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 at De Garde. Pours a bright reddish pink color with a medium white head. A big woody and sour cherry nose, something akin to garbage. The flavor is again a funky garbage or overripe fruit note, funky, sweet cherries, light sourness. Woody. Interesting. The nose reminds me a bit of Cantillon Don Quijote. Odd, interesting.

This one was way better than their raspberry lambic. Great cherry nose. No real head and minimal carbonation. Flavors of cheery all way through with excellent dry funk lambic palate and finish. Superb.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Bottle: Rich mahogany & ruby tinted body, lavender head that fades to nothing instantly. Aroma of huge cherry skin, acidic berry, lemon, sour yogurt, lacto, & light perfume. Nice spicy cherry & berry mélange, along with a solid lemon flavor up front, fading into an exceedingly sour finish of acidic stone fruit, red grape, strong balsamic vinegar, lactic sourness, & an acetic acid sharpness. Burns a little on the way down. Good, crazy sour, strong acidity.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a cloudy blood red with no real head. The nose has bright cherry notes with a nice bit of funk. The taste brings in bright, fresh dark cherry flavor, cherry skins, a bit of sweetness, and a great balancing tartness. Light on the palate with a nice clean finish. Well done.

jackl (5343) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Sample @ RBWG Grand Tasting. Amber pour with a small head. Nose is huge, full of rich cherry meat. Nice and robust. Sweet/tart profile. Loads of cherry juice, a bit of acid. A bit of cracked pepper. Light body, zippy. Legitimately great stuff here.

ben4321 (4383) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Location: 750 ml bottle, 8/1/14, Bottled 10/10/13, Batch 12.08

Aroma: The aroma is tart and fruity, vinegar, some oak, and plenty of acidic notes
Appearance: it pours a murky looking reddish-brown color with a clean, lasting tan head
Flavor: Flavor-wise, this one is rather sour, not much sweetness at all, oak, vinegar
Palate: it has a medium-plus body, with a lively carbonation, and a mouth-puckering finish
Overall Impression: Interesting beer. It is quite sour, not to the point of making it undrinkable or anything, but it could have used a little balance. The cherry flavor is completely overpowered, I would have liked to see it shine through a little more.
