5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle:   Pale golden in color, slight haze, moderate white head, frothy, a few rings of lacing.   Sweaty and wet sock on the nose, a bit of pale fruit and bright wheat.   On the tongue its wheaty, slightly tart, a little bit dry, with a very soft bartlett pear like background.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as dry, tart, and crisp as others in the style.   A bit more fruity than usual, well fruity in that pear aspect.   Not bad, enjoyable, but not what I was expecting.   Good start, but needs to be brighter, tart, and much more dry.
