Jester King Coquetier is a new barrel aged aged offering on sale at the brewery starting tomorrow.
The brandy barrel aged farmhouse ale is brewed with cubeb peppercorns, anise seed, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Jester King Coquetier grabs its inspiration from the traditional New Orleans cocktail, Sazerac.
Lemon zest recalls the cocktail’s traditional garnish, a thin sliver of lemon peel resting on the rim of the glass. The beer was aged in French brandy barrels, as the cocktail originally called for Cognac brandy.
Jester King Coquetier was brewed in April of 2014. The beer was first fermented in stainless steel using the the brewery’s unique blend of micro-organisms. After stainless, Coquetier was aged in 600 liter French brandy barrels for seven months before being refermented in bottles.
