Amber tinted gold in color. The head is minimal and nearly entirely disappates. Brilliant clarity. The nose is some sort of tropical fruit. It's a bit faint to be honest. The mouthfeel is dry and crisp. The tropical fruit flavor is integrated well with the base malt and hops. There is a bit of a tingling sensation on my tongue after the finish. Light and refreshing.

Poured from the bottle a cloudy straw color with one finger of bright white head.

Bright aroma of tropical fruit, spices and earthy yeast.

Tasted of lemon and green apple with a bit of tartness along with saltine cracker.

Medium bodied and crisp with a moderate carbonation.

An enjoyable Saison from the collaboration of 2nd Shift and 4 Hands. Good but not quite great.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick foamy head that fades to some lacing.
S: Aroma of fruit, some citrus with a bit of spice and grain.

T: Taste is a bit tart with fruit, citrus, mild malt sweetness with a bit of spice and grain. Decent bitterness with a fairly dry finish but with a lingering tart.

F:Moderate body, smooth with a decent balance.

O: Pleasant beer for the style.

On tap @ 4 hands, relatively new beer from them

The beer pours a clear coppery orange with a thin halo of white head. The nose is slightly hoppy, peppery, and has a bit of yeast fruitiness (and this is dry hopped). The taste has a mild grainy sweetness upfront with a bit more yeast character in the finish. The mouthfeel is relatively light bodied, a bit grainy, mild hops (not much bitterness), and a touch of bubblegum in this finish. This is a decent, sessionable beer with lower than expected hop characteristic and decent yeast spiciness, but I'll pass in the future.
