TomDecapolis (4618) - 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.

On tap at the Fermentaria. It pours a pale yellow/gold color. A little hazy. The aroma is light lemony and grapefruit funk. The flavor is also citrus forward and lightly tart with some lime notes. Dry. Really nice stuff.

Draft at the fridge. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Nice black pepper and citrus notes on the nose. Has those lovely barnyard notes you'd expect from a good saison. Finished clean. Good example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

koleminer20 (2439) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2016
On draft at Tired Hands Fermentaria. The pour is a clear light golden yellow color with a larger white head that falls down to a thick collar. The aroma is great. Tart and crisp. Lots of lemon zest and citrus. Light spicy rye on the way back. Great tartness. The flavor is also good. There is a tart citrus on the front end that moves through to a light maltiness. There is a bit of barnyard dustiness on the back end. The mouth feel is decently bodied, but undercarbonated. It’s a good combination of tart and funk, with a hint of spice and a lingeringly malty, lightly spicy, and a "zippy" citrusy finish. This is great
