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.

From 01/21/11 notes. Brought to a small tasting.

a - Pours a murky bright orange color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of very light peach, tart fruit, and oak.

t - Tastes of tart peach, oak, fruity malts, and tart fruit.

m - Light body and high carbonation.

d - Solid, but probably my least favorite of the 4 Uplands we opened. I thought all 4 were solid, but none of them blew me away.

The last in the series of Uplands as I do not believe I will be able to try the Kiwi. Still it was a decent, if not underwhelming run through. Served chill and poured into a snifter, the corked and capped 750ml bottle was consumed on 06/02/2009.



The pour was a lot like what I had seen in the rest of the series, lack luster. Pale peach color highlighted a light amber that had no visible carbonation or head what so ever. Lots of tart, acidic aroma coming off of it. Vinegar and what I guess to be the remnants of the peach flavor. As I lean in for a sip, there is a quick shot of fruit up front but it quickly fades leaving nothing in its wake but a mellowed, and very sour wild ale. Light on the carbonation, and easily drinkable, albeit a touch boring.



I have found this whole series to be underwhelming. The fruit flavor was absent in most all of them, blackberry aside, and the lack of carbonation and overall pour look could be attributed to all but one having a leaky cork. Not sure what is going on with these fully, but there are underwhelming to say the least.

Thank you very much to Mark for picking all these lambics up for me. Enjoyed on St. Patrick's Day evening.

A: Luckily this didn't explode like my bottle of Strawberry did, but it is highly carbonated and a cloudy orange color with a big white head.

S: Plenty of peach aroma to this. Like a lot of peach beers, a fairly pronounced bacterial aroma, but the amount of peach fruit and skin smell is quite nice. A moderate oak character along with a touch of grass.

T: A very solid peach flesh and skin flavor which stays on the tongue throughout the sip. Still sort of on the sweet side for a lambic, but there is a nice acidity to it. Just a touch of tannic fruit skin/pit and oak.

M: Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation.

O: On the sweet side, but the fresh peach flavor is really enjoyable. One of the better Upland lambic varieties.

2017 bomber! Tasted of super juicy peaches with some oak and funk tartness. Peaches all the way through, the oak, vanilla, coconut, Mingled mid way, finishing with some good funk anf tartness! I really digged this beer and hoping to get another bottle for the cellar!

One of many unexpected great sour brews drabmuh pulled out the other night. Thanks Matt!

The beer is a straw yellow hue, with tons of bubbles present. There is very little head to speak of (that's what she said).

The aroma is funky, wild peaches in a barrel on a farm. Lots of 'em. Yeah, that about covers it.

The taste? Funky, wild peaches in a barrel on a farm...seriously. Really tasty beer. One of Upland Brewing Company's better offerings. Fruit and funky sourness play very well together in this setting.

Nice, puckering finish with every sip. Acetic, but not harsh. Smack!

Overall, another delicious fruit lambic from Upland. I'd happily have this again anytime. Definitely recommended.

Thanks to BA Dunt for sharing this brew on the evening before DLD '11. Poured into a sniffer, this brew appears a hazed, light peach juice color with small chunks of peach purée floating through suspension. A fizzy white cap forms at the surface and fades only holding around the edges of the glass. Some faint spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The smell of this brew is funky with notes reminiscent of cheese mixed with a fruity sweetness that is only faintly reminiscent of peaches. A light touch of plastic-like funk rounds out the back of the nose.

The taste is sharply acidic and the fruited aspect of the peaches leans toward over ripened or rotten moreso than fresh and fruity. There is a light cardboard quality mixed in with the funky aspect blended with notes of stinky cheese and plastic.

This brew is sharp and tart, it has quite a salivation factor. It is easy drinking but the plastic and cardboard held me back from fully enjoying this offering. It is medium bodied and modestly to highly carbonated. It is worth giving a try if you get the opportunity but if you come across it for a rediculous price of $36 don't waste your time or money.

This bottle pours the muddiest or apricot oranges with no head at all. It began to foam really quickly but I poured all of it before it could billow out of the bottle. It smells like a very, very dry fruit infused sour. It also has a good amount of hay and funkiness. It tastes of dried apricot and of dried peach skins. It reminds me of dried fruit through and through. The bitterness is both efficient and appealing. The flavor is between apricot and peach, which is confusing. I do like it though. It drinks very crisp. The carbonation is actually perfect, especially considering it began to foam and then that was it. This beer was good but probably not $20 a bottle good. It's a good sour, which I had been told, but it wasn't spectacular. I realize it was a 400 or so bottle batch but it could've been better. I have another bottle so hopefully it gets better with time. Good beer though, not great.
