The Emptiness is Eternal is an oak barrel fermented Saison conditioned on a copious amount of Hachiya persimmons grown by our dear friend Tom Culton at his family farm in Lancaster, PA.

Bottle at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, acid, persimmon, tart. Medium bodied, bright citrus, lemon peel. Super bright acid, very slow to develop, but big citric acid. 3 for 3, these are crazy good.

Pours a hazy yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat, white wine, apricot, oak and funk. Taste is sour grainy wheat, loads of funk, persimmons, apricots, white wine and citrus in the finish. This beer is amazing, maybe the best of the series. Wow!

Tired hands continues to impress with their bottles. Tons of "Persimmon?" which comes off as a tangy apricot. Tartness is balanced and mouthfeel is creamy and nice. Love the emptiness beers.

Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks a lot man! Pours a hazy light golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is really good with something I associate with grapes, some green apples (no, not the wrong kind) and some nice brett funk. Taste is really acidic and tart, features again some green grapes and other acidic fruits. Oak isn’t that present but it is still there. Overall the general feeling is winey, white wine that is. Body was light, carbonation medium-high and the acidity is really refreshing. Overall a really nice way to start "round #2" with Tired Hands!

Bottle (500 ml). Thanks to John for this one! Hazy bright straw color with a medium easy to revive white head and light lacing. Aroma is winey with lemon notes, rustic notes and nice fruitiness. Taste is so damn tasty with wine, lemon, nice bright acidity, wood and fruity notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Dry finish. Super tasty and drinkable. Really good barrel-aged Saison.

> High citric, tropical fruity blonde sour

[ Bottle ][ 500mL ][ MrChopin ][ Trade ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Pours clear straw, medium dense white foam. Great foam. Nose is really awesome, passion fruit, bright tropical fruits, big funk, pure sour/wild nose. Taste is high citric, lemon, grapefruit, dry. Very good, but again, I disagree that this is saison. Even if the base beer is a saison, the finished product is not. This is more akin to RR Compunction than FarmHands.

>!< high citric, big lemon, gets a bit one note

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Thanks Dave! Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Lily, white floral, twangy, light tropical fruity, vanilla aroma. Really funky and juicy, pineapple, guava flavor. Somewhat floral, kind of weedy / dandelion. Complex, tart and fun.
