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.

First commercial Penrose beer. This one is full-on herbs. The white sage is huge in the flavor and aroma, the pear is also quite noticeable. It is very perry-like.

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. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Cloudy gold pour, white head. Sage is present but subdued perfectly, the pears play well with the yeast and sage...hints of sweet and tart. Incredibly well constructed IMO. Enjoyable. DocLock (10659) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014

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. alexsdad06 (10284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
