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.

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, Im kinda diggin this beer. Every time I have a sour, it the style grows more and more on me.

Pours gold-green with a thin, bubbly white head. Aroma is pine, grass, sour, peach, pear, citrus, mango. Taste is sour, bitter, hoppy, fruity and very tart, lots of varying fruity notes and flavors. Very interesting. Lemon zest finish. The carbonation is a bit much, but otherwise, I enjoyed this.

Poured into chimay chalice A- Pours gold in color with two fingers of head. Has an unfiltered look with no lacing. S- Peaches up front on the nose. Im also getting a sour funk along with apples, lemons, mangos and fruity hops. I think the mango is comming from the hops. T- Wow, super tart but good. Lots of citrus fruits, mangos, grapefruit. Nice bitterness in finish. D> Light body and carbonation is spot on! This beer almost numbs the lips. The sourness goes great with the bitterness in the end. It almost locked my jam the first time i had it but im glad to say i have had alot more and its a great summer sour beer!

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2012 The nose is quite sour, with lime, lime peel, some of the greenest mangoes ever, a touch of grapes, and also a touch of staleness, like a funky little something that, quite frankly, isnt bad at all. The taste is predominantly sour, of course, with only a bit of lingering bitterness and some sweetness, but again, sour throughout. Lemons, limes, all things super tart. The mouthfeel is sticky, full-bodied, perfect. Somehow, the sum of it all manages to be a very drinkable beer. Lovely.

Sour ale, tasted on tap at OBriens in San Diego. Backlogged rating, I believe from their barrel-aged beer night. One of my favorites of New Belgium to date. Appearance is hazy gold, with a light white ring of head. Aroma is of grains, pear, and a light barnyard funk. The flavor shows more of the sour character, along with lemon zest, funky cheese and biscuit, layered with complexity. Finishes dry with a nice dose of hops. Excellent!

nuplastikk (6105) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2012
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.

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.
