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.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
2011-08-19. Lightly hazy golden peach coloured body with a small white head. 3+ Interesting aroma, sort of peachy fruit like character, mild citrus, fruity. Can’t quite place it - sort of a peach pit like note. 7+ Flavour has a similar peach like fruit character. Modest sourness throughout. 7+ Average to light bodied palate. Hops in the the nose meld interestingly with the other notes. I like it but I found it perplexing. I’d like to try it again and see what my second impressions are. Bottle shared by rudolf

Bottle, purchased in North Carolina, sampled immediately after a 2011 Upland Kiwi Lambic. Slightly hazy gold, thin white head. Nose is zesty citrus acidity - tangerine & grapefruit, with light fruity hoppiness and caramel maltiness. Flavor is great fruity tartness, acid & bubblegum, tangerine/peach & clementine. A bit of honey/caramel comes out towards the finish.

boamr (310) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours a orange color with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Has a hoppy apricot smell to it. Taste is very similar with some peach notes in the back and finishing tart.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2011 AROMA: hoppy (cascade and amarillo), yeasty, sour - lactic acid, seems to have some apricot going on there; APPEARANCE: orange and hazy TASTE: very well rounded (Oh Wow!), sour but robust, hits the whole tongue, has a bitter edge and aftertaste PALATE: a little creamy, slightly spritzy, medium body, longish finish OVERALL: Its an experience. Almost a homerun. Best I ever had though was a trial run by an amateur brewer who shall remain nameless.
