look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear light yellow in color. Just the slightest haze. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head that slowly reduces to a fairly thick surface coating. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma starts off sweet and slightly floral. Then there are some light tropical notes before a good dose of sulfur stink on the back end.

T: Taste is better. More refined. Starts off with a mild lemon tartness mixed with a mild sweetness. Light citrus notes, green apple, and just a hint of funk. Lemon-lime soda. Very little malt character. Thankfully the sulfur doesn't come through on the flavor.

M: Lighter bodied. Medium carbonation. Light tartness. Very little bitterness.

O: I've had many of Half Acre's Saisons and I can say it appears Tired Hands has helped HA turn the corner on the style. HA is still pulling some of that sulfur, but this beer is much more nuanced than HA's earlier attempts. In the end, this is not a bad beer at all. Easy to drink. Pleasant on a warm Chicago day.
