The nose is all Brett funk. Really grassy. Body is very light and clean. The carb level is fairly low for this style. The meyer lemon is the star. The Brett funk is a bit repressed by the juicy lemon/orange flavor. Really interesting beer with good flavor. I'd like a bit more from the Brett in the flavor and a higher carb level.

750 ml bottle poured into a flute

A- A slightly hazy golden straw color with a two finger white head.

S- Lemon rinds, some tart lemons, wheat, touch of oats, barnyard funk, some oak.

T- Tart lemons, lemon rinds, hints of pears, wheat, oak, touch of funk, nicely balanced.

M- Smooth, crisp, dry, light to medium body.

O- Another excellent saison from Tired Hands. Lemons are kind of mild but still worth seeking out if you enjoy Tired Hands' saisons.
