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, Iím a huge fan.

Draught @ Elysian Brewing, Seattle, WA
Pours clear yellowish golden with a white head. Aroma of pear, spices, citrus and fruits. Taste is very spicy and fruity with some pear juicy notes and caramom. Finish is spicy and fruity with some sweet juicy pear notes. The spices donít quite fit in here, feels quite strange.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of lots of spices (peppery, rye, bitter, ginger, clove) with light fruits and pear. Flavor of spices upfront with flowery perfume and light fruits in the finish. It is heavily spiced, probably more than it is pear-y. I was excited and afraid to try this beer but it is pretty good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very mild aroma, much of nothing going on, no pear to be found. Bright carbonation, biscuit flavors, nothing else. Zero pear. Zero spices. Que?

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours like pear juice with a sticky and dense white head. Definitely looks the part of a pear beer. The first thing to hit you on the nose is ginger followed closely by oven baked pears, cinnamon, honey and cloves. Plenty of spice in this one. Taste is a little all over the place and at first was a bit of a shock to my palate but after a while you get used to it - heaps of ginger, mild apricot and pear, cinnamon, honeyed oats and grassiness. If youíre a ginger beer fan then you will probably dig this. A little sweet for my liking but the loaded spices are nice. Odd stuff, pretty solid
