Madtree Joon is available once again. A barrel-aged spin on the kolsch style.
Not a lot of barrel-aged kolsch beers exist, making Madtree Joon pretty unique. The the base beer features Pacifica and Cascade hops, aged in Watershed Bourbon Barrel Gin Barrels.
Did that barrel seem weird to you? Columbus, Ohio’s Watershed Distillery selected bourbon barrels to age their Four Peel Gin. Madtree snagged those used barrels for Joon.
This is our second beer we’ve had from the the brewery’s Funk Series. (See Sherry Cherry Raspberry.) Joon is a very unique sour/wild beer, thanks to the combination of ginger, juniper berries, and those fun barrels. The base beer was a kolsch, which really is a ghost of it’s former self. It’s a whole new party now. The beer picked up not only the gin flavors, but a touch of the bourbon too – honestly, never thought that was possible.
Joon, with its unmistakable citrus and pine characteristics, is the solution for those longing to be amidst the evergreens. Aged in Watershed Bourbon Barrel Gin barrels with juniper berries and ginger, this refreshingly tart beer takes a break from the traditional bourbon barrel beers, lifting it to another level. As the days grow long and your spirit yearns for adventure, take the time to drink in your surroundings.
