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.

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 (2847) - 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 (1694) - 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

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.

jbrana (351) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
