look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Had on draft at Tired Hands.

Pours a hazed amber color topped by a tough, robust peach-colored head. Excellent lacing all over the glass. The beer simply is glowing amber. No carbonation obvious.

From TH's notes: "Notes of wet grass, clean malt, strawberries, and distant farm..." I concur! Fairly accurate description of the aroma. The light berry aroma offers suggestions of sweetness and a yeasty fruitiness.

The first sip shows off the really effervescent body, which is good for the style. It has a clean finish. Dry. Lingering notes of berries and farmhouse yeast stay with you well into the aftertaste. The Brett quality is mild, but adds a nice touch of complexity.

I love the delicate aroma and flavor of this beer. It's surprising how high the abv is for the nature of this beer. The beer was quite subtle in all of its characteristics, yet packs quite a punch at 6.6%. Definitely another quality beer from Tired Hands, though I have had better from these guys as well.

First had: on tap at TH

Described as a "blended brett saison."
Or "Tauna" for those of you not kvlt enough.

Bronzed amber pour, slightly hazy, with an inch of foamy off-white head that retained well and left lots of lacing on the glass. I didn't get too much in the aroma, but what I did get was nice, essence of fruit skins and citrus rind, light peppery spice, toasted grains. Taste of toasted grains, slightly woody, with a touch of dry hay, peppery spice, and crisp citrusy hops for a dry, bitter finish. Whalagos kind of overshadowed this one to me, but it was still a good one. Light-medium body, crisp and enjoyable.
