COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lambics have been made in Belgium for over 500 years and we are honoring this tradition by brewing our own Indiana version. Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole cherries, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Upland Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

Bottle:(9-14, batch J14) Pours bubbly, light cherry-red with a quick, pinkish cap. Lactic, bright cherry aroma. Taste is tart, spicy-sour cherry. Nicely dry and biting. Leaves a wonderful, almost acidic sting on the tongue. Excellent.

Bacterial (2672) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Pour at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison. Just happened to be the first booth I stopped at and this was one of the nicest beers of the day for me. Massive cherry nose. Red pour. Big sourness while being super fruity and jammy. Yum.

markwise (5081) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle courtesy of a kind soul at the Tampa weekly gathering. Pours a nice hazy red-pink with a white head. Nose is big cherry, some lacto, some funk, some tartness. Flavor is similar with lovely cherry and tartness, nor extremely tart or acidic, but a nice primer to sour beer. Light to medium in body and very nic overall.

koleminer20 (1808) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. I liked this one. The pour is a bright red/ruby color with a large pink head. The aroma is huge on cherries. I think that’s why I like it so much. The cherries dominate and then there is a great tart sourness to it. The flavor is more of the same. Heavily dominated by cherry, with a good spice in there before it goes sour and fades into a little lemon maybe. The mouth feel is good. Dry, sharp, and tart with a great carbonation. The aftertaste is a little woody, but still sour cherry. Awesome
