This poured out as a hazy orange color, the smell of this beer is like Peach Heaven. I'd never smelled a sour with such awesome fruit aromas on the nose. The taste was damn good too! Overall this is one of the better peach sours out there in my opinion. I'm hoping that every batch they do is this good, if not, then I'm very lucky to have had this one.

2016: Draft sample was like drinking peach cider vinegar.
Adjusitng current scores accordingly.

2008, 1st release. 4.42
A:4 S:4.5 T:4.5 M:4 D:4.5
Little to no noise from the cork, a soft wispy bit of skim floats across the surface, with a healthy ring of bubbles around the edge. Bright jewel tone clarity, glowing honey orange.

Farmy whiff of barnyard, acetic fuzzy peach skins, buttery oak.

Huge coconut and vanilla oddly enough, these oak characteristics bleed through the acetic sourness of the fruit. Discernable peach flesh and pits, dry aftertaste with hints of brett and oaky vanilla. Puckering initially, drying out soon after. Light bodied with minimal carbonation, the intensity of it's flavors make up for the lack of body, and traditional lambic is still (flat) in some cases. Extremely drinkable, especially quenching. This has really come around after a couple years, when fresh it resembled straight peach juice. Thanks Joe!

Edit: 2nd 2008 bottle opened was still completely flat and one-dimensional peach juice. Oh well... hopefully going forward Upland will have the carbonation issues taken care of.

2nd Edit: 2011 batch. Properly carbonated, fruity with tangy peach, moderately sour. Well done, an improvement to be sure.

I had this at the bottle share during Jackie O's bottle release this weekend. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours an orangish golden color with a layer of white head and some nice lacing.

Smell: Tart citrus notes with a mild peach smell. Funky haylike smell in there as well.

Taste: Very smooth and funky. Crisp with a nice, mild citrus peach flavor. Quite good and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: The body is light with a tingle of carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was more refreshing than the raspberry. Not quite as sour either. Really good.

A - Poured out a cloudy, orange color with gold highlights. It had a small, white head that was very bubbly. Not much retention and minimal lace.

S - Peaches with a mustiness - possibly the Bret.

T - Peaches with a tart sourness and a yeasty kick. It comes across a little musty, too with just a hint sweetness.

M - It was very crisp and popped. A light to medium bodied ale that finished dry.

D - This was really quite good. I'm really not a fan of peach, but I liked this.

Thanks to kbutler1 for another treat!

Pours 1/2 finger of white. Decent retention. Color is a hazed burnt yellow gold.

Aroma: Sour and acidic. Peach flavors are here, but not overly apparent. Lemon citrus. Oak and light spice.

Taste: A little more peach sweetness here. Fairly tart. Acidic flavors. A bit more oaky as well. Sour notes. Pretty solid.

Mouthfeel: Sour and tart. Clean though. Lighter bodied with a fine amount of carbonation. Ends clean with no apparent aftertaste.

Overall, this was a very easy drinking sour. Not overly peachy, but enjoyable. I'd recommend this one.

Late 2010 batch. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

Pours a hazy orange-peach color with a thin white head that dissipates pretty quickly into not much other than a thin collar around the edges. The nose is pretty impressive right off the bat, reminding me a lot of Flaming Fury. There's a strong peach presence behind quite a bit of a lactic character and some mild funk. The taste is at the same level. Not quite as much of a funky presence as I would ultimately like, but they held onto this one for long enough, as the sourness and peach are both at levels that are highly complementary of each other right now. Feel is nice with a good pucker factor and sour finish. Drinks pretty easily; I had no problems at all finishing my portion of the bottle.

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.
