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.

Pours black, opaque with a tan head. Tastes slightly sour with a good balance of earthy malt, a hint of cocoa, oak & tart peach on the finish. Ingenious.

From notes. Enjoyed at Dougís house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a dirty golden yellow, hazy, with a thinner white head that leaves pretty quickly. The aroma is quite vinous and woody. There is not a whole lot of fruit happening here. Iím not sure why in the hell this is on a list of peach must-haves. The flavor is much of the same. Lots of barrel and a tropical fruit before the tart peaches come lumbering in. Itís light bodied with a crisper carbonation, which is about the best thing I can say here. The aftertaste is tart peach and lots of woodiness. Itís not the best thing on any accord. Sigh.

UXO (1882) - CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium gold with a short, short-lived fizzy off-white head, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tart vinous, stone fruit, woody. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, light bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, low carbonation, off-dry mildly tart finish. (3/5) So, the bottle says itís a ďsour beer for those who donít like sour beers and a fruit beer for those who donít like fruit beers.Ē This comes perilously close to the truth in the contrapositive: itís not really a sour beer for those who DO like sour beers, or a fruit beer for those who DO like fruit beers. Thatís not to say itís bad, as such, but itís more like a bottle of supermarket chardonnay, than a beer. A light vinous tart aroma presents upon decapping, and pretty much sets the stage for the white wine character that follows. Stone fruit is present, but not well-defined. Thereís even a light, gose-like saltiness toward the end, making this very much a hybrid style, but itís more a case of ďtoo many cooksĒ than anything else. A bit muddled, but ultimately not unpleasant. (13/20)
