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.

Bottle shared by 77ships, thanks! Unclear red-purple color, no head. Smell and taste red fruit, sour, tart, a sharp sort of sourness. Decent body and decent carbonation. Not my kind of beer though.

Bottle, many thanks 77ships! Hazy ruby color with pink head. Aroma is cherries, lactic funk, wood, a bit medicinal. Taste is a bit bandaid, tannic. Medium carbonation. Good one, but there is some medicinal aroma there that is a bit off-putting from the really great rest.
