On tap at the Fermentaria, and subsequent growlers.
Top 5 TH beer for me.

Light salmon-pink pour, cloudy, small white head that retained as a tiny collar. The smell on this is essentially full-blown kriek: funky, cherries, cobwebs, earth. In the taste, light toasted malts, tart cherries, earth saison funk, mild fruity sweetness. This was better than pretty much any American "kriek" I've had, without even claiming to be one...obviously this is still technically a saison and not a lambic. Dat aroma doe. Crisp mouthfeel, with an appropriately moderate carbonation, and dry finish. GREAT.

Served on tap. Reddish-pink colored body, soft slightly off-white/pink-ish hued head. Aromas are bright cherries, funk, tartness and some wheat. Flavor is a blast of sour cherries, funky backbone and a clean crisp finish. This is bursting with fruit, I love it. Really wish this one was available to go...

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Blue Session. Hazy orange reddish color. Aroma is fruity with blood orange notes and light yeast funk. Taste is tart, fruity, mineral and salty with some damp wood barrel notes.

On draft at the Fermentaria.

A: An opaque, hazy pink/orange. Very interesting color. Bubbly head that dissipates quickly.
S: Musty and pungent.
T: Tart and lively. Nice initial cheek pull. Hints of cherry that aren't overwhelming with some earthiness.
F: Effervescent and fun.
O: Another great fruit saison from Tired Hands. Really enjoyable.
