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.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with a light tan head. Sour, chalky aroma. Oaky and creamy. Lightly tart and fruity. Very oaky, woody and resinous with slight barn yard funk. Dry finish. A bit chalky. Not bad.

Bottle courtesy of jale. Served in a Savor snifter. Pours a nice golden color with a white head and a touch of lacing as it moves slowly down the glass. Aroma is quite nice and complex. There is some definite sourness along with some lemon zest, funk, and a great mount of mixed barrel character. I would say that the win notes are the most prevalent, but everything gets a turn. Some light stone-fruit character eventually emerges as well. The taste is not quite as good as the nose. Some of the sublties are less pronounced and the acidic and funky portions of the brew come more to the front, though this still tastes quite good. The feel is likewise well above par with a nice lactic character and a beautiful finish. This is a really nice beer to finish off toward the end of the night. Thanks again, Jim.

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. Averys Barrel Aged Series is dead to me.
