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.

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.

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.

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.

I think this was from the 10/12/10, Batch 42-90 release, as I don't believe there is a newer bottling? Served in a tulip while having dinner with the GTT Geek Girls.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to nothing. Murky peach body with some random bits of sediment present.

S - The aroma is predominantly lactic sourness, with some spicy oak and mild funkiness. Peach flavor is somewhat understated, but does eventually come around as the beer warms up. Still, this is one of the least fruit-forward Upland lambics - has a bit more in common with the Reserve in some ways.

T - The taste is quite similar to the aroma, but there's a mild seltzer water and dry oak character that detracts from the predominant and largely enjoyable peach yogurt flavor.

M - Medium body, juicy texture, with some moderate carbonation spritz. Dry and tannic texture, with suggestions of under-ripe peach flesh and oak.

D - Enjoyable for the most part, but I could have gone for more peach flavor. Really easy to drink, but a bit lacking in depth and complexity.

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.

They knocked it out of the park with this one. Truly great.

Beer is hazy and dark yellow with a wispy head. No lacing, nice carbonation.

Aroma is super sour, citric and acetic with nice peach notes.

Beer is thin and heavily carbonated on the palate. I really enjoy this beer a lot. It is acetic and lactic, mildly citric or succinic, nice peach flavor, tartness at the back, I really love this beer. I want more more more.
