Spiteful Brewing Absinthe Barrel Aged Klutzy Buffoon with Cherries joins the brewery’s barrel aged lineup this week. Spiteful Brewing co-founder Jason Klein says “It tastes like a beer cocktail.”
Absinthe Barrel Aged Klutzy Buffoon is a saison with cherries, aged in Letherbee Distillers absinthe barrels. Letherbee is actually located in the same building as Spiteful, so the decision to work with them was easy.
“When Letherbee gave us the first absinthe barrel, we were thrilled. We had no idea we would be able to secure more,” said Spiteful representative Calvin Fredrickson.
Spiteful Brewing wants to build a larger absinthe barrel aged series. Asinthe Barrel-Aged Klutzy Buffoon Saison with Cherries is available in 22oz bombers in Chicago starting this week.
