I'm not a big saison fan, but this stuff was good. Great idea with the hops!

Poured from a bottle into a Tired Hands teku. Bought today at the brewpub.

A - Pours a cloudy orange/straw color with a 2 finger bright white head. Good retention, eventually receding to a collar that leaves wispy patches of lace.

S - Aroma is full of bright, pungent hops... Meyer lemons, pineapple, white grape, orange, and some dank, piney notes. Some bready, peppery saison yeast lying underneath.

T/M - Full of tropical/citrus hops up front, with big pineapple, mango, slight lemon pith, tangerine, grape skin, and some peach. Some tangy, peppery saison character comes out in the middle and through the finish, with lingering fruity hops, slight pine, and moderate bitterness all melding together in great harmony. Creamy with a soft, rolling carbonation, finishes quite dry.

O - This is one damn amazing hoppy saison... In fact, as far as hoppy saisons go, this is probably my favorite. I love that Tired Hands brews and releases bottles of this every few months, it's certainly worthy of the bottle treatment. Just terrific, juicy stuff.

32 oz growler filled 11/28 poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden orange with a twp finger white head.

S- Pineapple, earth/musty funk, bready pale malts.

T- Tropical fruits, citrus, paired with a nice funky/earthy finish and a nice bready malt backbone.

M- Smooth, crisp, nice carbonation, medium body.

O- A nice twist on a Saison, truly a great beer. Looks like this is one Tired Hands will keep rotating into the line up and that's a good thing!

Served on-tap at the brewpub. Pours golden yellow with a one and a half finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smells of lots of piney and citric hops, bit of fresh cut grass, some light musty funk, dash of herbs and some bready pale grain. Taste starts off with lots of hop bitterness up front with the saison core coming in after the bitterness dies down to even things out. The grains come in last, helping to keep it in check. Bitter, slightly chewy feel with some light must mixed in.

Overall a very nice hoppy saison. It has all of the intended flavors and it is very drinkable, both of which make it a joy to consume. Glad I could finally try this one.
