on tap at the brewpub

Clouded golden yellow color with a two-finger crop of creamy, soapy white head. Lasting retention, sticky lacing and foamy collar.

Floral hoppy notes, touches of lemon peel and yeasty funk. Faint tartness with straw and hay.

Peppery hoppiness up front with floral hints. Citrus peel, white grapes and a soft tartness. Mellow bready backbone with wet hay and straw. Soft sweetness with a dry, tart finish.

Medium body, decent carbonation, dry and lasting on the tongue. This is a great place to start with Tired Hands beers for those who haven't experienced them before - a benchmark brew serving as a launch pad for their more inventive and creative offerings.

1-liter growler into a matching Tired Hands oversized wine glass. The brew appears a clouded yellow with a skimpy white head that collapses to a thin film atop. Some faint spotty and webby lacing effect sticks to the glass.

The aroma is fresh and grainy like wheat and cereal with some bready sweetness. A mild contrast of herbal to grassy hops is pretty heavy handed in this otherwise neutral smelling brew. As it warms up, sulfur emerges and becomes a noteable atribute to the aromatics which isn't totally enticing.

The taste is bready and cereal-like with grain. A soft touch of fresh grainy sweetness is present before plenty of grassy to hay-like bitter hopiness. A mild herbal flavor and a touch of lemon last into the aftertaste. There is no real saison yeast character present in this.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. It is a fair take on the style. Pretty easy drinking and crushable during the summer im sure but very neutral with seemingly no yeast impact which is strange.

Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy honey color capped by a creamy head of froth that leaves a nice pattern of lace

Smell: Lemongrass, barnyard and citrus

Taste: Lemongrass and barnyard tones, up front, with the citrus filling out the profile in the back; nice yeasty complexity that lingers in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Really like the combination of the classic Saison character with the Cascade hops, bringing an American twist

Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice layer of white head. The head leaves some lacing on the glass. The smell is light and full of grain, a bit pils like. The taste is light as well, lots of yeast. The pils bitterness is here as well. Just enough grain to balance it. Nice session ale. Not much spice here.
