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.

I had this on tap at When Pigs Fly, initially at a beer dinner, then later for a more in depth tasting.

In a snifter the beer was the color of a dirty penny with a small tan head. There was a little bit of lace.

Aroma was tart and fruity, and vinous.

Great taste. Sour apple and red wine. A little vanilla.

This beer was tart and sour and dry. The alcohol was well-hidden.

I hope this stays in the lineup for a while.
