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

onceblind (8897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Aged 3.5 years. Hazy deep golden hue with a tight foamy white head. Rich eatery and fruity pear and Belgian dusty nose with a herbal undertone. Crisp bright flavor that features pear and semisweet Belgian gold malt and a funny little saison-esque yeast ester that leaves the beer herbal and dryish. Delightfully complex.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at Tap and Handle, hazy orange-brown pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big pear, peach, some white grape into some herbal, rosemary, sage notes with a hint of grass, slight orange into a bit of biscuit and bread. Taste was a mix of biscuit, bread, some herbal, grassy notes into a bit of pear, white grape, finishing herbal, slightly sweet. Pretty cool.

Pinkish cloudy light brown with a good pale head. Aroma is white sage, raspberry, hint of pear. Medium-light bodied, fruity on the palate, smooth and tasty. Taste is sage, pear, red fruits.

Sarlacc83 (2197) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Keir. Thanks! A: Cloudy browned-yellow with a huge foamy white head. Lacing. N: Pear, sage, lemon, grapefruit, grain, peppercorn, green apple, coriander, lavender, orange blossom, and funk. T: Sour, bit of sweetness, then spicy. M: Fluffy, light mouthfeel. Alcohol is not appreciable here, which is good. O: A pear saison of sorts. Theres a lot to like here, and its one of the best Perenniel beers Ive had. (And the best Penrose...by default.)

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours hazy copper gold with fine white head, settles in minutes with a bit of pillowy lace. Aroma is fruity and herbal, pear and banana, sage, fruity sweet yeast, floral esters. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front, big pear, with an herbal finish and lightly bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is mildly present in the finish, could be brought down a point or two. Moderate carbonation, medium body, lightly juicy texture, lightly dry finish.

alexsdad06 (9934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
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 (6893) - 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 (2928) - Silver Spring, Alabama, 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
