As with previous batches, this release of Montmorency vs. Balafon will be brewed with carared, crystal pilsner, melanoidin, Munich and two-row malts, malted wheat, roasted barley as well as golding hops before before being conditioned on both Montmorency and Balaton cherries aged in oak barrels.

The cherries used for Montmorency vs. Balafon have historically been refermented for a second time in order to produce Jester King’s Detritivore (5.5 percent ABV.)
According to Jester King founder Jeffrey Stuffings, there will be approximately 4,500 500ml bottles when Montmorency vs. Balaton goes on sale in “4-6 weeks.”
