Jester King Brewery (Austin, Texas) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Provenance Black Lime on Thursday, August 22.
Arriving as the next installment in Jester King’s citrus-themed series, Provenance Black Lime (5.6% ABV) is a Farmhouse Ale that incorporates black limes in the boil of “a similar [base beer] to previous Provenance iterations.” This approach produces a beer that is “deeper in color, with more caramel notes and more body” than past Provenance releases.
“We took limes from G&S Orchards and sliced them into ¼ inch disks, then dehydrated those disks at 140 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-10 days. The process is a slow caramelization of the sugars within the fruit as well as enzymatic oxidation of the flesh. This process definitely changes the flavor to something still reminiscent of the original fruit but has a distinct caramel quality, elevated acidity, and tea-like character.”
– Damien Brockway, Jester King Executive Chef

This Limited Release offering will be available in 750ml bottles for the cost of $13 each (limit of two (2) bottles per person per day). Provenance Black Lime will not see distribution. Prost!
