750 bottle. Cider is cloudy, light caramel gold with a teeny tiny white, bubbly ring of a head. Sparkling wine-like carbonation trails drifting up to the surface.<P>
Cider smells amazing! Heavy notes of pear, light note of apple; Moderate horsey note, damp spicy wood, aspen sap.<P>
The flavor is juicy sweet. Moderately-to-heavily sweet, moderately dry/acidic finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is tenderly fizzy.

Enticing light gold color with a touch of effervescence. Aromas of sweet rotten fruit with a hint of barnyard (not in a bad way). This tastes amazing: sweet pears, vanilla ice cream, and honey. Finish is a touch cloying, with a sensation on the palate reminiscent of eating fresh pears.

Hazy greenish-yellow colour. Fresh pear nsoe with some light wood character. Crsip and light but with complexity...leather, pear, vague nuttiness. Very refreshing - born for crepes.

Doesn’t smell much like pears. Has the color though and lots of floaties. On closer inspection, I believe the floaties are pieces of the cork. Pretty nice cider actually. Not too bubbly. An expensive, but rather tasty cider.

In the 750 mL bottle from Beertopia. Pours a pale yellow with a fizzy white head that disapates rapidly. Aroma is to die for: intense pear scent and perhaps a faux smell of honey. Thin body, but a large bolus of sweetness blows over your tongue that is quickly followed by a blast of medium-intensity tartness that leaves the tongue just slightly dry. This is delicious, but I would prefer to see it go to a greater level of fermentation, reducing the keen sweetness and increasing the paltry 3% ABV.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2008
Pours almost clear, the color of Bartlett flesh. Highly carbonated, explosive and fun in the mouth. Straightforward pear and clean--like biting into a ripe pear or eating killer gelato. Slight astringency.

2004 Bottle. One of the best Perries that I have had to date. Pours with a medium sized rocky white head that covers a relatively dark (for a perry) chill hazed yellow body. Aroma of pears, plastic, and a bit of wood. Taste is very clean of pear and caramel. Very sweet, but not cloying. Slightly syrupy and lively carbonation. Could drink a lot of this as it tastes quite light. Perfect lunchtime drink.

Wow! A pretty golden beer with just the right amount of fizzy bubbles to help anyone who drinks it realize this is a special one. The aroma was like a love poem written in a secret dark cellar. The flavor moves us from the cellar out into the sunlight - beautiful pear flavor, with supporting citrus and floral notes.

750 ml bottle


I found this at a store near my new house. Given that I wanted something light and a change of pace it seemed like a nice option. At $5.99 the worst case was that it turned out to be very average and I would never get it again. I doubt I’ll buy another bottle but it did exceed my expectations. When you are not in the mood for stouts, porters or IPAs give this one a shot.


Aroma / Appearance - The transparent golden body was graced by a short lived white head. Active carbonation danced from the bottom to exit the top. The scent of musty pears was mixed with a slight funk. Overall it was not very complex but I found it ideal.


Flavor / Palate - Pears form a very tart and abrubt impression on the tongue before passing. It reminds me more of fruit juice than beer which would make sense given that it is only 3%. This is a beer/cider that you could drink all day without too many ill effects. On the other hand too much of it might get a little boring. If you don’t think you want to drink it all find some friends and open a tasting with it.

Aroma is a bit funky. Flavor is like a nice baked pear tart. Very nice blend of sweet and sour.
