On tap at Tired Hands

A- pours completely hazy golden yellow, one of the murkiest beers I've every had of this color. Small creamy white head that has good retention, leaving behind some good lace

S- earthy and musty, fresh fall leaves, oaky vanilla, white grape, and tropical fruit

T- sweet tropical fruity pineapple up front leads to traditional saison flavors with earthy and hay flavors. White grape, complimented by oaky vanilla mid-palate, eventually finishing with a trace of Brett funk that leaves a slight tartness on the palate

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slightly creamy mouthfeel and smooth - slick finish

O - nice bland of oak with a touch of funk, very drinkable and abv is hidden well

On tap at TH.

Cloudy and opaque golden-yellow liquid, like a glass of grapefruit juice, with a small, creamy, white head; moderate retention and lacing. Dank aroma, earthy funk, herbal, fruit salad. Lots going on on the palate, ripe fruits--grapefruit, apple, white grape--earthy, with light spicy and funky notes. Light-medium body, lower carb, smooth mouthfeel, nice complexity.

Tired Hands saisons, one of life's true pleasures. thank you for these, TH, signed a grateful cavedave.

Dark gold, supremely cloudy almost turbid, few bubbles yet there is a stiff topper that lazes down to nice cap for the ride, and leaves stupid lace upon glass.

Medium strength aroma, but nicely composed of citrus, straw, earth, pepper, some nice fruitiness underneath, and righteous funk that plays big but doesn't overpower.

All the flavors of the nose here, but less straw in the taste, more funk, blessedly so. all the goodness that can be gotten from this wonderfully crafted beer is bright and clean like spring sunshine. Such great balance and simplicity, a work of art by a master.

Low carb., easy drinking, highly refreshing, interesting, with a spice presence that never builds on palate, and a linger that stays clean as one could wish.

Another great saison from a fantastic brewery that sets its own bar so high that to stay true it must, and does, deliver works of art. Most highly recommended.
