Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Delicate, funky, rustic grassy elegant aromas and flavors of waxy pears, oily nuts, moss, and kelp with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a tingling, medium-length marinated golden beets and green tomatoes, pear seltzer, starfruit and jicama, and limestone finish. An interesting, savory, earthy perry that will shine at the table.

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.
