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.

Bottle. Clear dark gold with little head. Aroma is leafy and fruity hops with dried mango. Taste is similar with a tropical fruit punch sort of thing going on. Thinnish and smooth. Great.

Cirrhosis (1252) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Hazey honey brown with a thick skiff floating on top. Mildly funky aroma with a tart finish in the nose. Sour raspberry and a slightly woody finish. So very dry and crisp. It tingals as I drink. A dark dank funk really shows up when the beer warms. So awesomely sour with out being overpowering.... balance is nicely done. Once again I use to hate this style but brews like this have turned me around. Mmmmmmmmmmmm sour suthers. Almost turns into a dry white wine but not. I love this brew.

Golden orange pour, clear and bright with a small head. Amazing aroma of peach, green apples and a general white wine quality. Taste is superbly sour yet balanced. Light body and carbonation. Not a lot of aftertaste. Very refreshing after working in sun! Got to be in my top ten, maybe top five beers of all time. Spectacular sour!

Thanks to Kraddel! 650 ml. bottle split between us @ Rampkrot. Dark amber, little white bubbles. Nose is sweet funk dried apricots, light mango, apricot pints, light funk, agave, funky caramel, fruity hops, touch agave syrup,… Taste is lots of dried apricots, agave, sweet & sour, light funk mixed in with the sweetness, caramel, huge dried apricot, agave, candy sugar, funky finish, oak vanilla… Caramel body but very easy to drink still. Unique & great mix of hoppy, lightly sour, candy sweet & sweet fruits. Really nice & really unique beer.

kraddel (4490) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2015
pours clear blonde ( very light amber ? ) No real head . Smell is fruity , with a sharp sour aspect, yet completely different than any sour fruitbeers i’ve had ... this one is more like sour candy ... Taste is full , sour sweetness again, strawberry , some cherry . very interesting taste ! i would have gone for less sweet, but the combo here def makes this one very unique and interesting !

DSG (7625) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 15, 2015
[2/11/15] Draught at Toronado in San Francisco. Hazy orange. Lovely funky aroma, cellary, with cobwebs, fruits, oak, sweat and some hops. Sour flavor, fruity, funky, oaky, a bit vinous, with some nice fresh fruity hops. Leaves the mouth dry. Medium-bodied. Great stuff.

Pour is golden honey amber with very high white head. Smells like a dry hoppy ipa. Citrusy and very heavy caramel malt on the nose. To strong. Lightly tart and very malty heavy thicker body. Warming end. Taste is a dichotomy. The hop and malt varieties used just compete with a nice light sour. Some honey and floral notes. I want to like it but just can't, the tastes compete. V8 ending.
