Incredibly delicious sour ale from Allagash!
A: Clean and a pale amber, clear with stupendous carbonation
S: Berries, citrus and honey
T: Floral grasslands of meadows with many flowers and wild sour fruits growing, pollenated constantly by some of the hardest working bees I can imagine. I'll tell ya, these be some bees.
M: Crisp as can be, super sour, yet somehow not overwhelmingly sour. Like an orange or lemon
O: One of the better special releases I have ever had. Well worth the fifteen bucks. Thank you Allagash for a balls to the walls American sour alike none other before it. Bien sur le foudre!!!

First of three corked & caged beers from Brez.
Pours a hazy, honey golden color. A fat fingers worth of white head falls to a ring that leaves behind a few spots of lacing. 4.0
It has a fantastic, complex aroma. Lots of tart fruits, a nice funkiness, leather, apple, wet wood, hints of vanilla, and toffee. I could leave my nose here forever, but I wish to taste her forbidden fruit. 5.0
Funk Yeah! Its' awesomeness spills over to the flavor. Apples, lemons, hard cider, salt, oak, vanilla, toffee, and a nice funky finish. Its' funky tartness is bordering on insanity. 5.0
Medium body, with an ample amount of light prickly carbonation, effervescent... Smooth like Velvet Jones. Very pleasant mouthfeel for a beer this tart. 5.0
A true masterpiece... It is amazing how well its' aroma, taste, and feel fit together. This one is going on my perpetual wants list!
I am guessing its an oak aged sour by Allagash.
And the reveal is... FV13 by Allagash.
Thanks Brez, this is the shit.

A: slightly hazy amber color lots of carbonation streaming up the glass1 finger of an off white very light brown head that goes away after a few moments with a good ammount of lacing
S: very complex lots of funk light oaked with some red wine notes may be from the sherry yeast no alcohol on the nose
T: very tart followed by spicy red wine characters with a touch of vanilla and oak no alcohol on the taste
M: highly carbonated with a very dry finish
O: great beer very complex lots of different flavors well done multiple yeast strains and the oak aging contribute to a great sour ale
