4.05/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour a pale golden-abed with big tri-finger head of white carbonation. Pleasant lattice lacing.

Nose is toasty, malty and grainy -- faithful to the pilsner style, but with a slight and subtle tinge of fruit.

Taste is surprising! There's definitely a pilsner foundation here, but the addition of pear tea and pear juice adds an entirely new dimension. It's a subtle fruit infusion, but wow does this really work well! Wonderful and flavorful, this is one I'll definitely revisit.
