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.

Haven't had much luck with 4 hands brewery been picking up some bottles of their amber and such and they exploded with carbonation. Thankfully this one is a tame 2013 bottle.

A - As expected a ton of carbonation but not overbearing since it's a 2013 vintage. Over an inch of head that takes forever to fade and little lace. Beer is a very hazy looking orange brown tint.
S - At first very overbearing strong Saison yeasts and peppery bite but in the glass I get more actual pear fruit and some orange peel.
T - Very nicely rounded with the flavor which I can agree it's a juicy overripe pear flavor. Yeast has calmed a bit and the white pepper still snaps with a very grassy pear skin flavor. Not bad.
M - Still very bubbly and bright but good carbonation it drinks smooth.

Overall I guess it was worth the 6 bucks for a discounted bottle of this stuff. A good tasting Saison with sharp orange peel notes and a very sweet pear flavor.

Pours an effervescent honey color with a sliver of beige head. Stays effervescent throughout, minimal head retention & lacing

S: Grassyness, orange peel, melony notes

T: White pepper, orange zest, pears & a little green melon up front & pear skin. Musty pear skins, a little white pepper & orange zest as this warms. Finishes with over-ripe pear, melons & white pepper

MF: Light/medium bodied, delicate carbonation, a little warming

A serviceable Saison, but not in my wheel house. if you like over-ripe pear, this is your beer

A: Golden orange clear with lots of carbonation, and a finger of fast fading yellow head.

S: Belgian yeasts, orange candy, caramel, a sort of strong chemical scent.

T: Belgian yeasts, orange candy, caramel, a sort of strong chemical taste. The negatives fade as this one warms to room temperature. White pepper, fruity, I suppose there is some pear but hard to distinguish it from this without knowing.

M: Medium thin, slightly syrupy body, medium high carbonation.

O: Well done brew. Got it at Whole foods in St Louis, same day (today) Aug 4th in St Louis. Glad to have found another local brewer this time through St Louis.
