Grandis is our blended old ale. It is blended from various ales matured in oak barrels from several months to three years. This blend has a touch of acidity and is very port like with a hint of fine balsamic.

L - black as the darkest night, little carb with bubbles that fade quickly - unique for a sour tho, I'll give it that
S - some nice barrel-fig-old ale aromas/ port sweet wine and a touch of what I hate to call soy sauce at the end. I love old ales so this is enticing for me never have I had a sour old ale
T - Dang, it's immediately big balsamic and the big time sour abuses the old ale dark fruits, I can still taste some nice barrel/ raisins but its just a bit much on the sour side to get past.
F - acidic, salty vinegar finish
O- Again, unique for sure and I can appreciate the experimental side of this beer, but the styles just clash for a tough pour

Batch 1.

This beer was pretty awful. The nose is straight up soy sauce, the taste is bitter and sour with low carbonation.

Most of this beer met the kitchen sink. It was not enjoyable.
