New Belgium Le Terroir, one of the brewery’s most popular wood-aged sour ales, has returned to the brewery’s portfolio.
Le Terroir (French, meaning soil or land) first debuted in 2011, under the watch of Peter Bouckaert, who has since departed the brewery for Purpose Brewing & Cellars. Previously bottled as a Lips of Faith release, Le Terroir is a dry-hopped American Wild Ale.
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.
