DLD 2k10. Pour to a hazy straw body with a thin white head. The aroma is sour kiwi and simple pale malts. The flavor is tart kiwi, strawberry, and some pale malts. Sweet.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum. This was a delayed gusher (but luckily I didnít lose too much). Pours a super cloudy dirty orange with a thick white head that quickly subsides. Tons of yeast sediment. Aroma of potent funk and sour fruit (kiwi I guess). Flavor of sharp citrus, kiwi, and sour funk in the finish. Great palate for a lambic-- just a touch of acidity but overall very drinkable. This was one of the most enjoyable lambics/sours I have had in awhile. 8/4/8/4/16 [4.0/5]

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle sample at DLD 2010. Hazy gold pour with no head. Tart and acidic nose with a bit of citrus and some tropical fruit (kiwi, no doubt) influence. Flavor is tropical fruit and a refreshingly tart citrus finish.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Josh in the parking lot at Dark Lord Day. Pours a milky hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Musky kiwi, lots of musk. Lightly funky. Medium bodied, wheaty. Earthy and light. Tart sourness on the finish.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 Bottle shared by the Upland crew at DLD í10- thanks again, Lahti! Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a tiny white head that fizzes out quickly. Aroma of sour yeast, wood, barnyard funk, and hard-to-distinguish fruit notes that must include kiwi. The kiwi is certainly more noticeable in the flavor, which is balanced nicely with some oak, sour lemon citrus, barnyard funk, and caramel. Sweet and tart. Acidic mouthfeel, with a dry finish. Pretty neat. Re-Rate: 5/10/14: Kiwi is hard to pick out, and this one is super acetic. Still pretty good, though, just not on the level of some of the other fruits.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Batch 1. Thanks to sliffy. Pours a golden hazed pour, small whitish head dies to a minimal film. Aromas are lightly sour. A bit funky, grainy malts, light kiwi fruit mingles. Fruity. Initial is fruity, decent sour acidity, lemon and kiwi, a touch of bretty funk, solid grainy malts, a nice sessionable sour goes down well. Fruity, with decent sourness overall, is growing into itís own. Tasty.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2010
750mL bottle at DLD. Poured clear medium golden with basically no head. The aroma was very sour with oak and lemon zest all around.. there was a little hit of fruit on the back, but it wasnít definitively kiwi (which is good because kiwi is terrible). The flavor was sour as well with grainy kiwi throughout (the fruit wasnít that well integrated into the drink).. lemon and oaky sourness plus some of the grainy kiwi on the finish. Sour throughout the palate, but it carried a bit too much sweetness beyond that.. the oak worked, but as a whole it didnít really come together.

SrSilliGose (3257) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 25, 2010
bottle shared by the upland guys at DLD. Thanks for sharing! Had only a tiny sample. Fairly less sour than other upland lambics. Fruit character is also more subtle than other uplands. Decent floral aroma with some lime, fruit, light funk, and earth notes. Not bad, just not terribly exciting.

Clear gold tiny head. Aroma, kiwi, tart. Flavor, kiwi, some acidity, lime, sourness, good stuff.

Jblauvs (1340) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 13, 2010
cloudy golden brown pour thanks to Chris Lively! aroma is tart, some dry brett, lightly fruited with some sweet nectar fruit. Flavor is tart sweetness, not a whole lot of kiwi, not my favorite upland. Kiwi sounds good in theory but ends up being a little meek behind the sourness. Tasty, but not as good as I thought it would be
