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 Dr. Billís. The sourness and peach complement each other extremely well. This is an easy drinking beer with lots of nice flavor.

Looking forward to trying this. Tried at Churchills on tap. Yellow. Smooth silky lactic acid mouthfeel. Big white foamy head. Like compunction, but less sour. Perfect sweet sour balance. Peachy delicious. One of my favorites.

On-tap today at OíBrienís. Pours a clearish light orange. Just a very few, fizzy white bubbles. Smells a bit sour and light fruity, not necessarily peach flavors, just fruity flavors. Tastes sour malty up front with lots of sour peachish flavor through the middle to the finish. Sweet yeasty flavor throughout. After awhile the fruitiness almost starts to taste like apple. Pretty good sour brew, goo dand sour but still drinkable to someone who isnít a huge sour fan.

100th Rating of this beer. Tap @ OíBrienís on 4/14/08, Iíve been wanting to try this beer for a really long time and now I got, yippee. Served in a trappist glass. Pours gold orange with a bright white head. Nose is like fou fonne light, peachy and tart. Taste is tart and sweet and more sour than peachy. Though peach is there and it lingers nicely. Great Brew.

Our server at the Chocolate Bar kept this a secret. Itís not on the menu. Itís not with the main taps. Itís to the side. Noticing our 06 La Folie and love of sour, she asked if we wanted this too. Of course. Sour, but light. Not intense like La Folie. Very nice overall.

draft @ collins pub - warned a few times by the bartender about how "sour" it would be, but really this was quite pleasant; clear copper with red hints and foamy head; aromas of fruit, peach, cherry and some sour mix in; drinks very smooth with rich texture; just slight touch of tartness; yummy

22oz bottle filled from the tap at NBB. Pours perfectly clear pale copper, with a quick whisp of a white head. Within seconds the head was gone with no trace of lace or any remains of foam. Aromatics are tart, sour and fruity. A great balance of acid, citrus, and brett. Peaches are there, but have faded to a more general fruitiness. Mouthfeel is barely spritzy with a sharp edge of crispness. The pallet has a subdued sourness for a lambic, but this lends well to the drinkability of the beer, as does the dry, fruity character. A mere hint of hard peach candies is as much residuals as you will find, as the beer is really dry for the amount of fruit. Bitterness is negligent as is any hopping, with the tart fruit taking center stage. Finishes with a lingering puckering note and the pulp of the peach near the pit.
