phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
750 ml bottle from Parker’s Table. Pours a dull pear juice color with a big white head. Aroma of pears, sugar, dough, sage, florals, ginger, citrus, funk, and cream. Flavor of pears, sourdough, sage, ginger, straw, and grass. Light-bodied, with a dry, funky, floral mouthfeel and light-moderate carbonation. Does not at all seem like a 9.3% big Belgian. Really unusual beer.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a cloudy gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of straw, pear, citrus and a hint of sage. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of straw, pear, light citrus, light barnyard funk and a hint of sage with a crisp dry lightly tart lingering pear finish.

DrSilverworm (6934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2013
750ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Totally cloudy murky khaki brown color. Thin khaki head. Loose bits of lace. Gingery, piney, citrusy, limey flavor. Sort of tart taste, and pear fruit. Smooth, soft carbonation, more dry finish. Very soft, dry. Stronger carbonation. OK belgian ale for me. Best thing for it for me is how well it hides the 9.3% alcohol. Nice pear aroma in the finish, though.

b3shine (5819) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by phaleslu). Looks solid; a cloudy light beige orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of Belgian yeast, pears, and sage. Solid on the palate. An interesting beer.

jandd1983 (2740) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2013
It poured a golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of grapefruit and some yeastiness. It had a medium body with an herbal character. The taste was of fruity yeasts and malts with a finish that was fruity with a white sage aftertaste. Nicely done..

Aroma of pear melon cantaloupe with impact firstly from the pear juice and secondly from the yeast. Appears hazy amber gold with good lacing and good retention of an off white head. Taste is sweet yet balanced if pear, some acidity a little funk and tartness.
