On tap at Tired Hands

A- pours a completely murky golden yellow color with no head and just a hint of quick settling lace. I don't think nice ever seen a saison this murky before, looks like orange juice and milk

S- aromas of earth and hay with lemon peel, a hint of tropical fruit

T- flavors of wet hay mix with some fruity notes of mango and guava, a hint of funk, finishes with a hint of lemon tartness with lingers of earth and must

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slick mouthfeel and finish, could use alittle more carbonation

O- as murky as this was, I'm wondering if it was from the bottom of the barrel, as carbonation felt very low as well. Great flavor, but everything else seemed a bit off

8 oz. pour into a tall pilsner/pokal like glass at the bar.

A nice colorful and creamy whip cream white one and a half finger head is presented that sits on a nice orb glowing lemon and opaque body. Not much to see carbonation wise, but the beer isn't completely lifeless looking or frozen. Quite attractive, like lemon meringue pie.

Soft hint of malts a bit and not much brett character. Some little light bread dough and hints of sourdough sensing quality but subtle. Spritzy carbonation and some carbon dioxide like lemon/lime accents.

Palate surprises since its a bit larger than the bouquet hints at. The first thing that strikes me is the mouthfeel. Creamy rich, dense, lush and coating. Big thick bakery bread dough on the swallow with the complimenting palate on the nose matching. Soft subtle yeast, nothing hot, some faint tropical character also.

Pretty good take on a saison, and much more easier drinking as well. Quite good.

4.03/5  rDev +1.5%

8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing/release date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - bright yellow coloration; little clarity (cannot read through); small white bubbles arise from the depths and coalesce into with a head that settles into a 2 finger head remaining throughout the imbibery

S: 9/12 - some classic Saison notes here - lemon zest, wet hay and other barynard aromas, spicy/earthy; no detectable malts or alcohol

T: 16/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's an admixture of light citrus fruit and grass that reminds me of Saison DuPont; this continues with notes of rye, wheat and Belgian pils malt and some mild alcohol; finishes very dry

M: 4/5 - high carbonation; little-to-moderate body; again, some gentle creaminess from the additional grains (rye, oats and wheat)

O: 8/10 - a really nice flagship saison that hits all the high points of the style for me - citrus, earthy/spicy, dry finish and high drinkability; it would probably score higher if there was more Brett character, but I hate dinging beers for things that are not present; highly recommended!

TOTAL - 41/50
