Tired Hands Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States
Retired (no longer brewed)
Notes: This is a Cabernet Franc barrel-fermented Ale that I brewed with wheat malt at Tired Hands Brewing Company. At this point, Parageusia3 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 mandarin orange pith acidity, lush barrel character, and a refined stone fruit presence. Also, it is suitable for indefinite aging into the future.

Poured into a Jester King Wine glass

Pours a cloudy orange color. Kinda flat. A few bubbles when poured but turned still very quick. Smell is funky sour with some grape, apricot, wine. Taste follows suit with less sourness. Get more grape taste then anything. Feel is a little flat. Overall a nice fruit sour mix. Picking up the subtle fruit notes and smooth sourness is awesome.

500ml bottle poured into a teku glass

Appearance: Pours a like gold orange color with a small head that dissipates instantly. Body is lightly hazy with very little visible carbonation.

Smell: Lactic sourness, oak, white grape, funk, apricot and a slight red berry character.

Taste: Tart grape, apricot, grain, quite a bit of oak and funk as well as some hay. Medium sourness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, somewhat flat mouthfeel with low carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: Another really good beer from Tired Hands. A bit of a step down from the first 2 Parageusias, but still worth seeking out.

Bottle was almost entirely flat. Other people do not seem to be complaining of such a phenomenon with this beer. It had some great character regardless, but reminded me of my experiences trying to tell myself I like still Lambic.

Smell of citrus, light golden color with nice haze, slight sour taste, very smooth after taste, absolutely one of the best beers I've ever tasted! Have 2 more left!
