Pear juice is the juice of a pear, which is usually obtained by crushing ripe pears in a juicer. Pear juice is typically a pale cloudy yellow in color, with moderate sweetness, and the typical sweet-banana-musky aroma of pears, which comes from isoamyl acetate.
Pear juice is sometimes fermented into cider, which is called perry. Less expensive versions of pear cider are made from the less expensive apple juice, with pear essence added. Pear juice can also be fermented and then distilled into Pear Williams, a type of fruit brandy.
