3.03/5  rDev -11.4%

A: Poured aggressively, but still resulted in very little head at all. Cloudy appearance, with a dark golden color.

S: Strong smell of saison yeast. As it warms, hints of the pear juice become far more evident. Definte sweet, Belgian scents

T: initial taste is also the most overwhelming, which is a strong flavor of yeasty Saison. As it warms the malty sugar taste arrives and it finishes with a pear juice taste that leaves as quickly and abruptly as it arrives.

M: Pretty light in body, sweet and a pretty dry with very little carbonation. Ok

O: Overall I appreciate this for it uniqueness, but it's just ok for me. I would definitely recommend letting it warm a bit before drinking.

3.53/5  rDev +3.2%

Light fizzy head, coppery orange hazy color.

Nose sweet malts, stone fruity, caramel, toffee, juicy, bit of esters and some sweet candy sugar, bit of booze.

Taste light sweet reddish malt, toasty cereal malt, light caramel, bit of stone fruity and esters, a strange spicy heat with tingly booze, light phenolic flavors coming with the sweet candi sugar. finish is a bit drier, more heat, tingly burn with little acidity and more esters and Belgian candi flavors, toffee as well.

Mouth med bod decent carb, plenty of booze.

Overall ok but not great, decent flavors that seemed to have gone a bit out of control with too big esters and phenolic flavors, although they should be there just seem a bit too much, and too boozy, just too much going on with this it wasn't really sure where it wanted to be.

4.1/5  rDev +19.9%

Aged for 1 year on my closet floor. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy amber color. Not much head.

N: Sweet malts, some pear. At this point I'm worried that the beer will be too sweet.

T/M: Some sweet malts up front. Hops and pear have faded into this really nice, tannic-tasting pear flavor, like pear peel. Boozy.

O: I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It aged really well.

A - Bright apricot body. Fine white head has ok retention and lace.

S - Great caramel malt nose with edges of blackberry cobbler and booze.

T - Lively carbonation cuts through a sweet honey opening. Rich caramel, pear, and cranberry center. Quick, dry finish.

M - Smooth, medium/full body.

O - A delicious brew. The booze will sneak up on you.
