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.

Medium body and carbonation.

daknole (9096) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2013
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.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV, Day 3. Thanks to jcnielsen! Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with an off white head. Big apple/pear, cinnamon honey, fairly spicy, a bit herbal aroma. Tangy white fruity, cinnamon, nutmeg, a bit peppery, pear, slightly juicy, a bit floral bitter, fairly dry flavor. I’m not that into it but it is clean and fun.

Dogbrick (8107) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Sample at Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar. Pours a hazy copper-gold color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sage, fruit and yeast. Medium to full body with an herbal character and flavors of fruity yeast and malt. The finish is fruity up front with a white sage aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy apple cider colored with minimal head. Nose is pear, mild spice, tastes of a slightly malty peary with some well integrated spice. Solid.

crossovert (7385) - Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2013
First commercial Penrose beer. This one is full-on herbs. The white sage is huge in the flavor and aroma, the pear is also quite noticeable. It is very perry-like.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near clear light copperish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has sweet grains and sage with a good amount of sweet pears underlying. Flavor starts with sage and sweet grains and is joined by sweet pears that are slightly tart.

phaleslu (6427) - 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.
