The 2010 Upland Lambics are a bit of a disappointment compared to last year. An 8, a 6, and a 0.
The Persimmon is the best. A minor gush came up once the dalek-shaped cork was thumbed off. Pale yellow, almost greenish. Crisp refreshing fruit comes through and warmth brings out the earthy qualities. Not a sour lambic by any means but far less than a sweet one. Did seem quite salty.
The Raspberry is bright read, medium tart. Good amount of raspberry flavor. Yeasty and cloudy with glass-lining qualities. Worthy.
The Kiwi gushered big time. A smell of old socks and maybe fresh trimmed horse hooves. Completely undrinkable. Presumably this was an infected bottle. See some good reviews of better bottles.
We're laying the Dantillon down for a while as suggested on the bottle.
Big Woods Brewing's latest is Ian McCabe's Common Necessity. It joins Possum Trot Pale, Busted Knuckle Red and Tim's Big Woods Stout on tap right now.
