4.48/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange body with a darker tinge. Grapefruit juice colored. Hazy. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Ah, nice. Grapefruit. White wine barrel. Oak. Grainy malt. Some grape fruitiness in the back end.

Taste - Pleasantly tart. Less intense on the citrus up front. Grape flavor up front, but only distinguishes itself from the wine barrel with a bit of sweetness. Wine flavor. Oaky. Grapefruit citrus comes back in the end.

Mouthfeel - Nice sourness. Medium light. Well carbonated.

Overall - This is the best beer of the night so far. Great combination of barrel, citrus, and grapes.

Wow! Perfect amount of tartness with a strong,soft grape undertone. Directly followed by a refreshing,crisp,and extremely balanced mouthfeel. The finish, again with more of that grape softness,some slight oak, and with just a very clean tasting flavor. A little lingering tartness adds some complexity. Really leaves you wanting more.
Can only imagine how this will be in a year or so as long as the grape holds up.
Having had many offerings from Jean and the boys at Tired Hands, this has to be one of, if not the best farmhouse saison's they have done!! Simply put...Delicious!

4.4/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle served in a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a bright copper orange color with 1 finger of a white head with nice retention and lacing. Body is slightly hazy with a good amount of visible carbonation and some light fine sediment

Smell: Fresh pressed grapes, lactic tartness, oak, very light funk, slight sweetness.

Taste: Starts with a nice clean tartness followed by similar notes as the aroma. Lots of a grape, oak, light brett presence, bready malt and a some mild residual sugary sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a very soft creamy mouthfeel and medium levels of fine, gentle carbonation. Finishes tart and mostly dry, but with a light sweetness. Basically about as close to perfect as possible

Overall: Another amazing beer from Tired Hands, and I think it could improve even more with some age.

Bottle from TH.

Poured into a TH 10oz. stem, looks like honey in a glass, slightly cloudy, topped with a beautiful cap of cottony snow white head, fed by some very active carbonation, bubbling from the bottom of the glass; the head retains well, lacing the glass brilliantly. Crisp, clean aroma, white grapes, happily tart, nice funky brett notes, and some light sugary sweetness. Fresh grapes in the taste, perfectly tart, not at all overbearing, some marmalade sweetness, funky yeast, distant bready malts. Easily a perfect 5.0 rating for mouthfeel. It's so perfectly balanced, that I just can't imagine anything better. Light-medium body, crisp mouthfeel, perky carbonation, thin vinous film left in the mouth, probably mostly from my active salival glands. Overall, this has got to be one of the best things TH has bottled to date, if not the best.
