Noticing that our private cellar bottle stock of sour ale was fast dwindling, we decided to blend a very small batch from five of our finest barrels to produce this, No. 5 in our Barrel-Aged Series. Brewery release only. 60 cases shared. 27 hoarded. This beer consists of: 37% Ale aged in Cabernet Savignon barrels, 25% Ale aged in Chardonnay barrels, 21% Ale aged in Port barrels and 17% Ale aged in Zinfandel barrels. It measures at 9.91% ABV and will be sold in single 12 oz. single bottles. “Quinquepartite” translates to “divided into or composed of five parts.” It is slightly less saucy than the name, “Dupuceleuse,” chosen for #4 in the set.

Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2, in an amazing vertical of Avery BA sours, thank you! Clear deep amber color with a slight reddish tint, off white head. Aroma of sour cherries, plums, light dust. Taste is sour and tart berries, cherries, plums. Delicious.

HonusWagner (1607) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Acquired in trade as an extra, years ago. Very strange beer with lots of different -bal flavors going on, some sweetness, a hint of vanilla, a little spicy, fruity, crazy beer overall, frenetic but good.

djd07 (3879) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk and sour fruit, oak. Thin mouthfeel with tart cherry and light lactic acid, oak, easy to drink, very good.

HonkeyBra (3523) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Rating from notes. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is tart with lemon, barnyard, and wet oak notes. Touches of barrel, some cabernet notes. Flavor is funk and dry, lots of tart and vinous notes, some umami and wine sweetness. There are touches of sour, lots of barrel character. Medium bodied with a slick texture, finishes somewhat lactic. Nice beer.

Westmeister (1830) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2013
All of the first 10 from the series were shared by craftbeerdesign. Best of the bunch in my opinion. Partily clear orange with some floaties. Funky, barnyard nose, tart berries. Taste is very tart, big tannic, funky, barnyard. The most wild/funky of the bunch which maybe why this was the clear winner for me. Just awesome stuff here.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
12 oz. bottle, sent from aplusbreaks (thanks a lot, Austin), pours a cloudy, murky rusted red with a small beige head. Nose is barrel heavy, with loads of red wine, white wine, port, and sour berries Flavour is very complex, characterized by pronounced dryness and wildness, with loads of dry red and white wine barrels above all; there’s a feint nail polish quality too that’s not necessarily bad, with medium tartness. Very complex and well-designed blend here. Excellent.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Light sour nose with lactose. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Mildly sour. A little creamy white wine turning mildly sour. Not really getting any Port wine which is a pity. But this is a nice white wine barrel sour.
