I remembered really liking a sample of this beer I had on draft a while back, I hope the bottle is just as good...
Poured this one into my tulip glass. The color on this one was a light amber with white head that recedes fairly fast, although it does maintain a small ring throughout the session.
Eric's Ale smells tart and fruity. Although there is definitely more tart smell than sweet. As it warmed up, it had a little funkiness to it. Pretty tame for a wild ale, but decent.
The initial taste had a mild acidity, the base beer seems pretty clean, maybe a belgian single. No hops are present in the taste. Erics ale is just clean and refreshing. I can taste a little bit of oak as the beer warms a little.
This beer had really good mouthfeel, good carbonation, light to medium body that was good for a beer this mild and refreshing.
This one is really drinkable, great intro beer to wild ales or fruit beers. My gripe with this beer is that it was to mild. Not enough tartness or funk for my taste. The bottle version wasn't as sour as the tap version I had previously. Good beer, but not something I would stock up on.
