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. TheBeerGod (6254) - Newport News, Virginia, 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. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a slightly pinkish golden color with white head. Sage, herbs, pear, pink lemonade aromas. Herbs, pear, fruity, spicy flavors. Really fun beer to try. cubs (10693) - 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.

Pours hazy dull orange with a dense off-white head. The aroma really shows the white sage and pear - very clean and natural. There are also some banana esters, thick chewy malt, red apples, earthiness and the Belgian yeast slant. It has a medium / full body that has some heft, but not too weighty and there is light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with fruity and caramel malt, pepper, pear, sage and a fruit juice aspect. The finish is dry, fruity and spicy. Really nice and does a good job of hiding the 9.3% abv. Travlr (25854) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Draft. Hazy golden amber color, medium white head. Aroma of big herbal sage and slightly funky perry. Taste is funky and spicy fruit, peppery dust. Delicious. gregwilsonstl (2612) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Really unexpected flavor. It says it’s sage. Citrus. Bitter. Quite tart....somewhat sour. Dogbrick (13554) - 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. maus10 (43) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
The aroma is sweet and smells of pear juice and the pear skin. There's a tartness to it that is almost citrusy appleish.
You definitely taste the pear, with a bit of dry grapefruit tart and bitterness. The white sage is very subtle.
Overall this beer is outstanding and has me hoping its a sign of things to come for both Penrose and Perennial!
