3.7/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy ruby color with 1/2" of off white head. Decent head retention that eventually reduces to nothing, and no lacing.
Smell: Smells of sweet and tart raspberries, lemon tartness, and some funkiness/grassiness.
Taste: Mostly tart, and fewer sweet raspberries hit up front. Some funk and grassiness comes out, as well as some lemon tartness. I enjoyed this quite a bit, but when comparing to some exemplary beers of this style, it just doesn't have that pungent and intense flavor that make them so good. It's definitely sour enough, just lacking in some of the other areas of complexity. This beer is good, but not great.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with very high carbonation; nice feel. Overall, I enjoyed this quite a bit. Pretty good effort at brewing a lambic by Upland. I would definitely have again in the future.
Serving type: bottle
