A - Golden yellow body, superbly clear first pour, more cloudy during the second, bright throughout, with strong carbonation, very little head, no real lacing. Pretty.

S - Both fruit and fermented acidity. A hint of horse blanket and barn, grass and floral notes, all behind sharp acid.

T - Damn. Superb bright acidity in the open, a sweet tart type flavor, a middle that brings richer tart persimmon aspect, and the close closes with a mild bite.

M - Very sharp acidity, but not unpleasant for the style. And super clean - no sign of harsh chemical or muddiness.

O - This is a fine lambic from Upland, and it delivers with fruit and sourness. Delicious. So glad I got it.

Pours a light pale grain color with a fizzy head and more cloudy sediment come out as it pours. Aromas of sweet citrus, lemon, hints of grain and some lacto sour notes. Flavor has some sweet cutrus flavors upfron with a big sour bite and some grain in the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp ,light, and very sour.

Appearance - The beer was a brilliant orange color with a white head.

Smell - There is a sour orange presence that is fairly strong.

Taste - The initial impression is a rich, Earthy sour orange. The richness makes me think of tomato juice. Persimmon, as I am told, is a brutally sour orange. The sour sticks with a sense of oak in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - A sour with tomato juice like mouthfeel.

Overall - Besides Pawpaw, this is Upland's best work.
