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 29-Nov-12 / Released February 2013

375 mL bottle poured into snifter glass on 22-Mar-13.

Aroma is very gueuze-like. Vinegary tartness with some plum / apple / peach combo, all grounded in oak barrel depth. Flavors have cherry and vanilla notes.

Medium to full carbo that gets really sprite as you swallow. Dry finish.

Reminds me a lot of Consecration without the red wine presence. It's almost got a touch of it though somehow.
