COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For years, we've been telling you that great taste grows on trees -- apple trees that is. But just across the orchard we discovered another kind of great taste. We went out on a limb and created Woodchuck Pear Cider, a crisply refreshing drink with the tantalizing essence of pear. You can buy it in 6-packs or on draft.

Almost clear in appearance, with no head. Very light aroma of pear, and the flavor seems to be just a slightly stronger imitation of the aroma. Very watery, and not nearly as appealing as the apple ciders from the same company.

Probably my least favorite out of all the woodchucks. Not terrible, but you could do better.

Tulip pour, faint light golden. Aroma is bubble gum and cotton candy, synthetic. Flavor is candy sugar and light pear notes, but nothing spectacular. I don’t love it.

If you love pear you’ll love this. Very sweet. Smells just like pear with a hint of apple. Great for a hard cider. wasn’t a fan of the apple ciders but this one stands out.

Backlog. Pours straw yellow. Nose and taste of pear, apple and sugar. Lighter medium body. Pretty straightforward.

EithCubes (4704) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle. Nose is dusty pear, pours very nearly clear with just a faint yellow tinge, short fizzy white head is gone in a few seconds, above-avg carb. Sweet taste, not too sweet, light-medium body fizzy rather than crisp, faintly tart, no bitterness. There’s some refreshment to be had here, but the overall flavor is more artificial than even some of their apple offerings.

Ed5388 (1972) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours an almost clear color with a yellowish tint. Aroma is sweet sugary apples and pears. Taste is the same. Overly sweet sugary pears and apples.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle while trick or treating. Aroma has sweet fruits. Taste is of pear and apple and simple sugar. Light, crisp and not cloying. Refreshing enough. Shrug?

Not bad, but I’m not a fan of pear ciders, sweet, lots of pear, easy to drink, good stuff

bottle. very pale straw with minimal head. overly sweet pear flavor. lacking quite of bit of complexity compared to better perrys that i’ve had.

Light aroma, slightly sweet taste reminiscent of Arbor Mist White Pear wine. Very scanty aftertaste.
