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.

On tap at fruit in the room 2011. Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, orange zest slight funk. Taste is tart peaches and citrus. Light and refreshing for a sour. I really like this one. This was a great beer for a intro sour drinker at the time.

Bottle @ Belgian Beer Fest Boston. I normally lie sour ales but the peach flavor was not my taste. That being said if you like sour fruit beers this is a decent brew.

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks! The beer is very clear and is a light yellow hue. The aroma is of wild yeast and tart fruits. Very enticing so far. The peaches come through in the flavor profile. The beer isnít as sour as the taste would indicate. The peaches add an element of sweetness that balances the tartness and wild yeast funk. Alcohol is hidden pretty well throughout. A decent offering and worth a try, especially if you like peaches. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2010

Narnad (1416) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Clean deep golden color, low white small bubbly head. Aroma has a strong floral presence, some grainy and apple tartness, sour not is fruity with a light horse blanket mustiness. Flavor has a strong, tart sour presence up front, smooth sweet apple and green grape middle with a mild horse blanket musty presence at the end. Lots of carbonation, modest body and a smooth texture. Overall a solid, well balanced beer with some modest sour notes.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Nice crisp clear peach and apricot coloured body with hardly any head at all and not much movement. Aroma of pungent sour apples, pears, apricots, yeast, hay and the easily undisputed gueuze smell - amazing and mouth watering. Medium-bodied; Nice sour and tart apple and peach flavour with a very odd meaty, full-bodied; malty flavour that has a lot of depth. Aftertaste shows the full-bodied syrupy and dense fruity flavour. Overall, not a bad choice for beer #3300, but has a bit of an odd full-bodied, syrupy flavour right after the initial taste that takes it away from a sour ale or a gueuze like flavour. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from City Beer in San Francisco, California on 29-June-2010 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-Novemeber-2011.
