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.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Deep golden body with a soft white head. Big sour nose, earthy, bretty and dry. Flavor is tart up front, citrus and lots of brett character. Finish is rather strong on the acidity, notes of lemon and oak.

electrotype (574) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Au nez je trouve ça très, très attirant. C’est fruité et chargé. Aucun problème de personnalité ici... En bouche c’est sûre et très concentré. Je suis un peu déçu: ce n’est pas mauvais, mais ça manque clairement de finesse. C’est très intense comme offrande et on pourrait espérer plus de subtilité. C’est comme un cocktail aux pêches qui aurait été évaporé pour le concentrer.

Lilja (2535) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2016
Fat på Beer Ditch Malmö. Smak och doft av krusbär, vita vinbär, örter, grapefrukt, stall, citrus, trä, jord med toner av sura äpplen. Fruktig, frisk, funkig, fin syrlighet, lagom sötma och bra beska. Fina smaker i god balans, mycket gott!

fordest (2362) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2016
Draft at the Quad Alehouse for my birthday. Lots of sour on the nose and the tongue. Acidic and delightful. I got lots of pear and touches of grapefruit. Good stuff.

omhper (22725) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2016
Keg at Knäppingen, Norrköping, Sweden. Cloudy deep golden, small head. Acetic peach aroma. Sweet and sour with full body and rounded mouthfeel. Intensely acetic and fruity. Peachy, citrusy hops. Lemon juice concentrate. Peppery bitter finish. More bold than refined. Too much juice concentrate.

drpimento (2883) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2016
I don’t pick up much in the hop department per se, but the rest of it- huge fruity sourness, with a malt backbone is great. Aroma has a bit of perfume that slightly carries over into flavor. Not a session, but pretty good stuff.

On tap at Brewers beer bar, Göteborg. Murky red with off white head. Sour berries, fruit, oak, wood, earthy and stables. Dry beer with a medium sourness that qickly finishes leaving a very dry mouthfeel afterwards.

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Pours a golden amber color w/ quick dissipating head. Aromas of vinegar, light fruit, and some barnyard. Tastes like lightly fruity easter egg dye with some horseblanket. Outstanding sour and tart!

ABUSEDGOAT (2487) - California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Orange colored, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is sour cherry, oak, citrus, yeast, light barnyard action. Medium bodied, moderate to low tartness, moderate to low sweetness, hop presence detectable. It’s pretty good but I don’t think the hops are helping the cause.
