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.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
The aroma is dry, slightly sour and woody, though still sweet with hints of marcipan. The color is orange-brown and it has a fine beige head though disappearing. The flavor is very woody and sour from the wild fermentation. This is really a good beer. Thanks MartinKubert for bringing this to a sampling night.

omhper (20449) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2004
Bottled. Dark amber. Strong vinegary cherry aroma. Dry and acidic, pleasant rounded mouthfeel. Black cherry juice! Perfect, hardcore rendition of the style. Could perhaps be more complex still, but this is really a great beer!

Bottle shared at ACBS courtesy of Steptin. Cheers James! Clear dark red beer, tiny cream coloured head. Sourish medicinal and Dr Pepper nose. Light dry palate. Taste follows the nose. Very dry finish with a sourish note. Not really my kind of beer but this was alright!

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, 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 can’t find elegance in this one.
