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.

Draft sample. Pours a light golden orange with a sudsy white head. Nose is tart, citrus, tropical fruit... Some tannins. Sour taste, moderate barrel influence. Plenty of pucker. Honestly I was hoping for more peach or mango presence, but overall this was a really solid offering.

Andrew196 (1205) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Aromatically exceptional...sour cherry, sour banana, lemongrass. Cloudy orange with yellow edges, medium frothy head. Taste was a bit less than expected, but only because it was overshadowed by the front end. Sour, bananas, funk, lingering taffy, very thin and dry for the ABV. Very drinkable.

Chalumeaux (684) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Poured from tap at Pizza Rock Vegas hazy light amber pour with a minimal white head. Aromas of sour citrus stone fruit and funk. Taste is similar with a nice crisp finish.

scarletfire65 (1242) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Tasting at Hackney’s Printers Row. Hazy light amber pour. Aroma is sour, citrus, fermented stonefruits, funk. Taste is very sour, cardboard, lemon, cellar, musty, funk. Finishes crisp and sour and surprisingly kind of bright. Good.

ebone1988 (774) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Aroma is sour, pine, floral hop presence, slight funk. Appearance is golden straw, white head. Taste is sour and hoppy, finishing with a weird wheat flavor. Mouthfeel is crisp, nice carbonation, easy drinking. Overall, not too bad!

Draft to taster at Jungle Jim pour light gold with moderate white head. Nose tart sour, light citrus. Taste tart and sour, lemon, light gym sock. Sour continue through the finish. Just not my thing.

Cloudy orange, appears to be a traditional sour. Pours without much head. Hoppy smell with sour cherry. Very good aroma. Not quite as sour as I’d hoped. All in all very good.

BeerViking (3605) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
On tap at Denver airport, murky amber-brown with a thin lacing head. Tart, lemony and earthy aromas. Palate is strongly citric tart, sour apples, some earthy bitterness, more sour lemon and apple in the finish. Resembles a cross between Saison and Lambic, but without the drinkability of either.

Kinz (3625) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Growler from Whole Foods Short Pump. Pours a medium orange amber, nice head. Aroma is stone fruit, peach and apricot, with some caramel accented malts and a pleasant tartness. Flavor matches. Pretty good stuff. The hops are just a bit more bitter than I would have liked, but not bad.

10/8/15. Draft at Criterion. Classic sour. Mild nose and nice balanced bite. Only a hint of wood. Amarillo dries it out but is pretty mellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
