COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally, this Belgian style farmhouse ale was brewed in the winter to be enjoyed in the summer. Well, us revolutionaries pay little heed to such silly traditions. We brew our Saison year round because, frankly, we don’t want to wait so long for such a delicious beer. Hired Hand perfectly blends malty and sour notes, with a refreshing dry finish. Enjoyed by laborers and leaders alike.

Deep orange with a slightly dirty white head. Aroma of biscuits. Malty like an amber up front. It's got a bit if a twist from the yeast but the malt feels a little heavy on the tongue and never makes room for much else. Kinda heavy on the mouth too. An ok beer but not light, crisp and funky like I hoped for a saison. If I were rating as an amber or Belgian would give it a higher score. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lightly hazy deep gold beer, big cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Malts are smooth with a little creamy sweetness. Mild spice and light dried fruits. Semi sweet floralness. Smooth semi dry finish. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts here. Comes together very well.

Stuedmaster (298) - San Marcos, California, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy orange-gold, with a creamy, dense white head and thick lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus, wheat, honey, slight pine needle...pretty nice. Seems a little too bitter for a saison, not true to style but still very nice. The complex flavors that underline the bittersweet top make up for the overhopping. Lots of citrus and sweet malt, some mineral flavors, not quite sour enough for me but still slightly sour, strong alpha hop bitterness that adds some pine. Has a soft palate, medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and bitter finish.

Bottle. Light cloudy orange with a biege head. Candied sugar, yeast, light caramel malt, bit of dough. Moderate carbonation and body, easy to drink, somewhat sweet, dry and yeast on the finish.

These guys are great at there aroma and champagne like carbonation that really goes with the phenolic banana pear orange zest nose. Flavor is mouth prickling good ness. Great orange spice flavors with dry finish.

On tap at Duke’s Waikiki 191214. Fresh and refreshing with great flavour and aroma. Paired well with my hula pie.

thegreenrooster (3537) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Pour is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is bubblegum sugar sweetness and a minor fruit. Flavor is a decent citrus hop to start then comes some thick lager malt and ripened fruit notes. Finish has a almost syrupy thick honey sweetness. Very sweet toward the end of the swallow. Much to low on yeasty esters and too high with the sweetness to make this a great saison but this is still solid.

"Meh was the norm for Iron Fist, some worse, a couple better, but this one was straight down the middle. Nothing to distinguish itself. A little muddled with a light sweetness and hop presence and a little additional zest perhaps, but pretty mild."

GriffDaddy (93) - - JUN 28, 2014
Golden/amber pour with a light whitish head. Fruity/bready aroma with a slight funk. Pleasantly balanced, slightly sour with a hint of barn. A bit of citrus stepped on by the malt. Not half bad. Would I drink again? Yes. Would I order again? Yes.

Sweet fruity aroma. Pours murky orange with a white head. Bitter champagne-like flavor with a dry finish.
