COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 12, 2012
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.

Leighton (11876) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Growler share in NYC. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma is fairly relaxed, some dry white bread, sourdough, lemon zest. Light sweet flavor with baked cereal, bitter hay, lemon pith. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with faint lemony twang, some bitter grains, cereal, straw, dry baked white bread. Fine.

skmikeg (1000) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2014
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.

solidfunk (4491) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Hard to pick out the grain profile here. Citrusy hops with rye. Some notes of certain barley, and the rye brings some note of sour mash here. Good finish, with notes of grass. Golden hazy pour with ok head and lacing. Tap at brewpub.

Swingtop, 2/4/14, from Jesterdeal, drunk on 2/16/14
Lovely golden-pear colored body is topped by a smattering of white head that recedes to cover. Light haziness to it that increases as I get towards the bottom of the growler.
Very light tartness in the nose, just a hint of lactic-like cheesiness followed by dry wheat and oat cream-like notes and floral hoppiness that mixes with pepper phenols. Extremely dry and clean, no flaws or alcohol.
Light bubblegum, pears and wheat creaminess in the mouth with a touch of lemon zest spiciness from the hops, plentiful pepperiness from the yeast and a soft but ample body showcasing the supple texture provided by the different grains. This swingtop is 12 days old and it says "Drink within 48 hours" which I initially took to mean, after opening. But I’m thinkin they meant within filling...Anyways, my rating definitely reflects how this would be fresh on draft, not 12 days old in a growler. Pretty frickin good. Thanks Jesse!

Bright in citrus, murky in yellow appearance. Strong notes of rusticness, cardboard and hay. Heavy on the rye. Refreshing, though, and easy to drink.

Pours light yellow with a spicey rye bite. Taste is grassy, with spice and lemon. Not bad.

AirForceHops (3525) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft @ Tired hands, 1/24/2012. I prefer this over the H.C.S I sample right before it. Really beautiful flavor of fresh cut grass, zesty yeast with a chewy mouthfeel from the oats the brewer uses. The flavor is balanced with sweet grain and a nice level of bright citrus hops. The finish is clean and real refreshing. This would be great in the summer but also works well in the cold of January. Great classic example of the style.

11/6/13 $2 4oz at the bar. 2nd 4oz beer after filling up 7 growlers to trade. First saison ever drank while "rating beers". Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with nice lemony yeast flavors. I liked it better then the "we are infinite..." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
