4.11/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into TH stem glass. Rich three fingers of bubbly white head, tight bubbles, nice lacing on glass. Body is hazy, but a bright straw yellow color. Overall, good appearance.

The aroma is soft, but what is there is amazing. Mouthwatering juicy aromas of pears, peaches and cream, subtle hints of yogurt, vanilla, and more prominently, unripe mango. Fantastic.

The taste strikes a noticeably different chord, producing a dry, champagne-like fruitiness that carries through a grassy, Saison profile. I'm surprised this would be listed as an APA. Not quite to that style, and tastes more like their saisons might. Light flavors, not sweet at all, though has some "green" fruit characteristics.

Body is light, carbonation is mild and the finish is dry. Quite a smooth drinking experience, though probably more to do with the fact that its served from a growler.

Very happy to have a growler of this. Was a really good beer that I would drink a lot of. I polished off a growler solo, and I'm still coherent enough to write this review. I don't think they're making this again, but seriously worth it to try this.

Serving type: growler

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

Presentation: 64 oz. growler poured into a pint glass. Filled on 3/3/2013 and chilled since then. Big thanks to Centennial on getting me this gem.

Appearance: Clear light yellow in color. Not that cloudy at all. Pours a really nice light fluffy white head with good retention. Leaves a great lacing throughout.

Aroma: A pretty big fresh burst of brett upfront with some lemon zest and tart green apple. Really musty and with some great complex yeast tones.

Taste: Crisp lemon character upfront with a really aggressive and nice formed brett character. Lots of musty, barnyard tones. A touch of floral hop character as well. Really drinkable and crisp throughout. Not overly tart, but there certainly is a touch of sour in there.

Mouthfeel: Really crisp and sharply carbonated. Light bodied and refreshing.

Overall, a really tasty, drinkable funky pale ale. Almost fits more into the saison category than the pale ale category. The wild yeast is really well done and complex. Another impressive and unique beer from Tired Hands.

Serving type: growler
