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.

Poured from 22oz bottle, label was stamped mid March 2014, so just about as young as can be found. Vigorous carbonation. Peppery aroma. Very forward pepper taste. Some tart sweetness (presumably from the pear), but then more pepper squeezing out siloed hay and malt flavors. A chilled subsequent pour slightly muted the pepper and elevated the malt. Unmemorable except for the pepper; not a fan.

Beautiful head that maintained. Very little lacing. Color is a pale yellow with just a hint of cloudiness. Plenty of effervescence. Not much going on at the nose, other than citrus notes.

This one had a sharp beginning and clean finish, but not much in between. Not a whole lot of body. The orange zest was very understated, and I didn't catch any pear at all. Certainly a refreshing and drinkable ale, but nothing to write home about.
