3.94/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing but released date on Sun., 04/13/2014, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - light yellow-orange coloration; little clarity (cannot read through); small white bubbles coming off the bottom of the glass and emerge into a finger head remaining throughout the drinking

S: 8/12 - some typical Galaxy hop aromas - pineapple, peach, sauvignon blanc grapes; also picking up on some spicy pepper, and lemon notes, likely from the saison yeast; no alcohol; no flaws

T: 15/20 - in the front of the mouth, there's bright tropical and citrus flavors; typical saison characteristics then arise - lemon peel, coriander, pepper; finishes dry and inviting; no detectable alcohol

M: 5/5 - high carbonation; moderate body; moderate hop oils from Galaxy; super drinkable and refreshing

O: 8/10 - I was really looking forward to trying Second Level (all-Galaxy IPA) after being blown away by First Level, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this on tap; another highly drinkable saison but personally, I would have liked the Galaxy notes to be more intense

TOTAL - 40/50

3.77/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy light yellow with less than a finger of a white foamy head. Body is super hazy to the point of being almost opaque.

Smell: White grapefruit, floral, grassy, some light apricot/peach.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, bitter grapefruit, yeasty spice, pepper, fresh cut grass.

Mouthfeel: Lighter medium bodied, low-ish carbonation. Super dry with a moderate lingering bitterness.

Overall: Another good one from Tired Hands. Not their best saison, but still worth a try.
