New Belgium Le Terroir

Type: Wild ale
Origin: Fort Collins, CO
Price: ~$12 22oz
7.5% ABV

I had this beer something like 4 months ago, and the memory of drinking it is still fresh. I really enjoyed this sour ale. It had flavors similar to the Girardin Gueuze I reviewed. But much more interesting and complex. It's quite tart with a dry finish that has very noticeable hoppy goodness. It has that familiar wet dog smell all of my favorite sours have in common with a citrusy kick and some wheatiness to boot. New Belgium is producing great beers, I just wish their most popular beer wasn't so lame.
