Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden pour with a good off-white head. Fruity aroma, plenty of Brett, a bit of funk and tart, some lemon, lots of stone and pit fruits... really digging the aroma. Nice flavor, a bit of spice, some Brett and funk, lemon, a touch floral - not as good as the aroma led on. Nice.

transparent gold, soft white head, large-bubbled. Nose is peach and lime, nice pine balance from hop. Peach and cream up front followed by light metal, thick pine finish before doughy end emerges with warmth. Aside from the thick piney body, a hoppy saison TH style

Growler (2 L) 10 days old. Huge thanks to phillycraft for this one! Pours clear golden with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is incredibly enticing with tons of brettanomyces, lot of tropical fruits going on there too along with slight grassy notes. Taste is moderately sweet with brettanomyces (less than in the aroma), tropical fruits, slight malt, and moderate to strong herbal finish. Mouthfeel is dry. Medium body. Very good Saison. If it was not of the herbal finish, it would be a beer that I’d love to drink everyday (and a good amount of it!).

Huge pour from a 2L growler brought by tom10101, thanks again Tommy! This one here had the best aroma of all the beers we had that afternoon: vinous, bretty (leather and tropical notes) and some grassy notes too. Taste wise is it a bit less "sour" than HandFarm (more residual sugars) but it is far from cloying. Appearance was similar to the HandFarm we had a few beers before it, cloudy yellow. I didn’t know much about Tired Hands before this afternoon and I must say that I am impressed so far!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Growler shared by tom10101. thanks a lot! Pours a hazy golden with a small white head with a nice lacing. Aroma is definitely a winner here. Very fruity and brett. Taste has a lot of funk, kind of a vinous taste, lots of herbal notes, pears and peaches, a bit sweet. Good carbonation. Medium drinkability because of the sweetness.
