BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tired Hands Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
tiredhands.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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).

500ml bottle, light green label and wax, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange body, one finger white head, fair retention, lots of nice stringy lacing. Smells of hay, light citrus zest, mild acetic acid, not much lacto, plenty of oak, sweet graininess. Nice complexity. Flavour is similar, mild acetic acid, straw, hay, citrus zest, grain, a bit of stone fruit, oak. Unique; I don't think I've had any comparable wild ales. Not particularly sour, just enough, on the sweeter side. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, nice fluffy carbonation, crisp and slightly drying. Overall, this was a very interesting AWA; unique with more sweetness than I'm accustomed to.
