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.

Poured into a pils glass. 4.25 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One finger of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is good and a large ring of lacing is left. 4.25 S: Quite an interesting take on the pils. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. A touch of herbalness. Pear complements extremely well. 4.25 T: Taste is just as good. The pear comes out more prominently in the taste and again it fits right in. Grainy neutral maltiness. Grassy and earthy hops. Well done. 4.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth. 4.25 D: I’m surprised how good of a beer this is. It wouldn’t be an everyday pils, but its a damn good stray from the norm. ★ 710 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 05, 2014

dionysus (1473) - Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is floral/perfumy with notes of fresh cut grass, white pear, honeysuckle, and bready malt. Flavor is strange. Oversteeped tea tannin and syrupy pear mixed with herbal hops and bready malt. Definitely not my cup of tea (pun intended). Overall body is moderate and the finish is bitter.

ChiGuy68 (454) - Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a murky golden hue with a frothy yet bubbly white head and plentiful streaky lacing. Nose is grassy malt with a hint of lemon zest. Refreshingly smooth, bitter-sweet tasting Pils, with a bit of pear on the back end. Although I’m a bit of a Hop-Head I’m enjoying this little number.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World Of Beer in Pooler, GA. This beer has a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is full of hops and malt, very nice smell. The flavor is once again hops with a great flavor. Another enjoyable beer from Dogfish Head.

Bottle at a BBQ, 8/8/2015
The pear is subtle, but noticeable. It adds a bit of sweetness to the fairly clean and drinkable pilsener that lies underneath. Solid.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2015
12oz bottle, poured into a footed pilsner glass. The aroma is stoney / mineral-like with a spiciness to it and a light pear note that strengthens late. The hue of the beer is yellow with a light haze and persistent effervescence , and it’s topped by a white, fluffy foam head that only has a light retain and lace. The beer is a medium bitter and sweet. It’s oily with a light foam carbonation and a medium light body flavored with bread, rocks, spice, bitter citrus, and a light pear. It finishes crisp and spicy with minerals and is lightly dry. The aftertaste is moderately strong, but short with minerals and bitter citrus with spice and a hint of pear.
