Jester King, of Austin, Texas are one of the one of the legends of the US mixed fermentation scene and one of the best sour breweries in the world.
Citrus Froot Direct is a Triple Dry Hopped Farmhouse IPA with Texas Dancy Mandarins & Hamlin Oranges! Jester King brewed a dextrinous wort with raw wheat and flaked oats over a base of TexMalt San Jacinto 2-Row and Wildfire Pale Malt. They then pitched their mixed culture in stainless steel with a bio-trans dry hop of Ekuanot and Amarillo. The beer was then refermented the beer with fresh, hand-juiced Dancy Mandarins & Hamlin Oranges from Orange Blossom Farm in Utopia, Texas west of San Antonio. The brewers then dry hopped the beer two more times with Ekuanot and Sabro cryo before adding the hand-processed zest from the mandarins and oranges! 100% naturally conditioned in bottles and kegs.
Our brewing team put a lot of love into this beer by hand-processing 800 pounds of locally grown Texas citrus! This ode to Texas citrus has notes of Orangina, mimosa, honeysuckle, orange blossom perfume and Lacto-fermented orange marmalade.
