Tap at OBF. Pours hazy dark gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pear and asian spice. Med body. Flavor of pear with lots of cardamom - and maybe a slight Thai/Indian flavor. Different and very drinkable.

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.

mcberko (9568) - 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.

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bomber from State Line. Pours turbid golden with white clingy head. Nose is pale malt, pear, white peppercorns. Tasted bready and creamy, with pale malt, notes of pear, and a moderate white peppercorn flavor that melds well with the beer. This one was very good.

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.

Draft at pony with Andrew. Pours a clear golden body with light white lacing. Aroma is weird metal, pennies and some funky floral notes. Mouthfeel is medium to light with lots of spice, fruit, and grain. Nahh.

5000 (6300) - 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...

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle a few months back. Hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of ginger as well as some pear notes. Quite spicy smelling. The flavor is very similar. There is a ton of ginger and cumin in the flavor as well as some sweet pear notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A definite spice bomb. My only complaint is that I wish the pear stood out more.

22oz bottle. Poured a clear, slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was notes of spices (corriander, cumin), some banana and sweet pear notes. Flavor was notes of spices, some light sweet fruit notes, with some dry honey character. Interesting.
