This weekend, Jester King Brewery’s Synthesis Analogous is making a comeback.
The newest incarnation is 2017 Synthesis Analogous, a 6.7 percent farmhouse ale refermented with raspberries and blackberries before being aged in Oloroso sherry barrels for approximately a year. In an email, Jester King owner Jeffrey Stuffings told Tenemu that the final beer is a blend of last year’s releases of Grim Harvest (5.8 percent ABV) and La Vie en Rose (6.2 percent ABV.)
The original Synthesis Analogous debuted in 2015 as a 5.6 percent ABV saison that aged in sherry barrels for “over a year” before being bottled.
According a post on Jester King’s website,, 2017 Synthesis Analogous will be packaged in 750ml bottles ($24) and will have a one bottle per person per day limit when it goes on sale at the brewery on Aug. 11, with approximately 700 bottles available.
