Big thanks to FTowne for this one...
A: Pours a cloudy light yellow with a massive amount of pure white head. The foam takes quite a bit to settle and there is a ton of lacing left on the glass as it drinks.
S: The nose is light malt, wheat, bitter citrus zest, and really mild pepper. I get a bit of fresh cut grass and a bit of candy cigarettes. It smells alright, but it's pretty bitter for a saison. I wish there was a bit more pepper in the nose.
T: This beer starts out with a light malt base. The bitter citrus rind comes in next and overpowers. It's tingly and light peppered, but I don't get even a little bit of pear juice.
M: Light bodied beer. It's light and refreshing to start, gets bitter and almost astringent in the middle. The finish gets more mellow and sweet with a nice pepper kick.
O: This is a decent beer, but it's not something that I would want to drink all the time. I really wanted to love this beer (the ingredients are all right in my wheel house), but it just didn't live up to the billing. I got no pear flavors out of it and I would have loved some more pepper notes. Solid overall, but I don't know if I will be returning to this brew again.
