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.
