Received one of each of these delicious brews from TheodorHerzl. This will be my third of the six. Drank from my Stone India Pale Ale flute while watching The Fiesta Bowl (Texas vs. Ohio State).

Appearance- Pours a really hazy light peachish yellow with a half finger foamy white head that recedes very quickly. The cap is non-existent the collar is fairly thin and leaves almost no lacing.
Smell- Definite quite fruity in the nose with loads of berry and lactic sour. I'm not sure I'd directly guess it was Strawberry I smelled but I'd be close. Very light funk from the Brett in background but not overly so. The fruit and lactic sour tartness are fairly fresh and inviting. The oak is definitely present as well adding a nice woody vanilla aspect.
Taste- Starts very puckering and acrid with a slightly tart burst of berry. Like the nose I'm not sure I'd guess strawberry but it's definitely berry. Fairly lactic and very quenching the oak does a fairly good job of cutting the vinegar acidity a bit. A bit of light funkiness but nothing crazy, could honestly use a bit more. Finishes very dry with a light vanilla woodiness and slight fruitiness that lingers.
Mouthfeel- Fairly light with some fairly aggressive carbonation with the tiniest little prickly bubbles. Fairly dry and quenching.
Drinkability- Pretty damned good! The fruitiness is apparent and full of delicious berry goodness. These Upland Lambics may not be 100% true to form but they are very approachable and really very tasty. Really nice stuff. Thanks again Matt!

A - pours a very hazy golden yellow brown with minimal cream/yellow head. Minimal retention and nearly no lacing

S - smells blizzard. This won't sound good but its appealing: lots of sour funk and then a totally unidentifiable almost sweet/spoiled cream and the insides of those strawberry hard candies your grandma had.

T - absolutely fantastic. Tons of vingary tart sour flavors followed by decent strawberry sweetness.

M - medium bodied, relatively drinkable for how fantastically tart/sour it is. Decent carb

Bottle from bertram. Thank you, sir! Poured into a Lost Abbey teku...

A. Pours a bright, murky orange with touches of ruby and pink. Lots of bubbles and a finger of head that quickly settles to a half finger. Carb continues to rise up from the bottom of the glass and keeps the cap of head consistent through the session. Solid lacing.

S. Bright, ripe strawberry, grape skin, barnyard funk, hay, red wine vinegar.

T. Sweet and tart strawberry, white grapes, vinegar. Very juicy and equal parts sweet and tart. Bright and acidic, lots of pucker. Excellent.

M. Moderate carb with strong fruit presence. Vinous, tannic, tart, and fruity.

O. An excellent lambic and an impressive strawberry fruit beer. This fruit tends to fail in beer more than it succeeds, making this brew even more impressive. What I most like about this one is that it combines sweet, refreshing notes of strawberry with very tart, acidic, funky notes typical of the lambic style. Upland can chalk up another success in its lambic series.

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!
