The newest version of Jester King Brewery’s Saison Américaine is being released today.

Although the newest version comes in at a slighter 5.9 percent ABV compared to last year’s debut, the beer remains a farmhouse ale that whose name refers to a modern-American interpretation of saison. The saison was brewed with malted barley, malted wheat, a mixed culture of brewer’s yeast as well as native yeast and bacteria, and was brewed on Sept. 12, 2017 before being bottled at the Austin-based brewery on Nov. 28, 2017.

“For Saison Américaine, we age a simple wort brewed with well water, malted barley, raw wheat and hops in one of our oak foudres for a few months and allow the bacteria in our mixed culture to create acidity,” reads a post on Jester King’s Facebook page.”The acidity is bolstered by a relatively low dose of hops in the boil.”

According to Jester King, Saison Américaine Batch 2 will be packaged in 750ml bottles ($14) with approximately 2,900 bottles available when it goes on sale today with no purchase limit.
