There is a second batch of Jester King Brewery’s blueberry sour coming, but it won’t be available to purchase for a month or two.
The beer in question is Colour Five, a oak barrel-aged sour beer brewed with pilsner and wheat malt along with golding hops before being conditioned on blueberries sourced from Tyler, Texas “for about a month.”
The first batch of the blueberry sour was a blend of two of Jester King’s already existing beers—89 percent Das Überkind (6 percent ABV) and 11 percent RU55 (7.3 percent ABV)—and was bottled on Sept. 24, 2014 before being released in 500ml bottles on Oct. 31, 2014.

However, that first batch of Colour Five was not the first time the Austin, Texas-based brewery had attempted to produce a blueberry sour. In early 2014, Jester King dumped a barrel-aged beer brewed with blueberries down the drain after it was found to be to acetic for the brewery’s standards.
In an email, Jester King owner Jeffery Stuffings told Tenemu that there were approximately 1,750 500ml bottles filled, and a post on Jester King’s Facebook page says that it will be ready for release “sometime in February or March.”
