Perry by E.Z. Orchards is an alcoholic drink made from fermented pears falls under the 2015 BJCP Guidelines as (C1D) New World Perry. The aroma of this perry has a nice floral fragrances with subtle hints of fruit. The appearance of this perry revealed a hue that was almost clear (like water) with very little carbonation in the pour. The perry had nice light, subtle fruit flavors that was hard to discern from apples and/or pears. It had a nice subtle sweetness and light acidity that balanced nicely with one another. The body and mouthfeel of the perry was light.  It would seem that the perry would be flat as described in the initial pour, however this was not the case. It had very good carbonation that was sparkling in the palate. The aftertaste was crisp, clean, light, refreshing. However, as light and subtle the fruit flavors were their was a taste of 'freshness' in this nicely made perry.
