4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled on 12/6/10
Taste on 12/26/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle shared at a tasting. Pours pale orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sour kiwi (skin more than flesh) fruit leather with light malt and a pleasant white wine vinegar aroma. The flavor is the same, more kiwi skin than flesh, light malt, sour lemon and vinegar, and an added touch of vanilla. The body is medium and sticky tannic with lively carbonation and a long sour kiwi skin and light vanilla finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Pale straw with no head. Good lord this was vile...paint thinner, vinegar, mouth puckering acidity as it strips the enamel off your teeth, some kiwi skins and juice through the rest of the noise. Actually tasted much better then it smelt, although a few ounces was more then enough. This is the perfect example of how everyone has different tastes...around the table some people poured this out and some people it was good - very good.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color lambic with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of paint thinner is pretty intense with quite a bit of acidic notes and sour notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by paint thinner notes with intense sour notes and quite a bit of acidic notes. Kiwi is quite hard to distinguish. Body is light with good carbonation. The paint thinner notes were a big turn-off for me.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sunset-orange with soft haze. Large white bubbles fizzle away quickly. Aroma is intensely funky -- crisp barnyard, hay, unripe pear, sweet kiwi, a splash of white vinegar. More kiwi appears in the flavor, blending with an almost cheesy funk and apple vinegar. Tartness is moderate and lingers for a good long while. The sour critters get in the way of the fruit a bit, and the cheesiness is somewhat distracting. Tasty enough to have a small glass, but not much more.

Bottle@Sad Fish tasting aka Haarlemmestraat tasting aka Elite tasting aka did Dean do something (stupid) today aka Benzais’ endless triangle travel aka Chris’ Birthday tasting:
Bottle: Thanks Chris:
Small white head. Hazy yellow colored beer.
Aromas of diapers filled with baby poo, acidic vinegar and sour notes.
Flavour is acidic vinegar, burning, sour, disgusting and unbalanced!
Aftertaste is sour, tart, funky, malt, wood and of course vinegar and a trace of the burn...
Medium carbo, tart sour vinegar acid burning unbalanced body, nasty!
Anybody saying this is a good Lambic should taste the original Belgian stuff and then come back and say it again, crazy!
Not a good introduction to Upland, won’t be tasting anything else from them soon or even ever again! Sorry Chris, thanks for sharing but this is just bad!

Bottle shared @ tasting. Very hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smells weird, very sour, like the seeds from a kiwi. Tastes like that as well. Incredible sourness, my god, very very acidic. Sour fruits are there but you need a strong stomach to drink more than a sip of this. Dear Lord this is sour. Too much for me.
