Tired Hands Singing Swans

Posted: February 6, 2017 in Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale, Tired Hands Brewing Company

This was the second beer that I had at Tired Hands. This time that we visited, we tried their version of nachos, which were deconstructed. They have the best cheese sauce that I’ve ever had. I highly recommend getting it if you find yourself there.


ABV: 4.6%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “He landed a job at Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, Pennsylvania. Through Weyerbacher, Jean learned the ins and outs of brewery management (filtration, bottling, kegging, scrubbing mold, etc.) and made many great friends in the process. He even met his now-wife, Julie Foster, while representing Weyerbacher at a beer festival in Boston. She was a home-brewing college student who was volunteering at the fest.”

Random: I need to get new slippers. My feet are really cold.

The brew poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and yellow, but not quite turbid. It still had a decent amount of carbonation visible. The nose was incredibly fragrant. It started with red wine barrels, toasted oak and yeast. The taste started with the same red wine barrels with a little bit of toast. Yeast came through next and was very prevalent. It had a slight floral note as well on the taste, but the red wine notes overwhelmed some of the more nuanced notes. The body was thin with light carbonation. It had a quick finish with yeast. This beer was alright, but I think I’ve been spoiled by all of the amazing Tired Hands beers that I’ve had. I didn’t think this was a bad beer, but they put out so many better ones.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
