2013 vintage bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a peachy red-orange, lots of bubbles but no real head to speak of. White ring of foam around the glass dissipates quickly.

Smell is a whole lot a funk. More strawberry in the nose as it warms. A bit of salt and watermelon on the nose. You can tell this is going to be sour.

Taste is all sour. Like face melting/teeth grinding sour. As my palate adjusts or maybe as it warms, I can taste a lot of strawberry mid sip. Finish is like white vinegar.

Feels fairly carbonated but the sour is pretty distracting. I can feel the acid hit the back of my throat when I swallow.

Overall this is an excellent beer. I wish it was a bit less sour so that the strawberry was at the forefront. I would like to try this fresh to see if it's the age that has made this beer so sour.

Purchased from an Upland retail location today.

A: Pours a cloudy blood orange color with little head, lots of bubbles, and seemingly endless carbonation. Fun in a bottle.

S: Strawberries, funk, vinegar, extremely acidic.

T: The strawberry flavor takes a back seat to the funk, sourness, and almost citrus peel like acidity. It's good, but it's not a heavy strawberry taste. Tart, puckering, but there is a vibrant juicy fruitiness in there.

M: Feels like a carbonated explosion in your mouth. Light, bubbly, and lively.

This is good, but Upland makes many other products that are less labor intensive and don't cost $27.50 a bottle. Consider this a once or twice a year treat.
