Finally get to try this thanks to Tom P for sharing.
Light fizzy purple head, dark murky sediment maroon color
Nose light light sour tart fruit, big blackberry, little seed and skin, little tart cherry like too
Taste light tart fruit, big blackberry and juicy blackberry like pure blackberry, little stem tannin, tart acidic bite, nice sour and blackberry, not super funky.
Mouth med to a little lighter bod, nice carb, tart little flemmy and acidic.

Upland Blackberry Lambic from a bomber (thanks BShine) at the 2014 RBWG in Asheville.
Sour funky blueberry/blackberry.
Vinegar (which I can't abide) but mostly gone in the taste.
Too wild and unbalanced. Uses Belgian yeast but doesn't match typical Belgian quality.

The beer comes in a bright reddish pink.
The aroma is hugely lactic and sour of berries, lemon juice. A bit of funk.
The flavor at first is almost undrinkable. Literally like biting into a lemon or an under ripe berry. Imagine that initial flavor of a berry Warhead candy. Including me, other people’s faces twisted from the tartness. Moving on, there’s a tinge of sweetness and the berry flavors come out more. Bright effervescent mouthfeel.
Great flavors, but the tartness is overpowering.

Really lovely pink/magenta color with lots of white head/bubbles. The smell jumped out of the bottle immediately. It was a yogurt/funk mix that was pretty overpowering. The taste was described as sour patch kid meets shock tart. Not a lactic sour like the nose led you to believe. It is an intense puckering sour that isn't for folks who get indigestion. The mouthfeel was very effervescent and quite nice. Overall, I want more fruit flavor for the price point and the hunt. The extreme tartness mellowed a bit as the day went on, but it just wasn't a top notch sour for me.
