look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is ruby red with a bubbly and active pink head. The head settles into nothing pretty quickly leaving a glass that appears like a lighter red wine.

The aroma is sweet raspberry jam and fresh tart fruity berries right off the bush. Can tell its going to be tart just from the aroma.

Flavor smacks you in the mouth with tartness at first but settles down a bit as my taste buds adjust. Fresh berry, both ripe and just underripe add to the tartness but a smoothed a bit by an underlying raspberry jam that add sweetness and depth. The barrel further smooths things out and brings in an earthy aspect.

Moderate carbonation, tiny bit syrupy medium body.

Overall a very tasty fruited sour. Upland seems to have this type of thing down and never disappoint. Fresh, sweet and loaded with a depth of flavors.

2016 bottle. Poured from a 750mL bottle into a stemmed bulb.

Gusher. Pours a cloudy maroon body with a two finger light pink head that reduces to chunky foam leaving spotty lacing.

Aromas are raspberry and tart lactic. On the tongue it’s super sour, lactic acidity with raspberry notes on the follow through, citrus and oak faintly in there. Crisp easy drinker,medium light body with lots of carbonation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours beautiful ruby red with light pink head that dissipates after a few minutes no lacing.

Aroma - Tart, light touch of hay a ton of raspberries and a heavy earthy aroma.

Taste - Tons of tart juicy raspberries, it is just like drinking fresh squeezed raspberries not much else.

Feel - Light tart and pretty dry finish. Well carbonated.

Overall - A very well done sour again they are knocking these out of the park.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Look is a deep ruby red and pours with a bright pink head that settles quickly into a thin ring.

Aroma is all raspberry. Fresh raspberries and a boatload of them.

Taste is sweet raspberry jam up front and transitions to a nice moderate tart raspberry finish.

Feel is lively and crisp as carb is moderate to high. Finishes slightly dry.

Overall a great raspberry sour that comes across as uber fresh raspberries and lingers for awhile.

On draft at the Great Taste of the Midwest.

Appearance: poured a rich ruby color with the head being just a shade different. No haziness or sediment dispersed.

Smell: Bright raspberries hits me at the nose. It's tart and jammy. Not excessively funky or sour, the tartness is perfect.

Taste: More raspberries. It starts out sweet, jammy and tart. Then finishes very dry with subtle raspberries hanging around afterwards. The beer is perfectly balanced. It's sour but not to the point it's like drinking acid. The sourness really complements the raspberries without taking over. Very easy to drink without being overwhelmed by the acidity!

Mouthfeel: light bodied, some acidity in the mouth, carbonation is spot on.

Overall: I liked this beer enough that I made another trip for a second pour. I hope to drink this again, not sure if it's the same as in a bottle.

Nice! Tart raspberries straight off the vine, raspberry jam, wine notes. High level of acidity, but still packed with berry flavor. Slightly overcarbed, which is really my only complaint, but this was manageable with a couple swirls of the glass. This is a very nice fruited sour from Upland.

Pours a pink/ purple hazy juice color with a continually replenishing head. Aroma, grape juice, raspberry, little funky yeast, a little seltzer kind of smell. Taste- raspberry grape juice. A little acidity a little tang. Mouthfeel- a bit chewy and pretty highly carbonated. Overall, a pretty sour beer with some real nice fruit character. Not overly done in either respect. Did come off pretty juicy. Liked this.
