Just three months after the last release, Tired Hands Brewing Co. is delivering another Parageusia.
The newest version in the line, named Parageusia4, is a wild ale brewed 12 months ago with wheat malt before being fermented in Cabernet Franc barrels that will come in “between 7 and 7.5 percent ABV.” This incarnation was brewed by Jean Broillet IV at Tired Hands Brewing Co. in Ardmore, Pa. under the direction of Christian Zellersfield from Future Rustic.
“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,” said Zellersfield, in a post on Tired Hand’s Instagram page. “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 watermelon-like acidity, lush barrel character, and a lively citrusy acidity. Also, it is suitable for indefinite aging into the future.”
This is fourth release of the wild ale, with both Parageusia1 (6.5 percent ABV) and Parageusia2 (8.2 percent ABV) released in 2014, while Parageusia3 (7 percent ABV) was released in February.
According to Tired Hands, bottles of Parageusia4 (500ml, $18) will go on sale starting May 17 at Tired Hand’s Fermentaria with a one bottle per person limit and only 400 bottles available.
