Odell introduces Jaunt, an Oak Aged Ale brewed with Riesling Grapes
Jaunt, an Oak Aged Ale brewed by Odell Brewing - Fort Collins, Colorado
just released its newest Cellar Series beer, Jaunt, an oak aged ale brewed
with the juice of Colorado Riesling grapes.
“We are fortunate enough to live in an agriculturally diverse state,” said
Eli Kolodny, QA/QC manager for Odell Brewing. “This access that Colorado
provides, allowed us to get locally sourced Riesling grapes from the Western
Jaunt is an ale
brewed with a healthy dose of wheat and Pilsner malts giving the beer body as
well as a crisp finish to backbone. It is lightly hopped and fermented with the
brewery’s house ale yeast. After primary fermentation, the beer was transferred
into a stainless fermentor with light and medium toast oak staves suspended in
it. At that point, the Riesling grape juice was blended in. The Riesling grapes
add a distinct light tree fruit note and a delicate aroma of perfumed
honeysuckle with a touch of acidity to the finish.
The beer matured on oak staves through secondary fermentation until it reached
the target oak character with hints of light vanilla, almond, and stone fruit.
Packaged on our 750mL line, Jaunt is 100% bottle conditioned and meant to be
consumed fresh and cool.
