Jester King Fantome Del Rey, the Texas edition and follow up to the 2014 Fantome collaboration releases today.
The Texas edition of Jester King Fantome Del Rey is a blend of old and young barrel aged beer. (AKA Bière de Courage.) The older piece of this blend is the 2014 edition from 2014, brewed with barley, dark candi syrup, coriander, and black peppercorns. That beer was fermented in stainless steel with truffle honey before headed to oak barrels.
Sadly, thanks to restrictive beer laws in Jester’s home state, the beer couldn’t be released there.
In 2015, Jester King brewed the young edition of the collaboration, and blended it with the old.
Jester King Fantome Del Rey (Texas Edition) will be available by the glass, and to-go in 750 milliliter bottles when the tap room opens on May 6th, 2016.
8.8% ABV, 19 IBUs
