Beer added by: Jason on 01-09-2013

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.

Bottled: 12/21/2012
Russian River Tulip

A: Hazy amber/red with a big, two finger white foam head.

S: Very Flanders Red / wine like sweetness on the nose. There is a funkyness that mingles with some cherry sweetness. Smells like its gonna be sweet and tart.

T: Tasted alot like I thought it was going to taste. Alot of Flanders like delicate tartness with a distinct cherry. I feel like this has alot of the same layers a Rodenbach classic has, maybe a little more with a little more time in the bottle. Kinda surprised it is 8.9% abv, not picking up any heat or alcohol flavors.

M: Smelled and tasted like there was alot of leftover sugar but finished pretty dry so thats probably just a perceived sweetness.

O: Really liked what I got out of this, nice Flanders type flavors with a mellow funkyness layered in there. The cherry / wine nose and flavors were great for not having added anything like that. I hope eventually the price comes down, I would definitely we willing to pay $12-14 for a 750ml, but for a 375ml it feels kinda steep.
