A: Cloudy red and very carbonated.

S: Good funky sour aroma. It is definitely filled with blackberries.

T: Great sour funk initially but falls short of where I think it should be. That said, it is great.

M: I would like it to be a bit funkier but it is good. Not quite enough gland ass-kicking.

D: Damn good. Could be more sour for sure but a great start.

Had this one with all the others last night and this was one of the better ones. Lots of flavor and a very nice pleasant oak presence. The after taste was a treat leaving a very pleasant almost barn yard effect on the palette. Blueberry flavor and the oak barrel blended nicely to give this beer great flavor and exceptionally pleasant treat ..If you're after the Upland Lambic this one is one worth seeking out. I'm going to age one of these in the celler and try it again in a year or 2..MMMHHH I guraentee ya it's going to only get better as the Brett does it's thing!
