Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy red with thick frothy pink head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong cherry skin, oak, and vinegar. Thin mouthfeel with strong tart cherry, funk, oak, and very sour finish. Very good.

750ml bottle, huge thanks to Jackson. Shared with Katie B. Bottled 10/10/13. Batch number appears to read "12.08". Huge awesome cherry aroma, lightly spicy. Katie describes it as "cherry-almond; black cherry." Fantastic, very enjoyable level of sour, and big oaky tannin. Good moderate to bigger sour taste, moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. A lightly slick finish which works well to bring out that awesome sour cherry flavor in the finish... Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Great mouthwatering kind of spicy sour finish. Awesome hazy kind of darker red color. Little off-white head. Lace is not notable, but overall appearance looks pretty awesome. Great color. Overall, another very satisfying Upland Lambic. I had high expectations, and this met them.

Sample at fauxbab. Glowing reddish pink. Completely translucent. Almost looks solid. Quite tart and sour but not over the top. My favorite upland so far.
