adnielsen (10580) - 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. Im not that into it but it is clean and fun.

vyvvy (6124) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2013
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.

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.

Really unexpected flavor. It says its sage. Citrus. Bitter. Quite tart....somewhat sour.

Dogbrick (12347) - 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.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Perennial during their second anniversary event. This came with a one finger head and was honey gold and somewhat hazy. Soft fruit in the aroma is delicate and interesting. I am not sure that the style is correct here and this could be a saison. I did taste the pears and there was more complex fruit from the yeast. Very soft hops and nice carbonation felt right in the mouth. Malts were light as was the earth. The malts were pale. This was nice and had enough complexity to keep me interested and enough flavor to keep my taste buds happy.
