Le Terroir is a French term meaning ĎOf the Earth.í 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.

had this one on draft at lucky pie, could smell the dry hops, definitely got better as it warmed up a little awkward on the palate at first, but eventually got used to it. was a pretty delicious sour with pleasant tartness

Beerdrinker79 (1807) - Idaho, USA - JUN 9, 2011
22 oz. bottle- Pours cloudy hazy golden orange with a 1 finger head that is dissipating quickly, aroma is brett funk, tart, some sort of a melon, jolly rancher. The flavor is mouth puckering sour, I got the head shivers after the first swallow, followed by a more sweet citrusy fruity taste, mango, hops are there, but the sourness overpowers them, creamy too, man what doesnít this have. The sourness mellows after the first shock, and it becomes a nice drinking wild ale. I would have to compare to the la folie, because I really canít decide which is better, both excellent beers.

piscator34 (2181) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Loads of tangello and grapefruit on the nose, backed by funk, and a herbal/grassy elements. The sweet citrus and funk ride continues in the mouth with notes of meyer lemon, earth, grasses, and mild funk. The palate is well balanced between the sour, funk, and juicy fruit. Very nice indeed.

I remember the day back in 2007 that this random 1/6th barrel showed up at Brouwerís labeled "La Terrior". No one really knew what to think until we poured a few glasses and took a whiff, and BOOM. Nose, destruction, in the best way. The first few sips of this changed my beer drinking forever. In fact, this brew could be what got me addicted to sours. Dirt, funk, Earth, grass, peaches, apricots, barnyard, hay, all blended into this swirling carbonated clean mess. I can remember how dry my lips were after each sip, and how I wanted more, and more, and more. Now itís in bottles and I havenít tried that version yet...hopefully with the bigger batches itís held up!! I love this beer.

~Acidic sour scent with wheat and candy like sweetness. ~Pours a hazy gold with small lasting white head. ~Acidic sour grapefruity flavor, slight biscuity malt in background. ~Light bodied, high CO2, sour acidic finish. ~Enjoyable sour, just a bit one dimensional.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2011
First sample thanks to Brian. Murky golden ale with a small, white head. The aroma is a sour, earthy swirl of lemon, leather, cheddar and horse blanket. The only real way (for me) to describe the flavor is Super Sour!... itís everything acidic and acetic. Beautiful! Medium-bodied and tannic with average carbonation. Finishes super sour and dry. Sour peach explosion

mcberko (10565) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours almost clear golden with a small head. Aroma of dry hops and sour fruits - the epitome of a cross between an IPA and sour ale. Flavour of sweet and sour fruits, a salty element and some soy sauce. Unusual, but quite enjoyable.
