Nice, cloudy pale straw color with a decent head. Smells yeasty and spicy with faint hints of pear. Taste is smooth for the ABV, with a pleasant malt and Belgian yeast flavor. The pear from the name shows up in the finish with a surprisingly refined and bright taste. Overall a good take on the style with a nice twist.

A complex classic, this beer is a surprisingly impressive achievement from a moderately sized town in North Dakota, of all places. While the ESB is probably the best overall beer (and a great session ale), this Belgian style ale is very satisfying indeed. Good acidity; a cloudy green color. Compares well to some of the most famous Belgian style lambics and farmhouse ales.
