COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re pleased to introduce our latest beer: Jester King Snörkel — a farmhouse ale brewed with alderwood smoked sea salt and oyster mushrooms grown by our neighbor Logro Farms. Logro Farms is located just a few hundred yards from Jester King Brewery at Ceres Park Ranch. They use spent grain from our beer to sustainably grow delicious oyster mushrooms. We’re excited to have now come full circle by using their mushrooms grown from our spent grain to make a new beer.

Snörkel takes partial inspiration from traditional German Gose. Like Gose, it’s moderate in alcohol (~4.5% ABV), brewed with malted wheat and salt, and has some acidity or sourness in the flavor profile. We specifically used both sea salt and alderwood smoked sea salt, and fermented Snörkel (like all our beer) with a blend of brewers yeast, naturally occurring wild yeast, and native souring bacteria, the last of which lends the beer its acidity. But Gose only served as a jumping off point. From there, we set out to explore the savory characteristics of umami through use of the oyster mushrooms.

Bov (12636) - Bienne, - JUL 30, 2015
courtesy of Jérôme Rebetez - quite clear golden-blond beer with no foam left; aroma of cider and apple; lactic; sweet and sourish, light umami moderate malt backbpone; light salty and smokey, fizzy and very fruity finish, dry - complex, wonderful and deeply satisfying

Trolleo (1533) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 19, 2017
Cloudy yellow color, no head. Sour aroma, some odor, lots of citrus and salt. Medium to heavy salty, real sea salt taste but in borders of drinkability. Medium body, lively carbonation, spaekly, tingling. Very interesting. No mushrooms detected.

Defreni (3153) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2017
Flaske. Lysegul diset øl med et fint stort skumhoved. Duften er let syrlig som en gose. Salaten er tydelig i smagen men den svinger sig ikke rigtig op til det helt store. Lidt tynd mundfylde.

Ampolla compartida al olut club de cata. Es rara de co***** acida com una sidra i diu que porta girgoles? Fresca i lleugera, no esta mal per l’estiu.

Provada al Club cata Olut Sabadell. Recorda a una Sidra amb tocs de lambica, suau una mica àcida i amb un punt salat
