750 ml bottled 10/10/2013. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark ruby red color with less than a finger of a pinkish head that dissipates almost instantly. Body is only lightly hazy with some moderate visible carbonation.

Smell: Sour cherry, funk, oak, lemon vinegar and a slight herbal quality.

Taste: Huge blast of acidic sourness upfront which carries right through to the finish. Beneath that are lots of cherries and oak as well as some earthy funk, leather, vanilla, some lactic acid and lemon.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a somewhat slick mouthfeel and medium assertive carbonation. Finishes very sour with a decent amount of residual sweetness.

Overall: One of the most sour beers I've ever had. Lots of sour cherry, oak and a little bit of funk as well. I'd still prefer a good Belgian kriek over this, but it's still worth a try.

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.
