On tap at the Fermentaria.

Yellow-orange with a sticky white head.

Sour lemon and some funkiness on the nose.

Tired Hands saisons are typically too sour for me, but this one is balanced nicely by the tea and honey. Starts with lemon and barnyard before tapering into honey, bread crust, and lightly sweet tea.

Mouthfeel is medium, but creamier than the average saison thanks to the tea on the backend. Probably the most I've enjoyed a Tired Hands saison (I love TH but prefer their IPAs).

Interesting stuff.

A: Pours a yellow amber color with a finger of head. Good chunky lacing on the glass present.

S: Light Saison aroma - spices and citrus with a hint of hops.

T: Quality flavor - more farm spicing, slight sweetness from the honey, hops and sharp flavors are milder than some of their other Saisons.

M: Light and sessionable.

O: Great brew for a long haul on summer day - depth of flavor but won't set you back too much.

I had this on tap at the pub in Ardmore, served chilled in a glass.

The color is deep amber with golden hued accent and mild haze with thick cap of white with very fine bead and ringlets of lace collect. The smell has a good amount of yeast aromatics some funk with the brett influence pretty high and herbal notes from hops or tea present. The feel is good with some mild bitterness and somewhat funky yeast in the feel with dry very highly carbonated finish.

The grisette as it it described has the additional flavor attributes of honeybush and rooibos teas as well as honey which seems to come through more in the feel since the brett quality is pretty dominant and the light malt flavors really support the flavor of the hops with somewhat bitter flavor that lingers. This is a refreshing and tasty drinkable belgian style ale, very flavorful and worth trying. I understand the brewed this before, but this fresh batch is my first taste of this beer.

From 07/13/13 notes. Had on tap at the brewpub in Ardmore, PA.

a - Pours a bright medium yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of herbal notes, floral notes, earthy malts, spice, yeast, citrus hops, light fruits, tiny bit of funk, and some bready malts. Nice nose, some definite floral/herbal stuff going on with the tea.

t - Tastes of floral hops, citrus hops, oranges, lemon zest, earthy notes, herbal and tea notes, honey, fruity malts, yeast, spice, grains, and dough. Taste has more fruit and no funk. Quite nice.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink beer.

o - Overall a good, interesting beer. Some definite herbal notes throughout and nice fruit in the taste. Easy to drink, would have it again.
