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

Serving type: on-tap

This one holds a special place in my heart in that it is from Bloomington, IN the home of my alma mater, Indiana University.

It along with Sierra Nevada and my hometown Goose Island, really introduced me to craft beer in my late teens and early twenties.

I think at the time when this brewery opened in 1998, this beer was a nice choice for one opening in a college market. Nothing too flashy and easy drinking.

Fast forward to 2014. Has it has held up over time? I say yes. For a Wheat Beer it is very approachable and I could see myself still picking this out when the mood strikes.

Upland has since moved into more adventurous brewing styles (They are know for their sours now) but this flagship is still a good solid beer.

Go Big Red and pick up an Upland Wheat Ale!
