Portland, Maine USA
Style: Sour/Wild Ale | Ratings: 165 | Alcohol: 8.9%
Brewed with wild yeast and bacteria. Fermented and aged 4 years ins a single oak foudre.
FV 13 marks our first venture into the world of foudre beers. Foudres are giant oak tanks used for aging (this one holds 2700 gallons.) FV 13 is a blend of wild yeast and bacteria, a base beer with lots of malt character, and about four years of patience. The finished beer is copper in color, with an aroma of cherries and caramel. The flavor is a blend of sweet and tart, with notes of fruit and caramelized sugar. The full mouthfeel gives way to a tart, mouth drying finish.
