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. Orange color. canned apricot in the floral aroma. Red berries. Sour floral hopbitter flavor with apricot and lemon. The apricot remains strong in the aftertaste. lovely well balanced, sour yet hoppy aroma and flavor. Good complexity.

Draft at Sugar Maple. One of my favorite beers of 2011. Hazy, unfiltered orange-tan. Solid off-white head. Tangy, funky, sour fruit aroma. Wow. Sour tangerine tones. Intense. Passionfruit, mango. Sugary and sweet with a solid sour balance. I dont get much hop character, the sour tones overwhelm. Simply excellent, only for the experienced sour freak. Peach, lemon, lime..lots of fruit tones. Delicious, world class.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 Golden/copper pour, plenty of white head. Strong hop aroma greets my nose right away. Peaches and other citrus follow, with tart yeast bringing up the rear. Tart peach and citrus, interesting hop profile behind. I think the beer works pretty well, but I’m not a big fan of peaches so it only goes so far for me. And it can’t touch La Folie.

Pours a clear and golden beer with a large offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, acidity and fruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is fresh and acidic. Overall a good beer.

Generous frothy pure whie head, on a light clearer orange body. Yeasty, dank berriness, hay, slightly funky, and lemon zest in the aroma. Slightly citric at first, then fairly earthy and kinda funky in the flavor, dry, slight berry-like presence. Medium body with bubbly carbonation. Nice

Le Terroir is such a beautiful beer. Sure, its average broze with a little head and clear in appearance. Big whup. But the nose has a fruity, sugary tartness to it, citrus-leaning. That nose downplays the beers taste. WOW. Holy smokes. New Belgium knocked it out of the park this time. The hops are still present in a grapefruit and mango type of way, but mostly this beer has trended towards sour. The tart white grapes are all over the place, but with enough sweetness and water to cut that back to a fine drinkability. Le Terroir is - easily put - an exceptional beer. If I had more, Id be getting drunk tonight. Im going to need it - the Eagles are playing...

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2011
(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy amber pour with a fizzy white head. Citrus and flowery hop aroma with tons of notes of fresh foliage and freshly cut fruit. The flavor on the other hand is incredibly potent and sour. Lots of earthy tart and funky notes that completely blows the hop aroma out of the water. Definitely not what I expected. And big lip pucker factor on this one. Awesome.

Hazy golden orange with a good sized cream colored head. Aroma is of tropical fruits, peach skin, oranges, slightly floral, with a hint of funk. Taste is of peaches, tart, farmhouse floor, apricot, and light wood. Gets better as it warms. It gains more of the funky characteristics.

travita (4935) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Aroma is hops, apricot, fruity hops mix, somewhat different than typical in a hoppy or fruity beer, but pleasant. The looks is cloudy, golden in color, whitish head. The taste is tart, but not too sour, peachy stone fruits like, jolly rancherish. Different mix. Good overall nice attempt at something.
