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.

Bottle thanks to pepsiedcan. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is citrus hops, sour funk. Awesome. Taste is tart, slightly bitter with a citrus finish. Interesting. I dig this beer.

Bottle whose origin and age I cant quite remember. Nice clear bronze color with a small white head. Really cool aroma that reminds me of Concord grape juice with a hint of hops and soreness. Pretty pungent sourness at the start of the flavor but then it mellows into a nice dose of hops. Really quick finish. Wow, this is good.

Bottle sample at Capones. Pours a cloudy orange with medium bubbly white head. Aromas of peachy amarillo, sour yeast, oranges, and tart lemons. Taste is a mango infused, barnyard sour with some lemon, pear, and apricot in the finish. Very tart medium bodied sour ale. Glad I got to try it, still prefer la folie.

Really great dry hopped sour beer. The hop flavor I assume has faded quite a bit now but there is still a nice hop aroma as well as the sour notes in both the smell and taste. Really crisp and tart. Quite enjoyable. Would have loved to try one of these fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours clear amber and bubbly with a nice bright white head. The aroma is boozy at this point with sweet tart notes. The body brings such a dryness to the palate on the sweet tart like ending, wow! Starts off with the sweet tart flavor as well as finishes, pleasant on the palate with flavors of sour mix like in a Long Island Iced Tea. The hops have faded mostly unfortunately from when I originally had it.

Pint @ Collins. This beer is great! Beautiful sour with a bitter punch. I could drink cases of this stuff. Doesnt look like anything special. Hazy orange. Tart and meaty. Just how I like em.

I now have to make some dry-hopped sours for my wife after she tried this. The citrus notes here are fantastic. Although they dont seem to be hoppy citrus. Perhaps the acidity takes away any underlying green notes? I hope this comes around repeatedly. This is a level or two above Iris for me.

Bottle at 3rd Annual Boulder SourFest (06-02-2012). Poured a perfectly clear, golden orange with a frothy white head. Smell is fresh hops, earthy, grass, and light sourness. The hops in the aroma are amazing to me considering how long ago this was brewed. Taste is medium sour, yet well-balanced. Flavors of wood, light peaches, earth, and funk. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. This beer is very interesting because it smells like an IPA, but drinks like a well-balanced sour. Very tasty and complex.

10oz pour at Fountainheads. Pouring a murky amber/brown with a slender head, it had the tart aroma of mangos and cherries with a soft scent of floral hops. Puckeringly sour, the fruits continued over a light malt taste, a nice blending of the acidic and the sweet. It finished on a dry and sour note. Nice and easy sour.

A - Pours a fairly clear golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some thick lace. S - Aroma is full of funky and tart green apple, candied citrus hops with some grapefruit and pinepple, and a bit of oak. T - Starts off with some very tart green apple flavor with some citrus hops growing in the background with some bitterness. Through the middle, some more grapefruit and pineapple come through alongside some more bitterness, lemon, and a bit of toasted malt. The finish is a mix of mellowing tartness, citrus hops, mild bitterness, and a touch of sweet malt that really linger. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a tart, sweet, and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. The dry hopping puts a nice hop element in the nose and in the flavor that adds a nice element to the sour beer.
