3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 57/151. Pours a clear golden orange color with a slight white head. Tart cherry, orange, pineapple notes in the nose. Light mouthfeel with very little carb. Subtle flavors, some fruit notes up front followed by florals. Ends with a lingering brett like note.
A bit of a disappointment but then again I hold Upright to such a high standard that it may be a little unfair.

From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours clear golden with a thin white head that completely disappears quickly. The nose is light wheat malt with a nice sour lemon note, simple but nice. The flavor is all about the lactic sourness with the same lemon and very light wheat from the nose. The body is light with average carbonation and a long sour finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: 33/151. Semi-clear, golden body with a foamy, eggshell cap topping it off, quickly receding to a chunky collar. Aroma comprised of faint musty blanket, overripe peach skins, a bit of soured wheat, light oaky tannins, some moderate lactic notes & a good amount of tart stone fruits finishing things off. You get a big woody & oaky flavor right out of the gate, but itís largely mellow & not astringent or harsh at all. Lots of lactic tartness, grainy & soured wheat, mineral notes, lemon flesh, stone fruits, & a bit of barnyard, cottony must towards the finish with a lingering bit of wild bacteria sourness, dryness, & funk. Crisp, refreshing, & dry. Overall, this makes for a very unique "Berliner". Extremely crushable, easy drinking, & flavorful. Too bad my homebrews have higher bottle counts.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light citrus with a touch of fruit and must. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. There is a hint of fruit in the middle. The finish light lemon, funk, and a touch of must. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, super refreshing and drinkable. Too bad Iíll never see it again.

On tap at the Drake Eatery, Victoria. Light amber, white head. Nose is blue cheese, tropical fruit. Flavour is that great sharp fruity hop sensation followed by dryness you get in the style. Peachy. Had it with a Taiwanese exchange student and it was the only one of the night they liked.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Headless with a cloudy deep orange body. Nose is tart and highly metallic ; smells like light machine oil on a burnt electrical engine on a miniature race track. Watery tart fruit mixed with lemon ice tea. Interesting. On draught at the Moon Under Water.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 3.7% ABV
Cloudy golden color with compact head. The aroma is creamy, biscuity, lightly sour, vaguely vinous and a bit footy; very interesting. Light and dry body; mild flavor, but with moderate lactic acid, fresh, with a light fruity note. Almost no bitterness.

On tap at PIB, pours cloudy faded yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out some toasted oak, citrus and wheat. Flavour is a tad woody, with some gin notes, citrus and wheat. Pretty dry and light on the tartness for the style. I prefer the non-BA Lactovasilius, but this is still nice.

Sharply sour and buttery nose with a bit of ripe cheese. Taste is moderately sour, and lightly sweet with lots of lemon juice and honeysuckle. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Trransparent gold, puffy white head that falls off quick. Sticky nose of vanilla, light lemon, not enough grain or lactic balance though light scents of milky grain with warmth. Some pedio kicks up with stirs. Light flavor, slight mineral, milky dough front and mid, lemon throughout, more grain and gravel in finish with toast lasting long. Nose needs more balance, softest Berliner flavor Iíve ever tried.
