On-tap at Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, PA.

Orange/brown in color with small white head. Great aroma of plums, grapes, and lightly toasted malts. Light citrus kick from the hops. Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish. A lot going on, making for a complex yet subtle beer. I really enjoyed this one. Possibly my favorite of the six beers I tried at Tired Hands.

32oz growler poured into a Tired Hands teku glass

Appearance: Pours a dark orange/brown color with a finger of an off white head. Body is lightly hazy. Almost looks like iced tea.

Smell: Peppery saison yeast, nectarine, earth, light funk

Taste: Strong tartness, earthy, saison yeast, slight breadiness. Mild lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, somewhat slick feel. Medium/low carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Not one of their best, but still a decent saison from TH.

From 10/04/14 notes, on tap at the brewpub in Ardmore.

Pours a deep amber color, one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Musty notes, dirt smell and taste, rye, wheat, citrus hops, and earthy notes. Medium body and low carbonation.

Overall a rare miss, musty and earthy, not great in my opinion. Wouldn't seek it again considering they have much better beers on tap.
