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.

Bottle at home in celebration of the ending of busy season, courtesy of Todd......Huge thanks for this one man!!!! Pour is hazy orange with a fluffy cream head and decent lacing. Big sour peaches, tangerines, orange peel, biscuit, straw, light grass, lemon peel, a touch of funk, and green apples in the aroma. Taste is big fruit skin, peaches, tart fruits, biscuit, pears, apples, light pepper, hay, a touch of funk, and lacto with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. This one held up well and had great sourness, although, I am sure the fruit flavors would have been much more apparent when fresh - still a great beer and held up well over time. I am glad I got a chance to rate this one.

Catching up with an old 2010 rating - thanks to Jwale73! Pours a deep gold with a mild head that goes to a ring. Smell is malt sweetness, sour, peach, some fruitiness. Taste is a nice play between fruit and tart sour with a slightly dry ending. Light body with nice carbonation - finely structured.

22 oz. bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip. A: Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head forming on the pour. Some sticky lace is left behind. S: Light sourness on the nose. Some sweet peach flesh with a pale malt backing. Slightly yeasty. T: Mild pucker upon the initial sip with some peach pit and light peach juice. Pale malts with a sour lemon grass as well. The flavors are all very light. M: Light bodied and dry with a medium carbonation level. O: This has definitely faded. Still dry and easy drinking however. Worth a tick. Serving type: bottle

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
