COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle, 10/03/2012. Pours ruby red, generous fluffy head leaving copious lacing. Aroma is oak, earthy mildly tart cherries, apricots, caramel, brett, vinous finish. Taste much more tart but pleasantly so, red fruits and grapes, vinegar, toffee malts mixed to blend with vinous flavor, light funk- lots of good things going on, very complex. Palate is light for the ABV, very drinkable. Nice, really quite good.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Very tart and light vinegar. The oak is subtle and nice with notes of cherry and wine grapes. Another winner from this series of beers.

Ernesto987 (3933) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2012
bottle share at hill farmstead, Very close to the Sui Genesis, a little rougher and very tart. That could be because this beer isnt aged as long. Great stuff.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2011
bottle shared with a generous friend...pours a reddish peach color from a 12oz bottle...minimal white head. aroma of big funk, peach and apricot pits, light sugar, and some awesome zin barreling...very inviting, and absolutely tart, although not overly so. flavor of big oak, white zin, port, dark berry and cherry...funky, tart, peachy finish with all sorts of citrus and zest...perfectly sour with some of the best aging i have noticed in a sour. deep, complex, and altogether one of the nicest american sours i have ever had...superb

330cl bottle at home shared by oj83. This is a great beer that is amazing for the ability for hiding it’s strength! Lots of clover honey but the taste is very hard to define! The colour is golden the palate is slick and the pour produced a healthy head! Great American sour but I wish it was in a 75cl bottle.
