COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Folie Wood-Aged Biere, is our original wood-conditioned beer, resting in French Oak barrels between one and three years before being hand bottled, numbered and corked for your enjoyment. Brewmaster, Peter Bouckaert, came to us from Rodenbach Ė home of the fabled sour red. Our La Folie emulates the spontaneous fermentation beers of Peterís beloved Flanders with sour apple notes, a dry effervescence, and earthy undertones.

Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Dark amber color, hazy, with compact head. The aroma is a bit sour and fruity, but nice. The mouthfeel is dry and violently acidic, lemony, with traces of red grapes, raspberry, vinegar.
Too much sourness, and I canít find elegance in this one.

Incredible! Great fruity smell that has a wine like quality. Also looks like a brown/red wine more than a beer. Only bitch is the tartness, but I kinda like that too...

Iíve never really been in to sours, until now. I love the complexity and the apple aftertaste. La Folie opened up a new genre of beers for me.

Tap. Definitely sour. Canít say I nit ant "brown" flavor but it is a hazy mahogany. Very sweet aroma. Considering its rating, I expected more.

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark mahogany with very little head. Aromas of wet wood, sugary raisins, tobacco, and vinegar. Flavors of sour cherries, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and citrus. Quite smooth for a sour though more of an Oud Bruin than a standard Rodenbach.

I had the 2013 La Folie. This is a great brown/red sour. Reminds me of Wicked Weedís Oblivion. I really pick up the sour apples and has a perfect finish.

Mahogany pour with a creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, tart cherries, tart apple and booty hole funk. Taste is tart cherry pie, armpit cheese and hella funky toe jam citrus.

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2014
This is a situation where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The aroma is vinous, grapey and sour. The beer itself is very sour, earthy, medium sweet with some tongue-curling astringency. Cood carbo, twangy. Unripe fruit and tannic notes. On tap, Baby Proof.
