tmoreau (2902) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2015
On tap at the Beer House Chicago in Lombard, IL. as a 5 oz. serving dispensed to a flight/fest glass, displaying a clear, light gold, almost straw color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was lightly floral, subtle yeast & spice, with esters as pear, with some sweetness, and a bit of tartness. Light to medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with a touch of orange zest showing up for the flavor, some dryness, but no noticeable hop bitterness. Quite flavorful & bright.

Narnad (1502) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours a very clean golden/orange color with a modest low white head. Aroma has a strong pear nose, light citrus zing to it with just a touch of very light farmhouse funk at the finish. Flavor is sweet with pears, apples, white grapes coming through in the tasting early. This is followed up by a smooth spicy note. The description says pepper but I am not getting a peppery flavor more coriander-ish than pepper. Body is smooth with very fine carbonation providing a bit of a sharp tongue tickle. Overall a very good brew. Lots of flavor for a 6% beer.

jayzz (482) - Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Has a peppered citrus aroma and a malty citrus flavor with a slight sweet finish. Unusual with a very complex combination of Finish’s.

AirForceHops (4371) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at Binny’s South Loop. Mostly hazy color gold thin retention in a snifter. Aroma is zesty spice / yeast with a light fruit note that doesn’t scream out pear but… yep, ok. More apple to me.

The flavor is herbal and zesty with the Belgian yeast notable but not overpowering by any sense. The fruit is like a pear apple hybrid that is grainy and juicy at the same time. Also, pretty sweet taste, baked bread and sugars. Its feels like it is a little forced as far as composition. A decent American version of the style but I would rather just reach for a true Belgian, that is of course if I could get more fresh ones here in the U.S. Overall still pretty well made.

Martinus (3638) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Clear golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, pepper, white pepper, pear. Sweet malty flavour, pear. Finish pear, light pepper, light malts. Lots of pear. Not quite a saison in my book.
(From 65cL bottle @ the ’tick countries & enjoy some good beers’ tasting. Thanks for sharing, Tim!)

On tap at iL Lazzarone's. Aroma is orange peel, lemon, straw, bread and pepper. Taste is same as aroma with the addition of some earthiness and some mango-like fruitiness. Medium, dry mouthfeel with lots of carbonation and carbonation sting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
