Very aggressively sour like most/all Upland lambic-style beers. The color is distinctly cherry, which is quite impressive. Looks like well carbed cherry juice. The smell is mostly tart but not overtly yogurty or too strong. I do get the cherry flavor despite the aggressive tartness from this beer. The flavor is actually quite good for how overtly tart this beer is. Unfortunately, 2 ounces was enough to give me that stomach burn feeling. I just don't understand why these Uplands have to be so aggressive in the sour/tartness. This is the second best I've had after Strawberry.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 10/2010.

Appearance: Upland Cherry pours a hazy orange color with ruby highlights. Upon pouring, a wispy white head forms, which has little retention and no lacing. Not the most attractive lambic I have seen by any stretch.

Smell: Smells primarily of lacto sourness and tart lemons, with slightly vegetal notes as well, and a hint of tart cherries.

Taste: Puckering lemon tartness and lacto notes. Again, slightly vegetal with perhaps a bit of cherry. Quite sour, but not all that complex.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with fairly low carbonation. A pretty good feel overall. Perhaps could use a little more carbonation. Overall, a nice lambic. Definitely a high level of lacto sourness in this beer with the age. It could be more complex, as for me the cherries did not add anything to the beer other than more tartness. And the vegetal notes did not do it any favors either.
