3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!
