Capped and corked old batch. Thank you for giving me this bottle Chad! Sampled alongside the other seven fruit lambics.

A: Not a gusher (like most of the other flavors)! Pours a murky deep amber color with a short lived reddish hued head.
S: A very interesting nose with hints of blueberry fruit, blueberry jam or pie filling, fermented ripened fruits. No citrus in this one.
T: Almost woody, no acid (except maybe a twinge in the finish). A touch of citrus up front followed by a bit of mild blueberry. Hard to pick out the fruit.
M: Faintly tart, very mellow, almost muted flavors. Medium body, lower carbonation than the other flavors.
O: Very mellow. Tastes its age. Blueberry is a tough flavor to begin with though. Thanks again cpferris!

Pours a beautiful reddish blue. Blueberry sours always have the most unique appearance. Nice head but unlike most Uplands this one doesn't gush.

Smells like a shitload of mouth numbing, medicinal brett and some fruity sourness that is possibly but not necessarily recognizable as blueberry. Fairly appealing actually.

Disappointing flavor...the initial burst of sour brett and mild fruitiness is pretty standard Upland, but it doesn't follow through with as much fruit as I'd like and the aftertaste is kindof off--super bretty in a kind of medicinal vitamin like way. Pretty good while in the mouth, but needs more fruit flavor and could do without the odd finish.

Nice well carbonated mouthfeel.

I like this beer, but expected better. This is the least good of the Upland lambics, and probably the least fruity. Especially disappointing since blueberry is my favorite fruit! Still a good beer but it ain't no blabaer.

6.9/10

This one was shared during the big Upland sour tasting amongst a large group of BAs! Served from bottle into a Boulevard tulip. Poured a purplish red with a half finger pink head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, blueberries, funk, and sour. The flavor was of sweet malt, blueberries, funk, tart, and sour. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This was my second favorite from this tasting which included all of the Upland fruit lambics and Sour Reserve Batch 1 (which took #1). We figured no one had brought Blåbær so this would make a decent substitute. We were right on that aspect. While not as funky like most Cantillons, this one definitely carried a similar flavor profile. With this one being MUCH easier to obtain I would not think twice about pick as many of these up as possible based on my two experiences with this brew. A definite must try for anyone who calls themselves a sour fan. If you haven’t tried it before, you need to do so…
