Thanks to Jw347 for this bottle. Bottled 11/07.

a - pours a deep burgundy color, huge light tan bubbly head with good retention and lacing, pretty cloudy

s - big sour and tart cherry aroma with an ample amount of oak, a bit of funkiness

t - sweet and tart cherry flavors up front, midpalate is strong sourness with some vinegar and shots of oak and leather thrown in, sourness, light cherry flavors with a bunch of oak lingering on the finish

m - lots of carbonation, very active in the mouth, medium-bodied, fairly dry on the finish

d - the tartness and sourness definitely makes this a sipper, but I'm having no problem getting through this 750ml bottle

Great, interesting beer overall. Definitely one of the finest American-made sour ales.

Tried this tonight and was very impressed. I've heard about this beer and every time I see "New Belgium Brewing" next to the name I just keep right on browsing, figuring that it can't be any good. I was sorely mistaken.

This beer pours a deep red color that was sorta clear. Slightly hazy. There was some head in my glass but that was pretty much a vertical pour in an effort to aggravate the beer and produce some aromas. Not much retention.

The smell was wonderfully geuze-like. Moderately sour and definitely some oak in there. Also some sour cherries coming out. The smell is not as intensely complex as some of the reviews would make it out to be but it is very well balanced.

The taste is moderately sour and oak inspired. There is some fruit in the background and some sweet malt. Not much to comment on other than its a great flavor and that I could drink bottles of this on a daily basis.

Over the past 6 months or so I have really been introduced to sour belgian beers and this is a prime example. Medium body, enough CO2, very drinkable.

750 ml bottle acquired in a trade with drseamus, thanks for giving me the opportunity to try this amazing beer, originally cost approximately eighteen dollars from the brewery

Split with my girlfriend tonight while watching Into the Wild, hand bottled number is 07-2978, has been in my cellar since November, poured into my New Belgium snifter

A-Medium to dark brown body with red highlights, 3/4 inch off white bubbly head, tons of carbonation in this one, bottle exploded all over the place when open, no retention, some lacing

S-Tartness, granny smith apples, citric acid, eathy aromas, funky accents, cherries, raspberries, strawberries, vinegar, lemon juice, wood, wine, extremely sour overall

T-Sourness does not waste any time, big tart right off the bat, does not fade much into its somewhat dry and chardonnay-like finish, very acidic and did not see malt until later on in the middle once it warmed a little, lots of fruit and balsamic vinegar notes later on, tons of lemons and cherries that provide somewhat of a burning sensation on your tongue, super sour all the way through, even my last few sips an hour or so later, could taste some oak at the end, flavor rivaled some of Russian River's wild ales, superb taste overall

M-Sweet and tarty mouthfeel, thin to medium body, huge amounts of carbonation which can be overwhelming at times, aftertaste stuck around for a couple minutes

D-Could have drank the bottle individually, low ABV, lacks great smoothness, also the high level of sourness causes it to be pretty heavy, alcohol is hidden well though

Hard to believe this amazing beer comes from the same people that make Fat Tire, even better than the Red Poppy I just drank, need to try this next time it is on tap at O'Briens or Liars Club, I let the last few ounces in my glass warm for well over an hour and the result was great, cannot wait to drink this again, highly recommended

750 ml bottle corked and caged. Poured into a stubby chalice. I was told "wide mouth" was the way to serve this guy.

Pours much darker than I thought it would. Very deep brown with amber and ruby highlights. I was expecting some floating yeast and whatnot but there wasn't much. I did let it settle quite a bit before serving though. Fizzes to a good 2 finger head right away, but dissipates quickly into almost nothing.

The smells is extremely sour. A lot of apple evident in the nose, almost sour candy like. Very unique.

Wow. The sour hits you hard and fast. Takes a few sips to get past the mega sour taste that you get upfront with your first few drinks. It's the same sour apple taste you get in the smell, but it doesn't linger long and you get a very tart bite right afterwards. If you let it sit on your tongue for awhile, you can pick up a hint of a traditional farmhouse/saison character in the finish. There's a nice little pepper/grassy bite that finishes it off....with some warming alcohol here and there, which was unexpected at only 6% abv.

While this is a fun brew, it's really not the most drinkable. The tart/sour isn't bad, it's just a lot to deal with if you aren't used to it. It was a struggle to get through the whole bottle, but I really wanted to see if this guy would mellow out when it warmed up.

All in all a pretty good brew, but I could only have it as the occassional treat.

Pours a ruby brown with no head. Smell is tart with some of the oak coming through. Taste is all sour. This is liquid Sweet Tarts. Not a whole lot more there. Just a smooth, not overly carbonated sour beer. Decent, rather one dimensional. I couldn't drink too much. The 750 was too much. There was too much acidity in the beer for my liking.

(Bottle 07-6791).

Appearance: Pours a hazed brown body with a small, fizzy, off-white head.

Smell: Tart-smelling sour cherry aroma with notes of seasoned wood, earthy funk, and a neutral graininess.

Taste: Immediately sour and tart with a blackberry and cherry-like fruitiness. Slightly tannic oakiness and a bit of funk encountered. Fleeting flash of malts. Two drops of Worcestershire sauce. Bracing acidity. Finishes dry with a long-lived tart, fruit aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Fine carbonation.

Drinkability: There hasn't been anything this tart yet still wonderfully balanced and easily drinkable in my mouth in a long, long, LONG time. A lovely beer.

New Years tasting extravaganza with grub and biegaman, La Folie bottle #06-3445, opened by grub.

Pours a pretty clear red/brown, huge off white head forms, leaves behind some absolutely massive lacing, great retention, looks nice. Smell is nice, cherries, caramel, very acidic, vinegar, oak, vanilla, super intense fruity sourness. Taste is great, cherries and brown sugar, oak, very acidic, lemons, more fruits, very sour finish, puckering and its great. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation, very dry finish, very acidic. Lives up to the reputation for me, great sour beer. Thanks Russ!

Thanks to Oskaar for thinking of us during his trip to New Belgium Brewing.

Poured into a clean tulip. Colors range from brown, to reddish orange and it's crystal clear. Due to the non aggressive pour to keep the yeasties at bay (served 3 people), the head is somewhat thin but long lasting.

The aroma is wonderful. melons, acid tartness, vanilla, cherries, a little barnyard funk but not as much as I was anticipating. There is a little malt sweetness in the aroma.

Up front you get a blast of sour fruits, oak tannins, vanilla, with a little malt sweetness. Very little though. Balsamic vinegar notes with a wonderful grape skin smacking finish. Very geuze like. A little more sour than I expected but with all of the complex flavors, New Belgium seems to have done this right.

Highly effervescent with a wonderful acetic zest. Light to medium bodied. (id say more light than medium).

This is a highly drinkable flanders and I even went as far as to finish off the yeast dregs afterwards. I couldn't get enough of this stuff. This is an anytime beer in my book. Refreshing enough to quench your thirst in the summer and enough character keep up with all of winter warmers.

I'm very impressed with this beer.

Thanks to artusory for the trade.

Pours an enticingly hazy amber-orange. Pretty muddied, though. Nice full two or three inch head, pretty long lasting.

The smell is either heavenly, or horrific, depending on your tastes. I do enjoy sour beers, so this was fantastic. The aroma is vinegar, citrus/lemon tartness, and a whiff of sour fruit.

The taste is pretty unapologetically broad. Razor sharp lemon citrus, definitely sour cherries and maybe tart raspberries, and a big heavy wood/oak taste.

Lively dry champagne-esque mouthfeel really sets it all off. I can't believe this was made by the same brewery that has Fat Tire as its flagship line.

2007 vintage, bottle 3414 pours effervescent caramel/orange with 4+ fingers of fluffed up tan colored head. Head quickly drops off to 1/4" inch. Very good lacing & above average head retention

S: Much sourness & vinegar, appleskins & raspberry, plus a bit of leather

T: Much dryness, appleskins, tartness &sour cherry up front. Oaky notes, a bit of raspberry tartness, & granny smith apples as this warms. Finishes dry, acidic, with more sour cherry, apple skins & some acidic burn (too much)

MF: So much dryness, minimal carbonation, acidity is pretty prominent too.

Drinks so slow, this is just too much. The only reason I don't rate lower is this mostly sticking to style. Other versions of Flanders red aren't so extreme. I did find it a bit more user-friendly on tap, but I had a load of beer down my gut prior to tasting that sample. Sour beer freaks may love this, but I sure as hell couldn't session on this. Too harsh for the style IMO. Would go great with cheese, I wonder how aging would affect this? At $18 bottle, I may never know

Received this beer in a trade with jhammerly

The beer pours orange/red amber. It really is a beautiful color, but a bit hazy. Has a huge head initially which fades very quickly.

Aroma is beautiful. Sour, but not too sour. A bit of acetic acid in the aroma, but mostly a general sourness, not weighed too heavily towards lactic or acetic. It has nice hints of read fruit, particularly raspberries and cherries. Some malt sweetness and possibly some tropical esters.

The taste is really nice. Not as fruity as the aroma, but still quite prominent. Assertive sourness, but it does not detract. It is well balanced between sweet and sour. I almost detect some hop flavor, but that could be my palate fooling me. This is really good.

It has a lively carbonation. I imagine without the carbonation this beer would be rather creamy. The carbonation livens it up nicely.

The drinkability suffers somewhat due to the sourness. It is just a shade too sour for me to drink much of this. But I am prone to heartburn, so don;t let that scare you. This is a beautiful, well balanced beer.

2006 Cork & Cage bottle
This is my 3rd time sampling La Folie, and this particular bottle was from the 2006 release, numbered 06-3463. Served at cellar temp: 55º-60º.

Perfect crimson red, with racing carbonation. A small blanketing of foam develops after the pour, and settles to a patchy skim. Evaporating carbonation is audible, like Rice Krispies. A white ring of foam is ever present, and some irregular lacing decorates the glass.

Aromas of musty leather, dark underripe berries, black cherry, residual pasture funk, at a lower level than a Gueuze or Lambic. Complex without being overbearing, truly a signature aroma of a traditional Flanders Red.

Tart flavor, with a nice residual cherry and oak bouquet. Dry finish, oak tannins, with plenty of fruit lingering. Residual saltiness that is pretty unique for this style, yet compliments the sweet/sour well. Not ham-fistedly sour, as some Gueuzes can be at first sip. Delicate and complex, the most perfect Flanders style ale i've come across. Quenching in it's tartness, this is the epitome of my attraction to sour ales.

2008 tap sample: Very tart, it may put off novices to the style. There was a distinct grape jelly aftertaste that I never noticed before, acetic acid, and a hint of multigrain breadiness. The body seemed less substantial than from from the bottle, as if it lost steam after 15 minutes.

Sadly this beer has become one dimensional due to it's pasteurization and mass production, I feel. Every time I try it, it seems like a shell of its former self. :'(

I first tried this beer during the 2007 GABF week at the brewery. I thought it was great then, it's even better away from the brewery.

It poured/smelt/and tasted amazing. I have been on a sour kick recenty and have tried every one I could get my hands on, and nothing touches this one.

If sour ales are you kind of beer, this is a must.

I drank this at a "The Belgian Beer Diaspora" beer tasting hosted by the late Michael Jackson at the National Geographic. The tasting involved pairing a number of Belgian beer styles with a Belgian and American interpretation of the style.

These are my tasting notes:

This was my 2nd sour beer and it was in the same night as my first. I was struck by the totally different and unbelievably sour taste of this beer and had a hard time drinking it. It had an incredibly sour smell and taste, but a hint of sweetness came in as you drank and get used to the sourness in a beer.

This is something I'd like to try again now that my palate has expanded.

A- Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Riedel snifter. Pours reddish brown with no head.

S- Cherries and oak in the front. Not an overly strong nose.

T- This is a pretty good example of a Flanders Red. Definite oak from the aging with the sour cherries. Good level of sour flavor for this beer.

M- Med to low carbonation. Could be a bit higher to cut through the sourness.

D- I love this style of beer. Good sour character and fruit in this beer.

Original review done on July 3rd to celebrate the 4th a day early.

A two finger rich tan head quickly crackles to the top of the glass. Big rocky bubbles pop with nice sound effects. Body is a deep brown with hints of orange amber on the sides of the glass. Nose is very invigorating with lowd spiceyness, and hints of sweet fizz candy, and old fashioned cream soda. This nose is so unique and amazing. As I take first sip I wasnt ready for the electric sour rush that attacks the tongue. I mean the sour is so shrill that it makes me squint with each drink. Like if the coating on an atomic sour ball came in liquid form. This is just to much for me. The total sour feel ruins my buds to taste much else, and hurts the drinkability.

This one comes from franksnbeans

A: Beautiful amber hue with a thin head that clings on for dear life. It's very bubbly but the head dies down and there is no lacing noted.

S: Lots of cherry with hints of oak. Fresh wet black cherries. The sourness seems to burst from the glass.

T: A great balance of oak and cherry. Sourness dominantes the palate, But sweet yet tart cherries and oak make themselves known in such a wonderful way. There is a touch of white pepper that adds just enough spice to balance out the tartness of the cherries.

M and D: Wonderfully balanced. The marriage of sour and sweet fruit and married to oak creates one wonderful beer. It's easy to drink and oh so enjoyable.

Overall: My favorite Red Ale to date. It's just a bonus that it happens to be brewed in the US. Tons of fruit and tart, funk and sweetness. Perfectly crafted, perfectly brewed. It's the standard that other breweres should use as a bench mark.

I love it!

got this one from nlmartin as part of BC2. thanks nate!

750ml bottle, corked and caged. hand bottled #06-3445. sampled dec 31/07.

pours deep ruby red with a big fluffy light brown head. the head drops slowly and leaves lots of lace.

aroma is excellent. cherry. funk. bit of sourness. touch of cider vinegar. bit of lemon. lots of dark fruit. touch of vanilla and raw oak. hints of tangerine and orange. bit of alcohol.

taste is sour! big lemon and grapefruit blast. bit of cider vinegar. vanilla. horse blanket. bit of tobacco. leather. crackers and grain. light alcohol. hint of dark chocolate. big sour and acidic character.

mouthfeel is good. low carbonation level. medium-light body. incredibly dry finish.

drinkability is ok. this beer is intensely sour. the other aspects of the beer balance well, but there's no getting away from the sourness and acidity. as a result, you just really can't drink too much of this. even splitting the bottle 3 ways it was still a sipper that took a while to get through - mostly because you're enjoying every sip but also because of the sourness. curious to see how this would change with time.

I tried this brew in a side by side tasting with Rodenbach Grand Cru. This, IMO, was the superior brew. Both were delicious, but this brew was nothing short of incredible. Thanks Sid, for the opportunity to try this one again.

Poured part of a 750ml bottle into a snifter.

Appearance - it produced a 1 finger whitish head that lasted longer than I expected it to. This brew has amazing head retention - the head never fully dissipated, it just became a thin crown on the surface of the beer. It is a hazy translucent peachy amber color.

Smell - This beer has a really complex nose. I get notes of oak and vanilla, a heavy sour cherry scent, and old school Halloween bubble-gum. It has a very funky scent that is thick with wild yeast notes. Tasty.

Taste - The flavor is amazing. It is like drinking a liquid alcoholic SweeTart. The flavor is very similar to the scent - there are flavors of oak and vanilla, heavy sour cherry, green apple, an almost vinegar note (very slight), but there is less bubble-gum in the flavor than there is in the scent. It is extremely tart.

Mouthfeel - It is light/medium bodied. It is highly effervescent, the carbonation level is nearly perfect. However, the mouthfeel is very astringent - it isn't sticky or oily, but rather rips at the taste buds as it goes down the throat. That detracts from the overall feel of the beer, IMO.

Drinkability - Although this brew has an astringent mouthfeel, I don't think that the drinkability gets any better that this, for a Flanders Red. I could've drunk the entire bottle if I had the chance. This brew is amazing, and easily New Belgium's best brew.

Bottle I picked up in August at Beertopia in Omaha. Saved it for New Years. Poured a light terracotta and very clear, with hints of red. Nice egg-white colored head, quickly falling. Smells pungently sour. Tart cherries, red wine and hints of vanilla on the nose as well. Taste was obviously sour, but that came later for me. First is got a very woody, oak and vanilla taste, followed (and quickly) by the big tart cherry punch. Very sour, earthy and complex. Fruity like a cherry wine but without the rudeness of overwhelming alcohol to choke you. As it warms and i get used to it, more of the oak barrel flavors and a brett-barn floor and wet hay taste grow through. Effervescent enough to compliment the sourness, but not overwhelmingly so. Medium bodied. Overall, its great. A delicious, interesting beer. Glad to have tried it.

Pours from an elegant brown bottle with a well designed label. The color is a beautiful rose, cran-apple, copper color with tinges of orange edging. Low but persistent head with good lacing. The aroma is the best part of this beer. It's like a summer pond - murky fresh, funky, sweet and refreshing. The strong smell creeps out of the glass. Strong notes of wood, cherry pie and baking crust. The taste is much more tart than expected. The front is big, tart and lactic and strong tartness confined to the finish. The flavor is very prevalent and drips off your teeth. I'm missing a middle maltiness that would provide a balanced sweetness but overall very impressive. The beer is dry but not puckering with a nice carbonation presence. This isn't a session beer for sure, but it's delicious nevertheless and I could come back to this one several times again.

This 2L Growler was filled with 2005 La Folie @ Bier Stein, Eugene, OR aproximately 12 hours ago.

Upon popping open my flip top growler i am immediately struck by a strong sour aroma, reminiscent of the last gueze i remember having. Man, i've been enjoying sour beers lately so this is already off to a good start.

It pours into my NBB Abbey glass a deep copper color, with a very thin head that settles fairly quickly. ***EDIT: a second, more vigorous pour produced a 3/4" head that last about 30 seconds***

Smell is clearly sour, with some fruity sweetness tucked in back that reminds me of apple cider, maybe even with some cranberries.

Taste is "mouthpuckeringly" sour to start, hints of bitter apple, cranberries, the expected oak flavors seem to be a bit more muted in this 2 year old edition than i would've expected.

Mouthfeel is a complex jumble of smooth,sweet,fizzy, dry,sticky Very interesting but in a good way.

If you are a fan of sour beers, this one hits the spot. fairly low abv make this a somewhat sessionable beer. I will certainly have another glass of this tonight. I Would really like to get my hand on some bottles and put a few more years on it to see it further develop.

A- Pours a deep dark red hue with brown highlights, thin layer of sparse white bubbles, minimal lacing
S- Farmhouse funk, yeast, dark fruits, molasses, apples, vanilla, oak
T- Initial taste is tart and tangy fruits, cranberries and green apples followed by hints of dark fruits, mild malts, and oak, finishes sour and dry. . . absolutely delicious
M- Medium-bodied, watery texture, mild carbonation
D- This is one sharp Flanders Red Ale that is best enjoyed sipping and in lower quantities, the flavor profile is smooth yet complex, and great example of the style complemented well by wood aging

750 ml corked bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Poured a clear reddish brown.
Lots of carbonation, almost Champagne like. Fine white bubbled head.
Lots of sour fruit in the aroma, cherries and apple. Light bodied.
Very tart, lots of fruit flavors. Very dry. Didn't really taste the wood.
Nice version of the style, might not be everyone's cup of tea (or beer!)

Uncorking this beverage was a 30 second explosive fountain of foam. Afterwards, it poured a hazy dark tea color with a wispy head that's gone in a flash. Negligible lacing observed. The smell suggests a sour tyrant with an underlying sweet apple malt. Highly carbonated, the mouth feel is light-medium bodied. While "sour" is the word, there is a solid complexity in the nose and mouth feel. The flavor is masked by the sourness. The first Flanders Red Ale that I've experienced; it's quite similar to the both of the popular New Glarus Fruit/Vegetable products...but IMO the drinkability of this beverage is far less superior than the similar tasting New Glarus products, even though they are different styles.
