Upland Peach Lambic
Bottle acquired from a beer contest, 2010 vintage. Opened on 4/6/2012. Poured into two wine glasses. Gushed all over like I expected after reading reviews of upland Lambics.
A: Pours an orange color with a large head that dissipates almost immediately. Cloudy with bits of stuff floating.
S: Sour, lots of oak and a very little bit of lemon zest. Some minor peach scents.
T: Very sour, I can taste the musty oak and some minor peach (this is obviously not syrup).
M: Lots of carbonation. Feels more like Champaign than beer. Some peach on the end of the mouthful.
O: Not all that complex, but good for what it is. It’s a nice sour, carbonated limbic.

B+ to A- range

Tried this courtesy of ATLbeerDog - thanks!

Pours a peach color that's got some amber hues in the bottom and lightens up toward the top of the glass - absolutely no head or lacing.

Smells of unripened fruits - both sweet and tart, with a good deal of barnyard funk.

Tastes different than it smells. The barnyard funk is hardly present, instead the fruit flavors take over. Mostly peaches, but with hints of pears, they start out sweet, then move slightly to the tart side, then back to the sweet side to linger in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is interesting - it's very close to being flat, but I noticed a few bubbles popping out here and there.

Drinkability is good. The flavors are interesting, but I could definitely see this getting more complex with some age on it.

Overall this was a good beer, but I think it has the potential to be a lot better after the sweetness mellows out and the funk has some time to grow.

Pours a cloudy orange with no head at all. The aroma is acrid and vinegar-like. The taste is much more subtly sour than I expected. The lambic is still wine-like and peach flavored, but overall way better than I expected. I'm very curious what hte abv is because it's no tposted, but I would get this again if I could ever find it.

Thanks to Kyle for opening this one up! 2010 vintage.

A: Cork popped with a bit of a gush. Poured a hazy light orange/peach color. Small white fizzy head on top.

S: Nice tartness right away with some peaches and white grapes. The funk is light and in the background to the lactic tartness and peachy aroma.

T: Nice tart/sourness with the fruit underneath. Mostly peach with some faint apricot/stone fruit/lemon underneath, but the peach dominates.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.

O: For its age, has held up very nicely. Lots of peach still in it, though I imagine some of it has faded. Bet it is quite good fresh, not that it isn't now, just a different beast.

This is an incredible beer with the smell and flavor to leave you searching for more.

Rip open a peach and stick your nose in it, then you will have an idea of how it smells. So pure, so clean. I imagine it is the aroma that they try to capture but fail in all of those peach air fresheners.

The flavor is easily on of the best fruited beers that I have ever had. Nothing tastes artificial and the carbonation is perfect for drinking.

This is a great beer.

Thanks to TPatuto (Tom) for this one. Shared with capra12 and schen9303 at an Upland tasting. Poured from a corked and caged bottle (batch 42-90, bottled 10/12/10) into a Darkness snifter. Paired with the fruit.

Pours a .25 finger white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Beer is a slightly clear peach-orange. The clearest of the bunch of Upland lambics. Lacing is stringy and patchy with no cling.

Nose is white peaches, plastic, and Brett. Very clean and pure and nicely aromatic. Simple but very appetizing.

Opens peach, slightly spicy yeast. Tart. Brett, hay, and slightly tart and sweet peaches towards the end. Peach sugars at the finish with just a bit of tartness in the aftertaste along with a signature bit of plastic. Very tasty and almost exactly like the fruit.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and slightly grainy in the mouth. Oily going down. Clean finish with very little aftertaste. Nice.

This was the non-consensus favorite of all the Upland lambics (I personally preferred the Persimmon). The fruit comes through beautifully and the clean, tart and sweet flavor of the peach works perfectly to create a subtle, yet complex, quenching, and enjoyable lambic.
