look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 5/27

Pours bright gold, clear, little foam. Bubbles actively rise to the top. Apple pear nose, atwixt bready malts. Fruit more notable. Taste is a light lager, but with a fuller noteworthy fruit. Blend in nicely to contribute without being pushy. Crisp pear finish. Good carbonation. Sessionable summer alternative.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

on tap at DBB outpost

A- pours clear and bright golden-yellow color with a small fizzy white head that reduces, leaving only a small ring around the glass

S- faint toasted malt with a light fruit sweetness

T- crisp lightly toasted malt mixes with a subtle sweetness of pear and sugarcane, slightly grainy finish with more subtle sweetness on the linger

M- medium-light bod with medium prickly carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish, drinkability is thirst quenching

O- this beer is so easy to drink and the sweetness of the pear makes it go down very quickly. This would be a great option for summer and camping season

On tap at Rustico Ballston. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a clear light golden color with a nice white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose has subtle pear and a very, very light sugary tartness. Grain behind that. Flavor was smooth with mild fruit and a nice light maltiness in the background. Light body with good carbonation. Very refreshing.

Growler filled at the outpost on 12/22/13, poured into a devils backbone pint glass

A: hazy, yellow beer. Looks to have good carbonation, big head that went to nothing quickly

S: apples, pear, white wine grape, sweet breadlines

T: sweet apples and pears. Extremely clean

M: medium body

Interesting beer... Mix of beer, white wine, and apple cider.
