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.

Lot of cherry notes. The nose was a lot like chardonnay and the taste was a little sweet and dry, almost wine-like.

A: Pours a murky dark orange color. Lots of carbonation. Effervescent. Good half finger of right bubbles head. Sticks around a while. Leaving some lacing sheeting.

S: Balsamic vinegar. Tart dark cherries. Oak. Touch of vanilla. Tannic wine-like dryness. Earth.

T: Tart cherry and balsamic up front. Tannic dryness for sure. Mid palate you do really taste that oak with hints of vanilla and wood. Finish is fairly dry but not entirely bone dry.

M: Medium bodied. Some creaminess mid palate.
