Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a clear blind color with lots of fluffy head and good lacing. Aroma is classic pilsner with a hint of something sweet. Taste is full of saaz hops and a good malt backbone. This reminds me of traditional pils from Europe. However, DFH has decided to add a sweet touch to it. Nice brew, very nice!

Bottle - Smells malty sweet. Kind of a dry taste to it, can’t taste much if any pear flavoring. No bitterness with a large amount of malt flavor going on. Has a pretty light flavor to it, much lighter than I expect from a Dogfish crafted beer.

Pours clear brilliant gold, fluffy white head. Mildly sweet aroma. Hoppy, moderate bitterness, tad sweet, notes of the tea really come through and compliment the hops/bitterness. A nice take on a style that can get monotonous, I say the risk resulted in a great reward for the drinker. A new favorite.

Panzuriel (1626) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at Natalie’s coal fired pizza. Piercing pils is a clear lighter golden with a good head of white foam. Nose is light roasted malt. Taste is a good crisp bitters and mild malt. Light sweetness. Body is light and crisp. Clean finish.

sawbuck (546) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Citrus aroma, some pear/pineapple...a bit off. Crystal clear gold with a frothy white head. Sweet citrus up front. Fruity up front with some corn as well. Peppery bitterness follows. Crisp mouth feel, refreshing. The mix of fruit with pilsner is interesting but not my cup of tea. Will try again in summer as it is Zero degrees at the moment.

LilBeerDoctor (3581) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear pale orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malts, earthy hops, light fruits, apricot. Flavor of pale malts with sweet fruits and pear in the finish. Also floral hops and a slightly spicy, bitter hop presence. The pear juice is subtle but certainly present. Lightly hopped. An excellent variant pilsener. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Slightly Hazy Golden Color, Huge Foamy Head That Lasts And Leaves Lots Of Thick Lacing. Pear Aroma. Lively Above Average Carbonation. Sweet Mild Pear, With Modest Hop Bitter Finish and Aftertaste. After Trying their Tweason’ Ale I was somewhat skeptical of yet another Fruit Beer. Pleasant Surprise, This One actually Pretty Good. Easy Drinker. Enjoyed It. Worth A Try.

scotchzombie (481) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Hazy gold with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is crisp pale malt with a touch of fruit. Taste follows with noble hop bitter finish and notes of pearfruit. Pretty damn good rep of a pils. The fruit additions subtly enhance the classic crisp, dry pils. Excellent for the style.

Cybercat (4426) - Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Pours clear yellow with a thick eggshell head that has some staying power. Crisp aroma presents fresh malt and pear tones, nothing special but appetizing. Flavor delivers crisp malty and firm near-perry notes, rather like a pils mixed with pear cider. Resiny, slightly bitter hops provide a nice undertone. Mouthfeel features average body and fizz, and it goes down nicely. Let it pierce you.
