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.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 20, 2008
Orange body and quite hazy with a nice sized off white head. Aroma bursts sour tartness. Slightly barny. Sour and tart with citrus flavour and some barny yeast. Quite citric throughout and quite strong. A little too citric for me.
Earlier Rating: 5/20/2008 Total Score: 4
Sour throughout but oh so balanced and clean. Some green apple and peach with some yeast and spice. Quite a nice sour ale.

Hopmaestro (874) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle @ ÖÖWF2015: Well this was a pucker. Aroma is funky with lemon notes, grapefruit, barnyard and more funk. Taste is sour with fruits and crackers, citrus and yuzu popped up in my mind. Young earth, wood, funk and a really zesty finish with a lot of flavors swirling around. I loved it!

ctipping (551) - Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2015
650 mL bottle. Hazy orange. Medium white head that doesn’t last. Smells tropical and hoppy. Acidic. A little doughy. Tastes pleasantly tart. Less hoppy. More of the Belgian maltiness. Stone fruit and a bit of mineral flavor. Medium body. Crisp. Well carbonated. Love these dry hopped sours.

malrubius (2244) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine. Murky orange with ring and a little lace. Orange leather wood polish funk aroma. Very woody orange tart orange leather funk with some range bitterness. A little watery. Must be old. Not pleasant. I think I am souring on sour beers a little.

bulldogops (1402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
Rating #1312 - 04.11.2014. Clear golden pour (bit of a reddish tinge maybe, or just odd lighting in my buddy’s kitchen) with a sticky white foam that bubbles away fairly quick. Wondrous aromas of peach, mango, funk. Palate is sticky bubble gum sweetness, and the sourness of the brett comes in with some glorious dry amarillo bitterness. A gem, indeed.

willisread (1304) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at a sour tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a clear-ish orange with a one-finger off-white head that lingers for a bit then dissipates. Lots of bright tropical fruit on the nose with nice peach undertones. As it warms more gooseberry comes out. Tart on the palate but not overly so with some light pine and grassy flavors that come out. Finishes tart with a hint of bitterness. Well-balanced hoppy, tart beer.

Bottle, thanks Jon. Nice aroma, light vegetables though. Gooseberries, sourness, grapefruit. Light carbonation.
