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 The Mayor Of Old Town last week. Clear light orange appearance with a white head. The aroma is funky, tart, fruity and sour. Notes of peaches, vanilla, tropical fruits and wood. Crisp, light sourness with a dry finish. Refreshing and easy to drink. Nice.

Pours a cloudy yellow gold on tap with minimal lacy white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet fruit and lactic sour. Taste is more toward the sour side, but still big and sweet, nice stuff. Mild carbonation, faint oak.

22 oz bottle- Pours hazy apricot orange with a nice white head. Aroma is peach puree, tart, lacto, nice, not overly sweet. The taste is funky, tart, medium sour, lacto, peaches are less in the taste, what i like here is the dryness and the sweetness blend nicely, neither overpowers the other. Body is medium, carbonation is normal for the style. Nice easy drinking sour, a truly complex, yet accessible to sour novices. Very good.

Golden color with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, peaches, and spices. The flavor is rather sour with peaches, citrus, and coriander. Overall a refreshing and sour beer but not over the top.
