It pours a ruby red with a reddish brown head. There are aromas of sour fruit. notes of apples, a bit of wood for the finish. It has a sour, tart taste with fruit and earthen elements and wood flavoring. The carbonation adds a lively pop to it on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap: The first true "sour" beer Iíve ever had. Deep copper, ruby-red hybrid color with a mild haze. Khaki head with decent retention leaves minimal lacing behind. Aroma full of tart apples, cherry, strawberry, lemon, sweet-tarts, wet-wood, light critter funk, & some mild vinegar. Very tart & sour up front on the tongue; puckering. Full of under-ripe strawberry, green apple, sour cherries, vinegar, & other tart berries. Wild yeast, almost a touch of yogurt in the back-end with moderate acidity & some acetic burn. Dry, sour & woody oak finish. Ever since I had this on tap years ago, I buy bottles every year it comes out. Great beer to have around. La Folie is a classic.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 No doubt about it, this shit is SOUR. The aroma of citric acid, overripe fruit, and faint vinegar clues you into the liquid Warhead youíre about to taste. First, letís talk about the appearance. La Folie is more on the brown side of mahogany. The body is effervescent and the head is fizzy. Now, we can dive into the taste. Holy hell. La Folieís sourness somehow manages to be complex and intense, Yet, itís so damn intriguing that you have no choice but to come back for more. Pungent vinegar, tart berry (raspberry and cranberry), tangy apple, vinous notes, lemon zest, and an earthy sourness from the yeast. For the uninitiated, La Folie will be beguiling. For folks who love sour, funky brews, La Folie is a wonder.

Lots of lemon juice and vinegar with subtle notes of cherries and oak. Glad to have tried this when I did. I donít think I wouldíve liked it early on in my beer drinking days.

2014 bomber. This beer comes at you in waves. Tart, cherry nose with malt in the background. Seriously sour as the bottle says. Cherry tart gives way to wheat bread sweetness, which in turn fades quietly into dry acidity.
