MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bomber. Pyrus pours a hazy light straw color with a massive head and aromas of honey, pears, grass/hayfield and maybe white grape juice. Flavor is sweet and sharp, with an almost boozy edge to it that I often find in French versions of the Saison genre. Even at 6% there is a little warmth, but more than that an alcoholic sharpness that doesn’t sit quite right. It seems to abate a bit as the beer warms though and the honey/pear sweetness comes through much cleaner. Not my favorite, but decent enough. Oddly, I don’t pick up on either the orange zest or the pepper...

cbfobes (2269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at 4 Hands, pours a bright light gold with a thin head, the aroma is of yeast and tart pear, the fruit really comes through, nice, the aroma is much of the same with some tart fruit in the front end with a yeast and barnyard like finish, real clean though, crisp through out, very nice.

Draft at the Bridge Tap House in STL. Pours a light golden, slightly hazy. Crisp floral, grassy hops. A dry golden saison, for sure. Some white pepper. Not the expected yeast profile. Solid, but unassuming.
