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.

Bottle from an unnamed source. Nice hazy orange color, pleanty of white lasting head. Light peach aroma. Taste is peach with gentle tartness. This is one the most drinkable beers I have ever had.

koleminer20 (2699) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2016
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.

At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is peach, barrel, sweet, tart, slight funk. Appearance is golden amber, clear, white head. Taste is peach juice, woody, funk, tart, slight sour. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, crisp, woody peach juice sour aftertaste. Overall, good but not great.

UXO (1588) - 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)

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 15, 2016
Sour peach and salty tart aromas come from this clear medium yellow brew with no head. Tart indeed with a citrus and fruity underlying note. It's smooth medium bodied brew low carb. Has a bit of sweetness hidden behind the tart.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big fizzy head. Aromas of stone fruit, grass, and subtle hints of smoke. Nice tart start with peachy notes followed by the woody finish.

Bottle. A slightly hazed yellow golden color with a white head. A strong peach aroma but balanced well enough against the sour and barrel aging.

KUEric (947) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2016
A wonderful sour. Some green apple, pear, yeast, wheat, vinegar that all come together in a very tart little beer.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Pint bottle from Big Red Liquor, Indianapolis. Pours a muddy dark, orange/gold body with minimal fizzy head that disappears quickly. Nose of fruit juice, yeast, and effervescence. The sour bite is evident immediately upon imbibing with notes of citrus, peach, and candy all around. The sour yeast lingers. High carbonation and light body. A refreshing and interesting brew.
