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.

McGarnigle (634) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Bomber. Lordy, this is a sour one. Not slightly tart, but lemon-licking sour. So sour you can only sip it. There are American hops in the background, and they blend well enough you cant tell where the bugs end and the hops begin. Im not sure if the wooden barrels are supposed to provide oakiness (none detected) or are just the vessels for the lacto. Well crafted brew, but for the devotee of sour beers only.

hman43 (1341) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2016
It pours light golden with a bit of orange. The is a white head that doesnt have very good head retention. It has an earthly aroma with wood mixed in. There are some mango aromas that complement the earth and wood. There is a subtle sourness around the nose as well. It is moderately sour with mango and peaches complement by the wood and earthly elements. There are also oranges in the background notes. It has a moderate feel. The beer causes a certain tart puckering to it that is pleasant and not overdone. The tart finish is rather long lasting. Overall, this is a fruity sour ale with peaches and mango taking center stage with a complex combination of the wood and earthly elements into a pleasant sour/tart finish.
