We're very excited to release Balcones Bourbon Barrel Aged Moderne Dansk!
This is the double-barrel-aged version of Jester King Moderne Dansk! We aged wild beer in neutral oak wine barrels for a year, refermented with Danish Stevnsbær cherry juice from Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin in Denmark, then aged the beer for another year in Bourbon Whisky barrels from our good friends at Balcones Distilling in Waco, Texas! The sweet and savory character from the Stevnsbær cherry juice is simply unrivaled in our opinion, and the bourbon character from the Balcones barrels takes this beer to a whole new level!
Expect notes of Luxardo Maraschino Cherries, Old Fashioned, Cherry Heering, Hershey's KISSES filled with cherry cordial, Big Red soda, and Bananas Foster sauce. 9.1% abv.
