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. (538 characters)

The best beer Tired Hands has brewed. To me it's the benchmark for hoppy saisons. (82 characters)

A - Two plus fingers worth of rich creamy airy whipped snow white froth... Decent retention gives way to a thick lush veil lacing... The color is a hazed pale lemony gold... Still with no discernible carbonation... Sheets of lacing cling to the sides of the glass...

S - A very exquisite and inviting aroma... Competing for top billing are a dank hop presence and the traditional grassy / Belgian yeast notes... Next are notes of lemon zest and faint pineapple are next... Earthy undertones of fresh cut grass... A very light spicy component lingers as well... Lots of depth and complexity...

T - The traditional Saison components take center stage on the palate... Belgian yeast... Fresh grass... A light spice character... The hops are next and take a mix of earthy and lemony... There is a faint yet undeniable oak component that lingers a bit beneath the surface..

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Much more carbonation than expected... Dry throughout... A bit of a chalky finish...

D - Another solid Saison from the fine folks at Tired Hands... However it didn't leave up to my expectations which may be artificially inflated for this brewery... The appearance and aroma are exceptional, but the palate and mouthfeel fall a bit short... Still a must try for fans of both the brewery and style... By no means will I have any trouble making this growler disappear... (1,413 characters)
