Late 2010 batch. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

Pours a hazy orange-peach color with a thin white head that dissipates pretty quickly into not much other than a thin collar around the edges. The nose is pretty impressive right off the bat, reminding me a lot of Flaming Fury. There's a strong peach presence behind quite a bit of a lactic character and some mild funk. The taste is at the same level. Not quite as much of a funky presence as I would ultimately like, but they held onto this one for long enough, as the sourness and peach are both at levels that are highly complementary of each other right now. Feel is nice with a good pucker factor and sour finish. Drinks pretty easily; I had no problems at all finishing my portion of the bottle.

The last in the series of Uplands as I do not believe I will be able to try the Kiwi. Still it was a decent, if not underwhelming run through. Served chill and poured into a snifter, the corked and capped 750ml bottle was consumed on 06/02/2009.



The pour was a lot like what I had seen in the rest of the series, lack luster. Pale peach color highlighted a light amber that had no visible carbonation or head what so ever. Lots of tart, acidic aroma coming off of it. Vinegar and what I guess to be the remnants of the peach flavor. As I lean in for a sip, there is a quick shot of fruit up front but it quickly fades leaving nothing in its wake but a mellowed, and very sour wild ale. Light on the carbonation, and easily drinkable, albeit a touch boring.



I have found this whole series to be underwhelming. The fruit flavor was absent in most all of them, blackberry aside, and the lack of carbonation and overall pour look could be attributed to all but one having a leaky cork. Not sure what is going on with these fully, but there are underwhelming to say the least.

Thank you very much to Mark for picking all these lambics up for me. Enjoyed on St. Patrick's Day evening.

A: Luckily this didn't explode like my bottle of Strawberry did, but it is highly carbonated and a cloudy orange color with a big white head.

S: Plenty of peach aroma to this. Like a lot of peach beers, a fairly pronounced bacterial aroma, but the amount of peach fruit and skin smell is quite nice. A moderate oak character along with a touch of grass.

T: A very solid peach flesh and skin flavor which stays on the tongue throughout the sip. Still sort of on the sweet side for a lambic, but there is a nice acidity to it. Just a touch of tannic fruit skin/pit and oak.

M: Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation.

O: On the sweet side, but the fresh peach flavor is really enjoyable. One of the better Upland lambic varieties.

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.

A - Poured out a cloudy, orange color with gold highlights. It had a small, white head that was very bubbly. Not much retention and minimal lace.

S - Peaches with a mustiness - possibly the Bret.

T - Peaches with a tart sourness and a yeasty kick. It comes across a little musty, too with just a hint sweetness.

M - It was very crisp and popped. A light to medium bodied ale that finished dry.

D - This was really quite good. I'm really not a fan of peach, but I liked this.

I had this at the bottle share during Jackie O's bottle release this weekend. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours an orangish golden color with a layer of white head and some nice lacing.

Smell: Tart citrus notes with a mild peach smell. Funky haylike smell in there as well.

Taste: Very smooth and funky. Crisp with a nice, mild citrus peach flavor. Quite good and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: The body is light with a tingle of carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was more refreshing than the raspberry. Not quite as sour either. Really good.

I think this was from the 10/12/10, Batch 42-90 release, as I don't believe there is a newer bottling? Served in a tulip while having dinner with the GTT Geek Girls.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to nothing. Murky peach body with some random bits of sediment present.

S - The aroma is predominantly lactic sourness, with some spicy oak and mild funkiness. Peach flavor is somewhat understated, but does eventually come around as the beer warms up. Still, this is one of the least fruit-forward Upland lambics - has a bit more in common with the Reserve in some ways.

T - The taste is quite similar to the aroma, but there's a mild seltzer water and dry oak character that detracts from the predominant and largely enjoyable peach yogurt flavor.

M - Medium body, juicy texture, with some moderate carbonation spritz. Dry and tannic texture, with suggestions of under-ripe peach flesh and oak.

D - Enjoyable for the most part, but I could have gone for more peach flavor. Really easy to drink, but a bit lacking in depth and complexity.

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.

From 01/21/11 notes. Brought to a small tasting.

a - Pours a murky bright orange color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of very light peach, tart fruit, and oak.

t - Tastes of tart peach, oak, fruity malts, and tart fruit.

m - Light body and high carbonation.

d - Solid, but probably my least favorite of the 4 Uplands we opened. I thought all 4 were solid, but none of them blew me away.
