My husband and I grabbed this when we were down at Upland over the summer and sampled it 10/23/2011.
I love sour beers, but in the past Lambic's from 'some breweries' (being nice being nice!) have disappointed me due to being way too sweet.
The appearance is gorgeous! Cloudy yellow with some inclusions and a white foamy head, the head quickly dissipates. Smelling it is drool-worthy - a sour citrus scent dominates with a slightly biscuit undertone. I don't get peach from the scent, but I get a sour-sniff of what's to come!
Oh.. the taste... Sour in general to a sour peach, to a very sweet peach nectar. Finishes tingling on the tongue with a sweet lingering peach on the palate. Oh so delicious! Medium carbonation carries the sour and sweet notes both nicely over the tongue.
Lovely lovely lambic, almost champagne like in it's carbonation/sour interplay. One of my favorite fruit sour beers so far!

They knocked it out of the park with this one. Truly great.
Beer is hazy and dark yellow with a wispy head. No lacing, nice carbonation.
Aroma is super sour, citric and acetic with nice peach notes.
Beer is thin and heavily carbonated on the palate. I really enjoy this beer a lot. It is acetic and lactic, mildly citric or succinic, nice peach flavor, tartness at the back, I really love this beer. I want more more more.

2008, 1st release.
Little to no noise from the cork, a soft wispy bit of skim floats across the surface, with a healthy ring of bubbles around the edge. Bright jewel tone clarity, glowing honey orange.
Farmy whiff of barnyard, acetic fuzzy peach skins, buttery oak.
Huge coconut and vanilla oddly enough, these oak characteristics bleed through the acetic sourness of the fruit. Discernable peach flesh and pits, dry aftertaste with hints of brett and oaky vanilla. Puckering initially, drying out soon after. Light bodied with minimal carbonation, the intensity of it's flavors make up for the lack of body, and traditional lambic is still (flat) in some cases. Extremely drinkable, especially quenching. This has really come around after a couple years, when fresh it resembled straight peach juice. Thanks Joe!
Edit: 2nd 2008 bottle opened was still completely flat and one-dimensional peach juice. Oh well... hopefully going forward Upland will have the carbonation issues taken care of.
2nd Edit: 2011 batch. Properly carbonated, fruity with tangy peach, moderately sour. Well done, an improvement to be sure.
