Allagash FV 13 (foudre aged wild ale) resurfaces

Allagash FV 13

Allagash FV 13 has returned to shelves once again this month.

A Belgian-style golden ale is the base for Allagash FV 13. The beer is fermented in stainless steel with the brewery’s epic house yeast, then transferred to a 2,700 gallon French oak foudre (exactly like the one on the label).

What is even more unique about FV 13, is that a portion of the previous batch of this beer is used to to inoculate the new edition. A little bit of the old makes the new.

The flavor blends sweet and tart with notes of grapefruit and raspberry, and finishes with a cleansing bitterness.

Allagash FV 13 is a 375ml bottle release. This beer takes a nearly 4 years to brew and condition before public release.
