Notes/Commercial Description:
The name Pyrus originates from the genus of the pear tree. Pyrus is our Fall and Winter saison brewed with pear juice, whole white pepper corns, and the zest of fresh oranges. Pyrus pours a hazy golden hue, with aromas of pear, citrus, and spice. A perfect compliment to seasonal fare.

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

Pours a fizzy pasty white fizzy like 1 finger head fades at a med pace at first then slows, nice lacing, very clear slight sediment haze pilsner yellow honey colored.

Nose is a typical saison, berry light funk, grainy grassy hay aromas with a bit of wheat and toasty grainy malts, light lemony aromas and lemongrass, light saison spices, a bit of bready yeasty doughy aroma, faint orange peel, very light white pepper, no pear though.

Taste starts with a semi sweet malts flavor, grainy slightly doughy malt with touch of yeasty flavor and light saison funk. Lemon zest, orange zest, lemongrass, some saison spices and hint of peppery flavor and a bit of pepper heat even. Malts also bring wheat, light grainy pilsner like, hay stalk and crushed straw dust. Some bitterness from the lemon and orange zest and light grassy lemony hops I think, and faint pear skin but not really pear juice. Finish is grainy straw hay malts and straw dust, and plenty of lemon zest and bitter slight rind with light lemony hops and light saison spices.

Mouth is med bodied, tons of effervescent carb, perhaps a bit too much.

Overall ok, nothing special, nice saison spices esp the light peppery heat, bitter rind, lots of lemony flavors, very little funk, but nice drinkable beer.
