If you love cherries, Jester King has a beer for you.
The Austin, Texas-based brewery has just announced that the second batch of Detritivore, a 5.5 percent ABV farmhouse ale refermented with the same Michigan cherries used in the production of Montmorency vs. Balaton barrel-aged sour ale (6.7 percent ABV.)
“Detritivore is made by taking the refermented cherries from Montmorency vs Balaton, and refermenting them a second time with young farmhouse ale fermented in stainless steel” reads a post on Jester King’s website. “While we enjoy the bright, jammy flavors and aromas of Montmorency vs Balaton, most of us here at Jester King prefer the more subtle, integrated fruit character in Detritivore.”
The first batch of Detritivore was released at Jester King on July 11, 2014.
According to the brewery, about 2,000 750ml bottles ($14) are available, and will go on sale on May 29 with a limit of two bottles per person per day.
