ben4321 (3559) - 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 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.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2013
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. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

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.

pdx77 (1019) - Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2013
On draught at 26th Oregon Brewers Festival. Cloudy golden color. Aroma is spicy, with pepper and cooking spice. Taste is spiced ale, but pear is not coming through. Good spiced beer, but wanted some pear also.

Fantabox (16) - USA - AUG 18, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a golden color, with an aroma of spice. Tasted a bit of cumin and cardamom, not a whole lot of pear taste. It is a nice, easy to drink beer.

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.
