Impressively sour for a light and refreshing saison. Strong citrus notes with just a little bit of funk. I could drink this all night long. Absolutely delicious.

Golden yellow. Aroma is mineral, floral, and slight sour. Taste is more developed, with mild saidon sourness blending with the tea. A light, good introduction to saison perhaps. Overall, okay.

The aroma offers dirty water, tart apple, floral.

The flavor follows tart, flowing acidity, soft and crackers. There's a wonderful bright tea, without even knowing it's in there, it sits there on the flavor.

Golden yellow, with a good head that dissipates quickly.
Quite citrusy and sour.
The hoppiness kicked in at the end, a little bit floral.

A good brew, quite refreshing for the summer. However the bitterness is a little bit too much.

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.

Tired Hands Brewing Co. "Li'l Lady Tea & Honey Saison"
$4.50 / 8 oz. on tap @ the Tired Hands Fermentaria on 3 Sept 2016

"Tea & Honey Saison. 5.4% Brewed with Spelt and Pennsylvania wildflower honey. Spiced with rooibos and earl grey tea.Fermented in one of our oak foudres with our house Emptiness culture".

Appearance: Cloudy yellow with an orange cast beneath a short head of creamy bright white foam. It looks like a Mimosa. Good head retention and better lacing (tiny spots and small splashes of lace).

Aroma: Fruity and funky with wet wood and mild mineral.

Flavor: Fruit (tart fruit, citrus), "Sweet Tarts" candy, cedar. The Rooibos is pretty obvious, but the Bergamot from the Earl Grey needs to be looked for and mainly appears in the finish. The spelt isn't clear, but neither should it really be; it may be adding something to the woody spiciness. The oak isn't really clear either, although I'm sure it's present as well, adding to the mix. I didn't find honey at all. It's more than tart... it's sour, actually, and surprisingly fruity (tart fruits, apricot). The fruity, dry and acidic finish fades relatively quickly leaving the palate yearning for another sip.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium in body with a gently tingling effervescent carbonation.

Overall: Quite impressive. Delicate, and yet also aggressive! Interesting. Well worth trying.
