New Belgium Le Terroir Dry Hop Sour
Le Terroir is a french term meaning 'of the earth' and is frequently used to reference the natural, environmental conditions that affect beer. So it is with our Wood Cellar and the foeders in which Le Terroir is created. These oak barrels combine nature and craftsmanship to age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity and vibrations. Coupled with dry-hopping using fruit-forward and experimental hops, Le Terroir is a beer that rewards differently every time you experience it. Visual: Glowing light uniform haze, golden orange hue, minimal foam. Aroma: Wood beer funkiness of wet wood and earth. Mixed with ripe peaches, passion fruit, pineapple, and citrus (grapefruit and lemons) with sour grape. Flavor: Light sweetness moving into a dominating sourness. There's a subtle bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel/Body: Puckering, mouthwatering, medium body with a fast and crisp finish.
