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.

Incredibly delicious sour ale from Allagash!
A: Clean and a pale amber, clear with stupendous carbonation
S: Berries, citrus and honey
T: Floral grasslands of meadows with many flowers and wild sour fruits growing, pollenated constantly by some of the hardest working bees I can imagine. I'll tell ya, these be some bees.
M: Crisp as can be, super sour, yet somehow not overwhelmingly sour. Like an orange or lemon
O: One of the better special releases I have ever had. Well worth the fifteen bucks. Thank you Allagash for a balls to the walls American sour alike none other before it. Bien sur le foudre!!!
