COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole blueberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

I don’t even know if I should rate this as I only took one sip and knew it was not for me. All I can say is that it had a funky tart taste to it.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2008
A dusky pinkish red with an even whitish pink head, thinning to a ring quickly. Sweet nose. Tart to slighty fruity acidity. A small hint of biscuit. A deeper dark malt character seems to sneak in. Small blueberry. Nice body. Thin alcoholic sort of lightness with small even bubbles. Very dry sour character. Oaky and tannic. Acidic (but it didn’t burn my throat like the raspberry!). LEaves the mouth feeling rough. Definitely some fruit, but mostly an oaky finish. I like the fruity subtlety. Not bad! You’ve got to like them sour though!

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Sampled at "An evening with Pantanap #2". 750ml bottle. Thanks to Pantanap for these great lambics. Pours a clear red with a white head. Sour fruit in the nose. Yeast acidity and sugars. Tart fruit flavors. Blueberries, mulberries, dark fruit flesh. Clean flavors, dissipate quickly, but a really good beer.

One of my highlights at YEHA. Poured light purplish color with lively head. Aroma is of tart blueberry, funk. Taste has a wonderful tartness, brett funk, woody, with a very nice balance of blueberry. Crisp, dry and great. I want more.

Yeha 07. Shared by Mrbendo. Thanks Todd! Pours a nice light off purple with a foamy fizzy head. Aroma is tons of tart fresh blueberries, but not like the blueberry character you get in a regular fresh blueberry beer- this had some nice tart hints, wierd yeasty phenolics- almost getting plasticy but not quite as severe as Cantillon- with a nice earhty bretty funk to it- can tell it will be sour. Good tart sour flavor- with lot sof blueberries, earth and dust, with bret farmhouse notes, wooded to hell- and some fresh oak vanilla which takes away form the lambic properties- still funky though. Nice tart finish and a lot of lactic and maybe even malic acidity? Harsh yet delightful acid on the tongue. I was really loving this beer. I really wish I could get some more. My last note said just as good or even better than the Cantillon Blåbær!!

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle shared by BBB63. Cranberry juice appearance (I would say blueberry juice appearance, but blueberry juice apparently looks like cranberry juice, hence...) with a thin to moderate off-white head. Aroma same as Upland’s other lambics, dusty and cobwebby, funky, with a firm tartness. There is a nice blueberry characteristic evident beneath the funk here. Tart, sour body, with a good crisp mouthfeel reminiscent of sparkling juices. Also dusty, molded hay and blueberry. Quick finish. Very good.

Bottle cbus-x shared by ogglethorp, thanks again Brian! Pours sort of a dark salmon color with a white head. Aroma of light oak, funk, oak, and blueberry. Flavors of sour/sweet blueberry, oak, and pale malt. Medium body, sour/fruity/vinous with a dry sour finish.

alobar (2755) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Red with bluish tints-not quite a shade of purple. Soapy pink head with a yeasty aroma. Taste has hints of blueberry, cherry and yeast with a sour aftertaste. Nice lambic.
