Jester King Brewery has a new offering arriving in the tasting room this week – Detritivore. The latest offering is brewed with the same cherries used another brewery release, Montmorency vs. Balaton. This method of using the fruits for a second time to ferment, give the beer a little more subtle flavor than when fermented fresh. La Vie en Rose and Atrial Rubicite are also “fruited” this way.
Also, Detritivore uses aged hops that Jester King matured in a nearby barn. The aged hops give the some barnyard and horse blanket flavors. The yeast is blend of saccharomyces, native wild yeast, and souring bacteria.
Style: American Wild Ale
Availability: 750ml Bottles. Limited to 200 cases
Arrival: July 11th, 2014
