750ml bottle shared at the Malt House while waiting for Great Taste tickets.

Darker pink-reddish body, half finger pink head, not much retention, no lacing. Smells of dank raspberries, very fruit forward with a bit of oak. Strong lactic acid presence; you know it's going to be very sour. No funk. Flavour is actually pleasant, tons of raspberry flavour, although this is partially offset by a large amount of lactic sourness that you continue to be aware of a hour later. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not thin, plenty of flavour, good carbonation, but it's very acidic and difficult to drink in any large quantity. This beer is meant to be shared. Overall, it's not terrible and has a lot of fruit flavour, but your bowels will still thank you for being conservative with your pours of this beer.

Pours a hazy pink with spritzy carbonation. Nose features the signature Upland wild profile which presents a TON of acid and a little bit of fruit to support it. The rapsberry aroma is present, but is largely overshadowed by lactobacillus, oak, and funk. The taste is no different with heavy acetic acid up front which sends sour shockwaves throughout the palate. This is one of those sours I can really feel at the very back of my tongue. The fruit is mellow but present. Oak and grain come through on the finish. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated which works with the tartness. Overall, somewhat one dimensional but enjoyable for sure.

10/9/13 bottle.

Pours a rice rich red with so many rooby tonez. Thin, pale pink head that bails fast. Some chunks floating around despite my expert pour. Very sour raspberries on the nose with a bit of wood and musty funk.

Pretty over the top sour, but not as bad as the cherry I had the other day. Good raspberry taste is there with a bit of wood and a touch of dry funk.

A bit too sour for me, but enjoyable in a small amount.
