Jester King Moderne Dansk 2019 (Flanders Red Ale - Single x 12.7 oz.)
Flanders Red Ale / Texas / 7.1%
Wild ale aged in Danish cherry wine barrels re-fermented with Danish Stevnsbær cherry juice!
Moderne Dansk was inspired by one of Jester King’s favorite wineries in the world -- Frederiksdal Kirsebærvin in Harpelunde, Denmark. Frederiksdal specializes in making beautiful wines from Danish Stevnsbær cherries. Jester King has been lucky to carry their wines in their tasting room and call them friends for several years.
Jester King procured oak barrels previously containing their wine, as well as juice from Stevnsbær cherries. They brewed beer with well water, local grain and a blend of fresh and aged hops, and fermented it with their mixed culture of brewers’ yeast and native yeast and bacteria. They then aged the beer in cherry wine barrels for about a year before re-fermenting it with Stevnsbær cherry juice. It was then naturally re-fermented in bottles and kegs.
Moderne Dansk is a beautiful melding of the terroir from Frederiksdal and Jester King!
