3.9/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours clear and the color of blackberry juice; the head builds up to a finger and sticks reasonably well; splashy lacing

Smell: Tart blackberry tones with an acetic character along with oak

Taste: Strong, acetic vinegar tones dominate, with hints of blackberry flavor peaking through; funky, but mostly sour, through the middle with a dry, oaky finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation; very puckery

Overall: Upland makes the most acetic sours I have tasted and this one is right up there, though not as sour as some of the others they have made

On tap at Stoneyard Beer Hall and Grill in Webster, NY.

This one pours dark-ish purple/blue hybrid, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like blackberry vinegar- it's super sour, but also kinda vinegary, which is a problem for me.

This honestly tastes like blackberries soaked in vinegar. There's a bit of oak here, but it's honestly too sour, and too vinegary. I like sour beers, a lot, actually- but this seems just poorly made to me.

This is kind of thin, with not a lot of drinkability. There's a normal level of carbonation.

This really did not do it for me.
