This is a rolling review over the past three years...

4/2012 - Strong crystal clear golden color. Amazing clarity for two years old aged at 65 degrees... Very mild peach scent with strong awesome sour scent of vinegar. Fruity-ness is mild with strong nose, so smooth. Brilliantly tart with mild sourness and sweetness on the lower side of things. Oak has really came forward and brought out an amazing tart smoothness. Perfect mouthfeel, highly acidic, just as a sour should be. Thank goodness for originally high carbonation, it's mellowed wonderfully! AMAZING BREW!!! Said I'm all out :(

7/2011 - I'm currently enjoying a bottle from last May, it's held up wonderfully, slightly mellowing out the sour into greater flavor...

Original Review 5/2010 -

A: Mildly golden with a thin biscuit of head remaining on top of the brew. Soapy lacing is choosy as to where is stays. Body is thin and swirls wonderfully, with the best of them.

S: Strong sour peach smell with slight citrus and mild hop, if any.

T: Very sour with relaxing peach undertones. Slight spice and malt too. Unlike any "sour" beer I've ever had. Mellow yet exorbitant flavors you're truly able to enjoy and relax with.

M: Good flavor with cheek puckering ability's, slightly over carbonated, but over comes carbonation issues with extreme sour flavors.

D: AMAZING, I'm constantly drawn back to the glass for another sip of heaven time after time.

CHEERS!!!

Dear NB,

This is my plea. Please, Please, PLEASE, brew MOHR Eric's Ale ASAP, thanks.

I had this beer at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA and had it on multiple occasions during it's run on tap. This became my "go-to" beer from the Belgian bar upstairs.

Normally I wouldn't seek out a sour or tart beer, but the peach and tart aromas drew me in. The initial sip is a bit overwhelming and then it settles in for a wonderful mouthfeel and fantastic taste. It's very refreshing and doesn't feel heavy at all. I paired it with various foods at the Brick Store and it went well with them all.

I can't wait for them to put this back on tap. It is one of my favorite beers I've drank in 2010.

Had this on tap july 2nd at falling rock tap house. yum

Pours super hazy amber with a 1" white head in a stem-like beer glass. Clears pretty good & leaves insane lacing & pretty good head retention

Smell: Sour & berry notes

T: Tart & sour with ras/black/berry notes. Apple peel notes follow then pepper. Finishes tart & quenching

MF: Spritzy, puckery with super carbonation

Drinks pretty easy, as good as any Lambic I had in BE. Has nice summer time twang to it. Would love to see a bottled version of this (assume a lot of aging & blending) to see how it holds up. This is one that will hold its own on the world stage (taste-wise) IMO
