Our first crack at using pear in brewing! This light bodied beer is a beautiful straw color and has a smooth crisp finish with a delicious and quenching pear flavor. A great easy-drinking beer thatís perfect to kick off the summer!

Draft at brewery. Big pear aroma. Looks like cider. Taste is overly sweet, almost artificial. Slightly medicinal. Wouldnít want a fulll pint of this.

Aromas of pear, bread, and cotton candy. A clear, pinkish straw complexion, with a quickly fading head. Dry with flavors of fresh pears and bread. Light bodied, very clean.

Keg @ Devilís Backbone. The pourís light gold with a weak white head. The nose is general pale malt. Some pear and honeyed apple. The taste is quite sweet. Canned pear syrup. Mild grain. White bread. Light body, a bit slick on the palate. Overall, a bit sweet for my tastes.

Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear very pale straw yellow. Medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of big pear notes with pale malts. The taste is pears, apples, pale grainy malts and a faint bitter finish. Very cider like. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, pretty drinkable.

On tap at Rustico Ballston. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a clear light golden color with a nice white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose has subtle pear and a very, very light sugary tartness. Grain behind that. Flavor was smooth with mild fruit and a nice light maltiness in the background. Light body with good carbonation. Very refreshing.
