Poured from a Tired hands growler into a Tired Hands Saison glass. Also drank plenty of this on tap while at Tired Hands.

A- Murky Reddish Brown with a egg shell head. You get about a finger of head that goes away fairly quick and leaves a nice lacing. Very different for a saison.

S-I get malts at first, a nice breadyness, Then the Nelson Sauvin pops out and dominates the smell from there on out. I get a lot of Pineapple sweetness, Berries, Dry White wine, Juicyness.A Tiny bit of pine and a little bit of saison yeast smell as well. Smells amazing

T- Berries, Pineapple, pine, White wine, a bit of pepper maybe from the Rye it was brewed with.

M- Very different mouth feel here, medium bodied, it feels as murky as it looks if that makes sense. Juicy with a Bit of bitterness and dryness on the finish. Maybe too drinkable

O- I checked out previous reviews and I guess this one was made once or twice before with what im assuming are different recipes. That may explain the pedestrian score this beer has. This has obviously changed as this beer is brewed now with Rye, Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe and has changed for the better. I love this beer its dangerously drinkable and once I drank it more I wanted more. Tired Hands really knocked it out of the park with this one.
