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.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
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...

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
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
Overall Impression: 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.

Tap at stags head finishing up strangest beer flight. Pours hazy golden with sweetband spicy nose. Tastes of candied pears, white pepper, coriander, floral, and blue cheese. Odd tasting and pretty sweet with artificial flavored finish.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
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.

Gription79 (2310) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours cloudy orange. The aroma its citrus, orange, musty, herbal. The flavor its malty, cardboard, spicy, tannic. This seems oxidized.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of herbs, spices, pear skin, orange and lemon peel, lemongrass and light earth. Medium body. Real nice beer if you like spice/herbs.

Beerandhockey8 (233) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - OCT 13, 2013
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a dull yellow, thin bubbly white head. Nose is super sweet, fruity, clove, slight hop. Light bodied, bitter and hints of sweet coming through, more of a hop bitterness then the nose lets you think. Decent beer, it definitely lives up to the Oddland name.
