Sour Ale | 750ml | ABV 7.4%
Gin-barrel aged ale w/ smoked malt, juniper, & sweet gale.
Viking Metal is Jester King's rendition of an ancient Swedish farmhouse ale called Gotlandsdricka, which was aged in Old Tom gin barrels for several months with wild yeast and souring bacteria. Gotlandsdricka was brewed with birchwood smoked malt (smoked in house), juniper and Myrica gale. After primary fermentation with farmhouse yeast, the beer is racked to oak barrels previously containing Old Tom gin and inoculated with mature barrel aged beer, containing wild yeast and souring bacteria. After seven months of oak fermentation and maturation, the barrels are blended and the beer naturally conditioned for an additional six weeks prior to release.
