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.

Ktwse (4251) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Pours murky, pale amber with low white head. Aroma of green grapes, apples, bretta. Taste is rich tart, apples and grapes, light citrus fresh finish. Light, crisp body with soft to average carbonation.

650 mL bottle. Hazy orange. Medium white head that doesnt last. Smells tropical and hoppy. Acidic. A little doughy. Tastes pleasantly tart. Less hoppy. More of the Belgian maltiness. Stone fruit and a bit of mineral flavor. Medium body. Crisp. Well carbonated. Love these dry hopped sours.

malrubius (2697) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle from Total Wine. Murky orange with ring and a little lace. Orange leather wood polish funk aroma. Very woody orange tart orange leather funk with some range bitterness. A little watery. Must be old. Not pleasant. I think I am souring on sour beers a little.

Rating #1312 - 04.11.2014. Clear golden pour (bit of a reddish tinge maybe, or just odd lighting in my buddys kitchen) with a sticky white foam that bubbles away fairly quick. Wondrous aromas of peach, mango, funk. Palate is sticky bubble gum sweetness, and the sourness of the brett comes in with some glorious dry amarillo bitterness. A gem, indeed.

Bottle shared at a sour tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a clear-ish orange with a one-finger off-white head that lingers for a bit then dissipates. Lots of bright tropical fruit on the nose with nice peach undertones. As it warms more gooseberry comes out. Tart on the palate but not overly so with some light pine and grassy flavors that come out. Finishes tart with a hint of bitterness. Well-balanced hoppy, tart beer.

Bottle, thanks Jon. Nice aroma, light vegetables though. Gooseberries, sourness, grapefruit. Light carbonation.

jc1762 (1058) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Poured into a wine glass showing translucent dry orange peel and sparse white foam. The nose is pine and cannabis forward with big bright tropical fruit flavors of mango, pineapple, and citrus fruits upon warming up. The palate is moderately tart and moderately hop forward. Strong mango undertones throughout the beer without being too overt. Very good drinkability.

A wow beer... Great balance of sour and fruit and grassy and herbal with some softness in the palate. Pineapple, apricots, peach, tropical (mango?) Flavors and aromas with a boost of fresh cut grass. Great beer. Didnt expect this from such a large producer and a pasteurized product. So fresh tasting.

jake65 (3447) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Draft sample. Pours a light golden orange with a sudsy white head. Nose is tart, citrus, tropical fruit... Some tannins. Sour taste, moderate barrel influence. Plenty of pucker. Honestly I was hoping for more peach or mango presence, but overall this was a really solid offering.

Andrew196 (1625) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Aromatically exceptional...sour cherry, sour banana, lemongrass. Cloudy orange with yellow edges, medium frothy head. Taste was a bit less than expected, but only because it was overshadowed by the front end. Sour, bananas, funk, lingering taffy, very thin and dry for the ABV. Very drinkable.
