4.33/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A corked and caged 750 mL bottle from fvernon; thank you very much! Hand written bottling info indicates a batch number of 42-90 and a bottled on date of 10/12/2010. Split with the girl into a DFH signature glass and a Deschutes Tulip...

Upon pulling out the cork, there was perhaps a second of peace before the bubbly head started gushing forth. I was prepared that this one may be a gusher, however, and opened it over the sink to minimize the potential frustration. As soon as it settled to a reasonable pace, I tried pouring into the first tulip with great success.

The body was a hazy (to the point of opaque) peach/apricot color with some golden straw hues. Tiny pieces of peach comprised a sediment that floated and swirled around the glass. In one of the pours, it got stuck in the head and clung like lacing to the glass. The head was massive, about two and a half inches, and appeared an off-white to faint peach color itself. It didn't stick around for long though, and minimal lacing was left behind.

It smells of tart peach, some fresh peach juice, a bit of apricot, and a slurry of other, indistinguishable fruit esters. Some faint grasses also appear behind the sour nose. The taste is quite similar, beginning with fresh peach and apricot, moving into some straw and other citrus, and finishing with the tart kick of the peach. Really well done in my opinion, and very delicious.

Mouth is sour, but not painfully so. It finishes a touch dry, leaving you wanting another drink. I'm very happy to report that none of the fruit flavors appear to come from artificial sugars; if it's there, it's masked very well, as there isn't that lingering candy sensation after taking a drink.

Overall, a very well done lambic that I'll need to acquire more of. It certainly makes me want to try Upland's other flavors.

4.18/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

The beer pours a hazy, vibrant light orange topped by a thin white head and big flocks of white sediment stirring around the bottom. The nose is vaguely funky, with light tart peach notes, a hint if puke, and some grain. It's a tart and grainy sour with fantastic peach flavor, some lemon & Granny Smith apple, a great malt backbone, and subtle fruitiness that lingers in the finish. For an upland, this is a very approachable, medium bodied, reasonably carbonated, and drinkable sour (not super acidic) that amplifies a subtle peach characteristic and maintains a great grain and yeast presence alongside. I'd highly recommend this beer and would rank it as one of my favorite uplands.

4.6/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The lambic was a handsome golden color with a modest layer of bubbles crowning the glass.

Smell - It is easy to tell this is a peach lambic. The peaches, largely sour, are intense in the aroma.

Taste - Sour Peaches. I really can't identify much beyond the very sour peaches. That is not a bad thing.

Mouthfeel - The sour clings to the tongue and sides of the mouth. There is a stickiness about the mouthfeel.

Overall - So far, this might be my favorite sour from Upland.
