COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

22 oz. bottle. Pours an almost clear gold color with a huge white head that quickly settles to nothing. Strong sour fruit aroma. Medium-light body, taste is of apples & pears with a dry tart finish.

The aroma is fantastic, except I donít get a ton of peach; more apple orchard. Appearance is bright and orange with some haze. Taste is wonderful, very well balance, and the peach is noticeable, but not center stage. Just wish there were more peach, but the beer is excellent.

Peach coloured, a bit cloudy. Very nice tartness. Balanced and very drinkable. Pretty good carbonation and mouthfeel.

Draught at Harryís Hofbrau in San Jose. Clear copper with minimal white head. Moderate peach puree and slightly neutral oak in both the aroma and flavor. Tasty and well balanced.

Bottle in a tulip thanks to Reynolds. Pours transparent copper with a white head. Aroma of peach, a light tartness, pale malts, and some sweetness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Pretty boring for a peach sour.

Pretty generic tasting fruit beer. Crystal clear pale copper color. Aroma of sweet peach and light bready malts. Taste is mild tartness high sweetness and a lot of fruit. Not bad but more of a fruit beer than a wild ale.

Thechasm442 (759) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle served in a tulip. Appearance is a hazy golden orange with no head or lacing. Aroma is peaches and something tart I cannot put my finger on. Taste is peach, tart fruit, and oak. Thin to the palate and it doesnít linger very long. Nice for the style.

Just as it says, this is a good sour beer for folks that don't like sours. It's a little watery and plain, but it's nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
