Bottle: Wow what a disappointment...I was wary of this because the last few Upland lambics I’ve opened have been dead-ass flat. Guess what, this is no different. Pour was a pale gold...the nose on this was very pleasant, notes of peach, hay, grass and some lactic sourness. Flavor pretty much follows along the same path and is decent but not mindblowing.

bottle at Ft Wayne locals tasting courtesy of jsquire - Pours slightly hazy orange-gold. It has a gentle aroma of peaches and some mild brett. The flavor is sweet and peachy with the wild yeast characteristics on the light side. Surprisingly it’s kind of watery and bland and it’s definitely under-carbonated. It’s okay, but I expected much more.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
25 oz bottle, shared by somebody at my house, Miver maybe? Poured a slightly hazy peach yellow body with no head at all. There’s a nice fruity peach nose with just a little bit of cellar funkiness. Pretty nice nose for a fruit beer, but not so amazing for a Lambic. The flavor is decently funky though, over-ripe peaches, very pitty with a very pulpy character to it. A good bit of yeastiness muddles things a bit though. The mouthfeel was a little lacking due to the undercarbonation, but I don’t think that it takes away that much. Needs a good bit more acidity to really envoke a Lambic feel. Overall, I thought that this was a pretty enjoyable fruit beer, but as far as a Lambic goes it falls quite short at this time.

Bottle shared by puzzl. Pale golden beer. Aroma is great. Fresh peach, apricot and a bit of soft pineappley character. Flavour is more straightforward, peach and a light hint of funkiness. A bit lactic and tart. It’s still pretty simple in the flavour, but I think it shows a lot of potential.

Bottle that was kindly passed on in a trade by the marvellous Miketd when we met in NYC in Nov 08, cheers me old mucker. Peach skins and yeast leap forth from the nose of this beer but there is a definate sour light acidic note as well. The beer poured a muddy orange colour there was no head and it lacked much in carbonation. Taste was just a little disappointing, I really expected something more zappy and sour than it was, as it was it came across as perfectly pleasant but seemed to strike me as the smoothie of the fruit lambic world and just a little too safe. There is plenty of peachy flavours, too much sweetness remains, a likeable beer but one that just needs to be more in your face to be taken really seriously. A7 A4 F6 P3 OV14 3.4

EithCubes (4704) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle, corked 750, this years Christmas slime. Nose is wild yeast, very lambic, with light orange and peach and much stronger indeterminate tang. Carrot-orange pour with no head. Taste is bland, little peach if any, though a smidgen of tangerine, traditional lambic mushiness, but on the whole, immediately disappointing. Alcohol masterfully hidden, not terribly sour (actually rather smooth), also very flat - this is an unfinished beer.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2008
Hazy yellow with tiny white short lasting head. Sourish aroma with notes of peach and wood. Sourish flavour with barnyard, peach and brett notes. Sourish finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle shared by puzzl. Pours a hazy honey color with a wispy fading white head. The aroma is pretty nice- the funk is developed with some tartness, aceto, brettanomyces, leather and only a very subdued damp oak note. The peach is in the background playing only a small role. The body is not carbonated enough yet, and the flavor does not have enough funk-a touch of sharp wild fermentation. Mild peach tartness and sweetness without being too sweet, but it has not developed enough funk either. Needs some time for the yeast to act up.

Thanks to Puzzl for sharing. Pours a mostly clear in the first pours- mine turned out a slight haze- and Andys last pour looked like puke. haha. No head due to a very slight carbonation that I think will build with time in aging. I got a lot of really fresh peach aroma, peach puree, chutney, and even some fresh crazy peach mango salsa stuff my mom buys, with a nice acidity in the nose. Ok fresh peach flavor, a bit sweet still, body is also big and not ready yet, some doughy yeastiness, almost a bit gritty, with some ok good acidity but still on the slight side. This might be really good in another year or 2. Best to sit on and age. Too young right now.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Bottled from Sprinkle. Nice aroma, a clean tart, maple syrup and fruit and peach. Good tartness. The flavor is quite disappointing after the aroma, almost no sour, and a very thin body. Almost no carbonation. If you take huge sips you get some buttery funk, perhaps, but thats about it. A touch of peach in the flavor. This one is disappointing. Needs to sour up a LOT more, and needs more carbonation.
