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.

pours a clean golden yellow. light white thin fizzy head. light retention
light pear combined with a fresh funk. hint of citrus hops.
similar to nose, a well balanced pear to funk ratio. nothing over done here, just balance. white pepper and orange zest are very hidden. maybe a hint of burn in the finish.
mild to moderate carbonation, clean but dry finish
this was really good, better than prunus. i would and plan on drinking more of this.

The actual name is Pyrus, not Pryus. Almost couldn't find it on the site.
Poured from the bottle a very lightly-hazed deep gold color with two fingers of bright white head. Very little lacing.
Aroma of fresh pear, candy sugar, bubble gum, and a light herbal spiciness.
The taste really matched up with the aroma. Pear, bubble gum, candy sugar, herbal spices and light earthy malts. White pepper came through in the finish.
Medium bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation.
A very nice Saison from an up-and-coming local brewery. I'll be having this one again.

Pours reddish orange with a bold and thick white head that sticks for a while. Smells of lemon at the forefront with a bit of melon and banana followed by pepper and distant notes of caramel. Grainy, peppery, fruity, citrusy and a bit sour to the tongue up front. Has a slight earthiness and some barnyard funk for the follow up. Exceptionally dry and light bodied with a hint of alcohol. This is a sharp dressed beer that is ready for a warm summer night on the town.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.
Pours a traditional gorgeous, hazy golden color with some slight orange hints on the edges. Nice white slightly dense head forms to about 1.5 inches. Nice retention that slowly recedes.
Aroma is delicious and very true to style but with some nice fruit juice sweetness. Aroma of some nice funk and dry yeasty notes. Some nice pear juice notes. There is some nice grassy hop notes on the back end that lend the beer a slight Belgian IPA note.
Flavor starts off funky and fruit juicy sweet to start off. Very nice barnyard taste with some nice slight citrusy hop notes. Has a nice 4 Hands hop note to it mixed in with some nice fruit juice sweetness. Nice crisp saison notes. The yeasty notes play well with some good grain and the pear juice notes. Very nicely done.
Pretty good brew. 4 Hands is coming up quick as one of the best around St. Louis. Nice traditional Saison notes mixed in with pear notes and some slight hops.

On-tap, served in a tulip
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy, paper white cap that rises to fill the glass and falls slowly. Some spider web lacing.
The aroma is classic saison. Clean, bright spice, earthy hops, mild funk, lemons, with pear juice undertones. The pear is a little soft, but a nice addition. I don't know of any other beers using pears.
The pears come out a little more in the flavor profile, lending a soft, fruity complement to the classic saison flavors. Coriander, tangerines, grassy hops, dry hay, and a touch of bubble gum.
Clean, crisp, and sharp. Light body with strong carbonation. The finish is fairly dry with the lingering flavors of pear and spice.
This saison is welcome in my glass anytime. Sharp flavors, clean, strong elements of the style with the unique addition of pears. Well-crafted on all fronts.
