Finally getting around to reviewing this. Batch 1.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear honey hue with a thin head that fades to look still.

S - Aromas of nice bright fresh acidity, bright. Apples, vinegar, stone fruit, bright and tart.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice tartness. Pleasant vinegar and white wine notes. Good apple cider vinegar and stone fruit. Quite pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, though it disappears quickly.

O - Overall this was a very solid sour from Upland. Certainly aged nicely and the base Sour Reserve worked nicely with the white wine.

Thanks to rudzud, 2014 vintage
No head at all, crystal clear yellow honey colour

Nose super sour bacteria funk, little acetone, loads of acidity, apple cider vinegar, white grape skin, nice fruity grapes and hint of sTone fruit

Taste very very sour, souring bacteria funk, big grape skin and White wine, fruity crisp white wine, touch stone fruit and apple cider vinegar, big acidity, little flemmy on the finish, hint of buttery oak

Mouth is med to lighter bod, big bright acidity and super sour, touch flemmy, light acidity

Overall pretty good, wonder how it would be fresh as the white wine was nice but not incredible

Appearance - The poured a hazy straw yellow with a bubbly white head.

Smell - Grapes and buttered popcorn highlighted the nose with evident acidity.

Taste - Tropical fruits were accompanied by a high level of acidity. The acid level was Rolaids inducing. This led to the grape skin notes that dried out the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation pushed away the sweetness, but not the acid burn.

Overall - I liked Vinosynth red much more. This was too acidic for me.

This beer pours pale yellow and hazy. It had a fleeting white head that disappeared leaving no trace.

The aroma is tart and funky, just what I want in a sour. I get hints of mildew-y basement.

The taste is nice and sour with just enough funk to come through. The sourness kind of dominates after a few drinks. The taste borders on vinegary without crossing that line.

Light to medium mouthfeel with a dry finish.

I loved this beer at first. The sourness became a bit much after about eight ounces. I shouldn't have been greedy. I should have shared it with a buddy or two. It is a great beer, but maybe too much of a good thing for this sissy.

Lots of juicy citrus up front with a back of tanginess and sour. I get a lemonade like quality before it lets out a nectarine, tangerine and orange. Drinks like a wine.
