Poured into a Perennial snifter from a 750ml bottle.
Bottled: 9/2013

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.

Nice golden hue with plenty of haziness. There's a fingernail thin layer of off white head on top. Just a faint bit of sweet pear and light malt in the aroma. A nice sharp,crisp flavor of light Belgian candy sugar and sweet pear is prominent. The mouth is fairly crisp and bone dry.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Pours an amber body with golden hues and a two finger eggshell head that sticks around.

S - Sweet malts aromas, tart pears, a bit of white pepper, sage and a kick of Belgian yeast.

T - The pear is definitely the star. It's tart and a bit sweet. Belgian yeast comes through along with sage.

M - Medium bodied and high carbonation. A bit on the sweet side, but not cloying.

O - Instead of a Belgian Strong Ale, it's more of an Imperial Saison to me. Easily drinkable, very refreshing and has some tart goodness.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: unlike others, my beer poured a muddled cloudy mess that resembled a dirty river. There was a decent amount of head.
S: yeasty and tart, with just a hint of sage
T/M: the taste starts with a decent amount if tartness, like a Belgian. Then the pear sweetness makes a little presence, but a peppery spiciness creeps in as well. The sage is more recognizeable late in the taste when the carbonation bite subsides
O: this to me was a solid Belgian that didn't overdo the fruit and spice additions, and they provided an interesting accent, but they don't push it to greatness.
