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.

Bomber. Pours a hazy, medium gold, decent white head with okay retention. Nose is fruity funk, peaches, crabapple, chardonnay, earthy. Mouth is creamy and medium tart, lots of fruit (green apples, white grapes, peaches) grass, bread, white pepper, toasty oak, and a touch of sweetness on the back end. I like this one a lot.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, mousy, white head, with some lacing, over a hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is lactic acid, peach, apricot, slight cereal malts, light floral notes of fruit, no hops......taste is lightly sour, with peach, apricot, mango tones, hints of lemon, light cereal malt, light sweetness arrives late, finishing with light allspice notes and continuing mild sourness, no hops.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, carbonation adds a foamy mouthful. This is a lightly sour, fruity, refreshing beer. The sour/acid is really quite soft and quite lactic in type. This is a summer sour where light fruit notes are quite pleasant. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Tasted at Slutfest 5. Bottle must be damn near 5 years old. Held up fantastic. Clear golden pour with decent white head. Still has a wonderful dry sour tart peach flavor. Notes of tangerine as well. Perfect balance of sweet and dry. Absolutely wonderful beer.

Kinz (3514) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours a medium amber, some haze in mine. Slutfest! Aroma of funk sour, faint peach, horseblanket. Flavor more subdued, surprising peach sweetness, some tartness on the finish. Nice, wish it had gone a bit more sour. Touch watery on the finish, probably showing its age.

solidfunk (5291) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Great balance. Just enough sour citrus and bretta. Hazy golden pour with some food lacing. Some hay. Tangy finish that tapers off in sourness. Soft carbonation. Pretty good. Tap at Churchkey.
