Poured into a stem tulip.
A. Deep reddish-brown mahogany colour. Little to no head or lace.
S. Vinegar straight off, with a strong brown ale component of roasted malts. Cherries and funk.
T. Plenty of mouth-puckering sourness that dries the inside of the mouth. More roasted malts along with a good hit of citrus. Wonderfully complex. Very dry finish with a strong hint of vinegar.
M. As is so often the case with New Belgium, a bit on the thin side.
O. La Folie was the first sour I ever tasted. At the time I couldn't believe anyone would want to drink this awful stuff. Since then I've worked my way back to it via a few other sours (I'm looking at you Russian River and Jester King), and blow me down - I really like it! Michael Jackson was right, of course: Belgian and Belgian style sours are among the most refreshing and complex beers to be had.
