Tap at 44 Stone - Columbia, MO

A - Poured a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It had nice retention and left thing trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fairly yeasty and spicy with notes of cherry.

T- Cherry flavor comes through with some tartness. Nice spicy saison-like flavors. Good yeasty bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty good saison. I like what I've had from 4 Hands so far.

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, FTowne!

Slightly hazed golden with a very small white head. Not a lot of visible carbonation, especially for the style. Small dots left down the glass.

Mild aroma of saison yeast with just a hint of straw, dried grass, and very mild cherry, if I search for it.

As with the aroma, the flavors are all nice, but quite mild. Saison yeast, dried grasses and hay, and just a hint of fruit. Nothing off, but a fairly boring take on a fruited saison with Brett.

Thin-medium bodied with low carbonation.

Very drinkable beer on a scorching hot day, but relatively boring, all things considered. Perhaps I should have sat on this one for a while and let the Brett do some more work. Regardless, it's tasty in this heat.

pours a slightly reddish golden orange. light head, quickly dissipates. light ring around the glass.

light cherry with a more dominating funky yeast and malt.

very funky, almost a sharp wet fresh funk, wet hay, fresh grass. cherry is very faint, wish there was more.

mild carbonation, light mouthfeel.

not bad but a little too funky with a very faint cherry. it adds some element but needs more, much more.

Review from notes. On tap at 4 hands.

Slightly hazed straw colored body with a light pinkish hue. The head was thin but tall.

Smells like grass, phenols, and a little clove. The cherry is not perceptible.

It has a little funk and banana up front, then grass. Tart cherry only shows up in the finish and its faint.

Mouthfeel is a little thin but carbonated well.

I liked this but was hoping the cherries popped a little more.

Looks good, a little watery maybe, slightly thin and very light. Decent small little head.

Smell is strong cherry, nice earthy aroma, kind of lightly spiced. Pretty pleasant.

Taste follows the nose. Cherry, earthiness, spice, yeast, a hint of hops. The cherry is lightly tart, which I like a lot. Really nicely balanced. Slightly crisp bitterness going down.

Mouthfeel was good, not too thin. Good carbonation, went down nicely.

Overall another solid offering from 4 Hands. I liked this more than the pyrus, but less than the prussia. Excited to see what they do next!
