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 – home of the fabled sour red. Our La Folie emulates the spontaneous fermentation beers of Peter’s beloved Flanders with sour apple notes, a dry effervescence, and earthy undertones.

One of my first sours back in the day. Still real good. Red brown with disappearing head. Nose of apple, vinegar, and citrus. Super sourness at front gives way to sweeter, sugary finish. Green apple all the way. Lighter mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Good stuff.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 24, 2013
22oz bottle. Murky rusty brown with a spotty light beige head. Aroma of musty wet wood, malt vinegar, cherries and light fruit. Flavor is fairly tart upfront with sour vinegar, light caramel malt and a dry alcohol. Medium to light body with a dry mouth feel. Have had this one numerous times, always a nice beer if your in the mood.

On tap at Naja?s. Reddish-brown with little head and no lacing. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, and wood. Taste is similar with not too much puckering sourness, moderate carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, and a dry finish.
