Thanks to my father-in-law for muling bottles of the most recent release. Shared at the post-Christmas tasting in Chicago. Served in my Cantillon tulip.

Pours a really magnificent blueberry color with a nice pink head. Really attractive coloring. While this was quite nice, I was immediately distractive by the overpoweringly-assertive nature of the blueberries in the nose. It was a symphony of blueberry breakfast items with loads of blueberry syrup and pancakes plus a slight amount of tartness. Really well done. The taste nails the fresh blueberry as well and adds in a touch of sourness. The mouthfeel is a bit tart and a bit sweet. Drinks incredibly well. I think the blueberries are the highlight of this one and I won't be waiting long to drink my other bottle. I think the fruit character that really makes this beer will be gone well before this really sours up, if that happens.

Had this twice once at the Broadripple Brewfest and again at the Upland Lambic release last night! The difference being 1 was a year old and the other was fresh. If you want your beer more on the sour side let these celler a year and let the Brett do it's thing.
The year old bottle was much more tart and acidic which isn't a bad thing at all considering these are Lambics!
Flavor is more present on the pallette in the after taste than up front and an almost watery but very easy to drink 6%alc. Very well hidden and non present in the taste.
The oak really jumps out both in the nose and flavor. The blueberry flavor is there but more present after you swallow on the tongue it lingers then you say ooohh yea nice!
