Upland keep los it on their fruit sours. All seem so well balanced from fruit to oak to musty barnyard characters. This one had great strawberry aroma that added to their dimension from the funky tart brews. a++

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steve Hackley on September 25. Thanks Steve! This was poured from a 750 mL bottle. The pour is a darker orangey pink color with a thin off-white head and no lace at all as it dissipates. I’ve noticed that strawberries aren’t very dominant when it comes to flavoring sours, and this is just another example. There is a light strawberry in it, but the bright sour lemon and funky oak really take the fruit away. It’s a good sour aroma, but the strawberry just kind of takes a back seat. The flavor is a bit better. There seems to be a little more fruit present and riding the sour from start to finish. There is a good oakiness that carries through the length as well. I like the funk and the sharp strawberries. The mouth feel is excellent. There is a nice sharp carbonation and a lingeringly sour strawberry finish. It is dry, tart, and crisp. Just lingers for days. Great sour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged 2 years. Cloudy light orange with a very light pink hue behind it. Funky earthy strawberry twang that’s huge and tart and funky and lactic. Very tart flavor with a puckering effect with strawberry sweetness behind it. Tart and earthy sweet and full of berry. Real big tartness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 bottle. Pours out a murky red shade with no head. The aroma has vinegar, strawberry and that kind of musty old closet feel to it. Taste is very sour and there is more carbonation than most Belgian lambics. I like the fruit integration but don’t think the base beer truly stands up.
