Hazy straw green color.

The perry/poire tradition is very similar to apple cider tradition. Running parallel to its better-known cousin, pears make for a subtler and more nuanced fruit beverage. Ideally, look for true pear flavors, not sweet, nor cloying. Dryness and minerality are a plus and carbonation level is at the discretion of the producer.
