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

Un nez de fraises putréfiées très spectaculaire avec des traits sauvages et acétiques éxhubérants. Les saveurs sont malheureusement dominés par l’acétique et j’ai pas mal mieux apprécié les premières que les dernières gorgées.

Bottle, sent by b3shine (thanks Beau!), and shared at RBAG 2014. Murky pink with a white head. Crushing lactic sourness washes over the palate, then ripe fresh strawberries settle in-- awesome!

The last of my Upland bottles. good riddance. Bright pink, reddish appearance. Nose is lactic acidity, sour candies and light lemon juice. Taste is harsh, acidic and incredibly strong. more peach / raspberry like than strawberry. At least the sweetness toward the end is redeeming.

750 mL bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer - many thanks! To long-stemmed tulip, it pours a rusty, pinkish-red with which a whitish-ringed head stood. Together: Tastes and smells of apple cider vinegar, raspberry ChapStick/lip balm, fruit leather, and humid sweat. Separately: Aromas of athlete’s foot, rhubarb. Kind of a V8/tomato juice component experienced at swallow, followed by gooseberries, agave syrup, puke, and crushed aspirin. Additionally, you should know, this is acidic as hell. Only the true acid heads (ha!) need apply. I was thinking I might not able to finish this, but it’s such a unique blend of flavors that I had to slurp it down. One helluva beer.

RBAG shared by Tony. Aroma is quite strawberry. Lactose sour, but strawberry is still strong in the flavor. Great!

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured from bottle to teku. Hazy orange hue with fizzy white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is lactic, strawberry, straw, acetic. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with tart sourness in the following and extending through the finish. Overall this is a great sour.

750 cork and cage tried to take my head off! After a wild display of overcarbonated fireworks that I adeptly contained to a drizzle running down both my hands into Andrew’s sink, it pours a dark apricot color with a, off white head. The aroma of dried strawberries fills the room. Going in close with my sniffer reveals more strawberry, acetic, some earthy tones. Flavor is quite tart and acetic, overripe strawberries, a touch of leather. A bit more strawberry sweetness in the finish relieves the palate from the pucker just enough. A bit of an ordeal, but this is tasty!
