Boulevard Foeder Projekt #1

Formerly brewed at Boulevard Brewing Company (Duvel-Moortgat)
Kansas City, Missouri USA
6.9% Sour/Wild Ale | 38 Ratings | Special Release |
October 21, 2013 This week marks the first release in an exciting new series of beers from Boulevard Brewing Co. Foeder Projekt #1, a draft only wood aged sour beer, will show up in bars and restaurants in the Kansas City area. At just under 7% ABV, Foeder Projekt #1 is best described as a wood aged sour. The base beer spent six months in a foeder at our Smokestack Series 750 ml bottling facility.
The beer transported to the foeder was, to be quite frank, a fairly uninteresting beer at the time of transfer. We had brewed a golden colored sour ale with the intention of aging it in the foeder to be blended into a future Love Child beer, our award winning series of sour beers. As with all of our projects, we tasted the beer as it journeyed down the path to sour deliciousness. It was at one of these stops that we realized this beer was pretty damn awesome just as it was. We called a brewers meeting to taste other barrel aged projects and everyone fell in love with the beer from the foeder so we decided to pull off some of the beer and keg it by hand.
