It’s gimmicky for sure, but I like it anyway. Good balance between Saaz hops and light fruit sweetness. Reminds me of a variation on an Arnold Palmer.

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 (863) - 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.

Gold pour, little sediment, creamy white head. nose is pils malt and, yes, some pear. Sweeter than a usual pilsner. Middle is soft malt at the front, followed by quick and noticeable pear. Finish is nice , lasting , Saaz hopiness.

Aroma is light fruit, light hops, Clear Golden color. Creamy White head is lastingTaste is tart pear. The pear pretty much dominates. Touch of hoppy aftertaste that fades to hair spray pretty quickly.Feel is creamy up front with nice carbonation underneath.Not bad. I feel like the pear doesn?t quite fit this beer. Maybe with something stronger like an ipa or an apa, it would not take over as much. Still above average.

Deep gold, effervescent, tight white head. Yeasty nose. Full body, moderate flavor, moderate heat and carbonation, long palate. Very bittersweet with bitterness predominating in the finish, refreshing acidity, good balance. Fruity, hoppy, yeasty. Lager with the soul of an ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle picked up at cheese mongers Leavenworth. Pours out a cloudy golden topped with a white head. Nose is spice pepper some grassy notes. Taste is more of the spice and bread malts and a nice end.

12 oz. bottle served in a flute- poured a transparent thin yellow color, very lively carbonation, wafer thin white head formed atop the liquid surface, nominal lacing upon the vessel. Aroma of Saaz hops, pear, and straw. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt has some body to it- which is enjoyable, middle has some light sweetness, finish is somewhat drying and crisp. Not too shabby!
