Most recent release, much less acidic, very nice, would be better with a little more fruit

750ml bottle from the spring 2015 lottery, poured into a Gandhi Bot tulip.

A: Clear, deep ruby body under a half inch of fine pink froth. Decent retention and light lace. Gorgeous.

S: Sharp lactic sourness dominates, with some lemon, blackberry, and oak in the background. Straightforward and intense, but not as balanced as it could be.

T: Opens with pure, almost overwhelming sourness - tasty but rather simplistic. The finish, though, combines a delightful berry richness with just a touch of oaky vanilla. Long, tart aftertaste. Not well integrated, but the finish is well worth the price of admission.

M: Light, lively carbonation alongside tongue-curling acidity. Intense.

O: Really enjoyable, although it was almost sad to think how amazing this would have been if the delicious complexity of the finish were the dominant flavor instead of an afterthought.

Cheers!

This might be the tartest (most acidic) beer I've ever had. Typical Upland sour. My wife and I split the bottle. As we got to the bottom of the bottle it felt like our mouths were blistering.

Was crazy excited after the pour, which was beautiful, thinking the color suggested some serious fruit flavors, but they're just not forward enough. It's a very good lambic with a hint of blackberry.
