COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lambics have been made in Belgium for over 500 years and we are honoring this tradition by brewing our own Indiana version. Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole cherries, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Upland Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

mansquito (6982) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2017
Haymaker, Manhattan tap: pours pinkish red with a white head. Aroma is cherry, basement cheesey funk. Taste is dry, yeasty cherry beer. Great mouthfeel and nice complexity. Quite nice.

superspak (6104) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2017
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 6/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/light copper color with a 1-2 finger foamy and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour/tart/tangy red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, and bread crust; with lighter notes of vanilla, toasted oak, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge sour/tart/tangy red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, and bread crust; with lighter notes of vanilla, toasted oak, leathery/musty funk, red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang; and light yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almond, lemon, plum, apricot, green apple, red grape, hay, straw, brown sugar, bread crust, light leather/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/sourness and tangy fruit balance; with zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness, fruit tang, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and grainy/acidic/tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.1%. Overall this is an amazing fruit lambic style! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, cherries, oak barrels, and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and insanely easy to drink; with the modestly lactic/tangy/tannic/drying finish. Absolutely wonderful stuff, cherry pie in a glass. Loads of jammy, nutty, pitty cherry/stone fruit character with great Brett/Lacto complexity; nice oak presence and malt balance. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
