Wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. I dig the saisons coming out of TH, but rarely think to myself: yeah, that was worth the price of entry. And at $25 a bottle, I fully expected the price to quality ratio to be horrible with this one. Man was I wrong. This is a quality bottle. Not $25 worth in quality given other breweries who produce equally killer beers at much lower price points, but no serious butt hurt dropping the dough on this one.

Saison feels like a stretch. This ventures into AWA territory, with perfect soft, and clean acidity (not talking bad AWA with rip roaring ethyl acetate/acetic acid issues, nor are we talking brett driven).

The mango is there, but in the background. Comes out in the long finish, and lingers for a bit. A touch of sweetness helps with the acidity.

Very nice beer. TH has a winner with this one, if they choose to make it a regular offering.

Pint at Fermentaria. Normal hazy yellow from Tired Hands, smells sour, lemons, mild funk, some oak, mango, wheat. Sour lemons, some mangos, wheat, some nice funk, wheat, some oak. Mangos aren't in your face, lives up the quality of their other fruits saisons.

Bright golden yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Notes of underripe mango, tart lemons, light funk and oak. Crisp, lighter medium body, soft on the pallete, leaves a drying tart finish. Overall a very interesting sour take on the style.
