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

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of strawberry, cream, funk and sourness. Sour strawberry flavor with some creaminess and funk before that signature Upland super sour finish.

July 12, 2016. Sample, courtesy of linusb, thanks!
Cloudy golden with pinkish notes, minimal head. Aroma is sour, funky and fruity with ripe strawberries, peach pulp, apricot skin, lemon juice, hints of green apple, acetic acid, some oak, herbal notes and hints of vanilla. Taste is very sour, fruity with a minimal sweetness. Mouth puckering sour finish with acetic acid, lemon juice, hints of green apple, very light fruity sweetness with ripe strawberries, apricot and peach, hints of vanilla. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation.
Good, nice incorporation of the strawberries but too sour.

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++

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. Iíve noticed that strawberries arenít 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. Itís 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.
