I had this on tap at Tired Hands served chilled.

The color is golden with hazed look and thick white head with fine bead. The smell is yeast dominant until it warms slightly with hops emerging and some tropical aroma with yeast adding a phenolic edge and hops have slight floral accent. The feel is semi-dry with bitterness above average with slight peppery grassiness and mild astringency in the feel, but finish is more dry.

The flavor is good with dank hop aspect, moderate tropical fruit however the yeast gives a slight medicinal edge with raw hop flavors fighting for dominance. The tropical fruity taste increases from the first sip but the plastic note stands out to me. Overall a good beer, but I think the yeast detracts slightly from the hop juiciness it could have, decent but not the best i have had from Tired hands

On tap at TH.

Golden-orange pour, hazy, with a finger of white head, nice soapy lacing. Aroma was juicy with citrus and fruity esters, floral, bready yeast. Pretty fruity in the taste too, with some tropical fruit and citrus notes that eventually settled into a candied lemon rind flavor, with a hint of grassiness. Came off more an APA or even IPA than saison, thanks to my good friend Mr. Simcoe, most likely. Bitterness was moderate to low. Mouthfeel was crisp and clean, body medium, carbonation appropriate. Drinkable and enjoyable.
