Growler thanks to Randall. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Yeast and spice aromas. Light and watery with yeast and spice notes. Not very inspiring.

Growler (1L). Thanks to John! Yellow with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of Saison yeast, grains, fresh cereals and herbal notes. Taste is slightly sweet with grains, underlying malt presence, Saison yeast and an herbal finish. Light body. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing and ultra-drinkable. Nice session beer.

Draft at tired hands..light apple juice like hue..nose of lemon zest..barnyard hay and funk..can’t remember if this was on the billing..aroma is solid..quite flavorful..however came off as a tad thinner than expected..leaves some spices notes on the palate..liked their other offerings much better..

Tap flight at the brewery. Very pale yellow color, thin light head leaves a very delicate lace. Aroma is funky horse blanket and Myers lemon. Taste is funky, citrusy, tart, and clean. You can taste each if the four grains distinctly. Thin palate but the oats give it character.

On tap at Tired Hands. Was concerned when I saw "four grain" because my last four grain beer experience was a nightmare, but this was anything but. Good thing this is one of their house beers, because any saison lover should try this.

8 day old 64 ounce growler. Crispy yellow appearance. Minimal head. Loving the oatmeal and lemon zest notes. Really nice. Taste is a crisp lemon wheat with a peppery finish. Very impressive.

1L growler, sent from callmemickey (thanks a lot, Ryan), pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of dry wheat upfront some rustic farmhouse notes and hay. Flavour is extremely refreshing, with loads of dry wheat, lightly tart citrus, hay and some rustic notes. Quite flavourful for a sub-5% beer. Extremely refreshing and well-constructed. Great stuff.
