Jelly King (Strawberry Rhubarb)
DRY-HOPPED SOUR W/ STRAWBERRY AND RHUBARB
He is a ruler, an overlord, a top dog, a crowned head. In the richly varied domain of prokaryotic microorganisms, Jelly King reigns supreme.
Rather than choosing between sour or hoppy, we decided to create a beer that would be both at the same time. Showcasing the aromatic benefits of a generous dry hop (Citra, Amarillo, and Cascade), harnessing the pleasing acidity of lactic acid producing bacteria (we use a 5-strain house blend), and coming to a bottle near you without a pesky 2 year slumber in oak, Jelly King is the fermented embodiment of having your cake and eating it too.
This limited edition Jelly King variant was conditioned on loads of strawberry and rhubarb purée.
What it smells like, what it tastes like, what it looks like: Restrained bitterness contributed by fruit rather than hops, juicy aromatics, and a dry body with notes of strawberry pie, rhubarb jam, and citrusy hops. You're welcome.
