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.

weihenweizen (2265) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Refrigerated 2014 brown bomber poured into a tulip. Translucent orange with small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, medium body, low-carbonation, and little lacing. Taste citrus, peach, mango, hoppy, some earthy, and wood. Pretty good, easy to drink, but I had higher expectations based on rating and recommendations.

Barreras (1294) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours an electric yellow color with a sour malt aroma. Taste is fruity, tropical, mixed with a fair amount of hops. Almost a light pineapple flavor, but I can taste the mango/apricot in the beer. A light tasting sour, that was enjoyable.

benfergy (235) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - JAN 4, 2015
The aroma of the Le Terroir is complex; the yeast is very earthy, there’s a note of apricot, and bread malt is also present. The taste: definitely sour. The palate is actually quite smooth for such a sour beer. Definitely a winner for me, and one of the most unique beers I’ve tried.

HonusWagner (1743) - Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2014
A very good sour beer rotting on shelves everywhere due to a price that people wouldn’t balk at for 95% of the coveted sours on the market. Fruity dry hop character, light tartness, lacks for funk but is otherwise very good for an American version of the style.

commonmac (698) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 Tap at Mackenzie’s in downtown Mpls. Fluted beer glass...skinny and strange. Half finger of head. Orange in appearance. Slight haze. Aroma is plenty of hops with bubblegum creeping through. Wow, that is interesting. Not holding anything back. .. owns the sourness. Some bubblegum remnants as it finishes. Plenty of tart and sour throughout. Honestly kind of challenging to consume. It is as advertised...sour, wild, and probably not something I will order again. This truly is a terroir...on my taste buds.
