Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to Alex for sharing this one.
Pours a murky honey orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is super sour with malt, fruit, vinegar, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit and vinegar flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a fantastic beer with an awesome set of aromas and flavors coming from this blend of barrels.

750ml of Blend #3, opened up by Doug right after K13. Poured into a snifter today, 1/24/2014.
App- hazy dark yellow-gold body, 1 finger white head, ok retention, no lacing. I was the second person to pour and the first person's pour had a much clearer pour. Clearly there's a good bit of sediment floating around in here.
Smell- straight up acidity and sourness, oak, non-descript fruit aromas, a little bit of Upland funk
Flavour- 8/10 sour quotient, quite acidic. Malts, stonefruit, dry oak tannins. But most of all, vinegary sour.
Mouthfeel- Nice full bodied, well carbonated, on the verge of creaminess, goes down very well.
Overall- Very enjoyable beer that is extremely sour, but adds just enough more on top of the acidity that it's not just a sour bomb, but is fairly complex. Enjoyed the stonefruit flavours and the dry oak finish on this beer. Upland is the real deal.
