We're pleased to introduce Jester King Barrel Aged Wild Ale with Jambolan Plums!
Finding interesting Texas fruits and fermenting them with our beer is perhaps our favorite thing to do at Jester King. In this case, we found a new fruit we'd never worked with before grown in southern Texas -- Jambolan plums! Native to India, Burma, Ceylon and the Andaman Islands, the Jambolan plums we worked with were grown at Paradise Gardens in Los Fresnos, Texas.
We took mature barrel aged wild ale and refermented it with Jambolan plums at around 2-3 pounds per gallon. Once the fruit refermentation reached total dryness, we naturally conditioned the beer in bottles and kegs (6.6% abv). The plums deliver quite a unique flavor and aroma! We get a lovely mix of jammy, seedy, wintergreen, and sloe gin character.
Barrel Aged Wild Ale with Jambolan Plums is now available for online ordering and pickup at Jester King. Here's the link to our website for ordering: https://jesterkingbrewery.com/ Proxies welcome (please designate). We have about 650 bottles (750ml/$35). No bottle limit. Texas law prohibits shipping and delivery. No disto.
Please come visit us at our brewery, kitchen, and farm in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the outskirts of Austin! We're open Wednesday to Sunday every week (closed Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Day). Please make a reservation on our website. We also accept a limited number of walk-ins each day.
Cheers & Happy Holidays!
