BEER INFO

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

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a Cabernet Franc barrel-fermented Ale that I brewed with oat malt and and a small amount of lightly caramelized malt at Tired Hands Brewing Company. At this point, Parageusia2 is roughly ten 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 under-ripe berry acidity and a pungent fresh grape must presence. Also, it is suitable for indefinite aging into the future.

Batch 2 at Dan's house, thanks @1up!

Already better than the Beatification that preceded. Nose is stone fruit and golden raisin. More TH than gueuze. Flavor is more in line with the style. Light tartness and over ripe peach up front. Some malt sweetness through mid and finish, nice lingering TH saison funk. Good overall, not great - don't get the hype. Just buy some shelfie gueuze and you'll be better off.

Rustic notes among them hay, herbal, forest floor but yet notes of stoned fruit go figure.

500ml bottle, orange wax and label, served in a stemmed glass.

Pours a medium light orange body, one finger white head, less retention, not much lacing. Smells of lemon, citrus, hay, oak, white wine, sweet graininess. More intense than Parageusia1, but perhaps not for the better. Flavour is hay, oak, grain, white wine, a bit of stone fruit, more of the citrus. Mild acetic presence; not much lacto. Mouthfeel is medium, a bit slick and sweeter than I'd like. Overall, this was good but I certainly preferred Parageusia1. This one is on the sweeter side with a bit less complexity to it despite being more aggressive.
