new belgium la folie

la folie bottle

over thanksgiving AP and I brought a couple of interesting brews over to her aunt and uncle’s place to drink during some football games.

  • we both decided that la folie, a flanders red from new belgium, would get some reactions and be an interesting conversation piece.
  • la folie is definitely a crowd favorite at overcarbed headquarters – it has very well balanced vinegary tartness that is refreshing and not overwhelming, with a great oaky malt backbone.
  • in fact, when it comes to the style, I actually prefer this colorado offering to many from the source.  it is a consistently awesome beer, and is now surprisingly obtainable thanks to the lips of faith distribution series.  recommended pairings can be found here.
  • were EP and TP fans?  judging from comments such as “are you trying to poison me?!” and an allusion to “donkey piss,” I think they might need a few more glasses to get a better idea of the style 😉
