UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 Bottle at BeerAdvocate tasting (yeah, I do BA stuff too, Iím a man of the people). Cloudy orange-yellow color. Aroma of peach and funk. By funk I mean horse blanket, straw from a pig sty floor, lamb shearer, and cow hairbrush. Appetizing, no? Flavor is sweet and sour peaches, some barnyard - any of the animal-related apparatuses I listed, you pick. Falls a little flat at the end with a watery finish. Update: Had this again thanks to aasher on BA and got a much better impression. Great peach aroma, and the palate wasnít quite as weak as the first time. First time was a 7/3/7/2/13, second time was a 8/3/7/3/14. Sticking with a 7/3/7/3/14 overall here.

75cl bottle courtesy of YGTBSM. Gold with a small head. Clean tart aroma with light peaches. Lightly sour, peachy, and finishes dry. Light bodied with low carbonation. Really light flavor and palate impact overall, though what is there is not at all bad stuff.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Bottle shared by bobby91w at the presex gathering. Thanks bro. One of the better of this most recent batch of upland fruit lambics I have had so far. Peach skins, oak, tartness. Itís still far from bering there, but itís well on its way.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2009
750mL bottle shared by ATLbeerDog. This thing looks a good bit like an unfiltered grapefruit juice - milky, completely flat and fluorescent golden orange with hints of pink in there. The aroma was a nice mix of sweet peaches and tart fruit notes. There is a hint of funk though itís pretty subtle and certainly not overpowering. The taste is even sweeter than the aroma and is dominated by the sweet peaches. It tastes like peach juice with the faintest hint of funk in the background. The mouthfeel is very slick with no carbonation to speak of. This is certainly a drinkable lambic, mainly because there is almost no funk in there yet. I have a feeling this one will be much more representative of the style in a year or two when the funk starts to come out. Pretty fruity in itís current state.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a murky orange with a thin white pathetic lacing. Lightly woody sour peach and a tart aromatic character. Very low acidity and carbonation. Lemon peach but very thin and weak, kinda like vitamin water. A poor lambik example.

Aroma was about the nicest thing this beer had to offer. The beer itself had a weak light sour taste with a large amount of the flavors coming from the peaches and nothing else. I even have doubts that this beer will get much better even after a few years in the cellar.

750ml bottle. Lighter musty, rotting fruit peel funk initially on the nose. Peach, pear, maybe a touch of pineapple. Basement, sock and a bit of barnyard... not a whole lot though. Iíd say more fruity than funky aroma... but not by much. Pours a flat, still bright copper/gold. No head and no appearance of carbonation. Actually looks kinda nice in the glass. Flavor falls relatively flat so to speak. Just a bit of fruit... a bit of funk. A slight stinging acidity on the back of the tongue and down the throat. Some tart peach skin. Not overly sour but plenty of lacto creaminess. Very little barrel presence. Donít get me wrong... very refreshing. I could drink a shitload of this on a hot summer day, but really missing the mark as a fruit lambic. Medium bodied. Plenty of lacto on the tongue. A bit (but not a lot) of carbonation with a slightly acidic finish. Could stand more acidity, more barrel and less fruit presence as a fruit lambic. Still tasty though. Thanks Marc!

750ml bottle thanks to tjthresh. When I removed the cap the cork was bubbling, I wonder what it would look like in a couple years, Iím guessing black and moldy like a Cantillon. The first whiff I took from the bottle got me excited for the funk. It smells like a nice fruity lambic, a little funk but not distinct peachiness. The color is hazy golden orange and it is completely flat which is a let down. There is hardly any sourness until the end and the flavor is kind of weak in my opinion resembling watered-down juice. Sadly this is probably my least favorite of the Upland lambics Iíve had. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-12-2009 02:58:50
