Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Appearance: Clear golden/straw/green with bubbly white head on the pour. Aroma: Pear, musty, earthy, floral, note of barnyard, vanilla, woody, buttery and spicy. Taste: Medium acidity and tannin, low/medium sweetness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, average carbonation, lingering pear, vanilla, caramel/toffee finish. Comments: Delicious. The most assertive Perry I have had to date. 2011 Vintage. 2013 Vintage: Same as above but prickly carbonation, no vanilla, no barnyard in the aroma or finish. More of a pear, buttery caramel aroma and palate with a dry, lingering pear, white wine and caramel like finish. Again a very good Perry.

Drinkable perry, but I would expect a more interesting and complex flavour for its 8abv .
