Tired Hands Ourison

“Ourison represents the progression and evolution of our Saison fermentation program. Ourison is Our Saison, SaisonHands, left to condition in oak and then allowed to fully express itself via a lengthy bottle conditioning period. The end result is a highly refined snappy and pungent Saison that, I feel, is one of the most simplistic and exciting iterations of Saison that we have ever produced.”

Final Rating: 4.49/5
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Tired Hands stemmed taster glass. Thanks Bsquirrelbrewer for throwing this in as an extra!!!

Pours a hazy bright yellow body with a pretty big white head that reduces pretty quickly leaving spotty lacing and a ring of retention.

Aromas are interesting. Quite honestly, when I first cracked this I thought it was skunked because I got a slight skunky aroma. Once it sits for a minute that completely goes away and leaves an excellent saison citrusy tartness, oaky aroma.

On the tongue is a delightfully balanced medly of tart citrus, grassy saison yeast, light pepper, finishes dry with a light oak and slight hoppy bite. Mouthfeel is amazing, crisp, refreshing, perfectly carbonated.

Overall a world class Saison, this is very well done.
