At Fountainhead. Delightful beer. Hides the strength well. Light somewhat crisp fruity beer with a slight sour twist at the end. Serving: Tap

GothGargoyle (1421) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Pinkish cloudy light brown with a good pale head. Aroma is white sage, raspberry, hint of pear. Medium-light bodied, fruity on the palate, smooth and tasty. Taste is sage, pear, red fruits.

Sarlacc83 (950) - Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Keir. Thanks! A: Cloudy browned-yellow with a huge foamy white head. Lacing. N: Pear, sage, lemon, grapefruit, grain, peppercorn, green apple, coriander, lavender, orange blossom, and funk. T: Sour, bit of sweetness, then spicy. M: Fluffy, light mouthfeel. Alcohol is not appreciable here, which is good. O: A pear saison of sorts. There’s a lot to like here, and it’s one of the best Perenniel beers I’ve had. (And the best Penrose...by default.)

Brouwerij (943) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours hazy copper gold with fine white head, settles in minutes with a bit of pillowy lace. Aroma is fruity and herbal, pear and banana, sage, fruity sweet yeast, floral esters. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front, big pear, with an herbal finish and lightly bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is mildly present in the finish, could be brought down a point or two. Moderate carbonation, medium body, lightly juicy texture, lightly dry finish.

750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu early December 2013. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor have pear juice, doughy yeast, herbal and floral notes where the sage comes in, citrus, mild funk, sweet malty notes. Lighter bodied, with no sign of the 9.3%. Interesting beer.

PhillyCraft (3457) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Tap at Bainbridge, poured brown color with foamy head. Notes are sour fruits, Belgian yeast, pear skin, light sage if any. Thin overall. Nothing special.

MadRobin (2074) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 26, 2014
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. [Note, both the beer list at Gilly's and Perennial's website give the ABV as 8%, not 9.3. ] Cloudy amber with an off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of pear, lemon, tangerine and sage. Taste of lemon, sage, grass, roses and pear. Well, this certainly has an unusual combination of flavors. While, not unpleasant and even interesting, it's not what I'm looking for in a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (10126) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tap at Roasthouse Pub. Pours lightly hazy gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is biscuit and Pils malt, earthy hops, sage, pears, and light Acetaldehyde notes. Flavor is sweet malt, pears and sage, Acetaldehyde, vinegar spicy hops and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Draft. Cloudy straw colored, light head. Mild aroma but strong taste with sour notes and plenty of carbonation. Good strong choice

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - JAN 16, 2014
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.
