Hair Of The Dog & De Proef Collaboration Beer
Posted Sunday, March 4th, 2012 by James Kitchens

(Seattle, WA) - We get an update on a Hair Of The Dog and De Proef collaboration from an unlikely source (the Facebook page of Alan Shapiro of SBS Imports). This update is specifically about the upcoming collaboration called Flanders Fred. According to the label text, it is the "sixth edition of the De Proef Brewmaster's Collaboration Series". The brew date is Monday, March 5th. We will watch for release information. More details are below...

From the Alan Shapiro Facebook post:

"Collaboration brew day with Alan Sprints is Monday!"

From the label:

"The sixth edition of the De Proef Brewmaster's Collaboration Series is our first blended beer. Legendary brewer Alan Sprints of Hair Of The Dog joins Dirk Naudts at De Proef to create this unique bottle conditioned beer. Flanders Fred is a blend of Flanders-sourced lambic with a collaboratively-brewed version of the famous Hair Of The Dog Fred.

The result is a deep golden ale topped with a creamy off white head. The nose is complex with notes of lemon, pine, tropical fruits and spice. The palate is rich and layered with toffee, apricot and almond, balanced by some green apple, a hoppy bitterness and barnyard funk.

Please enjoy this Flanders Fred with food and friends. This beer should pair very well with many cheeses, roasted vegetables and grilled meats. We believe this bottle will continue to evolve beautifully over the next few years, adding a subtle blending of the flavors.

Cheers from Portland and Flanders!

Allan & Dirk"
