3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

"sampled at Sac Brewing Co. iíve yet to have a current La Folie (the base for this beer), the three iíve had were at least several months to 2 1/2 years old...the older, the more sour. That being said, this beer had none of the woody aspects the 2008 La Folie had. Great complex nose, though. Sour, a little, but the peach was a nice addition here. Same body, maybe even a little tamer (ie-less carbonated). Flavor was good too, but lacking the sour kick all 3 La Folies had. So overall, a hair less than LF in the flavor, mellower for sure, but still a very good beer with a wonderful aroma."

Thanks for this one in a trade with a77cj7, cheers Chris!
A: pours a nice apple juice color with the same degree of clarity. Less than single finger soap sud head which dissipates within the minute leaving a thin, broken sheet of the same on the surface. No lacing.
S: Up front sour beer. Nicely soured with sweetness from the peaches coming through and offering a nice complement. Not overbearing, but good acuity. Nice.
T: Tart, but again, somewhat sweet. Not as sweet as say Duchess de Bourg, which is good. The beer offers lower peach tones than I had anticipated, but the hue still exists. Finish has a slight funk to it. Again, nice. A few minutes into this and the peaches are more evident. This is also good.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation. Makes mouth water with the tartness.
D: Very drinkable. Actually a sour I wouldnít be reserved to serve with food. Very good.

On tap a Brouwers Cafe sour fest. Pours a clear yellowish orange color with a medium white head that leaves really good lacing. Smells of peach, oak, vanilla and tropical. Tastes of the same things in the smell but was very tart. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation and a dry finish. It was great to finally try this sour. New Belgium definitely knows how to make great sours. The sour, peach, and oak combo worked really well together.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clearer amber with an orange hue and decent brighter white head. The aroma brings clean sweeter peaches, not a big presence of tart yeast as expected. The flavor brings lightly sweetened and tart peaches that are soft on the tongue, not puckering at all with a light tangy ending that goes down smooth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle: pours a clear deep golden with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Has a tart vinous oaky nose with good floral peach accents. Starts with good fullness and effervescence with some light malty sweetness and complex puckering vinous oak with some light fruitiness before a drier crisp finish. Well-balanced and true to style.
