Jester King Detritivore Farmhouse Ale with Cherries 5.5% (750ml)

by Jester King

Detritivore was made by adding the same cherries that were used to make Jester King's Montmorency vs. Balaton to fresh beer in stainless steel and allowing the combined beer and fruit to referment to dryness. This was the same technique that we originally used to make La Vie en Rose with the raspberries from Atrial Rubicite. As with La Vie en Rose, the second refermentation of the fruit results in subtler, more delicate flavors, as compared with the more intense flavors that result from the initial refermentation. Detritivore is also among the first Jester King beers to be brewed with aged hops that were matured for an extended period of time in a horse barn approximately 300 yards from the brewery. Aged hops are traditionally used in the production of authentic Belgian Lambic. The aging process preserves the antiseptic properties of the hops, which serve to fend off unfriendly microorganisms, while significantly reducing the bittering components.
