bottle shared. poured a beautiful deep hazed golden colour with a nice white head on top. nose is again really special like most of the emptiness series i’ve had. a nice and clear notice of tangerines, and persimmons, so subtle and balanced with a nice saison funk, oak, and wine precense. very light and bright mouthfeel. fresh citrus, a nice balanced tartness. slight dry, funky yeast, this beer is really amazing! wow. these guys can seriously make some good saisons! still have the plum and apricot versions, and i can’t wait to try them!

Smells good too; fruity and oaky with mild yeast notes. Tastes like it smells with a tart, dry mouthfeel and a bit of earthiness. Good beer!

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 bro. hazy if not cloudy yet bright yellow pour with a small reviving white cap leaving some lacing. pink flowers, strawberries, lemon, white wine, dusty and just a tad leathery bretts, some funk y’all, very nice saizohnne fruity esters with a spicy hint. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, nice texture, tart, never puckering, balanced spicy-citrusy-dry bretty-slightly astringent finish. excellent!

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!
