3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden, thin head, fizzy. Dry, spicy finish. The pepper is complex and varied. The pear juice perhaps countered the pepper. A refreshing taste that faded as it warmed. A good starter and a good American version of the type.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Too dry, too peppery and acidic, not even remotely sweet or fruity - where was the pear?!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber from strykzone; very nice saison... yellow pour with fizzy head. easy to drink - it was hot today and no ac so perfect beer for the afternoon - yeast, citrus, slight tartness. No way I knew there was pear in there before reading the bottle, but it added a nice touch to the brew - less of a beer, but a good drink if that makes sense; slightly drying at end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
