Brutally sour. One dimensional. Much better options out there.

Scored in a trade for a Parabola. Now I'm regretting that decision.

A - Pours a really pretty orange. The head has zero retention so once it settles down it looks like a glass of juice. Very thick and hazy.

S - Sour, funky yeast. Lots of citrus peels but doesn't really resemble kiwi. Just smells very tart.

T - Acid BOMB. No kiwi present at all. This doesn't even taste like a fruited beer. Pure lacto and sour. Resembles a warhead. Very one dimensional and dumb.

F - Burn, lots of acid burn in the mouth and just sour. I actually had heartburn an hour after drinking this.

O - One dimensional, sensationalized beer that is getting way too much hype.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color lambic with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of paint thinner is pretty intense with quite a bit of acidic notes and sour notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by paint thinner notes with intense sour notes and quite a bit of acidic notes. Kiwi is quite hard to distinguish. Body is light with good carbonation. The paint thinner notes were a big turn-off for me.

This was by far the sourest Upland I've had to date. Not sure I was getting much kiwi in the taste or smell, but it was enjoyable for someone that likes enamel stripping sourness.

I cannot believe the high marks this is getting. It starts out ok with a nice, hazy gold/tangerine color. Lacto heavy citrus nose. The first sip is where everything goes wrong. Extreme puckering and enamel erasing blast immediately. Lacto overpowered everything in this. Couldnt finish it. Complete mess. I love upland, but this falls flat on its face.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a wisp of a head; little retention or lacing

Smell: Lemon, kiwi and lactic sour tones

Taste: Lemon and kiwi tones, up front, with increasing lactic sourness through the middle; both sweet and sour tones intermingle through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with low carbonation

Overall: Another nice fruited lambic from Upland; not as sour as some of the others
