Jester King Releasing 2017 Synthesis Analogous 8/11

imageFrom Jester King:

This Friday at 4pm is our second-ever release of Synthesis Analogous — our blend of La Vie en Rose & Grim Harvest aged in Oloroso sherry barrels!

As many of you know by now, we’re fond of aging our beer on “spent” fruit. This is the leftover fruit from one of our barrel-aged fruit refermentations like Colour Five or Nocturn Chrysalis. Long ago, we felt this spent fruit still had plenty of character, so we aged a 2nd beer on it. We were happy with the results, which led to the creation of beers like La Vie en Rose (raspberries), Detritivore (cherries), Grim Harvest (blackberries), and Demi-Tone (blueberries). Our Head Brewer Averie Swanson had the idea of taking La Vie en Rose, blending it with what we now call Grim Harvest, and aging the blend in an Oloroso sherry barrel. The result was Synthesis Analogous, which
we’ve only released once before.

This year’s release of Synthesis Analogous is a blend of 2016 La Vie en Rose and 2016 Grim Harvest aged in Oloroso sherry barrels for about a year! It was blended and bottled in June of 2017. At the time of bottling, it was 6.7% alcohol by volume, 11 IBU, 3.4 pH, and had a finishing gravity of 0.999 (-0.3 degrees Plato). It will be released on Friday, August 11th at 4pm at Jester King. 2017 Synthesis Analogous will be available by the glass and at bottles to go. We only have about 700 bottles available (750ml x $24) with a bottle limit of one per customer per day. Outside of special events, Synthesis Analogous will only be available at Jester King.

We’re excited to have Synthesis Analogous back after a few year hiatus! We hope you enjoy it!
