COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re excited to introduce 2016 Jester King Bière de Lenoir — our barrel aged sour beer refermented with Texas-grown Lenoir grapes! This is the first time we’ve ever worked with Lenoir grapes. Bière de Lenoir is a blend of barrel aged beer brewed with Hill Country well water, malted and raw grains from our friends at Blacklands Malt, fresh and aged hops, and fermented with our mixed culture of brewers yeast and native yeast and bacteria. It matured in oak barrels for eight to fourteen months before blending and refermention with Lenoir grapes (also known as Black Spanish) from Torre di Pietra Vineyards in Fredericksburg, Texas. It was packaged in bottles and kegs on October 24th, 2016 and is 100% naturally refermented, unfiltered, and unpasteurized. At the time of bottling, Bière de Lenoir was 6.9% alcohol by volume, 1.002 specific gravity (0.5 degrees Plato), 11 IBU, and 3.4 pH.

Thanks James for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing translucent purple with a lot of sediment and quickly dissipating clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of grape forwardness with a strong background of brett and horse-blanket. The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Moderate, balanced tartness with a strong brett background and further evenly weighed with juicy vinous grape forwardness throughout. Fantastic
