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.

RSRIZZO (1931) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 44°. Color is a nice golden with a slight haze. Carbonation is light with a thin tight head. Aroma is great, fresh sweet hops with a nice sour note in the back. It has a lighter medium body that gives you a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is just amazing, with a bright tart peach taste, a hint of grass and a nice sour feel. After taste is dry with a lingering tart/sour taste. This brew is rocks, its a well balanced blend of tart and sour.

SpringsLicker (3380) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Clear deep gold body with a small. fleeting white head. Fruity, tart, earthy aroma. The flavor is balanced between the fruity tartness and the underlying sweetness. Earthy and complex. Very nice

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2011
On tap at Bar on Buena as "Lips of Faith Le Terroir." Smells like warm sour cherries in dust and brandy. Opaque copper with a thin head. As sour as La Folie, but lighter in its fruit flavors and texture; more like melons and granny smith apples, with a hint of banana; bright and refreshing. As much as I love La Folie, this is more drinkable without sacraficing the sour goodness. Perhaps a bit less complex, it is nonetheless super-delicious. I’m a whore for sours, and I will gladly be this beer’s bitch any time it’s on tap.

madvike (3172) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle - Pours golden amber with a thin off-white head. Smell is huge pungent mango and apricot--earthy and cheesy, with light citrusy funk. Wow...fantastic. Tasty is fruity and cheesy, with the same mango/apricot/citrus blend. White vinegar tartness on the finish, with tropical fruit and a bit of earthiness. Crisp and refreshing, with wonderful flavor. Awesome stuff.

illidurit (2279) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 5, 2011
On tap at Burger. in Santa Cruz. POurs an opaque tangerine bronze color with a sticky white head. Aroma is lemons and unripe berries, blackberries in particular come to mind, seedy and tart. Flavor is acidic unripe fruits, citrus and berries, something subtly herbal, lemonhead candy, slight honey malts in the finish, very dry and tart. Palate is very nice but I’m somewhat underwhelmed by the depth of flavor. Reminds me a lot of unsweetened lemonade. Still a good beer.

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2011
This is the first sour beer i have had in a while and I’m not too sure on how it rate it. The aroma is sweet, almost fruity. The taste brings a whole new meaning to beer, sour/tart and malty awesomeness with a hoppy resin. The body is light, with a medium carbonation. I am curious of how this beer was made, one of a kind.

suprchunk (2887) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Pours a clear, bubbly honey color. Barely a head. But it is white and leave little to no lacing. Smells like rubber tires, roasty malt and funk. The taste is big hoppy up front, with a bit of sweet and tangy following close behind. And very fruity, like peaches. Slight bitter aftertaste. Slight sweet mouth feel. Very good.
