La Vie En Rose (Batch 7)
Jester King Brewery
A Note on This Beer
For Jester King, every ingredient is irreplaceable in their top-ranking Farmhouse Ales. After they brewed BA’s #1 rated beer in all of Texas, they saw new life in the raspberries left behind: A chance to capture the essence of the fruit while showcasing the brewery’s trademark Texas terroir.
And since they only brewed 113 cases of La Vie En Rose Farmhouse Ale, even fans journeying to Jester King’s grandiose Texas ranch may not get a taste of this delightfully nuanced crimson elixir.
These resurrected raspberries still hold onto their bright aroma, but are delicate enough to let Jester King’s mixed culture base dance upon the palate with balanced acidity. The fruit character melds with mild funk from Texas Hill Country wild yeast, allowing the berries to roll over your tongue with a subtle tartness and the brewery’s signature bone-dry finish.
With their razor sharp focus on local ingredients and timeless brewing techniques, it’s no surprise Jester King makes 6 of the top 10 beers in Texas. If you decide to share this beer with friends, choose them wisely -- the chance to taste La Vie En Rose is fleeting.
