Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a Cabernet Franc barrel-fermented Ale that I brewed with wheat malt at Tired Hands Brewing Company. At this point, Parageusia1 is roughly nine months old. The yeast used to ferment this beer is a melange of yeast cultured by Tired Hands Brewing Company as well as yeast and bacteria resident to Ardmore, Pennsylvania. I believe that people of this time may refer to my Ale as a "Saison" or perhaps a "Wild Ale". Archaic stylistic descriptions aside, this is an Ale that I find to be very engaging and enjoyable; Bone dry with a bright citric acidity and a refined stone fruit presence. Also, it is suitable for indefinite aging into the future.

It was very important for me to design a series of beers available for the current market that accurately represented the level of sophistication and Future Rusticity that people of my time have come to expect from Parageusia. It is my hope and sincere desire that, through these collaborations with Tired Hands, we will build a more evolved level of beer appreciation in this time (the present) to prepare the people of Earth for the intensity of organoleptic refinement of my time (the future).

Pour is hazed pale golden amber with a small amount of white head that dissipates immediately. Nose is overly sulfuric, a bit sweet, some lemon notes, some peppery notes, a bit of leathery brett, grassy leafy bitterness in back. Taste is very sweet, lots of sugary sweetness and grape skins, moderately sour, fair bit of sulfur, faint peppery spice. Overly carbonated, fuller syrupy body.

Poured into matching Parageusia1 glass.

This brew pours a golden orange with a beautiful head that fades rather quick leaving lots of lacing. Probably would have lasted longer if I didn't have to pick out a couple bits of wax.

Smell is strong white wine, grape musk, funk, citrus, and barrel.

This tastes pretty impressive. Again at the forefront you get a lot of the wine and grape up front. Follows beautifully by the funk and citrus along with some tart cranberry and sour cherry.

This brew has fantastic carbonation and is very dry. Provides just the right amount of puckering you'd like in a sour.

Overall this is an exceptional beer. I tend to prefer fruited sours, but this is just an overall great brew.
