3.89/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - cloudy marigold. Little foam. Growler is a few days old.

S - very interesting aroma. At certain points the aroma is full of funky brett, white grapes and flowers. Yet on the next sniff its a lovely mix of malt and yeasty esters creating a raspberry jelly donut note.

T - flaky dough. Crisp acidity. Lemon curds. Raspberries.
White grapes. Brett on the backend.

M - lighter medium. Super crisp. Medium carb. Tight bubbles.

O - really unique beer. I'd probably consider this more of an american wild ale but no matter what you call it, it is tasty and a great pairing partner. It was fantastic with some chicken tikka masala.

On tap @ Tired Hands, served in an 8oz glass

A - Hazy/cloudy pour with one finger white head. A little cloudier than a standard TH saison; I'm assuming from the chamomile.

S - Way different than I was expecting. I was expecting an earthy, soft, chamomile saison, but this one smells pretty funky with a ton of white wine and grape notes. I didn't get much of the tea, but what was there smelled great.

T - Surprise of the night. The partial wine barrel aging is dead on with this one. Almost tastes like a slightly stronger, blended version of Handfarm with just a trace amount of tea added. Really delicious.

M - Standard medium-low Tired Hands carbonation. Worked for this beer though, wouldn't have wanted a ton of bubbles.

O - I almost didn't order this because I don't like chamomile tea, but I'm really glad I did. Definitely a solid offering from TH and a perfect example of what they do well - non-mega ABV beers with some complexity that drink really smooth. I want a growler of this one for my face.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a lighter yellow color with two fingers of head. Head retention is decent with nice ribbed lacing on the glass.

S: Spices, citrus, sharp aroma.

T: Really nice and flavorful Saison. Lots of spice and citrus with ample hop flavor coming through. Wine barrel fermenting adds a nice dimension to enhance the fresh Saison flavor.

M: Light yet full of body.

O: Really good brew.
