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.

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. Doesn’t 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 don’t 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.

Split with raveskdr. Nice brew! Poured a golden color, small white head. Aroma was tart peaches - really peach - very enjoyable! Flavor was peach and mango, tropical citrus. Sour! Enjoyed quite a bit.

A wonderful flanders red brew with a hazy amber orange color. A hint of sweetness in the nose and an lemony/citrusy sourness that teases the back sides of you tongue. EASY TO DRINK. BUY AGAIN! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma of sour fermented fruit, pineapple, mango, orange pulp and a little brett. Taste is heavily sour and light sweet. Green apple peel, grapefruit, brett and lemon. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long sour finish. Overall, I’m kinda diggin this beer. Every time I have a sour, it the style grows more and more on me.
