On tap at the source last weekend, and then served from a growler into a Forest & Main pint glass. Pours a clear golden with visible carbonation. Nice white head with a good retention time and nice lacing on the way down. The nose is slightly grainy and backed by a bit of pepper and spice. The flavor is crisp and grainy, backed with subtle spice and yeast notes. Light body and fairly-heavy carbonation. Really easy to drink. Mild, but fantastic for the session saison that it is.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear orange color with a slight white head. Light sour aroma with a fruity citrus aroma in there too. Light body and light carb. Really easy drinking and refreshing with just a light amount of tart.

Pours an orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is funk, stonefruit and grain. Taste is stonefruit, pineapple and passion fruit, finishes bitter and dry. So tasty, I could drink this regularly.

Growler from the brewpub. So similar to Tired Hands’ SaisonHands that I would not swear they were two different beers.
