Style: Standard Cider / Perry
Style Information
Ciders are made from apple juice and fermented to create what is sometimes known as "Hard Cider". A wide variety of apple types can be used and will slightly affect the qualities of aroma and flavor. In general, the carbonation will be notable.

Perry is essentially the same as a cider, with the difference being that pear juice is used instead of apple juice.

From Wikipedia - Cider:

"Cider is a beverage made from apple juice. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties are produced.

Alcoholic cider is made from the fermented juice of apples and is known in the United States and Canada as hard cider; non-alcoholic cider is called apple cider. Alcoholic cider varies in alcohol content from 2% ABV in French cidre doux to 8.5% ABV or more in traditional English ciders."

From Wikipedia - Perry:

"Perry is an alcoholic beverage made of fermented pear juice. It is similar to cider, in that it is made using a similar process and often has a similar alcoholic content, up to 8.5% alcohol by volume. The term Pear Cider is sometimes used and is considered equivalent to perry by some industry bodies."
