look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Dark red, burgundy color, mostly opaque from particulate. Pinkish white head that is minimal and fades immediately to nothing. No lacing.

S - Funk and sour, barnyard with bright raspberry mingled with a more corrupted element, and more subtle woodiness.

T - Primarily sour, but with a welcome raspberry line throughout. A lactic element comes through, suggesting yogurt tang.

M - Very brisk carbonation that scrubs the tongue and limits the fatigue, but there is significant puckering sourness.

O - This, my second lambic from Upland, and it is a major step forward. The fruit is a core, key element, and is well-integrated into the experience. The sourness is strong and forward, but is not overwhelming or unpleasant. While the funkiness is at the outer edge of my preferences, and is perhaps the main element I feel is not entirely to my liking, it is nevertheless consistent with the style. Well done.

Note - revised to reduce score because the sourness produced a stomach ache later that night; still a good beer, but I feel the powerful sour may be a bit over the top based on my later experience.
