3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at P house, hazy, murky golden color with thin white head, not much lacing. Aromas of pear, belgian spice, pepper, hops, fruity malts and more. Flavor is a lot of the same with a juicy finish and lots of fruity belgian notes. Sessionable, good bite. This one should be a year round offering.
