Gold color. Sulfurous aromas and flavors of struck match, char-grilled apples and pears, and lit candle with a supple, tart, spritzy, dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, odd, relaxed grilled lemon, pickled melon rind, and grass finish. A very smoky, challenging perry for 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.
