Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours an almost clear yellow with a white head. Lovely sweet spicy hop aroma - I bet Sorachi Ace! Medium body, sweet and fruity with a slight tartness and then a salty edge. Again these nice Sorachi Ace notes. No real bitterness. Lovely. 150812

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a hazy golden color with a finger of white head.
S: The pears really come through on this. There are lots of fruity hop aromas as well as the fruity ester qualities. A bit of pepper and some spicy notes that seem to be from the yeast. A light bread and malt aroma to round it out.
T: Mildly bitter and peppery with a ton of apples and pears. There’s some yeast and quite a few different esters and phenols going on here. Some mild tropical fruits and a pretty nice citrus hop note.
M: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
O: Really a different beer, but the pears came through nicely. I liked this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a clear gold with a foamy bright white head that sticks for a bit before leaving some decent lacing.
The smell is good. It is initially spicy, then fruity. It is very flowery as the yeast dominates, the pear is in the back ground and is a pleasant compliment to the yeast and hops.
The flavor is good. Very yeast-driven. The pear comes in underneath and provides a nice accent. A nice saison.
