Had at the Upland Sour Wild Funk fest and it was out-funking-standing! Loved it!

Pours a hazy pink/reddish blonde with some offwhite head. The body looks just like a strawberry. Beautiful hue. This beer smells like fresh picked strawberries. The nose jumps out of the glass with some tartness but loads of fruit. The "$6 of strawberries per bottle" pays off. This beer tastes like fresh picked strawberries that are slightly unripe. Great tartness is completely in balance with the fruit and they play well together. Worthy of a second glass at an event with other great sours. Highly recommend this beer. I can't speak to the other batches, but the current batch is fantastic.

Opens with a bang. Delayed foam over about 3 seconds after de-corking.

A- Pours completely hazy and mild orange to peach in color. An initially large head calms down and forms a thin layer of lace on the top of the beer. No lacing.

S- Holy sour. Big, somewhat fruity, acidic sour scents here. Just a bit of strawberry profile. Pretty sour all the way through with some yeast at the very end.

T- Tart, sour, juicy, and fruity all in one beer. Starts very sour, more like a gueuze with the level of sour. Moves toward a tart strawberry flavor before the full juiciness of the berries kicks in. Really displays the fruit at the end and after the drink finishes. Feels and tastes like pure strawberry juice on the tongue after the drink ends.

M- Just like a lambic should be; highly carbonated, somewhat heavy with the larger grain bill, and easy to drink except for the level of sour. I could drink this all night, even with the intense fruity sourness.

Overall, a somewhat unusual fruit for a lambic, but it works. Frankly, the natural sour qualities of the strawberry make its flavor somewhat difficult to pick out of the lambic, but once you do, it's delicious!
