Living in Indiana, I should be hyping this, but just can't

Looks and smells good, but strawberry flavor is off and ends pretty dry. By far my least favorite of the Upland fruited beers.

Serving: 750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled on 9/14/14, making this almost 10 months old.

A: Pours a hazy orange color, loads of fizzy carbonation. Cloudy. Looks almost like an IPA.

S: Cheese, hay, barn, grass. Slight notes of strawberry, but not super prominent.

T: Very, very tart. Super sour. Beyond all the sourness, a nice strawberry flavor comes in near the finish. Mostly a fresh strawberry flavor, but some elements of like a candy strawberry.

M: Sour, sour, sour. Great carbonation, but just can't get past how sour it is. Not undrinkable, but definitely don't wan't more than a small pour.

O: My second venture into the Upland sours, this one is way too tart for me. Flavors are nice, the strawberry comes through well. But just too sour. I would probably enjoy this more at a bottle share as a taster. No way could I have a whole bomber myself. Glad I split this at least.

Recommendation: Not the finest sour or lambic from Upland, and certainly not an entry-level beer for the new sour drinker. Pass unless you're already well versed in the style and want to try a nice new strawberry explosion.
