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.

Slight hazy gold pour. Aroma cheese bretta funk grass citrus. Tastes sweet tarts, butter, very sour, oak wood. Drying but not too dry. Creamy nectarines, minerals. Really grows hop flavor as it warms.

Slightly hazy copper, nice white head. Fruity, cherry-like aroma. Flavor is a lot of lemon and cherry, some vinegar, and some pine. Pretty tasty!

umich03jm (2057) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a small ring. Aroma is very herbal with some peaches, flowers and light sour fruit funk. Tastes light to moderate sour. Very herbal and woodsy. Sour lemon and peaches finish it out. Moderately acidic. Dry, white wine finish. Not as good as I was hoping for. Odd to have so much herbal flavor with the sour fruit.

cpetrone84 (1450) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Pour is mostly transparent golden amber with lots of off white head. Nose is heavily resinous hop with citrus notes and a bit of candied sugar and light nights of bread crust and grain. Taste has a bit more grain up front, gets resinous, lots of hops, moderate sourness, a bit bitter in back, light acidity, candied sugar mid palate, citrus and some leathery brett notes. Medium body, a bit syrupy, decent carb.

This is a great tart tasting beer, really smooth on the first sip and then that tart fruit, yeast taste gets you on the swallow and lingers! Great Sour, beautiful golden blonde look, great beer.

Pours luminous orange with a small white ring. Smells floral and citrus. Taste is sour with some tropical fruit flavors. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith - Le Terroir (2014) finishes with a lingering fruitiness.
