Poured 12oz bottle into glass. 6%abv.

Appearance- Pours a crystal clear light yellow, with one finger white head. Active carbonation.

Smell- Bready aroma with caramel malt mixed in. The smell of fresh pears also lingers about.

Taste- It starts out with a bready malt flavor similar to an Oktoberfest with notes of caramel. This fades into the pear sweetness, much like pear juice, although the fruit qualities are more subtle. It finishes with a dry and bitter hop finish while still carrying with it bits of pear flavor.

Mouthfeel- Thin in body with lively carbonation. Quite smooth.

Overall- A great beer from DFH. Excellent drinkabilty. Although a seasonal this one would great anytime of year if it were available. Pick it up if you can find it.

Poured in Sam smith pint glass. Smell....nothing spicy hop very little smells crisp though sweet sugar up front earthy not as well and that good Czech on the back pepper spicy. Burns a bit going down. Is a good beer but a weird variation on the style. Don't really smell pear at all its very crisp a lot going on the style is supposed to be spicy and crisp and clean that's it. But a good beer over all would not get again
