COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The art of creating the perfect fruited sour ale starts with the barrels. As sour beer ages in barrels, each cask displays unique traits: bright fruit flavors, intoxicating aromas, and clean sour character. We selected our favorite Dogpatch Sour barrels, a Flanders red-inspired ale, and added a small mountain of blackcurrants. Inside the barrel secondary fermentation kicks off as the fruit and beer merge into one. The resulting barrel-aged ale is deep burgundy in color, laced with complex sourness, and rich in currant flavor. Pair this crimson ale with grilled venison, duck leg confit, and summer fruit marzipan tarts

Lothore (649) - California, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Pours a deep purplish red hue with little to no head. Deep, dark fruit in the nose: blackberry, currant, raisin. Taste is currant, raisin, fig followed by a wave of tart berry that lingers n the tongue. Medium bodied with medium/ low carbonation. Very drinkable and a good addition to the dogpatch series.

3.4
JBPortland (1582) - Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2017
375ml bottle pours murky voilet red with a few bubbles, no head. Nose and taste are high acidity, acetone, musty basement, red grape, wine, berry. Lacking real carbonation which leaves the mouthfeel flabby, finishes with some fruit juice sweetness and very high acidity. This one is a miss.
