Jester King Brewery Bière de Blanc du Bois

What the brewers say

“To make Bière de Blanc du Bois, Texas-grown Blanc du Bois grapes were added to mature barrel-aged sour beer and refermented to dryness. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100 percent bottle-conditioned.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nice white-grape notes with tart,_ Brett-_like notes. Juicy fruit character. Some spicy earthy aromas. A slight lactic aroma mixes with a wonderful oak note—wine and mint and very herbal. As it warms, there is a very slight hint of alcohol.”

Flavor: “Moderate tartness up front with a mix of tart grapefruit, tropical fruit, and white-grape notes. The linger starts with the tartness and then diminishes into a wonderful grape character that is semisweet and very pleasant. The tartness is nice and helps this beer from becoming too sweet. The beer finishes clean with nice grape notes.”

Overall: “This beer has a great combination of grapes and tartness; a good sweetness to balance both creates a wonderful linger that would be a great final taste to a dinner. The fruit is well-balanced with the acidity. Nice complexities blend well together.”
