Le Terroir is a French term meaning ‘Of the Earth.’ Used to reference the environmental conditional that affect the brew, we like to think about the terroir of our foeders. These wooden barrels age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity and vibrations. The terroir of New Belgium, so to speak. Add in another variable by dry-hopping with peachy, mango-like Amarillo hops, and we created a beer that changes every time we brew it.

BreWedge (465) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
1 pint, 6 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a relatively small head. Strong fruity esters, sour, and some wood. Tastes are primarily zesty orange. Strong acidic bite on the pallet, crisp carbonation, and a medium woody finish. A sipping beer for sure but a nice pic for a hot day. Also hides the 7.5% abv very well.

electrotype (605) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Au nez je trouve ça très, très attirant. C’est fruité et chargé. Aucun problème de personnalité ici... En bouche c’est sûre et très concentré. Je suis un peu déçu: ce n’est pas mauvais, mais ça manque clairement de finesse. C’est très intense comme offrande et on pourrait espérer plus de subtilité. C’est comme un cocktail aux pêches qui aurait été évaporé pour le concentrer.

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2016
Fat på Beer Ditch Malmö. Smak och doft av krusbär, vita vinbär, örter, grapefrukt, stall, citrus, trä, jord med toner av sura äpplen. Fruktig, frisk, funkig, fin syrlighet, lagom sötma och bra beska. Fina smaker i god balans, mycket gott!

fordest (2373) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2016
Draft at the Quad Alehouse for my birthday. Lots of sour on the nose and the tongue. Acidic and delightful. I got lots of pear and touches of grapefruit. Good stuff.

Keg at Knäppingen, Norrköping, Sweden. Cloudy deep golden, small head. Acetic peach aroma. Sweet and sour with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Intensely acetic and fruity. Peachy, citrusy hops. Lemon juice concentrate. Peppery bitter finish. More bold than refined. Too much juice concentrate.

drpimento (2966) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2016
I don’t pick up much in the hop department per se, but the rest of it- huge fruity sourness, with a malt backbone is great. Aroma has a bit of perfume that slightly carries over into flavor. Not a session, but pretty good stuff.
