4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thnx to geoffrey .
Pours rather dark pink .
Small , fast fading-to-nothing white head .
Smell is pure raspberry , sour , with a herbal aspect .
High carbo . Taste is very sour , raspberrys-to-the-maximum , bit sweetness even . Feels very natural fruity . Very sharp sour ending . Just like all other Uplands in the tasting ( 5 bottles ) this was very extreme, and probably not balanced at all - if you compare with the ’real’ lambics , yet I do love this one .
Nice , but very simple ( sour bacteria added rather than a complex mixture of different Brettanomyces - species ) .

Bottle. Pours a hazy deep raspberry color, no head. Aroma is seedy raspberry, lemon juice, sour apricot. Taste is super acetic raspberry, sour cherry, wine grape, lemon juice. Out of control puckery. Just okay.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks, Chris. Lovely fuchsia, indigo, red-ish body, fully opaque with a light lavender head that fizzles instantly into thin air. Aroma of tart & sharp raspberry skin, lemon, a hint of cinnamon-y spice, yogurty lactic sourness, & tons of mixed berry flesh all around the edges. The taste is sour... Quite sour. Even more sour than the aroma would suggest. Puckering raspberry, balsamic vinegar, lemon Warhead candies, acetic lacto yeast, & just a touch of some vaguely woodsy musk in the finish; perhaps a little oaky. Dry fruit skin aftertaste, lingering raspberry & lemon. I’m a sucker for super sour shit & this really hit the spot.

Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy red hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is lactic, oak. Peppercorn, straw. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a great sourness and finishing spicy. Overall this is great!

Bottle. Semi hazy red pour, with a thin pinkish head. Huge fresh seedy raspberry, very sour, and a healthy dose of funk. Nice and dry. Very intense beer, feels like it’s removing enamel from my teeth.

Taster from a bottle at Upland Sourfest. Totally hazy red / pink color. Awesome color. Thin ring of off-white head. Awesome big sour taste. Light spicy sour raspberry twang in the finish. Big awesome raspberry sour taste, very cool. Awesome razz-sour. Bigger body. Kind of slick. So sour, it makes me sweat. So fruity too, though. Fascinating stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Upland, 5/16/14, Bottled 10/9/13
Aroma: The nose is full of raspberry and yeasty funk
Appearance: It pours a dark red color with a fizzy, quickly dissipating beige head
Flavor: The flavor is rather tart and funky, quite sour, with only a minimal sweetnes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, and a dry, mouth puckering finish
This is a really nice raspberry lambic. It doesn’t get even close to being sweet, just a really enjoyable, well-made lambic. Nicely done here.
