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

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle: Dark indigo & purple opaque body with a lavender head that fizzes out in seconds to absolutely nothing. Aroma of light blueberry, lemon, light oak, some acetic & lactic sourness, & light must. Flavor heavy with super sour lemon & berry acidic tartness, vinegar, strong yogurt, lacto bacteria, drying wood, cherry skin, & a dry, acidic finish. Burns a little going down, super acidic... But very tasty.

750 ml bottle shared by Willrunforbeer, much thanks! Real nice purple color without any head. Aroma is funky lambic yeast, oak, tart Berry and a shot ton of lactic sourness.

The flavor starts with a slap of lactic acid, followed by residual sugars in the center then it gets and light moldy cheese note. Aggressively sour pucker after the sip. This is going to give me a harsh heartburn. I guess if you like the style, it would be something you want to try but I didnt get much blueberry in the flavor.

Best fruit sour this brewery made. Smashing great blueberry nose aroma flavor all way through to crisp dry light carbonation and finish. Perfect lambic funk and cheese and Brett. Great oaky maple character from cellaring. Get this when ever you can

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Side by side tasting of the Upland Sour Reserve, Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry and Kiwi Lambic. Sour Reserve Blend 5: soft sour body, buttery, a tad floral as well 4.1/5 Kiwi: no real kiwi characteristics, extremely sour and lactic 2.9/5 Raspberry: one of the freshest raspberry aromas around. Afterwards all is sour and lactic 3.4/5 Strawberry: aroma is q bit chemical strawberry, the body and taste makes one remind of the Hanssens Oudbeitje, let it be a lot more sour 3.2/5 Blueberry: the nicest and tartest of the "Lambic" series we sampled 3.5/5 These beers are not lambics and should not be called as such. It is obvious that the sour character in this beer comes from lactic fermentation rather than a complex process of different families of bacteria and yeast. The aftertaste of all of the sampled "lambic" serie have a repelling sour finish...

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Reddish-purple pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong tart blueberry notes and some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of juicy and tart blueberry character as well as some vinegar and strong tartness. There is also a hint of biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DuffMan (9645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle, shared at Thanksgiving dinner with guests. Another gem from b3shine-- thanks Beau! Lovely violet hue, murky, with a lively crown of fine bubbles. Big perfumey blueberry and lactic sourness combine to make a quenching, salivary gland-pumping, treat. Yeasty and woody undertones, sour and dry. Another fantastic American lambic from Upland.
