3.98/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip. Big thanks to Rempo for this. 2010 vintage.

3.5 A: Opaque dark orange color. Two fingers of off-white, fizzy, soda-like head fell at breakneck speed and left no lacing.

4.0 S: The nose is simple, but quite pleasant. Lots of peach, especially as this one warms up. Then a moderate amount of oak and a hefty vanilla component, which gives the illusion of peaches and creme. The nose isn't very sour, per se, but it is tart with lactic acid fruitiness.

4.0 T: The taste is a lot more sour than the nose. There's a considering acidic component with moderate acetic notes and plenty of tangy lactic fruitiness. Peach is prominent again, while the oak and vanilla are a bit softer. A nice residual sweetness balances the sourness. A mild tannic astringency.

4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess as well. Goes down easy.

4.0 D: Another well made wild from Upland. This one is already decently sour. I wonder how it will age. Anyway, solid all around.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with lots of bubbles and a thick fluffy white head. The nose has light notes of a funky brett, leather and a touch of salt. Soft golden peach sits nicely behind the lambic notes. The flavor is more brett forward, sweetness is a bit stronger than I anticipated, the peach is clean and tasty with a soft sourness and a nice acidity in the finish. The body is creamy, light and fluffy with a fair bit of carbonation.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into multiple glasses. Thanks to emerge077 for sharing.

2008 release

A: Pours a hazy, glowing apricot nectar color. A thin, bubbly layer of foam spreads out on top before disappearing completely. No lace.

S: Scented of peach flesh with moderately tangy skin and whiffs of vinegar.

T: See above.

M: Not too sour. More tangy than anything else. Dry and palate cleansing.

O: Pretty frigging good. Easy to drink and suprisingly refreshing.

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.

Batch 42-09, bottled 10/12/10, reviewed Feb 2012.

A: This poured a hazy light gold with fizzy white head.
S: It smelled like tart and funky oak, with sour white grape and dry champagne, and a little sweet peach and vinegar and citrus zest.
T: It tasted like very tart and sour puckering white grape and dry champagne and funky oak, with some sweet peach and vinegar and citrus zest. It had a crisp and clean and lasting sour aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Nice bubbly body.
D: This was a great lambic, but the peach character was quite subdued. The scent and taste were bold yet delicate, and the body was fitting. Not sure how this was 1.5 years ago (fresh), but I wish there was more peach at this point. Otherwise, this was a fantastic brew to sip and savor. Could age a long time, as long as you won't miss the hint of peach. Recommended.

Bottled 10/12/10. Sampled alongside the other seven fruit lambics.

A: Gusher of a bottle, like most of the other flavors. Pours a hazy golden peach color with a huge white head.
S: Light peach, apricot, and citrus. Perfumey scents.
T: Much more peach than the nose let on. Not as much citrus as the other flavors but it’s there. Very good fresh peach taste with a lemon finish and juicy peach juice aftertaste.
M: Medium-full body, chewy mouthfeel, fuzzy carbonation, greasy mouth and acidic.
O: Peach is a tough flavor but this beer was delicious. Not my favorite of the lineup but great.

This beer was sent to me by Mikesgroove. Thanks Mike!

Upland Peach has a soft orange-colored body with no head. Uh-oh, looks like another dead flat lambic from Upland.

The aroma is fruity in the form of peach, with hints of tartness and a very funky flavor to it.

Peach is the best upland lambic that I have had so far. A moderately strong peach flavor comes through in the beginning, but just as it begins to get to the point where I would call the beer “sweet” a good bite of sourness cuts in. The sourness is definitely strong, and just a little bit puckering, but not overwhelming. This beer really shines in the finish, features a great funky flavor that I would assume is Brett; it tastes just a little bit like shoe leather.

I hated the flat mouthfeel on the blueberry, but it doesn't bother me as much on this one because I enjoy the beer more. With that said, a little bit of life would be nice.

Upland's Peach lambic is quite good, one of the better fruited lambics that I have tried.

Thanks to Kyle for opening this one up! 2010 vintage.

A: Cork popped with a bit of a gush. Poured a hazy light orange/peach color. Small white fizzy head on top.

S: Nice tartness right away with some peaches and white grapes. The funk is light and in the background to the lactic tartness and peachy aroma.

T: Nice tart/sourness with the fruit underneath. Mostly peach with some faint apricot/stone fruit/lemon underneath, but the peach dominates.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.

O: For its age, has held up very nicely. Lots of peach still in it, though I imagine some of it has faded. Bet it is quite good fresh, not that it isn't now, just a different beast.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Thanks to kstrickler for picking this up for me!

(A)- Gusher! Thankfully I had glasses nearby; probably only lost a few ounces. Pours a cloudy pale orange color. Produced a small white head that dissipated to bubbles.

(S)- A dry acidic fresh peach fruit blast. Some subtle grapefruit too. Mildly lactic in a sour sense.

(T)- A very dry, yet acidic heavy peach and orange fruit flavor. Not super sour, but the acidity is nice and sets a nice background tartness to it overall.

(M)- A nice carbonation level and balance. A great acidic fruit presence. Not very complex, but it delivers its fruit sour kick well.

(D)- A solid lambic from the states. A fitting sour/acidic kick with a refreshing fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing; a great sour for the warmer weather that is approaching. I could have finished this whole bottle easily.

Bottle shared by Sean at our mini sour tasting in honor of McDiddypop's engagement.

UPLAND PEACH IS A MISSILE. If you invert the bottle and unscrew the cage, it will fly all the way to the magnetosphere.

A - What remains pours a turbid peach hue, with a good bit of with froth and effervescence still remaining.

S - The nose is sticky and overripe peach, heavily, with a big funk that seems to be deeply aligned with the natural peach character. In essence, it smells like a pile of fallen rotting peaches in a peach orchard. Sweaty and farmy notes are gleaned as well.

T - The taste is right in line with the aroma, and offers tart and fruit-juicy notes of peach, vinegar and lactic acid. I get some medicinal Brett in the background, but it is mostly obscured by fruit and acidity. The brew is very reminiscent of peach kombucha.

M - A bit thin and spritzy for my liking, and overcarbonated upon opening, obviously.

O - This is another very nice fruit-forward lambic from Upland; I've yet to be disappointed by any of their fruit Lambic. If the carbonation issues were handled, I'd hold it in even higher esteem.

2010 750 mL cork and caged bottle shared by Jeff with Adam.

Mild gusher pours a murky golden orange with a big white head; minimal retention or lacing. Aroma is mildly sour and lactic, light oak and some fruity peach skins. Flavor has all of the components of the nose, but lacks any cohesion or balance. Sweet, juicy peach fruit dominates the front of the palate and seems to float on top of a strong lactic, earthy and funky base. Body is medium thick, well carbonated; puckering and sour. Pleasant, but forgettable; delivers the promise of peaches but isn't a great lambic.

Poured from 750ml caged and cork bottle. This one gushed resulting in about 1/3 of the bottle being lost. Shared with Lukafer.

A- Pours a hazy peach color. No real head on this beer just some light whisps of white foam on the top of the beer. Left spotty lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Strong vinegar notes with a hint of lactic acidic bursts here and there. I had to take my nose out of the snifter to get a hint of peach way far in the backing. This only comes through in hints though which was sad to say the least. Overall it just smells funky but not really in a good or bad way...it's just kind of there.

T- The front of this is funky with vinegar like strong notes. Also there is some bready malts in the front that last into the middle of the flavor profile. Some very very very light peach hints that fade rather quickly in the middle. This made me sad because I had higher hopes for the peach flavor in this. Ending goes back with some sour pucking notes. Even this though comes through with a big vinegar zest to it.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is very light for the style. Vinegar notes left on the palate is all. Some light peach notes with tons of vinegar bitterness/sourness left in the aftertaste with hints of alcohol. Light overall drying on the palate from alcohol. Flavors were one sided and not toward what it should be. Off flavors couldn't be detected.

D- This beer was average for the style. Upland really let me down with this beer and I don't think I'll ever buy this lambic from them again. Bottle gushed and there were no real lasting peach flavor. It was good as a flavorless just sour mess.

750ml bottle from the cellar.

Pours orangy gold with crystle clarity and zero head. Barely a trace of carbonation with a stretch-pour, just a fine bead around the edge of the placid surface.

Aromatics lead off with plenty of fruit-laden brett. Peach juice, catty funk, earthy must, and oiled boards. Slightly peppery with hints of vinegar and wet socks.

Light bodied with a mouthfeel that falls flat due to the low carbonation.

Fresh peaches with a wheaty twang start the palate. Mild but bright acid pulls through as well as traces of lemon oil and vinegar.

Finishes with lingering fruit, tart acid, and a peppery burn.

Pretty much a letdown from the get-go. A flat pour followed by a promising nose but fairly weak in the palate. Lacking the sourness and sharp acid base needed for the style and I was at least expecting some tartness from the pits. Tasty enough but not worth the expense of the bottle.

Thanks to TPatuto (Tom) for this one. Shared with capra12 and schen9303 at an Upland tasting. Poured from a corked and caged bottle (batch 42-90, bottled 10/12/10) into a Darkness snifter. Paired with the fruit.

Pours a .25 finger white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Beer is a slightly clear peach-orange. The clearest of the bunch of Upland lambics. Lacing is stringy and patchy with no cling.

Nose is white peaches, plastic, and Brett. Very clean and pure and nicely aromatic. Simple but very appetizing.

Opens peach, slightly spicy yeast. Tart. Brett, hay, and slightly tart and sweet peaches towards the end. Peach sugars at the finish with just a bit of tartness in the aftertaste along with a signature bit of plastic. Very tasty and almost exactly like the fruit.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and slightly grainy in the mouth. Oily going down. Clean finish with very little aftertaste. Nice.

This was the non-consensus favorite of all the Upland lambics (I personally preferred the Persimmon). The fruit comes through beautifully and the clean, tart and sweet flavor of the peach works perfectly to create a subtle, yet complex, quenching, and enjoyable lambic.

This bottle pours the muddiest or apricot oranges with no head at all. It began to foam really quickly but I poured all of it before it could billow out of the bottle. It smells like a very, very dry fruit infused sour. It also has a good amount of hay and funkiness. It tastes of dried apricot and of dried peach skins. It reminds me of dried fruit through and through. The bitterness is both efficient and appealing. The flavor is between apricot and peach, which is confusing. I do like it though. It drinks very crisp. The carbonation is actually perfect, especially considering it began to foam and then that was it. This beer was good but probably not $20 a bottle good. It's a good sour, which I had been told, but it wasn't spectacular. I realize it was a 400 or so bottle batch but it could've been better. I have another bottle so hopefully it gets better with time. Good beer though, not great.

Bottle. Poured into a Lost Abbey tulip glass a cloudy opaque amber orange color with a white head that collars around the glass. Nice Sour aroma of peach, apricot, lemon zest, and slight vinegar. It’s not overly peachy in flavor. Slightly sweet start with hints of fruit, lemon, slight medicinal, and a white wine flavor like Chardonnay. The sourness level is moderate. No apparent alcohol notes. Light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Clean ending.

750ml bottle - batch 42-09 (10/12/10 bottling date) poured into a Portsmouth tulip.

A - Bottle opend with a solid pop and after a few seconds started to lightly erupt from the neck of the bottle (based on previous Upland experience I opened this one in the sink with glasses ready to go on the counter...proud to say I didn't lose a drop which is a big departure from the previous Upland fruit lambic I opened) Pours a well hazed and yeasty grapefruit juice looking beer with a big 2-3 fingers of head that is a bit fizzy and falls rather quickly.

S - Aromas of peaches, a bit sweaty, some light funk, big hits of woody oak, yeasty, lactic tartness, lemons, apricots. Good - but this is definitely no Fou Foune...

T - Peachy, quite sweaty, tart but under control - this is not really all that puckering, yeasty, very woody and a bit of barnyard that is kept mostly in check (sadly). Lactic sourness, fruit, mild sweetness...

M - Tart, a bit thin but not watery, strong carbonation with a good tingly and prickly feel. Good, but not amazing...no complaints but not memorable either.

O - A very good fruit lambic, but really does fall short compared to Fou Foune (which I understand is really a upper echelon peach lambic, but still...). Solid and I would love to have another, but not sure this lived up to the advance hype and demand that this beer commanded around its release. Definitely try it if you have the oppportunity, but don't go crazy trying to obtain it either.

750ml corked and caged bottle traded to me in person at dark lord day by khumbard. thanks! drank from my new russian river "tion" glass.

as soon as the cage was taken off i went to grab my camera. "pop!" the cork came shooting from the bottle and the beer started gushing out. i guess that explains the warning on some bottles not to point it at your face. close to 1/3 of this bottle was lost.

A- whats left enters my glass a hazy glowing peach colored body with a very small and fizzy head. it literally vanished before my eyes. little to nothing gets left behind for lacing either. disappointing.

S- the smell redeems this beer so far. lots of fresh peaches are jumping out of the glass. not artificial smelling at all. light acetone notes and very little or no barnyard funk usually associated with this style. overall, the nose is a nice balance of sweet and sour.

T- the taste starts out with more of the fresh peaches that i can smell. vinegar and acetone. more sour than the nose. a little bit of the oak barrel sneaks through.

M- the body is on the light side, and the carbonation is extremely high. nice and sour without overpowering.

O- maybe losing one third of it to gushing soured this for me (no pun intended), or maybe its me comparing it to the styles european brothers, but this just doesnt do it for me. i think i traded a cantillon gueuze for this, and although im greatfull for the trade and chance to try this, i cant help but feel i got the short end of the stick on this trade. my first and possibly only try with an upland lambic.

Thanks photekut for this one.
Large corked and capped bottle poured into a tulip.

Interestingly, when you pop open the cap, there is some fizzing coming out, on the sides of the cork, and then you pop open the cork, and minimal carbonation. The cork seemed quite tight, so I don't know how this happened, but it is the second Upland I get the same thing happening.
Golden, minimal haziness, little to no head; whatever covers the beer is just a few tiny bubbles.
Aroma is quite funky upfront, leathery and horse blanket which I did not expect based on other reviews; it also has a subtle oakiness, peach notes, some tartness and acidity.
Light to medium bodied, refreshing but could definitely use a bit more carbonation.
A little acidity on the palate, subtle oakiness and peach, tartness, not a lot more.
I would love to see more carbonation, and some of that funk translate into the flavor. I like how the peach is just a note as opposed to an overwhelming flavor, but this one needs a little bit more work.

Shared with DSC... Served in tulips...
Got this from backfat in an excellent in person trade... Thanks man!

Looks like a grapefruit juice blended with orange juice. No head. No lace. Looks dull.

Smells like a sour blonde-- plus some peaches. Not blowing me away. This is really undercarbonated. It's a disappointment in that regard.

The taste isn't bad, but it isn't top of the line either-- the taste has asliggt sweetness, some peaches, some lactic acid, and some generic citric fruit.

The body feels more carbonated than it looks, but still feels a bit low to me. Overall, this isn't bad--- I think I set the bar a bit high after drinking Cascade Apricot... This one just doesn't blow me away... I can enjoy this beer... But I won't be searching it out.

750 ml bottle served in a CCB snifter. 2010 vintage.

A: Pours a hazy peach color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring, not much lace.

S: A ton of peach sweetness with a mild yogurt and underlying tartness to it. Sweet wheat and cracker malts with a little lactic sourness. Some mild grass.

T: Same as the nose. A ton of fresh peach with a gummi peach candy like sweetness to it. Sweet cracked wheat/cracker malt combo with mild lactic sourness. Some drying tartness on the finish.

M: Light bodied with some spritzy carbonation. Drying finish.

O: Definitely enjoyed this one as I'm a fan of peach. The played off the sweetness of the peach very well.

Huge thanks to wisconsinality for another week night surprise. 2010 vintage.

A: Upon popping the cork a massive flow of white head spewed from the bottle. A quick run to the sink and pours into our tulips and we were in business. Golden orange color. Huge white head. Not much lace.

S: Mild tart peaches, tiny bit of funkiness but nothing like a real lambic. Reminds me of watered down orange juice.

T: Mild citrus fruit is pretty much all I can pick up. Pretty much reminds me of watered down tang. Lightly sour but nothing special.

M: Light bubbly body. Way more carbonation than I want in my lambics.

D: Well a bit of a disappointment. I've heard this ages like a champ. Well call me in 5 years and we can talk again.

Received one of each of these delicious brews from TheodorHerzl. After I reviewed the Blackberry Lambic I swore I wouldn't drink anymore of these for a few months. Well I couldn't wait, it was freaking delicious. Drank from my Stone India Pale Ale flute while watching New England vs San Diego.

Appearance- Pours a nice hazy orange yellowish that is pretty much the exact color you'd expect. No fizz, no cap and collar and no lacing. Shit... I'm assuming this is WAY under carbonated. Guess I should have waited.
Smell- Like the Blackberry there's not a lot of that crazy funk in the nose like you'd expect. There is a tiny bit of mustiness but it's very light and very pleasant. The Peach is more prominent that I expected leaving a nice ripe lingering fruitiness. Oak and vanilla seems way more pronounced than in the Blackberry which I'm kind of assumed since Peach is a much mellower fruit than Blackberry.
Taste- Yep, hardly ANY carbonation at all. F! The Peach is very prominent and delicious as hell! Lightly sour from the Brett and not as tart as the other Lambic I had. A very light vinegary side though makes sure you don't forget this is a Lambic. It tickles the back of the throat with that familiar acidity. The Peach gets even nicer as this warms and the oak and vanilla really come forward. The finish has that same lingering vanilla woody goodness that the Blackberry did. So awesome!
Mouthfeel- Well since it's not carbonated the body feels really thin and watery and it pains me to give this a lower score than I know it deserves.
Drinkability- I really feel that the fact that this has almost no carbonation probably affected the flavor a bit which is what keeps me from giving it a 5 that I know it deserves. It's remarkably delicious and the Peach is so perfectly potent that I almost can't believe it. If you have a bottle of this you may want to sit on it for a couple months just to be sure it's fully carbonated. My score really doesn't reflect how good this beer is because Mouthfeel and Appearance have to take hit. Huge thanks to Matt for the opportunity!

Pours a murky yellowish orange with a nice white head. The head dissipates quickly. The beer looks fairly pretty. Smells funky and sour with a lot of nice light fruit flavours. The peach is. S subtle on the nose. The tastes is nicely fruity. Lots of light peach flavours. Vry well carbonated and a solid mouthfeel
