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.

Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is lemony and yeasty. Taste starts sour up-front, dry and lemony with some hops in the background. Light body with high effervescence, very dry. Quite nice, sour, dry but also hoppy in the background.

LinusStick (3252) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Delicious sour beer. Aroma was good, but worried me. Sour malt and not much else. Pour was a hazy medium orange with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was better than the aroma. Sour, with mouth puckering vinegar and yeast. Finish was pretty quick and didn’t linger, which was a little disappointing, but still a delicious complex sour beer. Medium carbonation.

A great beer, just had the 2013 against the 2015 and a little bottle age on this beer really let it shine! A treat for sure.

Well there’s nothin I don’t like no better than a fine sour ale... and it’s great that the new world folks are finall taking to the style. I can recall my first encounters with sour ales, on the hills of the Parisian steppes some years ago, watching fireworks with a backpack of fine Belgians as well as a decent glass to go with them. Nice to know the lager fiends of the world are finally coming around to the finer edge of the beer world, eh? So anyways it pours reasonably well like a fruit lager with modest carbonation and very little head, not exciting really. The aroma is fruitiness like an IPA but no complexity, nothing like what a good ol’ sour ale should smell like, but if you sniff deeply you’ll start to notice lambic notes and other mementos of those times you got waste on this style in Brussels like I did. The flavour is slightly sour but not prominent enough - there are hints of it here, and I wonder if the temperature was too low at 4.8 celcius, perhaps this is more of a room temperature brew - but it has some decent sour notes, though nothing too exciting nor complex to bring it out onto the world stage. Nonetheless good points for a decent sour ale on this continent, damn I do miss them, wish more people would appreciate the nuances of the darker sour ales that make life in Europe as palatable as it is, terrorists and all.
