Thanks to JLindros for sharing this growler.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a super straw hazy hue with a thin head that leaves a light halo.

S - Aromas of burnt rubber, Nice citrus notes, faint phenolic. Strong wheat notes, saison as well.

T - Taste is wheat saison, light citrus notes, light brett funk. Taste is a bit thin. Very pleasant, light grains, refreshing.

M - Mouthfeel is somewhat thin, rather watery.

O - Overall this beer had light characteristics. Rather soft.

Growler thanks to evahflow (reddit), shared with rudzud and threelions

No real head, little spotty lacing, murky yellowy orange color.

Nose great saison, funky Belgian saison, hint phenols, light esters, little fruity and nice citrus rind, grainy bready wheat like saison base, stone and citrus fruit notes, little mango tangerine thing.

Taste grainy wheat malts, dry as Hell, toasted wheat, into mild funk, saison funk with hint fruity note and spices, into light phenols and nice esters, stone fruits, etc. Mild grassy bitterness and hops. Finish is drier and a bit sticky, more mild saison funk and saison.

Mouth is med bod, little gritty and dry, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice. Not phenomenal, but quite nice, good Belgian saison funk without Brett, nice mild citrusy notes and phenols, esters, etc.

On tap at TH.

Golden-colored pour, with a small white head that retained well and dotted the glass with lacing. Funky aroma, composted citrus rind, wet grass. In the taste, a good brett-y funk, balanced with zesty citrus hops and peppery spice, with a crackery malt base. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel, overall just another nice saison from Tired Hands.
