Bottle @ yespr tasting. No head. Color is water. Aroma and taste are perries, sugar and wood. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Vintage 2010. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Very odd artificial aroma. Medium body, a little sweetness and then these odd fruity accents that don’t appear like anything else really - and certainly not pears. Chemical finish. 230212

500ml bottle from Waitrose of all places, looks like a glass of white wine. (Light carbonation). Sweetshop aroma with a tiny hint of oak, and a mainly bubblegum flavour. Robust alcohol kick. I was pleasantly suprised by this.

Brought across the pond and shared by a friend. Poured a deep clear golden color. Still so no head. Smells of non descript pomme fruit with just a hint of sulfur that was gone before my second sip. Smell is fruity sweet with barely a touch of oak. If the label hadn’t said perry I’m not sure I wouldn’t have mistaken this for a cider. Taste is smooth and sweet. More apple than pear flavor with hints of vanilla and oak. Medium to thin body, Still, with a sweet fruity mouthfeel. This is my first perry, I was kind of expecting something different. I thought this was fairly tasty, although it seemed a bit boring. The oak was barely there and I’d heard perry would have a bit of tartness. Malolactic fermentation?

Bottle, 500ml. A pale straw colour, no carbonation. A light pear aroma. Plenty of pear in the flavour with some hints of spice, I’d say medium-sweet. Very refreshing and drinkable, with a slight warming quality to it. Personally I like my perry offensively strong, both in flavour and alcohol content, with a good kick of sourness, which this doesn’t deliver. But this is an easy-drinking perry intended to appeal to the mass market, which it does well and I’d certainly buy it again. Was surprised to see that it was 8% actually, as it doesn’t strike me as being that strong.

Leighton (22327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a few bubbles. Slightly dank, funky aroma with plenty of pears. Very sweet, with some dirty mustiness and strong booze notes. Light to medium in body with fine, fizzy carbonation and some warmth. Finish is quite sweet, lightly dry and dank. Not bad overall.

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Pale yellow in colour with slight carbonation. Light, slightly tart pear aroma with a hint of wood. Flavour began with some sweetish pear juice, followed by a hint of spice, oak and dryish finish. Ok.

rauchbier (3934) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle, from Waitrose Hull. Pale gold, no head and moderate condition. Gentle citrus fruity, almost grapefruit nose, quite dry in the mouth with gentle fruitiness, short dry fruity finish with hints of boiled sweets and warming retronasal alcohol.

It poured out resembling Cristal.I drank this from a huge over sized wine goblet. I’d not had a drink in 7 dayz. My mind was as jaded as a mofo...I put on some vintage R Kelly tunes and let this pear juice buzz through my organs. I expected more funky shit from this, like some rural ciders, but its a mellow, very enjoyable-sweet and dry offering. Puckering and soothing. This is pretty cool. I feel better already.

fonefan (51126) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle 500ml. @ [ Chris O’s pre NYE Tasting ].
[ Vintage 2007 ]. Clear light to medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Aroma is sour sweet pear. Flavor is moderate sweet and light acidic with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20081230]
