Keg @ Moor Brewery, Bristol - Pours hazy light brown with quick disappearing head. Medium/low carbonation. Aroma - Light sour/tart, woody notes. Taste - Light sour, citrus - lemon, straw, crisp tart citrusy finish. Didn't find the pear in this one.

On-tap @ DeCicco & Sons in Armonk, NY.

Poured to the brim of a 9 oz white wine-ish type glass, the beer was served almost still (no head) with a deep amber color and excellent clarity. No lacing on the glass.

Unique aroma with its sourness in the forefront and some fruit in the background. Would be very hard to nail down pear in both the aroma and flavor but apple might be my guess if I were drinking it blind. Its flavor showcases strong tannic bitterness. The balance is most towards the yeast, with the malt and fruit playing second fiddle, in that order. Bone dry in the finish. Slight vinegar or lactic acid is also present in the flavor with a long aftertaste. It's extremely tart, I'd say it's sour, and medium-full bodied yet refreshing. Extremely soft carbonation, basically flat.

Very cool to experience my first beer from these guys. I didn't get a whole lot of pear in the beer. Truth be told, it drank more like a sparkling wine than a beer. Very unique but pretty tasty. The bottles aren't cheap, so I was happy to find it on draught, but would love to try more of their offerings in the future.

a wold ale with pears, these guys are just awesome, but the fruit here is quite mild, at least to my palate, which i suppose is preferable to the perfumey fake tasting pear that sometimes shows up in beers, but i would have liked a little more of the fruit in the flavor of this one. i get a bit of the green skins and some sweetness from the tender flesh, but not a lot of it. the base beer is great though, interesting in both grain and yeast, which is one of the things i love about loverbeer. the malt body is wheaty and it seems huge for something so delicate, protein rich and fluffy feeling to me, but with an astounding dryness in the end. lots of funk to this, but only very light acidity, mature and earthy, with some light fruity esters and a floral aspect in there as well, really interesting stuff. some pear towards the end, light citrus, and baked bread. delicious beer, a tad too subtle on the fruit, but i just had william from mikkeller and now have a very unrealistic high standard for pear based wild beer, so maybe thats not fair. old worldy and awesome, always special to have beers from these guys, even if this isnt one of my all time favorites from them...
