3.68/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tulip. Bottled 3/7/11, Batch 53-09. Big thanks to Rempo for this.
2.5 A: Opaque cherry plum color. First pour gave me a lot of head. Second pour gave me a full glass with two and a half fingers of fizzy pink head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing. Some small floaties pushed around from the constant and intense stream of bubbles from the bottom of the glass.
3.5 S: This is less fruity in the nose than the other Uplands, though the raspberry is still easily discernable. A good hit of lactic tanginess, but not much in terms of sourness. Plenty of oak and vanilla to a lesser extent. Notes of hay and orchard funk. More sweet than the others with just a touch of tartness.
4.0 T: The taste is more attuned to what I expect. Full of tart raspberry that offers a good mix of sweet and sour. Again, lots of fruity lactic acid that gives off cherry and blueberry in addition to the raspberry. Some notes of acetic acid. Again hay and orchard funk. Moderately puckering overall. Not bad.
3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Carbonation is spritzy (which I like) and a good bit higher in volume than I'd prefer (which can be distracting at times). Puckering on finish.
3.5 D: Another solid beer in the lambic lineup. This has a pretty good taste and is among the more sour from the series. Smell is strangely more subdued than the taste suggests and the carbonation of this bottle is distractingly high.

4.08/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a cloudy raspberry jam color with nary a head though it leaves quite a few dots around the glass
Smell: Slightly sweet but primarily tart raspberry with a lemon and lactic character underlying
Taste: The sweet raspberry tones hit the tip of the tongue but as the liquid spreads across the tastebuds a lemony lactic sourness builds; after the swallow, it turns very acetic and burns on the way down the gullet
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation; very puckery
Overall: There is a lot to enjoy in this beer but beware of the extreme acidity on the finish
Thanks, fredmugs, for the opportunity
