3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown pond water pour. Pillowy, two-finger eggshell head. An apple-pear blend on the nose with spicy yeast notes. Taste is a fantastic sequence of yeast up front, big pear in the middle with the sage bringing great spice on the end. Works really well. Probably a bit too sweet for my liking, but a really cool beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tart, fruity, and slightly spicy with some sweetness. Pretty complex, and overall good. Strong flavors of pear, and banana-like notes from the Belgian yeast.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Almost golden, almost burnt orange. Bit fizzy, but not much of a head. The aroma hints at applesauce, but once onto the tongue, this definitely has a tart pear character, super green pears at that. The sage adds a funky little herbal edge. Quite unique. (#5400, 12/30/2013)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Light fruity base, some spicy and earthy/herbal notes, and faint peppery notes. I don’t know what white sage is. I do what what pears are. Anyway, this beer was pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy thicker orange and golden with a small head that is gone quickly. Aroma is light warm pear fruitiness matched with sweeter malts. Flavor brings pear showcasing here, with some spice from the sage up front that settles quickly into the fruit. It is balanced quite well.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy gold pour, white head. Sage is present but subdued perfectly, the pears play well with the yeast and sage...hints of sweet and tart. Incredibly well constructed IMO. Enjoyable.
