4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- A light fruitiness (If I didn’t know it was brewed with Pear juice, I’m not sure i would’ve picked it out as pear). Light citrus, herb, and earthy, peppery hops. Bready malts.
Taste- Light grapefruit, pear, bready malts, cracker, big tea notes, and slight earthy hop. Sometimes a lemony flavor is there as well. Bready, tea-like aftertaste.
Overall- I was most impressed by the characteristics brought in by the tea, but the balance was well worth remembering as well. I loved the subtle grapefruit and earthy hop presence that popped in and out. Probably as complex as a lighter beer can get. I’ve never been much of a Pilsener man, but if I ever get the urge, this is what I’m buying.

"I’d think of this as a pilsner first, that just happens to have some pear juice. Pretty classic pils aroma and taste at first, a little surprising. Good n crisp, noble hop presence. Only as it warmed did the pear become obvious. Cold, it was just a hint except for in the aftertaste. A nice change, and a cheaper one, from all the expensive arse ancient honey based brews."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12fl oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head pilsner glass. Golden orange with a tall white head. Aroma is light citrus. Flavor is basically pears and hops. Nothing very exciting about this one. Decent pilsner but not really my thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold, less clarity than a classic pilsner. The aroma has some grain notes and a spiced hop with almost a hint of chardonnay grapes. On the taste the pear is subtle, but present. There is a nice body of grainy German malt that lingers under the somewhat tart, crisp forefront. A very interesting take on a pilsner, certainly unique.

From a 12 oz bottle.
This cloudy amber brew has a fairly good head and a surpisingly smooth and full feel. Fruity, although the specific contribution from pears is a bit subtle. A little more bitter and tart than sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Hazy light orange pour with a thin white head. Odd nose of pear and grass. A touch sweet up front with pear juice notes. A little grassy bitterness on the back end. Fairly bright and crisp. I don’t dig pear in my Pils though.

Wow what a nice flavor on this pilsner. The aroma is a nice hoppy lightness. Flavor is smooth and lightly hoppy. The pear juice is not coming through much, but the hops is a nice great refreshing addition.
