Dexter, MI — Here at Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, seasons are just a state of mind. The sun has shown itself less than a handful of times this year and so we thought we would release our own ray of sunshine, Clementina.
Clementina is bright, effervescent citrus Saison brewed with yuzu and lime peel, pink Himalayan salt, coriander and clementine juice. Small amounts of oak and wheat provide a light, bready body rounded by the refreshing blend of spices.
This batch of Clementina is composed of three 10 barrel batches that were aged in both a 20-barrel oak foeder as well as several toasted oak barrels. Brewed in December and January last winter, Clementina waited in oak for nearly the entire length of 2016, soaking up the warmth and excitement of last summer. It has kept that feeling close for us just waiting for the perfect damp and grey week of February to stave off the mid-winter blues.
Clementina will first be available at our Jolly Pumpkin locations in Dexter, Ann Arbor, Detroit and Traverse City on draft and in bottles, followed by regional limited bottle releases in Florida, Texas, New York, Missouri, and California.
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales was established in 2004 by Ron and Laurie Jeffries in Dexter, Michigan with the focus of producing entirely open fermented and oak aged beer. Combining Belgian brewing methods with the spirit of Aloha, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales has built its reputation on making folks say between drinks – “That’s weird!”
