Appearance - The beer poured a wood stain brown color with white bubbles.

Smell - Dry sour notes topped the glass.

Taste -Initially, the beer is super tart and acidic, but fades pretty quickly. The oakiness comes in more toward the back.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation brushes away this sweetness pretty quickly.

Overall - I am not sure what Upland was going for here. It did not leave much of an impression though.
