Golden yellow color. Fruity, sweet aromas of cinnamon cream, baked citrus, and sweet pea blossom with a round, bright, petillant, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, charming, medium-length milk toast, baked pear, pie crusts, and mint finish. A delicious, toasty-sweet perry that warms the soul.

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.
