4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a murky off white with little flakes of fruit floating around. Has a nice aroma and a little less funky than some of Upland's other sours. Crisp and refreshing. A favorite!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Bottle @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is murky yellow with a small white head and good lacing. Funky, lactic, guava, vanilla, stone fruit, and hibiscus aroma. Taste is salty, lemony, yogurt, lime, basil, super lactic and hugely sour. Light body with low carbonation. Way too acetic and kind-of a disappointment.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a milky yellow appearance with little head. Heavy passion fruit, guava, lemon, and other tropical fruits in the nose. The flavor was heavily acetic, extremely puckering and sour. Some funk but the beer so damn sour that it was hard to get other notes. The first beer I grabbed at the festival and possibly the first beer to run out, but it was a significant disappointment to me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Avery Sour Fest ’14. Cloudy light orange straw. Nose of stone fruit, guava, light funk. Taste is very sour from the persimmon. Extremely puckering, persimmon flavor is clear, but just too tart for much more than a taster.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample during the Secret Barrel Society tour on 05/24/2014: Hazy bright peach color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Fruity and floral aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of citrus, yeast and oak. The finish is mildly funky with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste from a 750ml bottle at brew3crew’s house-warming party. Hazy pale yellow color. No head. Couple bits of lace. Great bigger sour taste, very light sweet. Medium to bigger body. Very smooth, very light carbonation. Good dry finish. Not very familiar with persimmon fruit, but I love the pear type, white grape and oak aromas. Hint of spice. Fantastic fruit sour.
