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.

Characteristically sour base beer with a faint cherry flavor, mild oak presence, and a heavy bready finish with a lingering aftertaste.

This is a good beer to drink if you are just looking for something sour.

Tart cherry aroma, touch of funky sweetness.

Flavor is very sour initially, with a depth of cherry character that lingers and reminds me of pie filling. The sour flavor lacks depth a bit.

750ml bottle purchased at the Upland Tasting Room in Indianapolis.

A: Cloudy pink hue with a razor thin head and some bubbles in the body. No lace on my pour. Average appearance.

S: Bing cherries, flower petals, oak wood, strawberry jam, barnyard funk (horse blanket, wet hay), crab apple, and a mild yeastiness. Solid aromas that are consistent with the style.

T: Sour cherry, lemon juice, oak wood, moderate sweetness, and raspberry upfront; lightly drying finish with more sour cherry and woody flavours on the cough. Straightforward but satisfying palate.

M: Medium-bodied, soft carbonation, big sour tartness (bordering on puckering) transitions to an off-dry finish with lingering sour-woody afters.

O: A basic but enjoyable lambic that falls well short of greatness. Tasty and fun to try, but I probably wouldn't buy this again.
