Thanks to sampx for this! First beer trade right here, and looking forward to trying something from 4 Hands. I love their labeling.
Pours a hazy gold color that shows off the abundant carbonation. Attractive and thick white head that drops down quickly to a thin lacing and that leaves a good amount of head behind.
The aroma is exactly what one expects from a saison. Herbal, fresh, lightly fruity, some peppery notes in there too. Pear is nothing more than a faint note of dry fruitiness in the background. Very decent Saison aroma, though I do wish the pear would have a bit more dominance.
Taste echoes the aroma, with notes of fresh sagebrush, white pepper, honeydew, and grape skins. Mild bitterness, and a dry, fruity finish and aftertaste. Medium body, crisp carbonation, fluffy, and ultimately refreshing.
This is really good beer. The one thing that makes this beer less than perfect is the fact that the pear juice is lost in this beer. I mean, it's fine that the pear is subtle, but if you are calling the beer Pyrus Saison, it should have a bigger character of pear. Overall though, really liked this beer and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good Saison.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Very pale yellow and hazy body. Huge white head. Pillow of foam and nice lacing.
Smell - A bit of fruit. Kinda apple-y. A ton of pale malt, at least relative to the other aromas. A bit of pepper.
Taste - Sweet malts. Some light apple fruit flavors. Grainy. More malts. Much more pepper in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Overcarbonated.
Overall - Kinda dull, but the flavors are ok.
