look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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

A: 3/3 - light yellow-orange coloration; little clarity (cannot read through); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge into a finger head remaining throughout the drinking

S: 8/12 - some Centennial-ish hop aromas - grapefruit, blood orange and tangerine; again, picking up on some spicy pepper, and lemon notes, likely from the saison yeast; no alcohol; no flaws

T: 15/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's a moderate citrus bitterness followed by hop flavors; typical saison characteristics then arise - lemon peel, coriander, pepper - with some honeysuckel; finishes dry and inviting; no detectable alcohol

M: 5/5 - high carbonation; moderate body; light hop oils from Centennial; super drinkable and refreshing

O: 8/10 - another high-quality saison from Tired Hands; my only complaint with so many hoppy saisons and sessionable IPAs on taste is the high similarity among their profile

TOTAL - 39/50

On tap at TH.

Hazy, pale yellow pour, topped with a creamy white head that retained well and laced the glass nicely. Typical Tired Hands attractive beer. Fresh fruity esters in the nose, underlying hints of standard saison funk, with some dank hop notes. In the taste, fresh fruit medley, melon, pear, peach, obvious but light barnyard funk, leaving no doubt that this is a saison, notes of peppery spice and honeysuckle, grassy hops. Smooth mouthfeel, crisp and clean, medium body, and highly drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

32 oz growler poured into a teku glass

A- A hazy pale yellow straw color with a two finger white head.

S- Funky, some honey, light fruits, pears, citrus, some pine.

T- Much hoppier than the nose, citrus, pear, peppercorns, some funk, piney finish, some honey. Bright, funky, hoppy, and well balanced.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A well done Saison that is well balanced. Hops and funk work well together, highly recommended.
