Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Aroma has yeast funk, dusty grapes and grains, fermented stonefruits. Taste has mostly tart, unripe stonefruits. Dry, light bodied.

A-Poured from a Tired Hands growler into a wine glass. Turbid golden straw color, inch of Meringe like head
S- You get a lot of earthiness, Wet Hay, Mustiness,Some tropical Guava notes as well
T- Everything you get from the smell,big amount of earthyness and tropical fruit. Ends with a zippy Lemon like tartness that begs you to take another sip.
M-Medium bodied, For such a low ABV the cereal grains play a big part in making this beer feel substantial, pretty low carbed.
O- This is maybe my favorite saison. There is a lot to like here. This beer is flawless and has a brightness to it that makes it infinately drinkable. I'm excited to try this one when it's being fermented in the Foeders at the new facility. Seek this out and cherish it

On tap at Tired Hands

A- pours a completely murky golden yellow color with no head and just a hint of quick settling lace. I don't think nice ever seen a saison this murky before, looks like orange juice and milk

S- aromas of earth and hay with lemon peel, a hint of tropical fruit

T- flavors of wet hay mix with some fruity notes of mango and guava, a hint of funk, finishes with a hint of lemon tartness with lingers of earth and must

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slick mouthfeel and finish, could use alittle more carbonation

O- as murky as this was, I'm wondering if it was from the bottom of the barrel, as carbonation felt very low as well. Great flavor, but everything else seemed a bit off
