look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle from the 8/2013 release, batch 8-10. Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass today, 3/11/2014.

App- Pours a hazy copper-brown body, less than one finger white head that dissipates quickly into a thin film, no collar. No lacing.

Smell- Blackberry tartness and a ton of lactic yogurt scent. And smells stomach-churningly sour, though not as sour as the Kiwi Lambic. Promising, but not overly so. Not a lot of funk.

Flavour- This is stomach-ulcer-level sour. 8, maybe 9/10 in terms of vinegar sourness here. No funk to be found, a nice blackberry tartness that doesn't come close to cutting the acid here.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, creamy and nicely carbonated feel on this. Very dry and sour, with an acidic & dry finish. My intestines are disintegrating despite the use of Tums immediately after drinking this beer.

Overall- It's good, but not great. And its only good if you like sourness to overpower the fruit and funk that should be present in spades in any lambic. This is the last Upland sour I'm going after, and I really can't recommend trying more than a few- Sour Reserve is the only one I'd recommend going for, really.
