Minutely hazy light emerald straw color. Smoky aromas of burnt sugar, grilled pears, forest with mushrooms, and lit candle with a soft, spritzy, body and a tingling, weird, short musty melon, nutshell, grass, and pond water finish. A funky, musty and very astringent perry for paring with equally funky cheeses.

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.
