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.

bytemesis (9327) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear deep ruby, small pinkish white head, dissipates pretty quickly, some lacing. Aroma has a fair bit of acetone up front, vinous, oaky, musty, red wine, vanilla. Acetone starts to fade with time, but some harshness remains. Flavor is light tart, light plus funk, vinous, oaky, NPR. Medium body, low carbonation. Huh, not as good as I was expecting.

Scopey (15877) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Keg at BD Aberdeen. It pours hazy deep ruby with with a small white head. The aroma is juicy, jammy, big red wine character, jammy, berry skin, vanilla and oak. The taste is dry, crisp, bitter, vinous, red berry, blueberry skin, blackberry, earthy, musty funk, bright acidity, wood, granny smith apple, sherbet and tannin with a drying finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Pretty much the red wine equivalent of beer. Perhaps a touch hit, but very good fun.

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 it’s a very good beer.

Pours orange/raspberrie. Aroma is of acidity, fruits, some malts. Taste is of acidity, fruits, wood. Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation. Astringent. Overall: Good stuff, slightly too acetic. Not balanced.

Style et résumé: Rouge des Flandres


Comment: Dégustation Manseau Automne 2016, Merci Tommy et les autres.


Portrait: Un liquide brun rouge sans mousse. Un nez qui transpire l’acidité, le vinaigre et le vin rouge, le tout sur un bois omniprésent. La bouche est tout aussi acide, ça brûle tant c’est vinaigrée. Il y a du vin rouge avec une touche de bois. Pas pour moi.


Note: 5+/10

mathieuc (4000) - Québec, 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.
