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.

Bottle @ WWT. Aroma is big tangy fruity malt and hops with notes of saison adn nelson sauvin. Flavour is tangy sweaty silty sourness, the hops don’t blend with the sourness imho. Faint note of vomit.
