Leighton (17227) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle shared around a campfire in the Root Glen - Hamilton College, Clinton, NY. Thanks to the Duke for this one. Solid beer. Moderately sweet with some herbal qualities, sugary pale and doughy bread. Modest Belgian yeast expression. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly bitter to finish with some piney herbs and more sweet, pale bread. Good stuff.

brokensail (15214) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap @ 4 Hands. Pours a bright golden color with a white head. Starts off with kind of a weird ketchup aroma. Really sweet pear, hints of acidic apple, sweet sugar, and some bread. Subtle spice and yeast as well. Flavor is heavy on the sugar and sweetness. Lots of pear and baked apple. Light yeast, spice, and grassy hops. Some orange and lemon peel, too.

bhensonb (13528) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is moderately earthy and peppery. Hint of citrus. Med body. Flavor is peppery, earthy, and has a bit of zest that pops up mostly in the finish. Struggling to find pear, but the other flavors are so zingy I’m not sure I’ve got it. This is a really tasty beer, and seems pretty much to style.

Bottle at Max’s tasting. Pours gold with white head. Nose and taste of white pepper, pear juice, lemongrass, yeast and orange zest. Medium body.

BeerandBlues2 (11662) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle shared by noodleuser. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a medium fizzy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, biscuit malt and fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt and fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

crossovert (10681) - Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Draft. Super dry french yeast character, the citrus and pepper is pretty evident.

Ferris (10566) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Draft - Banana, bubblegum and some spice. Clear golf with a decent white head. As it smells, which is a hef. Not really a good saison.

hopscotch (10523) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. I can really smell the pears and spicy peppercorns in here. Also, I’m picking up some lightly floral and fruity hops complimented by a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is fruity, juicy and a touch too sweet. Finishes crisp with lingering sweetness. Including pears as an ingredient was probably a bad idea… simply because I don’t like pears. Also, too much residual sugar for my taste; otherwise, this beer is solid. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
