Hazy yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of fallen citrus rind, baked pear, and ginkgo tree with a soft, bright, spritzy, dryish light body and a sleek, scant banana puree, pear butter, and carnation finish. A super-light Perry for hot summer days.

The perry/poire tradition is very similar to apple cider tradition. Running parallel to its better-known cousin, pears make for a subtler and more nuanced fruit beverage. Ideally, look for true pear flavors, not sweet, nor cloying. Dryness and minerality are a plus and carbonation level is at the discretion of the producer.
