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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 26, 2010
In short: A very good peach fruit ale with a refreshing tartness/acidity. Very good but not really a Sour/Wild ale.
How: Bottle 22oz. Exact age unknown (probably 6 months old or so). Given to me by RCL, thanks a lot Ray. Split three-way
The look: Clear golden blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose is full of fresh peaches. Taste is straightforward but very pleasant. Peaches and more fresh peaches, a bit sweet, followed by a medium acetic acid tartness. The peaches and tartness in the finish add a pineapples sensation. Very easy to drink. To me this is more a fruit beer than a Sour/wild ale (current ratebeer classification). I shared this beer (Ericís Ale) with my sibling Eric on his birthday. It seemed appropriate. People keep saying that Eric and I are brothers. Even my parents say we are brothers. I donít know why they say that? I mean, itís pretty obvious that we are both white.
