New Belgium Eric’s Ale Returns to Lips of Faith Series

New Belgium Eric's Ale

New Belgium Eric’s Ale makes a return to the brewery’s Lips of Faith Series lineup this month.

New Belgium Eric’s Ale is a sour ale “spiked” with peaches, named for the brewery’s Eric Salazar. To create New Belgium Eric’s Ale, Salazar blended threads of Felix, a sour base beer, and a golden strong ale. (Plus peaches, of course.)

Eric’s Ale pours a hazy golden-orange with subtle fuzzy ripe peach and vanilla aromas. It’s both sweet and tart and finishes warm and crisp. Woody notes are drawn out from the oak foeders to round out this middle-of-the-road sour. 

New Belgium Eric’s Ale is now available in 22 ounce bottles and draft, across the brewery’s distribution network.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Peaches, Oak Aged.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Return: July, 2015

7% ABV, 16 IBUs
