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 @ home, courtesy of ratman. HUGE thanks! Red tinted orange appearance with a fairly large, light orange colored head. Medium sour, slightly acidic, a bit vinous nose with some red fruity esters. Dry, medium sour, red fruity, grape, tart cherry flavor with a tart, dry, slightly fruity finish. Fairly mellow sour ale with definite dry, vinous notes.

Smells like a middle aged woman was shopping in the tire section of Costco and accidentally dropped her bottle of heavily oaked California chard in the aisle. Weird lightly sweet-tart flavor. Fuck this shit. Avery’s Barrel Aged Series is dead to me.

Cloudy red pour with a sparkling appearence. Aroma of fruit and wood. A dry sour cherry taste, reminds me of a wine. Good brew.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2012 Shared bottle at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Smell is balsamic vinegar, very sour and rich. Taste is a sour sherbet, hints of peach. Slightly sweet, acidic aftertaste. Very nice.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2010. Poured a pinkish orange with little white head. Nice citric, sour and yeast nose. Flavor is citrus fruits, with a touch of wine-y background. The Brett in this just rocks.
