Brilliant yellow straw color. Fruity aromas and flavors of banana and peach cream pies and pear butter on Hawaiian bread with a supple, tangy, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy lemon spritzed apples and pears, nougat, and ambrosia salad finish. A appetizing fruit perry crowd-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.
