A Note on This Beer
Show up to a bottle share with anything Jester King, and all the Wild Ale fans in the room will cheer. Show up with a bottle of today’s 4.22 BA-rated Saison Americaine, and they might offer you cash on the spot for it.
When it comes to tart and funky brews, Texas’s Jester King is in a league all their own. They’ve got 8 of the top 75 Wild Ales on BA and they’re one of 2018’s Top 5 Small Breweries in the World according to Craft Beer and Brewing.
Jester King believes a Saison should be a reflection of where it’s brewed. It’s all about wild yeasts, local ingredients, and, of course, the people who drink it. And in Texas, that means making something bold enough to satisfy a Texas-sized thirst.
To do it, they fermented this brew in oak foudres with wild yeast, cranking up the tartness and creating waves of gently puckering acidity. Texas-grown Pale Malt lends the brew a biscuity character that balances the tanginess, while the 5.2% ABV keeps it crushable all day long.
With its hyper local ingredients, Saison Americaine truly encapsulates the place it was made and the people who love it. This is a rare chance to taste real Texas terroir from one of the most sought after breweries in the country. So if you’re a fan of Sours, Wild Ales, Belgians, or just great American craft, this is a must try.
