In stock now at Forsyth will get it online tonight
New Belgium Lips of Faith Le Terroir 2016...$12.99

Le Terroir is a french term meaning “of the earth." Used to reference the environmental conditions 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.

ABV: 7.5%
Hops: Target
Malts: Pale, Wheat, C-80, Carapils, Oats
Yeast: Lager Yeast
Aroma: Peachy hops, citric sour notes- juicy.
Mouthfeel: Tart and dry, hop linger.
Flavor: Sour, hoppy burp finish- lemongrass and mango sours and hops- you would think that hops and sour do not go together but the hop choice- Amarillo- tropical fruit notes and the barrels soft fruit sours seem to be the perfect marriage.
Visual: Golden color, filtered clear.
