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.

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.

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 !

[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.

Mep3222 (834) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Very nice floral tropical hoppy aroma with lactic sour following. Sour maybe 5 of 10. Nice woody flavors in there as well as oaky. Light in color. Doesn’t have the dark fruit flavors of some darker sours. Really a great sour. Love the dry hopping and what it adds. Very drinkable session able sour, but still full bodied and quite sour. Really love it, just missing some of the many complex flavors of other sours that causes me to bump up the rating a bit. But still so good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Smells faintly like lemon and yeast. Taste is light to medium lactic sourness, lemons, saisony spicy yeast, and a tad bit of hop/citrus bitterness. Lively carbonation with mild foam.

2014 Bomber: Coppery orange color with about an inch of rather quickly settling orange tinted tan foam. I catch aromas of orange, mango caramel, barnyard funky notes. Tart for sure, it’s got awesome lemony sourness, some earthy yeastiness, caramel, juicy tropical fruits. Medium bodied, the carbonation is crisp and prickly but not overwhelming. It finishes with a toasty, biscuit quality and a touch of fruit cocktail syrup.
