Clear gold color. Bright, earthy, interesting aromas and flavors of freshly picked pears in a wicker basket, moss and clay, and brass candelabra with a silky, vibrant, effervescent, cloying medium body and a seamless, complex, medium-long honey roasted pears, apple skin, and citrus vinaigrette finish. A complex and nuanced perry with rich rewarding flavors.

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.
