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.

Gentle tart peach and tannic oak aroma. Appears hazy deep light orange, big white foam, some lace. Tastes of tart and sweet peach followed by a gentle, lingering tannic oak. Mildly fizzy, thick, little oily mouthfeel. Overall, very good when it warms up, hides itself when it is cold.

TheBeerGod (5593) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle. Peach colored body with a short fizzy white head. Strong sour peach, slight funky yeast and woody notes in the nose. Taste is sweeter than the aroma would let on with slightly sour peach notes, light wood, light funky yeast and fermenting fruit notes. Body is light with a faint, bubbly carbonation. Light acidic notes and mild dryness during the finish. Ends with more sour peach, berry notes, fermenting fruit, wood notes and yeast.
