbins (1577) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013

2010 version from Waitrose. Headless pale green. Aroma mildly edgy and cheesy with good tannic mouldering fruit. Dry, tannic and crisp with a ridiculously drinkable Appletise sweetness untainted by toothrot. Just plain wrong.

500 ml bottle, vintage 2010, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Very pale clear golden colour, moderate carbonation, no head. Moderate dryish aroma of perry pears, only a hint of oak and sulphites, Medium dry and fairly crisp flavour of pears, a well balanced fruity acidity, hints of oak, sulphites are not disturbing. A nice refreshment, probably also good with food. Holmen2 (4034) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2015
