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.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 FOBAB í07....appearance: crisp and clear golden brown....aroma: white wine, grapes, sour apple, with little to no peach.....taste: white grapes, wine, some apple, and again very little to no peach.....on an ordinary day this would be nice but this was my least favorite offering of the bunch i tried that day.

tap at the maproom on 8/24/08. transparent medium orange brown pour with a thin fading frothy white head...aroma was a combination of peached and tart white grapes.... flavors were tart, crisp and refreshing peaches and lemons. lively mouthfeel with a bitter dry finish that lingers on the palate. earthy spicy bitterness in the finish. very good 8/4/8/4/15

FoBAB 2007. What a grand finale for me. I was done rating at this point, but this beer so enlivened my palate that I buckled down and pulled out the old note pad. I needed to samples to do this justice and I had the most impeccable handwriting of the day for this beer! Anyway... Oh, and I usually loath fruit beers. But this is not just any fruit beer! A rich macro yellow with a thin white head. Clear. La Folie/Terrior nose, but lighter this Terroir stylie and a little bit peachy. Very light malt character. A little lactobacillis saltiness. Light body, but not watery. Low carbonation but not flat. Big tat beer!! Light clean malt, but La Folie kind of tart!! Maybe thereís small oak, but the critters own this here beer. Tart finish. Oddly the peaches come out in the aftertaste. This is so biting, that it refreshes. This is the lemonade of the gods! Tart, yet juicy. This ainít your mammyís peach beer!

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2007
BBF 07. Tap. Pours a surprisingly clear, mod carbonation, nice thick white head over a peachy orange body. Wierd funk, cat piss, peach, brett, and sour tartness- a bit of cobwebbiness as well. Good sour peach flavor, but not intense or sharp like the festina lents, and no where close to a fou foune sourness. Light sweet peach flavor- some brett, and funk, and a bit earthy-dirtiness. Moderate to heavy sourness, but nothing too sharp or over-the-top on this one as I was expecting. Still, it was cool to try and I liked it.
