4.25/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a medium hazy, light orange to golden color. Big head that's light and frothy and retains for days. Lacing is very good.

S- Light and mild with a slight fruity hint. Smells sort of like a hefeweizen, minus the overbearing clove scents. Just a hint of sage spiciness at the end of the scent.

T- Starts light and fruity. Pear flavor is fairly strong, but not overbearing. Little bit of yeasty flavor mixes in with the pear and grain flavors. At the end, there is a definite sage presence that lingers. Underlying the flavor during most of the drink there is a balancing bitterness that ends up warming and drying the back of the throat...hello alcohol level.

M- Highly carbonated and medium in weight. The amount of grains and yeast in the beer add a little to the weight, while the alcohol level will catch up to you fairly quickly.

Overall, a very interesting and well done take on a traditional Belgian style. The pears add a great flavor and a little change of pace. The higher level of alcohol does dry out the mouth and provide a dull bitterness throughout the drink. Still, one of the better one's I've had from Perennial.

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.

Not sure if this is a different recipe than the Penrose listing (pilot batch), although this is the bottled commercial batch released at Perennial. There are some differences...

Pours a murky orange into a tulip glass, with a finger of dense creamy foam on the surface. Retention is good and long lasting, there's ever present coverage but little in the way of lacing. A tiny bit of clinging spots after each sip.

Aroma of fresh cut pears, not sweet or overripe, but very distinct. Traces of yeast.

Natural tartness of underripe pear, initial rush of carbonation was a little harsh, but it settled down after swirling out the excess CO2 a couple times. As it warms the yeast comes to the forefront, adding some estery depth, trace bitterness and some funky graininess as well. Not sure if that's Brett yeast or not. Smoothes out towards the end of the glass.

In contrast to the Penrose pilot batch, it's way more carbonated with a more pronounced pear aroma. Better, I don't know but it bodes well for Penrose.

On-tap at Proletariat, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a thin bright white head that died down, leaving just a collar on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sage are present in the nose along with hints of peaches.
T: The taste starts out with some flavors of peaches but quickly transitions to sage, the latter of which lingers through the finish.
M: It feels just shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like an imperial version of a saison that has flavors of sage instead of spices. It's not too difficult to drink because no alcohol is detectable in the taste.
