Ok so the pear is non - existent but who cares, pears suck anyway. This is a great summer time pilsner. It has an awesome tangy lemony finish that makes it stand out from your average pale ale or pils. At 6% this beer actually kicks ass.

Pours a hazy orange and dirty brown with minimal head and light sediment. Aroma is musty noble hops. Taste has hints of pear and apple. Not bad, not great.

Aroma is pleasant noble/Saaz hops and pear. Pear is light and is not as pronounced as expected. Appearance is hazy light orange with medium off white head that retains for a bit. Taste is light pear/apple with nice Saaz hopping, honey. Hop bitterness is there but it is slightly leaning toward the malt. Palate is medium and crisp. Sweetness and light bitterness linger. Overall this is a nice beer but not as unique as I expected. Comes across as a nice Pilsener with pleasant yeast derived pear/apple flavors. I was looking for a little more, but still nice to drink.

Transfer from BA review on 12-16-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a big huge pure white thick head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell is big of bready smells as well as a whole bunch of pear. Some grainy smells are there as well being accompanied by some stronger aromas of tea and a little bit of an herbal smell. Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor with some lighter pear and caramel malt flavors upfront. The pear flavors start out lighter, but increase in intensity as the flavor moves toward the end. Along with the pear increasing, so to come some tea flavors. They act similarly to the pear, starting out rather weak and really kicking in at the very end of the taste. Along with these flavor transitions, so too comes some lighter herbal hop flavors which with a little bit of graininess that also comes to the tongue, leaves a rather interesting grainy, tea like, and pear flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are rather appropriate for the fruit, tea, and grainy character of the beer and make for a rather refreshing brew. Overall – This is somewhat like a hybrid of beer mixed with pear iced tea. A relatively odd combination of flavors, but it kind of works as it is rather crisp and refreshing.

Hazy golden with big white head. Typical pilsner aroma: Grass bread lemon zesty. Taste is light malt but substantial in mouthfeel. Pear is subdued and pairs nicely with grassy saaz hop finish. Nice

"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."

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.
