Jester King Estival Dichotomous, the brewery’s summer saison returns to the world again today.
Jester King has two seasonal saisons – Hibernal Dichotomous and Estival Dichotomous. Depending on the temperature and season, the brewery changes how the beer is brewed, from fermentation, to available ingredients.
The 2016 edition features grapefruit and tangelo zest, that was added to mature barrel-aged sour beer. Then the beer was blended with citrus zest and young beer that was fermented in stainless steel. The final step – refermenting the blend with marion blackberries.
Estival Dichotomous is an analog for the summer season. It’s a beer that’s evocative of the summer weather and its bounty, particularly the smells of hay resting in the fields late in the season.
Jester King Estival Dichotomous will be released at Jester King Brewery on Friday, November 4th, at 4 pm.
