La Folie, French for 'the folly,' is a beer steeped in New Belgium brewing tradition. This wood-aged, sour brown spends one to three years in big, oak barrels, known as foeders. The base beer is fully fermented, filtered and then moved to barrels. Barrels are aged for 1-3 years and it’s a blend of 2 barrels. Acidifying and aging gives it its complex tart aromas and flavors. We taste barrels every three months and then blend different foeders with different flavor profiles and ages together at different percentages to make a complete single sour brown that is decidedly La Folie.
And when the beer finally hits the glass, La Folie is sharp and sour, full of green apple, cherry, and plum-skin notes. Pouring a deep mahogany, the mouthfeel will get you puckering while the smooth finish will get you smiling. Not a beer for the timid, La Folie is a sour delight that will turn your tongue on its head.
