Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

4.5/5  rDev +4.9%

A: Pours a nice clear valentines day red, with a good transparency, a nice redish white head at the top that left some nice lacing around the glass.

S: A lot of cherry, a lot! Some alcohol scent as well coming through and some caramel on the tail end.

T: Pretty sour cherry flavor up front backed by some roasted malts notes and some booze as well.

M: Medium bodied, warming, light carbonation.

O: Sweet and sour, just like I like it, this brew was aged for about a year so the flavors settled a little but the booze was very present. A good beer, fruitful.
