Golden yellow, no head, no lacing. Aroma is quite nice with lots of peaches, light sourness, good sweetness. Flavour still has lots of peaches but is a little flat and lifeless, some light tartness, candish. Sweet but a bit watery in the mouth, thin body, light carb. Finished with some sweetness, more peaches.

After the success of their other lambics, this was a step backwards. Quite watery. I do like the peach flavour in this though.

750ml bottle purchased at the brewery in Bloomington, Indiana.
Opened March 2009.
Vintage 2008.

Muddy orange juice look with full off-white head. nose was nice to me...giving me a nice, sour, vivid peach. The flavors were lightly soured and funky with loads of peach. Note overly acidic yet it remained nice and clean with vivid peach notes abound.

In an effort to knock out the rest of my backlog, my ratings will be fairly generic and sparse. If the beer had anything special to offer, it will be noted following this disclaimer. The number ratings above are accurate based on my tasting notes. Following the elimination of my backlog, all beers will be entered in real time and will be more useful. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This brew made me sad. I was expecting much much more. It was drinkable and light, just didnt have the kick that I wanted. Not that great of a lambic.

Bottle and shared with Jeff and Kevin at our little post MiBGF Saturday Night tasting:

Hazy golden hue with a small frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma is sour acidic peaches and light brett vapours along with some oak, grassy and dirty esters. The taste is acidic and fruity for sure, the peach flavor bounces between tart and sweet which was interesting, there are some pale malt and herbal qualities as well. The mouth feel is refreshing but a tad watery and short. This is getting better with age but is still over a year away from its peak.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Pours amber with some spritzy carbonation floating around. Smells of peaches with some tartness and funkiness. Overall, a decent flavor with the peaches not overwhelming the wheaty, funky background.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 Courtesy of BBB63 Bottle: The aroma is moderately peachy with a nice lemony tartness. It pours a cloudy orange with a minimal head that is just a fine ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts lightly yeasty and quickly turns to a moderate lemon tartness and light peach in the finish. Light bodied with lively and slightly spritzy mouthfeel. I?m not much of a peach fan unless they are tart. The peach flavor is more sweet in this beer. Bottle (2013): The aroma consists of moderate peach, lemon, and a decent amount of funky notes. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. He flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet peach. The finish quickly turns to moderate-heavy sour peach, lemon, and light funk. Its light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall...wow! This is insanely good and much better than the previous batches Ive had.

bottle from stfun. hazy orange to pale golden color with no head and very little carbonation. smells good... under ripe peaches, pale dusty malt, smoky wood, some funky tartness, cinnamon, flowers, grass and minerals. the flavor is a muted version of the aroma... slight peach flavor mixed with the same base of minerals, pale malt and a very slight tart funk. medium bodied with a slick mouth feel since it is nearly dead flat. 7/4/6/3/14/3.4

750ml bottle courtesy of StFun thanks Josh! Pours a slightly hazy orangish dark gold with almost zero head sans for a few large bubble. The nose is sour vinegar and light unripe peaches. The taste is light barnyard funk, vinegar, malt and faint sour peach in the finish. Medium fairly flat mouthfeel. Decent lambic. I think Id have to vote Cherry as my favorite Upland Lambic, perhaps because you can pick put the fruitiness better. Still, nice and refreshing on a hot Phoenix summer evening. Thanks again Big J!
