Smell: Medium aroma. Sour pear, slightly funky.
Initial Taste: Light bite from carbonation, Slightly funky elements to start off that become cleaner.  Semi-dry with a Bartlett pear flavour. Lots of pear skin notes, slightly earthy.
After Taste: Becomes drier and more earthly and skin notes.  More pear-like with a long lingering aftertaste.
On ice: Less juicy, much cleaner.

Additional Notes:  Bayfield Berry Farm’s Perry is a unique, dry and slightly funky Bartlett pear offering.  It’s very skin focused, with some earthy elements.  Becomes smoother as time goes on.  Dramatically cleaner when on-ice.  Quite pear forward.
