4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Courtesy of BBB63
Bottle: The aroma is moderately peachy with a nice lemony tartness. It pours a cloudy orange with a minimal head that is just a fine ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts lightly yeasty and quickly turns to a moderate lemon tartness and light peach in the finish. Light bodied with lively and slightly spritzy mouthfeel. I?m not much of a peach fan unless they are tart. The peach flavor is more sweet in this beer.
Bottle (2013): The aroma consists of moderate peach, lemon, and a decent amount of funky notes. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. He flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet peach. The finish quickly turns to moderate-heavy sour peach, lemon, and light funk. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall...wow! This is insanely good and much better than the previous batches I’ve had.

bottle from stfun.
hazy orange to pale golden color with no head and very little carbonation.
smells good... under ripe peaches, pale dusty malt, smoky wood, some funky tartness, cinnamon, flowers, grass and minerals.
the flavor is a muted version of the aroma... slight peach flavor mixed with the same base of minerals, pale malt and a very slight tart funk.
medium bodied with a slick mouth feel since it is nearly dead flat. 7/4/6/3/14/3.4

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle courtesy of StFun – thanks Josh! Pours a slightly hazy orangish dark gold with almost zero head sans for a few large bubble. The nose is sour vinegar and light unripe peaches. The taste is light barnyard funk, vinegar, malt and faint sour peach in the finish. Medium fairly flat mouthfeel. Decent lambic. I think I’d have to vote Cherry as my favorite Upland Lambic, perhaps because you can pick put the fruitiness better. Still, nice and refreshing on a hot Phoenix summer evening. Thanks again Big J!

Bottle generously uncorked at hellbilly’s 5th of July tasting. Pours like peach juice with no discernable head. Undercarbonated, for sure. Smells and tastes of mild, underripe, peaches. Very subdued. Dries like champagne on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled on 10/25/08: Pours a hazy pale golden with a spotty lacing white head. Aroma of fresh fruity peaches and tart bretty funk. Body starts with good fullness and not much carbonation but with a light fruity peach flavor and good sweet tart balance before a drier finish. Seems a little dull, but should hopefully perk up over time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle
This was the first time I came across an Upland lambic that was not that good. Uncarbonated and not very tart it has very few redeeming aspects. More time is not to going to improve this in my opinion; you might are well drink it as soon as you can.
Aroma / Appearance - Flat with no head the carbonation was as minimal as it could be. The golden orange body sat lifelessly. Only slightly sour it is not as sweet as Lindeman’s or as intense as Cantlllon. The only positive is that it smells more like freshly squeezed peaches than canned fruit.
Flavor / Palate - Peach with a tartness more like a berliner weiss than a lambic it fades quickly. Not nearly as good as the other Upland lambics that I have tried this is hopefully just a dud. Maybe next year’s release will help them step it up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and fruit and light notes of spices. The flavor is acidic with notes of malt and lighter notes of brettanomyces, fruit - especially peaches and oranges, leading to a dry finish. The body is a bit thin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Cloudy deep blond color. Sour aroma, with lemon and tangerine, light malt, very light flowers too; interesting. It has a medium body, with light malt flavor, the sourness is not too strong, there is a fruity touch that reminds apples, along with the citrus fruits, and, mostly interesting, a delicate hazelnut touch. The final is delicate, lemony. Very good.
