Slightly foggy yet bubbly light amber with a large off-white foam settling to a thin film and fuzzy blanket leaving camo lace all over.

Smell is toast and a little metallic of cherry and peach.

Taste isn't much different, starting a little bready, then going into that metalic cherry-peach, with an almost wine oak swallow but not quite. There's only a slight amount of wood, which does help dry out the finish. The body is otherwise crisp and medium-thin. Again it's more like fresh cherry than peach, with a slightly tart sourness.

A: Moderately light peach aroma, light funk, with moderately light tartness and wood.

A: Light orange color, hazy, with a thinnish white head that has decent retention.

T: Moderately light peach flavor, light funk with a moderately light tartness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderately light carbonation, with a soft mouthfeel.

O: Tasty; luckily this bottle was stored at a pretty cold continuous temperature, so the fruit aroma and flavor was still prominent. Always have loved Eric’s Ale on draft and it was good to see the beer back in bottles. The beer has a great balance between fruit, funk and light sourness.
