3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Dark indigo & purple opaque body with a lavender head that fizzes out in seconds to absolutely nothing. Aroma of light blueberry, lemon, light oak, some acetic & lactic sourness, & light must. Flavor heavy with super sour lemon & berry acidic tartness, vinegar, strong yogurt, lacto bacteria, drying wood, cherry skin, & a dry, acidic finish. Burns a little going down, super acidic... But very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, much thanks! Real nice purple color without any head. Aroma is funky lambic yeast, oak, tart Berry and a shot ton of lactic sourness.
The flavor starts with a slap of lactic acid, followed by residual sugars in the center then it gets and light moldy cheese note. Aggressively sour pucker after the sip. This is going to give me a harsh heartburn. I guess if you like the style, it would be something you want to try but I didn’t get much blueberry in the flavor.

Best fruit sour this brewery made. Smashing great blueberry nose aroma flavor all way through to crisp dry light carbonation and finish. Perfect lambic funk and cheese and Brett. Great oaky maple character from cellaring. Get this when ever you can

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Side by side tasting of the Upland Sour Reserve, Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry and Kiwi Lambic.
Sour Reserve Blend 5: soft sour body, buttery, a tad floral as well 4.1/5
Kiwi: no real kiwi characteristics, extremely sour and lactic 2.9/5
Raspberry: one of the freshest raspberry aromas around. Afterwards all is sour and lactic 3.4/5
Strawberry: aroma is q bit chemical strawberry, the body and taste makes one remind of the Hanssens Oudbeitje, let it be a lot more sour 3.2/5
Blueberry: the nicest and tartest of the "Lambic" series we sampled 3.5/5
These beers are not lambics and should not be called as such. It is obvious that the sour character in this beer comes from lactic fermentation rather than a complex process of different families of bacteria and yeast. The aftertaste of all of the sampled "lambic" serie have a repelling sour finish...
