Appearance - The beer was a brown colors with dark red hues cascading throughout the beer. There was a slight off-white foam clinging to the sides of the snifter.
Smell - Cherry really comes through in the aroma. In the background, one might detect the oak and a slight sour sense of vinegar.
Taste - Oh, this one is sour. At the front, the sour explodes. Sour grapes, wood, vinegar, and sour cherries begin the assault. If you search, you can find the hidden sweetness toward the back. In the aftertaste, the sour fruits continues to coat the tongue and roof of the mouth. Even with thie low ABV, the sourness creates a faux warming impression.
Mouthfeel - La Folie has serious lingering power. It lounges on the tongue for several minutes after the swallow. Part thickness, part intensity, this feels like a sour.
Overall - I typically am not overly impressed with New Belgium releases, but I am impressed with this one. It is an easily accessible sour, that is nicely balanced.
