We’re excited to announce that Jester King Montmorency vs. Balaton Blend 4 will be released this Friday, June 16th at 4pm!

Montmorency vs. Balaton is our barrel aged sour beer refermented with Montmorency and Balaton cherries from Michigan. To make

Montmorency vs. Balaton, we brew a medium gravity, pale wort with Hill Country well water, local malt from Blacklands Malt, and hops. We initially ferment it in a foudre or stainless tank with our mixed culture, then age it in neutral oak barrels for about eight to fourteen months. We then create a blend and referment it with about four pounds per gallon of cherries for about four weeks. Finally, the beer is naturally conditioned through refermentation in bottles and kegs.

Montmorency vs. Balaton Blend 4 is 6.1 percent alcohol by volume, 1.004 specific gravity (1 degree Plato), 9 IBU, and 3.4 pH. It was packaged on May 2nd, 2017. It will be released when our tasting room opens this Friday and will be available by the glass and in bottles to go. We have about 3,400 bottles available (500ml/$20) with a bottle limit of two bottles per customer per day. Outside of special events, Montmorency vs. Balaton will only be available at Jester King.
