4.14/5  rDev -4.2%

Big thanks to HanksBeard (reddit) for this rare-ish beer.

Pours no head, nooo head, hazy murky pear water colored.

Nose is amazing, mild tartness, big vinous wine barrel, tart mild lemon like, big white wine, effervescent floral fruity aromas, little grainy toasty saison coming through as the wine fades out. Touch of vanilla barrel and oak.

Taste brings more lemony tartness as first, fair vinous notes and more light white wine, nice tartness, little lemon, vanilla and buttery oak too, touch of grainy toasty malt, maybe creamy wheat. Creamy lactose like feel and funk. Finish is creamy sticky, not really dry, lingering tart lemony saison, little dry saison spices, little flemmy.

Mouth is lighter bod, very light carb.

Overall very mixed, great nose and pretty nice flavor beer, but almost no carb and a bit thin, hard to rate big despite the great characters.

Batch 4. 500 ml bottle poured into a teku glass

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow color. Pour yields less than a finger of a white head with nice retention and great lacing. Body is lightly hazy with quite a bit of visible carbonation. Looks really good.

Smell: White grape, lemon, funk, apple, solid grain backbone, very slight buttery character and a mild underlying peppery saison yeast.

Taste: Oaky white wine, wheat and other grains, decently strong lacto character, mild citrusy hops, green apple, funk, hay, saison yeast. Tart, but actual sourness is relatively low.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and medium/high carbonation. Finishes mostly dry with just a the slightest twinge of bitterness.

Overall: Tired hands knows how to do saisons and this one is no different. Well worth seeking out. Hopefully they keep cranking out more batches of this.

Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, fruit, and wine aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and wine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice wine barrel aged presence all around.
