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 blackberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Really tasy and really sour. Fruity and very slightly sweet. Real nice level of funky complexity. Great sour.

From notes. Sample at EBF. Pours reddish purple with a pink head. Aroma is tart blackberry, lemon. Flavor is very tart... Blackberry, lemon. Its good, but it might be taking the enamel off my teeth.

EBF 2017. Like all of Uplands lambics, this is hit-you-across-the-head sour, but it still worked well. The smell of fruit and sour notes was fantastic, and it tasted great as well (once I got past the sour bite), with fruit, a bit of barnyard funk, and some light biscuit flavor. Still, the sourness and the blackberries steal the show here, and I liked it.

From a bottle shared at Todds. Older batch, I think, by label. Light purple tart and blackberry but too acidic.

From notes. Enjoyed this at Dougs house for a small gathering on May 01 with Travis, ebone1988, and I think Charlie made an appearance as well. I opened this 750 mL bottle, and it was great. The pour is a deep purple with a fizzy light pink head. It looks pretty sexy. Its a little too fizzy, but other than that, it looks good. The aroma is all blackberry skins. Its tart as hell. There is a little funkiness, but the tart souring of it offers an excellent BHP. The sourness on the back end is really something that can be expected from Upland. The flavor is excellent. There is a ton of sour tart blackberry juice. The sourness is what really stands out on this one. Its great. The mouth feel is a little thick, but the fizzy carbonation makes this one not quite as good as it could be. The aftertaste is all huge sour blackberry with an excellent resounding sharp tartness that I love. This is definitely a sour beer.

Bottle share @ Hampton Inn pre-DLD 2016. Pour is deep purple/red with a very small pink head. Flavor and aroma of oak, cork, tobacco, earth, sour blackberries, and citric acid. Finish has a bit more sweet blackberries than the body.

_angst_ (4727) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Milsem. Pours very hazy bluish red with a small frothy bluish pinkish white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with crackers, lemon juice, blackberries, forest fruits, hay, dry soil, leather, apple cider vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is heavy sour and fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouth-puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is heavy sour with blackberries, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Nice blackberry character but a bit too sour.
