Pennsylvania, United States
Notes: Our Salty Lemony Saison. Brewed with Pilsner malt and raw white wheat, and lightly hopped with Citra. Fermented in an oak foudre with our Magickal Saison yeast as well as our house mixed culture. Conditioned on lemons and pink sea salt, and dry hopped with Citra and Motueka. Refermented in the bottle for beautifully effervescent natural carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a tall bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear pale golden pour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Falls fast... nice ring of lacing.

S: Lemon/citrus and funk.

T.F: Tart and citrusy up front. The aging on dried lemons definitely took... funk and oak... lighter herbal notes, but mostly lemon and citrus rind. Light bodied and effervescent carbonation. A bit sticky on the tongue. Some saltiness at the finish.

O: A 1-dimensional brew for Tired Hands, but very tasty and refreshing. A great summer beer... and the lemon/saison mix works quite nicely.

A: Slightly hazed yellow gold with a medium foamy white head than fades to a persistent thin white cap with some lacing.
A: Lemon, earth and wet hay
T: Tart lemon, yeast, funky earth, touch of sea salt and oak.
M: Mouthfilling carb, soft texture, light body. Peppery, tart lemon and earth finish
O: Excellent. Light and enjoyable with layers of flavor. Saisons have been few and far between for me lately, and one as tasty as this is a powerful incentive to find more.

The genius of Tired Hands comes through. So much to this saison, that calling it Simplicity is a major understatement. The taste of this light golden brew is gentle-lemon and salt--almost a gose quality--with an ever so faint notion of oak. The hop and dry-hop process also has a light touch, giving this saison a nice little bite.
