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.

Bottled. Thx. doodler for this. Yellow coloured. Unclear. Small light brown head. Aroma of fruits, sweetness, light sourness and citrus. Flavour is quite sweet for a sour. Has some citric and sourness, herbs, fruits and grape. Meidum to full bodied. Has a citric end with some herbal notes.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of madsberg. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Tart, berry-like aroma. Medium body, some sweet fruit and bon-bons, again these berry accents, baking yeast and a fruity tartness. Not bad but not really the most sophisticated Sour. 311011

Oakes (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2011
Had this a few times - finally wrote some notes on it. Golden. Amarillo hop and a little bit phenolic on the nose. Tart, with light fruity - the hop contributes a nice fruity character to this beer.

nsquishee (637) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Grapefruit, peach, grapes, and barrel aromas. Tartness followed by a fruity sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit, grapes, barrel, funk, lemon, and light hops. Another very nice sour ale from New Belgium. Second only to La Folie as far as NB sours go.

lupulicious (30) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Draft at Hudson. Deliciously tangy apricot-dominated sour. Very clean finish, refined winey nose. Fluffy head recedes to thin ring with very fine-grained lace.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
750ml bottle shared with MikeLovesBeer. I was expecting this sour up front type beer but what I got was a swift kick of hops. The hops were right up front in the aroma with a faint hint of sourness. The flavor was mostly hoppy with a nice sour twist to it. Overall not too shabby.

Beaver (1614) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is nice, lots of acidic brett with some sour apple and some musty hops.

The flavor is sweet tart fruity mouth-puckering sourness with some earthy acidic brett and a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, one of my favorite sours. A huge amount of sourness with some yummy brett.

Jow (3277) - New York, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Also tapped at Brewgrass 2011. Another great sour from NB. Tastes is light hops, tangerines, peach, mango, some caramel, and wood. Finish is drying and leaves floral taste in mouth. I could drink this all day

In taster at Churchill’s in San Marcos. Looks pretty clear and yellow with off white head. Smells hopped. Tastes relatively crisp sour. Pretty light malts and some flowers. Lovely sour. Overall 8 of 10.
