Pours a hazy honey color with a medium creamy white head...as always with TH beers, nice retention and lacing..Aroma has notable herbal qualities...sage and rosemary...some juicyfruit notes. Flavor is even more herbal...still dominated by sage and rosemary...lavender creeps in as does a touch of lemon and rind. Mouthfeel is medium and lively with an herbal/juicyfruit dry finish that lingers.

Served on-tap at the Brewpub a month or so ago, just getting around to adding this now. A - Pours golden orange with a small half finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass. S - Smells of bready grain, lemon zest, fresh herbs and some light spice. The lavender comes through more as it sits in the glass. Fairly well balanced for the duration. T- Taste fallows the nose. The herbs and lemon twang start things off slowly giving way to hints of chewy grain, lavender, dash of hop bitterness and some light spice. Finish is pretty clean actually, only a touch of breadiness that doesn’t linger for more than a brief moment. M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Fresh, light feel from start to finish. O - Another nice saison from Tired Hands. The flavors are pretty well integrated and it remains easy to consume. Glad I got to try this one.

Cloudy white head, orange. Taste is nice barnyard, some spice, citrusy, roses, slight bitterness. Aroma is spicy, salty, flowery, herb garden. Really good saison. Sweet and sour?

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Draft at Tired Hands. Pours a cloudy golden orange with thin white head. Nose is light sage, possibly some rosemary as well, and a little funk. Taste is lavender upfront, not overwhelming, with some light lemon on the back end.

Hazy straw color with a nicely lacing head. Aroma is intense herbs and soap. If someone made a beer by mashing potpourri I think it would taste like this. Big miss in my opinion.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2012
On tap at Tired Hands. Foggy yellow brown with a fading white head. Nose is subtle banana yeast, sage and lemon peel. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Taste is rosemary, honey and sage with the lemons adding a slightly sour finish. These guys handle their herbs better than anyone i’ve come across. Always fresh and delicate.

Winner winner Rosemary, sage, and lemon dinner. This is great. Pours a cloudy straw color with aroma of herbs mainly rosemary and sage. Really nice creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Taste is light lemon tart with great herbal flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Hazy golden yellow body. Moderate size fluffy white head. Soapy lacing. Nose is intense floral/herbal notes. Sage and rosemary are dominant with lemon and lavender taking a back seat. Flavor sees a bit of improvement with the juicy lemon characteristics and lavender becoming more assertive. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation and a nice herbal tea tingle. Would prefer this to come jn a tad drier--but that is nitpicking.
