Huge white head over a dark red, clear body. Nose is mostly acidity, lactic and with mild funk. Flavor is strong cherry, heavy acidity, with a touch of wildness. Bright and clean close. One of their better sours. A pleasure.

Poured from a pint growler into a Petrus fluted goblet (I have no idea what you call this shape, but it seems well-suited to sours). The pour is hazy and light red in color with little carbonation. Lots of sour notes on the nose. I get strong white wine, vinegar, cherry aromas. Nothing funky or foul, just tart fruit and wine.

Light body and extremely sour, but still very drinkable. Up front I get white wine, lemon rind, and apple. Cherries hit me towards the back of the palate and linger on the finish along with lemon and a hint of apple cider.

I don't buy a lot of sours anymore, but I couldn't pass this one up when I saw it on the growler station. I've tried a couple of Upland's sours at bottle shares, but never reviewed one. Like the others I have tried, I would not recommend this one to a sour newbie.

Pours a very loud, effervescent head that quickly dissipates. Sour, muted aroma. Pink-ruby color. Starts with a very, very sour front; notes of cherry underneath. There is a touch of maltiness behind everything, and the cherry pairs well with this.

Overall, this is pretty good. It's got a nice, subtle cherry flavor that pairs well with the maltiness. Not as fruity as I like, but still very good.

Pours a beautiful hazy pink color with a fizzy white head. Aromas of pie cherries and loads of acidic tart aromas with more cherry skin in the finish. Flavored of fresh pie cherry and a big acidic sour flavor typical to upland but not as acidic as the kiwi. Light to medium bodied with high acidity and a crisp finish.
