COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of fruity hops, earthy light funk, some lemon and pale grain Flavor similar, great blend of.mild butting acidity and fresh cut.hops. Great refreshing stuff.

From the start on tap at the magic tree this beer rocks. Nice perfumy tart aroma. Clear pale yellow. Perhaps a slight haze. Good cutting co2 sizzle. Taste is oh so yummy. Really like this stuff, wild effects and all. A very good friendly tart tasty brew. easy going and pleasant on the tongue. Not over the top in vinegar but certainly lets you know its sour. Nice job. Lovely beer experience. Ever so slight bitterness on the finish.

The tart palate coupled with a taste that isn't too sweet makes this a nice gem of a beer. There's a sourness that lingers in a good way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy red yellow. Small white head. Well balanced sour. Doesn't over power. Cherries, grapes, oranges. Well done.

On tap at Longman and Eagle in Chicago. I don’t know how I’ve never had this, but I haven’t. Not too sour at all...a nice citrus fruit tartness but definitely mellowed from the barreling. Wasn’t so sour as to ruin my palate for the evening, which was nice. Balanced.

Draft - Tart white grape and some grassy notes. Hay gold with a small white head. Tart and funky grape, citrus and light vinegar notes. Tart and still pretty light.

Hoppy fruity notes hit the nose hard. Clear tan with off white thin head. Tastes of tart cherry. Lip smackingly sour. Lingers on the palette but makes you want another taste.

Golden light orange clear pour with a soapy head that quickly dissipates. Sniffs of a interesting peachy mixture of wood and fruity hop. Wow the flavor is amazing. Sour and fruity with just the hint of hops on the finish. Oily mouthfeel. What an amazing beer.
