Hazy light emerald straw color. Aromas of winter pear, violet, tangerine peels, and carnation with a glycerous, prickly, petillant, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, breezy coconut oil, key lime, and champagne vinegar finish. A zingy Perry to serve with rich foods.

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.
