Our four-grain saison. Brewed with rye, wheat, oats, and malted-barley in homage to the original farmers (not brewers) that originated this style. Suggestions of tropical fruit, citrus rind, and black pepper. (Originally known as FarmHands)

Tap at TND. Pours a hazy yellow/pale golden with a medium creamy white head that left great lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, lemon, spicy saison yeast notes, maybe some Brett brux? Nose reminds me a bit of Orval. Flavor of the same tropical fruits and spicy saison yeast notes. Really nice and dry, decent American hop profile along with the bitterness. Also seem to be picking up some Brett character in the flavor. Super dry, full of hoppy and saison character. A cross between and saison and a hoppy "west coast" style pale ale. Makes me even more excited about tired hands opening up later this month.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought lemon zest, orange, some bread, biscuit into a bit of white pepper, grass, touch of herbal, almost floral hops with a touch of dough. Taste was a mix of bread, dough, yeast into some pepper, floral, herbal notes into a bit of bread, biscuit, slight lemon zest, orange peel finishing fairly dry.

Pours a straw yellow with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus peels, ripe tropical fruits, black pepper, rye, sour fruits, fresh herbs, and some light barnyard funk. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, black pepper, sourdough bread, spicy rye, and some light barnyard funk. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a pretty dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a very nice Saison that is actually sesionable.
