A new month is bringing with it the sixth release of Jester King Brewery’s barrel-aged peach sour ale.
That beer is 2019 分 桃—pronounced 2019 Fēn Táo—a 6 percent ABV farmhouse ale aged in neutral oak barrels between nine and 14 months. The ale was also refermented on 2,000 pounds of Regal and June Gold peaches sourced from Vogel Orchard in Stonewall, Texas near the town of Fredericksburg, Texas.
Fēn Táo was released for the first time on Sept. 12. 2014 with approximately 1,800 bottles available, and the last release of the ale was on Aug. 31, 2018 with approximately 2,200 bottles sold.
According to a post on Jester King’s website, 2019 Fēn Táo will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($20) and will have a four bottle per person per day purchase limit when they go on sale on Aug. 1 with approximately 1,300 bottles available.
