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. 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. Find out why it's considered one of the best sour beers around.View all products by New Belgium Brewing CompanyCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Haven’t opened yet but I will. This one is a little harder to find because it more rare from a Colorado brewer. Glad to find and will definitely enjoy it as I have in the past.
This was the first sour I ever tried. So, there's some emotional value that doesn't factor in here. I've had better sours. Yet, I'm having troubled recalling one right now. Tastes great. New Belgium did a great job on this one. From the barrels it's put in to the sour you crave. It's all there. My only problem.... Why does the bartender/ waiter always ask if I know it's a $30 beer. A little pricey yet, worth it. Drink this one and go back to an $8 Two Rows Huckleberry sour... Then let me know what you think of that $8 beer and if the price difference is worth it. Great sour beer.

La Folie is not only my favorite sour beer, it's my standard. Very few can compete.
This was my first sour beer and will always be the one I compare every other sour to. Try this beer!
