COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is part of Perry’s barrel-ageing programme. It ferments the cider to 5.5% using wild yeasts, before ageing for four months in oak barrels. Finally, the cider is sweetened with pear juice, giving a well-balanced hybrid cider which is refreshingly on the sweet side with notes of apple, pear and wood from the oak barrels.

3.5
The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bag in a box at The Willow Walk, as Perry’s OPA – oak pears and apple. A wild cider aged for 4 months in oak. Pleased to find this on the penultimate day of the festival. Dragon pump clip. Cloudy opaque pale yellow, still, minimal white head. Aroma is elderflower cordial, apple juice. Body is smooth, quite oily, low carbonation. Taste has the promised pear and apple juice notes, semisweet, fruit salad syrup, light oak dimension, touch medicinal, the slightest TCP note but mostly dry pear and apple fruitiness A tasty drink to have in this ’heatwave’ (we’re talking British standards). Good.

3.3
ManVsBeer (10967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Box @ Cuthbert Brodrick, Leeds. Hazy dishwater-yellow coloured. Has a dominant watery sweetness over some of its drier characteristics. The oak barrel influence is there, but light, and the fusion of apple and perry pear works well here.

4.3
minutemat (6132) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Box @ Shrewsbury Hotel. Pours misty yellow, aroma of musty pear, pulp, apple tart. Taste is a very moreish blend of apple with pear tartin and subtle glimpses of apple core. Complex but well integrated blend of flavours. This really is an excellent cider by an excellent producer.

3.3
harrisoni (19403) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bag in a box at County Hotel Ashford JDW. Hazy yellow green colour lasting white head. notich oak. A little cold stewed apple. Some pear flesh. Good flavours and drunkable enough. A little tannin i suppose. Good.

3.9
wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Bag-in-a-box at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading. Pale greenish-gold with a faint haze. Very smooth. Lots of vanilla and some wood up front - the barrel-ageing is very obvious. Sharp, funky apple behind. Sweet ripe pears in the finish. Great balance, great depth of flavour, very drinkable and interesting to boot. An excellent cider, although if you don’t like barrel-ageing it may not be for you!
