This looks fun. Kept this one for a while waiting for the right moment to taste and appreciate this 500ml bottle.

A- Weak lacing. Super thin head no matter the pour. Color is not appealing: reminds me of a molson ex. Bubbles rising are nice.
S- Vinegar, Flour, Not exactly boozy but smells like some other high alcohol beers. Adjuncts.
T- Sugar. Sweet greek white wine. Cardboard. The 8% doesn't show at all.
M- Enjoyable mouthfeel. Lightly syrupy but refreshing. Real smooth.
D- Hold your nose and you can drink a few liters of this.

I've never said this yet... this might be a drain pour. I hope my bottle was tainted.. I think.
Try it if you're super daring or bored. But I wouldn't recommend this to anyone... except somebody I knew felt daring or bored with beer in general.
Too bad. It looked and sounded good.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3 says "no aroma" on the bottle. Maybe the genius behind this brilliant piece of marketing should propose to Molson to add "no taste" on their bottles! This is a pear-flavored Beer.

Appearance: Almost opaque, peachy with a faint white ring around the collar.

Smell: Unlike the publicity says, it does smell like those baby food pear purées, but with an interesting yeasty profile and a little fusel alcohol in the tail end.

Taste: Carbonation was on the lower end of the spectrum, it also tasted like baby food, fruity and not too cloying, but perhaps a little bland. Not bad, but I liked their Paula Red a lot more.

Bottle: Poured a clear light golden yellow color ale with a small bubbly head that fades way too quickly. Aroma of weak sweet malt with no pear to be noticed. Taste is also dominated by some weak sweet malt with no pear taste really noticeable. Body is way too thin with some low carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Definitely one of the worst offering from this brewer.

bouteille brune de 500ml.

c'est ma première expérience avec une bière aux poires et je dois admettre d'ambler que j'adore la poire william, couleur dorée passablement foncée, pas vraiment de mousse. nez passablement léger, bouche piquante, pas de poires, je ne l'ai goute pas. agréable tout de même mais pas au poire.

Slightly veiled golden amber color with strong subtle activity. Beige 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with weak legs.

Aromas and flavors of fruits, caramel, grains, floral and herbal spices. Smells like butterscotch. Strong sweet taste of pear and apple with minimal sharpness.

Slick medium body with faint carbonation. Medium strength and length finish, ending with a floral and noble spices feel.

Overall an average craft; faint fruity flavors and slightly unbalanced with more sugary caramel. A little flat and missing some freshness.
