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.

Forgot that I also had picked this up recently. Was happy to see it upon pulling it out of the box.

Heavy citrus on this one. Lots of it. The pepper is there, but the citrus hijacks the whole ride. Not sure that I really get any pear juice off this one. Feel has a pretty full carbonation going on. At least it fills the mouth with a somewhat soft bubble. Nice drinker. Wouldn't say that it's well rounded, but it's pretty good. Especially considering the style.

Pure gold in color. A thin veil of Brussels lace at the top. It smells like sweet pears and the trademark Belgian yeast strain. The pear flavoring is very strong on the front of the palate. It slowly fades into that trademark slightly musty yeast strain. Very smooth, but the pear flavoring is overpowering.

not as good as their prunus cherry saison, I would never know this was made with pears unless the label told me so. it pours pretty yellow in color, more clear than expected, with a tall and lasting white head over an inch tall. I smell saison yeast and wheat malt, pretty straight forward, no pear or spice at all, very little funk or tart. the flavor is also fine for a normal saison, even quite good, but I cant pick out any fruit, which really hurts this beer to me, especially after how much the cherries added to its sister brew. yeast is nice though, and there is a light crackery malt body to this which lends serious drinkability. carbonated more like a soda than a beer, its a little gassy. overall a fine saison, but I wish the pears came out more. maybe on tap at the brewery is the go for this one, ill have to give that a shot next time through the city...

A: cloudy pale yellow. Visibly fizzy. Serve in a tulip with a minimal white head. Very light lacing.

S: aroma is fairly yeasty. Some good esters going on here. With a hint if pear.

T: taste is more if the same. Apple juice, pear juice, light malts, and a mild tartness. Light, simple, and very easy to drink.

M: lighter body. Heavier carbonation. Moderately prickly

O: a simple session Saison.

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.
