As the warm sun glistens over fields and farms of the English countryside, Conference Pears grow ripe and ready for harvest. Traditionally pressed from just one harvest, their sweet and juicy flesh gives this fruity cider its well-balanced flavour of floral and grassy notes. With a refreshing and crisp character, Pearwood is delicious served chilled with pan seared scallops or the humble pork pie.

12/03/2017 - from cider ratings backlog.

500ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, greenish tint like wine, with a thin white head stays for a while around the edge. Aroma of fresh sweet pears, sweet, floral, grass. Taste of medium sweet pears, some floral grassy notes. Medium dry. Crisp. Excellent perry.

Bottle from ocado online. Yellow fizzy. Aroma of pear with some Funk and wood. Taste is pear drops, some barnyard, vanilla and a little wood. Good.

500 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok during “YATA Oktoberfest” promotion.

Clear very pale golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Tart aroma of light pear wine, with light wood barrel, very light apple juice and light tannic; Close to medium sweet taste of pine wine, with light yoghurt tartness, pear puree, light apple juice, very light alcohol, carbo, light grass, and faint tannic; Light body, thin and fruity palate; Mouth feel is very fruity with strong grassy edge. Pear taste is like puree with small amount of apple juice. Tastable booze and just right sweetness, not domineering and mixed well with the fruity, light winey taste. Quite nice! Slightly dry after taste, very easy and quite fruity to mouth.

Comments: This one is easy, nothing complicated, yet fruity and subtle, like an entry Perry with more to offer and eager to please. Easily drinkable!

5000 ml bottle. Pours extremely pale clear yellow, perhaps pale green. No head. Aroma is really nice and fruity with a bit of bite. Very sweet pears taste. Fizzy, zingy and very nice.

Pours an attractive pale green colour without too much carbonation. Aroma and taste as expected are of pear.

tommann (3975) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours pale green gold with little carbonation. Aroma is acidic pear with a hint of cheese. Taste is fruity to start, light acidic finish and pear on the aftertaste.

A nice perry. Not too sweet and very drinkable, slightly bitter on the tongue, but not overly so. Over all enjoyable.

Perfect perry colour, looking like a big glass of reisling. The smell is similar to aromatic white wine as well. It’s not until you take your nose from the glass and consider it for a while that you think "Hmm, yes. Pears." There’s a fruity acid quality at first. Upon tasting there’s a good gooseberry and pear sweetness. This is a real sweety and one of my best Perrys methinks.

Pours a light golden colour and has lots of pear in the aroma and has plenty of pear in the taste refreshing stuff.
