It was born in a standard steel fermenter, relocated to a 2700 gallon foudre (giant oak tanks used for aging usually wine) where it resided for the past 4 years, and then hand bottled and labeled just for your mouth’s enjoyment. Meet FV 13, Allagash’s first foudre beer, available starting today. This American Wild Ale “is a blend of wild yeast and bacteria, a base beer with lots of malt character, and about four years of patience. The finished beer is copper in color, with an aroma of cherries and caramel. The flavor is a blend of sweet and tart, with notes of fruit and caramelized sugar.”
Limited quantities of FV 13 will be available in limited quantities to Allagash’s entire distribution area.
