Pale yellow straw color. Bright, fruity, smoky aromas and flavors of grilled pears, smoked nuts, white blossoms, and kiwi and lychee with a velvety, bright, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, breezy quince, nutskin, and mossy earth finish. A pleasant perry pleaser.

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.
