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)

Aroma is nice with barnyard, yeast, citrus, and violets. Pours cleanish and Amber with a small head. Taste is clean and wonderful with yeasty barnyard, slight citrus, and perfection. This is a perfectly made saison.

This one poured a hazy bright yellow with a white head. Aroma was of pale grain, lemon, coriander , chamomille, and grass. Flavor was similar, mild harness, but a bit too grainy for me without much pop.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 On draft at TH. Cloudy dishwater appearance. Interesting idea, using four different kinds of grains. Smooth, light, complex & pleasantly sour. Cereal grains, citrus, fruit vinegar, clove, and a dash of cider. A good summer release, similar to a Berliner weisse and almost venturing into wine territory. Very good. Is Tired Hands the master of saisons or what?

HonusWagner (1978) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Really great fruity notes with lean crisp malt character, not funky or tart and not really all that spicy so I guess some people might not think it?s very saison-y but I really enjoyed it as just a good blonde-ish ale that?s extremely drinkable.A lot different than years ago. More tart and fruity. Quite good.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2013
On tap at TH. Cloudy pale gold pour, light and elegant looking. Fresh citrus and pepper in the nose, dry leafy hops and earthy grains. Gives the impression of a fine table beer, not far off their grisette in some sense. Playful mouthfeel, a bit of a bitter and dry finish. Flavors are like good fresh bread infused with citrus and spice. Enjoyable session brew.

emacgee (4576) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours a soft straw blonde with 1.5 fingers of sticky white head. Aroma is very earthy, borders on turned fruit and citrus. Some peppery notes. Flavor shows earthy yeast and some bread dough. Over ripe citrus and a peppery/spicy quality. Very light and dry. 6/3/6/3/17

On tap at brewpub. Pours golden with creamy white head. Bread, wheat, grains, citrus, herbs, cooked vegetables. Moderately bitter and sweet. Aroma was quite unique, but somewhat unpleasant. Kind of spoiled this beer for me.
