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.

Tap at The Oak. Aroma is peaches, vanilla, muffins, oak and some sour lemon. Tastes a little more sweet than sour but not by much. Juicy peach, apple juice, lemon peel, and big vanilla. Medium body. Light tartness in the finish. Really good.

On tap at Old Line Bistro, Beltsville MD. Appearance was hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Aroma is fruity, sour, and funky aroma with a scent of citrus, funk, and oak. Taste is a nicely fruity, funky, and moderately sour taste with notes of citrus, funky yeast, and oak. Palate is medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall, a very good sour ale and its not even my favorite style of beers.

Cloudy orange pour with a bright white head about a half inch high. Aroma of bitter citrus rind, apricot, fresh peaches, cream. Peach carries out to the flavor, sharing with oaky wood, white wine, barnyard funk, pollen, honey and apricot. The sourness is subtle but great, refreshing summer beer.

Doesn't taste of peach but it's a great beer if you like sours. Not hoppy. It is fruity as expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Doofgoblin (451) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2015
This is one of my favorite sours. The combination of the peach and earthy, woody sour flavors is perfect. The aroma is full of peach with hints of musty wood and lactic acid. Taste is tart/sour peach with hints of that wood sourness that is characteristics of NBís sour beer collection. Finish is light and refreshing. Itís really over the top delicious.

DarkMagus (473) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Pours a hazy peach color with minimal head. Aroma is of pineapple, peach, and barnyard funk. Flavors were of tropical fruits, pineapple, peach, and pear. A touch of funky woodiness. Mouth-wateringly sour. Mouthfeel was pleasantly full-bodied, slick and syrupy with some good fuzzy carbonation. Well-done!

nearbeer (4288) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2015
650 ml. bb April 2, 2017. Mild haze on the burnt orange body that sports an enduring thin film of bubbles. Aroma is fresh peaches, honey, lightly funked up white grapes. Tastes the same, with some added notes of lightly spicy flower pollen and vanilla. Light-medium body has a nice balance and medium-high carbonation. Nice blending Eric!

Tap @ Brixx Asheville - hazy gold, white head, some lacing on the glass. Very mellow sourness balanced with the sweetness of the peaches. Nice!
