Ericís Ale, named for long time New Belgium brewer Eric Salazar, combines a dry, sour beer aged up to three years in oak foeders with a semi sweet, higher alcohol base beer. The resulting blend is re-fermented with peach juice, creating a smooth ale with subtle peach tones and a warm, spicy finish. The aroma has pleasant hints of vanilla and tropical fruit, the wood characteristics are present but nicely muted.

650ml bottle from Armanetti in Huntley. Split with the namesake. Cellared 2 months. Yellowish orange with a white head. Aroma has tropical fruits, peach, some funk, sweet malt and tangy yeast. Taste follows. More peachy and belgian-y than the nose. Medium bodied. Finishes tangy sweet with a touch of bitterness for some balance. Decent. More fruity than wild. 13.8

At GABF 2015. They described it as wood aged rather than barrel aged. Lightly sour, just a little. refreshing. There is peach for sure. Low carbonation, fine for a three year old beer. I did not realize the alcohol was so high.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; a slightly translucent bright golden orange with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; semi-tart and semi-sweet with a nice peach presence alongside notes of oak and mild vanilla. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel that picks up a touch of fuzziness from the peach. Not all that sour, but good beer.

Wifeís draft at Victoriaís Gastropub in Columbia, MD served in a tulip glass; tad hazy, slightly orange hued golden color with thin white lacing. Aroma notes of peach fruit, citrus, sour tart and tad oak. Taste adds more fruitiness, light vanilla, earthy yeast and faint spices. Medium body, low carbonation, dry, tannic with tart fruit finish. Tastes lighter than itís ABV, somewhat subtle but still an excellent sour.

Bomber. Peach/fruit juice flavors really pop with this midly tart brew. Barrel is noticeable and adds a bit of depth. A bit costly, but nice nonetheless.

bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Moderately tart with a lot of sweet peach fruitness. Oaky and reasonably complex. Not amazing, but not far off either. Solid mildly sour offering that Iíd imagine would appeal to many drinkers.

Mep3222 (994) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Lactic sour aroma and flavor with an almost funky peachy taste in there too. Peach is a nice authentic peach but it almost adds a funk with the sour. Not too sour, maybe 4 or 5 of 10 sour. Some woody flavors. Nice moderate sour. Not too full bodied and sour but not too light of a sour either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
