Beer Review: New Belgium La Folie Sour Brown
I'm a fan of sour beers. I find them to be exceptionally easy to drink; they settle my stomach and leave me feeling relaxed and very comfortable. That stated, I had some La Folie at Lucky Baldwin's last night, and I was extremely impressed. The flavor evolves from a pungent sweet-sour cherry, and then mellows on the palate to form a creamy, rich, nutty aftertaste that lingers deliciously. I think this beer is probably the best offering that I have sampled from New Belgium -- even better than their excellent 1554. Find it on tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Old Town Pasadena!
