Very Good
Notes: Oat Saison well hopped with Citra and then conditioned atop a healthy amount of calamansi purée. Citra/Citrus fermented entirely in stainless steel.

I'm thinking Pizza Boy had a bad keg of this. So much diacetyl on the nose and palate. Hardly any saison left to speak of. I'm not really sure if I should be rating this - it's really the only issue I've ever had with a TH beer. This keg was a butter bomb for sure though, which was a big surprise given the reviews of this beer up to this point.

Tried a few Tired Hands brews on its recent invasion of Brooklyn, but this was my favorite. As hoppy saisons go, this is one of the best I've tried. The earthy spice pairs perfectly with the juicy hops and there's just enough malt backing to support the big, fruity and floral flavors.
