2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours gold with a fading head.
Nose shows some mix of cardamon, cumin, nutmeg, cloves or star anise along with a hint of baked pears. Not sure about the savoury cumin-like character.
More cardamon as a flavour along with a harsh, herbal astringency. Very little supporting malt and the aggressive bitterness clashes with the spices.
Carbonation is too high.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small wispy white head. The nose is quite spicy, smells like cinnamon and pear with some bready pale malt. Tastes just as spicy as it smells, not sure what all is in here, but tastes like cinnamon and sage or some other herb. Pretty light on the pear flavor, but there is some on the finish. Lingering herbal notes. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation. Interesting, but I wouldn’t want a full bomber of it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Odd....OK, well anyway odd beer. On tap at Orenco Taphouse. A spicy fruity nose. The flavor almost seems to have some cedar, a bit of pepper, lemons, medium spicy hops, banana and honey. Interesting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Bright straw, faint haze, orangish, thin frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Seems to have like a pink peppercorn like nose.   Lots of peppercorn, maybe even white.   Not getting any pear, at least on the nose.   Peppery start, perhaps a very faint aspect of pear.   The pepper aspect makes me think this should be a Blueberry beer instead.   If there is pear there, its very faint, too faint.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Feels a little spritzy at times too.   Perhaps as it warms a little of the pear comes out, but all in all, this beer is mostly peppercorn of some variety.   Meh...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 12/1/13
Aroma: The nose is full of Asian spices (ginger, white pepper, and 5 spice) and, of course, pear
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden color with a small white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is heavily spiced like the nose, with some medium fruity sweetness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a tingly, spicy feel, plus carbonation, and a dry finish
First rating of December might as well be another In a long line of Asian spiced pear flavored beers. Boy is this a played out style. Seriously though, I love the creativity here. What a unique and awesome experiment. As a beer it is good, although it may not be my absolute favorite, but conceptually, I’m a huge fan.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Craft Beer Market Vancouver, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of strong spices upfront, followed by pear. Flavour brings out more of the pear upfront, followed by medium spiciness. Well-integrated, just not a big fan of the combination. Decent.
