La Bonet with Pears.
poured 500ml bottle into thin wine glass.

A - Pours hazy, deep straw yellow with a nice 2 finger white head. Retention is excellent and there is plenty of lacing all over the glass.

S - Aromas of citrus, lemon/lime, and floral notes. The sweet pear fills in nicely and there is some grassy/earthy notes followed by hints of spice and funk.

T - Quite citrusy, with lemons, limes, and a nice pear flavor. Floral and earthy along with grassy notes fill in with a bready or cracker like malt. Just a bit of spice and funk on the finish.

M - Light and crisp with fantastic carbonation. Quite easy to drink on a hot day like today.

O - Really nice Saison and the pears work wonderfully with it.
