Poured into a Perennial snifter from a 750ml bottle.
Pours a nice hazy pal golden straw color. There is a nice half inch white head that rises up and has some medium dense bubbles. The head recedes pretty quickly.
Aroma is quite delicious. Sweet notes of pear juice start things off. Then there is some nice pear skin tartness in the nose. Mild lemony notes are also perceived in the nose. There is also some slight clove sweetness that is very nice. Some mild yeasty esters are perceived. The back end of the brew has some grassy and earthy tones that are very faint on the back end.
The flavor is pretty delicious. Starts off with notes of sweet ripened pear followed quickly by a nice clean and tart pear skin note. The pear notes really are exquisite. Great fruit juice sweetness with some nice yeasty sweetness and esters. Notes of mild clove blended in very well with the tartness. Slight lemony notes. Nice earthy and grainy Belgian notes after the pear sweetness and tart notes. Nice notes of spice typical of most Belgian Golden ales. The sharp tartness comes back up into the mix near the back end of the brew. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp. Medium carbonation for a Belgian but still enough to clean the palette.
Overall, great job by Perennial. Good use of pear and the earthiness and dry spice of the sage. There are some nice cider notes to the brew as well because of the Belgian yeast.

a well made beer, but just not a flavor profile that really gets me off. never had a pear beer i really cared for until the dogfish head pils, the pears here are way too sweet, and not totally congruent with the sage, which is subtle compared to others like cellar door, but still quite prominent. honey colored and mostly clear, not a huge head, and certainly a short lived one. lots of left over sugar from the grain bill, which maybe puts a little more body in this than we need, especially the sweetness imparted by the pairs, its close to overkill. i like the belgian yeast though, but maybe it needed more time fermenting, i dont know. clean finish though despite the sugar, the pears outlast the sage, and its a little confusing really, but not at all unpleasant, just not my personal favorite. this is the first beer from perennial that hasnt absolutely blown me away, so i guess they were due for an average brew. this may hit the nail on the head for some out there, but it was a little messy for me. a little more alcohol than i need in the style too, but it is reasonably well covered up.
