BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bellwoods Brewery

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 version includes a large dose of three tropical fruits that we hold near and dear to our hearts - adding explosive aromas and flavours of tropical fruit and a deep hazy orange hue.

A 500ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated quickly and left pretty much no lacing.

Aroma: Jello fruits, tart, guava, passionfruit, mango with light grapefruit zest and ginger.

Taste: Sour, tart and juicy. Guava, passionfruit, grass, light grapefruit zest and citrus peel.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Another great Jelly King variant from Bellwoods. I’m loving this dry hopping and addition of fruits to the base Jelly King. Just so refreshing.

Another in the Jelly King series, and another success. I find the mango gets a little lost in the mix in this one. It's the passionfruit that shines, with the guava playing a strong rhythm guitar to back it up.

Well worth a drink,I'd recommend this to anyone.

The regular version is always better than the fruit added ones, but when compared to the fruit versions, this one compares very nicely. Very smooth and juicy, a hugely tropical flavour.

at the source. fresh aromas of fruit. yhe jelly king sourness up front with the fruit peeking out in the finish. pretty pretty good sipper providing you like sour. souring somewhat vinegar as opposed to something more complex.thick looking.
