Summoned on 7/12/10 wow time flies. I thought I only got this two years ago.
A: Pours a clear cherry wood caramel into a wide mouth glass
S: Aromas of sour lacto, wood, bitter spices and brettonmyces. Flemish Sour ale aromas. Reminds me of Monks Café Flemish Sour ale.
T: This starts off super bitter at first, lots of oak, a bittering taste that does definitely have some dandelion like qualities to it. Bitter ornamental salad tastes presumably from spices and dandalions. Light red wine flavors mixing with a bretty oak and lacto. Behind the first few flavors I do not pick up a ton of complexity . The beer is relatively watery without a ton of depth.
M: Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Slightly thin for the style in my opinion.
O: Overall not bad, but would not seek out again. After having a number of Uplands wild ales a few years back, I held onto this one and am just getting around to opening it. Not sure it was worth the wait.

Big thanks to Jedwards for the final pre-move blowout cellar crash. Color is brown with a soapy cluster of bubbles around the edges. Nose reveals tart dark fruits. Taste is exactly what you would expect from the nose - vinous and earthy with some medicinal phenols. Mouthfeel is medium-light with an even carbonation and some acidity. Overall, a solid dark sour. I've been wanting to try this beer for a while and I wasn't disappointed.

Pours a very hazy, dark amber/chestnut brown color with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Splotchy lacing left behind.
Sweet vinous aroma with earthy oak, vanilla, roasted malts and vinous dark fruit notes. Strong red wine barrel with toasted oak, red wine, dark grape and cherry. Underneath, there's some roasted dark malt, vinous fruits, musty brett and subtle acetic acid.
Medium bodied with tart, acidic sournesss along with toasted oak and vinous dark fruit flavors. Tart with dry, musty brett and lactic funk followed by caramel malt, toffee, cherry, grape and currants. Light and easy to drink which is surprising considering the complexity. A very solid dark sour from Upland.
