Like #8, this is a hopped perry, rather than hopped cider.
Hazy, golden yellow, with a pungent aroma of hops and woody pears.
Intense, floral hop flavour, with a bitter edge, becomes more mellow and buttery in the aftertaste, with pear and a little wood in the finish.
Drinkable, and probably quite sessionable, this is quite a complex perry, with some depth of flavour. It may well go well with light almond biscuits or frangipanes. Not as successful as #8, which was exceptional, but good nonetheless.
