big bottle into tulip. roughly two months old according to the bottle shop.

A: slightly opaque pour. head is bright white and bubbly. good retention, limited lacing.

S: smells slightly sour. smells a lot like pears. slightly rich, but smells fuller than what the abv states.

T: tastes a lot like sage. virtually no bitterness. slightly sweet, slightly sour finish. a bit unpleasant imo. just lacking in body and appeal.

M: moderate to full body. bottle conditioned but not effervescent.

D: a big time pass. just nothing outrageous and for the price of bottle it is not worth it. try some other stuff perhaps, but not worth spending the money on.

Nice golden hue with plenty of haziness. There's a fingernail thin layer of off white head on top. Just a faint bit of sweet pear and light malt in the aroma. A nice sharp,crisp flavor of light Belgian candy sugar and sweet pear is prominent. The mouth is fairly crisp and bone dry.

Not sure if this is a different recipe than the Penrose listing (pilot batch), although this is the bottled commercial batch released at Perennial. There are some differences...

Pours a murky orange into a tulip glass, with a finger of dense creamy foam on the surface. Retention is good and long lasting, there's ever present coverage but little in the way of lacing. A tiny bit of clinging spots after each sip.

Aroma of fresh cut pears, not sweet or overripe, but very distinct. Traces of yeast.

Natural tartness of underripe pear, initial rush of carbonation was a little harsh, but it settled down after swirling out the excess CO2 a couple times. As it warms the yeast comes to the forefront, adding some estery depth, trace bitterness and some funky graininess as well. Not sure if that's Brett yeast or not. Smoothes out towards the end of the glass.

In contrast to the Penrose pilot batch, it's way more carbonated with a more pronounced pear aroma. Better, I don't know but it bodes well for Penrose.

On-tap at Proletariat, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a thin bright white head that died down, leaving just a collar on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sage are present in the nose along with hints of peaches.
T: The taste starts out with some flavors of peaches but quickly transitions to sage, the latter of which lingers through the finish.
M: It feels just shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like an imperial version of a saison that has flavors of sage instead of spices. It's not too difficult to drink because no alcohol is detectable in the taste.
