look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy gold, huge head.

Smell: Grassy, pears.

Taste: Starts bready, then the pears come in, giving a sweetness around the edges-more complimentary than out front. Finishes with grassy hops.

Overall: Picked up a four pack in Wiscoland. Didn't look that closely at the packaging so was not aware that it was pear-infused. It doesn't distract too much from the beer, the pear flavor is there but not overwhelming. An interesting beer.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- hazy golden brew with lots (and I mean lots) of tiny bubble rapidly rising to the top of the glass. Two fingers of fluffy pure white head. Great head retention, decent lacing.

S- well, it smells like a Czech pilsener. Spicy/floral hops. There is a light woody aroma as well.

T- light malts, herbal hops. The pear is present in nectar-like fashion. It tastes sweet.

M- starts out light, but towards the end it feels more medium bodied. Gentle carbonation.

O- it's weird. Not something I would drink more than one of.
