A Note on This Beer
When it comes to tart and funky brews, Texas’s Jester King is in a league all their own. They have 8 of the top 75 Wild Ales on BeerAdvocate, AND they’re one of the Top 5 Small Breweries in the World according to Craft Beer and Brewing.
This is why, if you whip out today’s Grim Harvest Farmhouse Ale Saison at your next get-together, you better be ready for all eyes to be on you.
These artfully crafted bottles are so rarely seen outside of the Austin-based taproom, fans have been known to trade club-exclusive releases from The Ale Apothecary and Cantillon for a chance to score a sip of Jester King!
By adding second-use blackberries, which originally fermented in one of Jester King’s oak-aged Ales, the brewery showcases the tart berry while elevating the Wild Yeast as the star of today’s pour.
Each sip is smooth, exhibiting a graceful dance between hints of tangy citrus and notes of sweet cherries. The emphasis on the wild cultures allows full funk character to shine with sparkling layers of Brett that slip through the mouthful. The 5.6% ABV ends with a dry, crisp finish and a gentle kiss of blackberries for an artfully balanced pour.
So if you’re a fan of Wild Ales, Sours, or just great American craft, scoring today’s Grim Harvest from one of the most sought-after breweries in the country is an opportunity you really don’t want to miss.
