Pours a beautiful reddish color with a soft white fizzy head which denotes the high carbonation in the this beer. Nice light funk smell with berry notes. Aggressively sour, mouth puckering sour. Highly carbonated with a tartness and soft berry note finish. Slightly unbalanced with the tartness and carbonation. The raspberry does not come out as strong as other fruits but all told still flavorful with the fruit notes coming out slightly at the finish.

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

A: Pours a stunning bright pink/red color with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Fresh pureed raspberries with just a little funk to it.

T: Cringe-worthy sour up front, but then after the tart finish, soft raspberry/blackberry/fruit puree notes come though in the aftertaste.

M: Probably as sour as they come. And it doesn't let up either.

O: So this is my 2nd lambic from Upland, first being Strawberry. Both were extremely sour. Though this one has higher ratings, I think I prefer Strawberry since the flavors actually came through a bit better. You could actually tell it was strawberry. Here, I get like a berry mix, with some blackberry and other small seed fruits. Upland lambics are good, but not great. This one's a little unbalanced and aggressively sour. It is a beautiful looking beer though, and nice to sip on on a warm summer day. Just can't drink more than a small pour.

Recommendation: Worth seeking out if you've never had an Upland sour before, but if you've had one of the fruited lambics already, that's probably enough. No need to try the whole set.
