COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dogpatch Grand Cru blends a Flanders red-style sour ale with red wine grapes to craft something truly unique. We layered California-grown Zinfandel, Syrah, Tannat, Petite Sirah, and Tempranillo grapes with a special imperial version of our Dogpatch Sour ale, combining the best characteristics of the beer and wine worlds.

Tannic red wine notes mingle with complex sour yeast flavors and French oak barrel character to create an exceptionally original new brew. Pair with beer-braised beef dishes and savor on special occasions.

750ml bottle from High Point. Pours a hazy copper with weak tan head. Aroma is acidic, very fruity with lots of cherry jam notes, some vanilla and barrel notes. Taste is pretty the same with moderate to level acidity. Very sour, but it is good, though.

Dark amber color with red shades, hazy. Interesting aroma; there is oak barrel (sweet vanilla), red wine, cherries, and hints of acetone. Good body strength, suitable for supporting the strong acidity; cherry juice, young red wine, wood, some acetone notes.
Would be better without the acetone, but its a very good beer.

mathieuc (3791) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
Pours a clear red with a small white rim that leaves low lacing. Nose is of grapes, burnt wood, balsamic and very light acetone. Taste is quite tart and puckering with more of the grapey vinegar. Body is moderately light, carbonation moderate and it feels vinous in the tannic sense. I enjoyed it good.
