bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Moderately tart with a lot of sweet peach fruitness. Oaky and reasonably complex. Not amazing, but not far off either. Solid mildly sour offering that I’d imagine would appeal to many drinkers.

Lactic sour aroma and flavor with an almost funky peachy taste in there too. Peach is a nice authentic peach but it almost adds a funk with the sour. Not too sour, maybe 4 or 5 of 10 sour. Some woody flavors. Nice moderate sour. Not too full bodied and sour but not too light of a sour either.

Hazy golden with a wee white ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Really pleasant nose of peach and sour yeast and a wee kiss of barrel. Strong flavor of peach and apricot and tart sourness, a touch of wood on the dry tart fruity finish. More complex than I thought it would be. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy light orange color with an off white head. Aroma is mildly tart, dry. Flavor has a nice tartness to it, but well balanced with a tropical fruity sweetness. Solid beer.

Drinking Eric’s Ale caused me to ask a crucial question. How did New Belgium manage to liquefy Sweet Tarts? Eric’s Ale has that perfect mix of sweet/sour dynamics. Even the texture is similar. Eric’s Ale is bone dry from the alcohol yet spritzy from the carbonation. While I’d love to taste this again to pick up on more of the complexities, I totally enjoyed the candy-like flavors. johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2015
I do not care for sours at all....that being said of the handful of this style that i have tried this is by far the most enjoyable....not to sour and flavor was decent. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Falling Rock.
Pours hazy golden with low white head. Aroma is of citrus, acidity, sour raspberries. Taste is of acidity, citrus, sour raspberries. Palate: Light-medium body. Warming alcohol. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite good. Sourness is reasonnable. fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Hazy gold pour with one finger creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and tart peach, light lactic and acetic notes, a hint of cereal and just a touch of smoky, dusty wood. Flavor is tart peach, light slightly Sulphur smokiness, a touch of toast, vanilla, light lactic notes, a little dry hay, just a hint of old dried oak and light breadiness. Light to medium body, dry, but slightly juicy, acidic feel throughout, medium, blanketing and fairly sharp carbonation, which suits the beer perfectly. Really god stuff, maybe not as much depth as I was hoping for, but enough to make it interesting and quite refreshing and easy going. Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2015
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.
