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.

Just fantastic--its hard to believe no cherries were harmed in the making of this beer. A very agreeable balance between acidity, brett, and maltiness. The best flemish sour I've ever had.

I really enjoyed this beer, very tart with some sweetness of vanilla from the barrel aging, there is some sourness with some earthy notes as well. A very different and unique beer

It's smells like a funky wet sock. But the flavor is outstanding! Has a nice sweet candy flavor that has a great tartness to it.

Bottle. Dark red with an off white head. Aroma is tart dark fruit and funk. Taste adds some tart cherry and cherry skins. Medium sticky mouthfeel and light carb. Very nice.

Bottle. Dark ruby. Sour bite on the aroma with a cherry funk. The taste adds oak barrel and sweet sour malts. Bitter bite on the mouthfeel. Love this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

C&C shared by mcbackus. Aroma is a tart hair raising sour. Pour is brownish red. Taste is initially puckering and tart. Then after a few sips it is much more drinkable. Sourbess stays through out but shows off some amazing malt sweetness. Really good balance of malt and sour.

Bottle share thanks to Mcbackus. Corked and caged, no NB logo on bottle - 2005 or 2006 vintage . Mostly clear, amber color, no head. Big tart aroma, sour, cherry, semisweet, malty, more tartness in aroma. Extremely sour and tart, cherry, very acidic, fruit juice...so good.
