COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber's Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole strawberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Nice reddish dirt colored pour. Small amount of white bubbles. No lacing. Aroma is very sour smelling. Some fruit mixed in with acetone and acetic badness. Taste is horribly sour. Can’t really get much more sour than this. Not much to taste through it all.

75cl, Batch 3.10 (bottled Nov. 12th 2013), no mention of ABV, exclusive American brew, with strawberries, thx alot to Vincent for bringing this over!, complex sour fruit brew, sour/fruity and slightly spicy/sweet, yet not balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, nice brew, yet very expensive!

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to a chill bro for sharing. Pours a hazy pinkish orange appearance with a thin head. The aroma is overwhelming full of strawberries and other red berries. Pretty high sourness. Dry, low sweetness. A little bit of funk and lactic notes. Not sure I could drink a lot of this but it is fun in small amounts.

gEUS (1242) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Side by side tasting of the Upland Sour Reserve, Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry and Kiwi Lambic. Sour Reserve Blend 5: soft sour body, buttery, a tad floral as well 4.1/5 Kiwi: no real kiwi characteristics, extremely sour and lactic 2.9/5 Raspberry: one of the freshest raspberry aromas around. Afterwards all is sour and lactic 3.4/5 Strawberry: aroma is q bit chemical strawberry, the body and taste makes one remind of the Hanssens Oudbeitje, let it be a lot more sour 3.2/5 Blueberry: the nicest and tartest of the "Lambic" series we sampled 3.5/5 These beers are not lambics and should not be called as such. It is obvious that the sour character in this beer comes from lactic fermentation rather than a complex process of different families of bacteria and yeast. The aftertaste of all of the sampled "lambic" serie have a repelling sour finish...

Thnx to Geoffrey Pours murky amber . No head . Smell is funky , sour, strawberry . Taste is dry sour , strawberry in a vegetable way ( not sweet - think of Oudbeitje but way more sour ) . sour back , very full , very dry . Sharp in its sourness . Nice , but very simple ( sour bacteria added rather than a complex mixture of different Brettanomyces - species ) .

Corked @ caged bottle from a trade a while back. Had pretty low expectations of this but... Hazy blood orange pour with some white lacings. Loads of fresh strawberries, some funk, light acidity and a light sweet finish. Very good and not as artificial as other strawberry beers i’ve had...
