Eric was created from a parti-gyle of the Anniversary Ale 10. Parti-gyle is the second (or third) runnings from the lauter tun of a strong beer resulting in successively weaker beers.
The parti-gyle still resulted in the beer at 9.0% abv. This rich, strong and complex beer is full-bodied, sweet and malty, and is complemented by alcohol tones, a firm bitterness and a spicy, clove-like characteristic from the saison yeast.
Best enjoyed with a rich Flemish stew.
