COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previously labeled Strawberry Lambic). Made with fresh whole strawberries from Heartland Family Farms in Spencer, IN, Strawberry is a fruited sour ale that showcases distinct fruit characteristics with a mildly tart base sour blonde ale. Light reddish hues highlight the color, with a bubbly pinkish foam. Aromas of fresh field strawberries and pleasant tartness, plus lactic tanginess and strawberry fruit flavors create a refreshing and experiential taste. Finish is very dry, with lingering strawberry flavor. (Previous 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 strawberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

Upland keep los it on their fruit sours. All seem so well balanced from fruit to oak to musty barnyard characters. This one had great strawberry aroma that added to their dimension from the funky tart brews. a++

Poured a hazy golden red color with a medium sized, pinkish white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, wood, light vanilla, and strawberries. Taste was wild yeast, sour, light vanilla, wood, and a pleasant berry finish. Thanks for sharing John!

Gushed a little. Poured a cloudy pink/golden color with a very light pink foam. The aroma was big wild yeast, strawberries, and some light oak. Flavors were sour/funky yeast, strawberries, green apples, and oak. A most excellant lambic. Huge thanks to pnista for hooking me up with this!
