Clear, light perry with modest ginger flavor. We tried a can and wondered if the stronger ginger flavor reported might have been from a tap. Ours generated only the slightest tingle and was not nearly as strong as apple-based ginger ciders we have had.

Clear pale gold pour with moderate to heavy carbonation. Aroma of light ginger and pear. Taste is tart and spicy with ginger upfront backed by light apple and pear flavors. Thin body.

Pour is a pretty pale gold. From there is goes downhill. Based on trying several Argus Ciders, I believe they use a lot of lager yeasts and I am not a fan. The aroma is a light fruit that is quickly overpowered by a yeasty smell. The taste is slightly tart followed by heavy sour, again, I think it’s from yeast. It finishes again like a lager yeast with that sour bite, which isn’t ginger! That’s the other problem. I don’t get ginger. My wife said she pick up some on the taste right at first but agreed that the sour and yeast flavors soon overpower it. I personally never got ginger but remember, I like my adjuncts front and center. Smack me in the taste buds with it! I would encourage Argus to experiment with some other yeasts. Texas, like me is a warmer climate so try a Saison Ale or for a neutral profile, CBC-1.

I'm no ginger fan so I wasn't expecting to like this at a tasting, but I might as well comment the ginger is decently heavy on this one. Not so much in the actual flavor, but in the smell (it gets in your nasal passages when drinking it), and in the finish & after taste. It was a bit overpowering so I couldn't tell this was actually a true perry (only from pear juice) or pick out any other flavors. A couple sips was plenty for me.

This is a nice light ginger perry. It has a nice apple flavor with a spicy finish O felt on the back of my throat.
