Thanks to brentlepping for bringing this one. This started off a mega bottle share.

A. Light straw color, not hazy, but not translucent either. Very coarse bubble initial head that quickly dissipates to no rim or film. Low effervescence.

S. Wow, the initial smell clinches my jaw, this is going to be sour. The sour yeast and bugs really jump out. This is followed by a moderate neutral oak component and a powerful fruit component, dominated by peach, but others such as persimmon and paw paw. A very southern USA fruit spectrum.

T. This is where I realize the nose was just the tip of the ice berg. Damn this is sour, very sour. A strong sour yeast component with a Nehi peach flavor, with moderate oak - all in a delicious way. This sour works well. This has great fruit flavor and remains dry, not sweet at all.

M. Jaw clinching, smooth, dry, very low carb, light body but not watery.

O. This was very impressive. I heard Upland had some good sours, but this certainly proved that reputation. This may have been the most sour beer I have ever tasted. I will search this out again and I will look into the release to make a trip to Hoosier'ville.

Latest batch release, thanks to Mike I believe...Pours a light hazy peach, good looking. Lots of head at first, falls very quickly though...The aroma is fantastic, sweet peaches mixed with the perfect amount of tartness...The taste is more of the same, sweet yet tart peaches, could use a tad more tartness though. Some sugar notes with a little oak. So good, and easily crushable...The feel is really nice, as its got a nice puckering sensation.

Another stellar Upland. Clearly shows the newest batch is on POINT. You gotta get you some!

Bottle from February of 2015.
This beer is drinking amazingly right now. The nose is just off the charts. Super fresh funky peaches. Taste follows suit.
I understand a lot of the super cool beer heads have written off Upland as "old hat", but this beer stands up to many of the new kids on the block.

Appearance - The lambic was a handsome golden color with a modest layer of bubbles crowning the glass.

Smell - It is easy to tell this is a peach lambic. The peaches, largely sour, are intense in the aroma.

Taste - Sour Peaches. I really can't identify much beyond the very sour peaches. That is not a bad thing.

Mouthfeel - The sour clings to the tongue and sides of the mouth. There is a stickiness about the mouthfeel.

Overall - So far, this might be my favorite sour from Upland.

A: Orange hazy look, was looking for some pinker notes, with a small ring of head and some bubbly lacing that falls fast.

S: A standard funky, bright fruit smell typical of the style with some nice tartness and some peach flavor on top to complete the aroma. Edit 2014: Big peach flavor! Like sniffing a ripe peach! Like the pit itself from a peach.

T: Nice tartness in the flavor with nice bright fruit and peach flavor that balance the sour. tropical fruit notes and nice subdued sweetness sound it out. Edit 2014: HuGE peach! Really sour in a great way with big vanilla oak!

M: Very smooth and great carbonation. Super sour in a bracing way!

D: really great! Damn what a fine fruit lambic.
