3.7/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a hazy, "wheat cloud" yellow with a little off-white head that breaks into small pieces and recedes fairly rapidly. Beautifully-clean aroma comprised of wheat malt, lemon, and some spicy coriander.
Loads of lemon and coriander flavor, followed by a bit of clove and a slight bitterness, possibly a result of malted wheat. It lacks some of the yeast-driven complexity of most Belgian wits, but that is a good thing in this case. A little light on the palate with a somewhat harsh, prickly carbonation. A softer, creamier mouthfeel would go a long way here. Some astringent dryness on the back end.
Despite my nitpicking on the mouthfeel, I could (and sometimes do) drink this all night. Upland Wheat Ale is one of the most refreshing, drinkable beers I have had.

On tap at Norse Bar in Chicago.
A: Cloudy, bright yellow with about a finger of foamy, white head.
S: Banana, some lemon, and very pronounced yeast.
T: Clean and crisp, but overly bready. Really no other interesting flavors present to give this beer any sort of character.
M: Light and moderately carbonated.
O: Overall, this beer is quite refreshing, though I wish it tasted like something, anything, to make me want to drink it again.

On tap in Bloomington.
A: Pale gold color with about two fingers of head. Very effervescent
S: Little to nothing. Maybe some corn and malts? Maybe?
T: Has a carbonated malty sweet lead. There really isn't much to balance out the sweetness.
M: it's fizzy fresh and peppy. Maybe the best thing going.
Overall a fairly lousy brew
