Well…there goes 7 hours.

We themed a tasting around Upland Brewing’s sour beers, but too many of us lacked Upland beer, so we just turned it into an enormous tasting.

Descender IPA on tap! I need a kegerator. BAD

IMAG2784

Moving on to Upright Engelberg Pils…best palette cleansing beer in the world. If you say otherwise, you’re an idiot.

IMAG2785

Upland Kiwi Lambic – Extremely sour, with not as much kiwi as I would imagine, but it was excellent. I haven’t been a fan of Upland too much in the past, so this is a promising start! A

IMAG2786

Upland Strawberry Lambic – Not as good as Strawberry Fields. That beer has ruined it for me. B

IMAG2787

Cascade Strawberry – Tasty, but worse than the Upland one. B

IMAG2788

Upland Persimmon Lambic – I love persimmons, and this is the only persimmon beer that I know of. It’s also fantastic. It has that super grassy persimmon aroma that you’d have to have experienced to know what I’m talking about. A/A+

IMAG2789

Cascade Blueberry – Still good, but falling off. B

IMAG2790

Upland Blueberry Lambic – Oh well, it was slightly worse than the Cascade beer. B

IMAG2798

Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise – Stupid good. Huge funk and fruit that only Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen can provide. A/A+

IMAG2797

Upland Raspberry Lambic – Best fruit character of the Upland beer so far. A

IMAG2799

Upland Cherry Lambic – Not crazy about this one. B-

IMAG2794

Upland Blackberry Lambic – Fucking awesome. People need to use blackberries more! A

IMAG2796

Upland Peach Lambic – Stupid man’s Fantasia. B-

Onwards to the palette cleansers!

IMAG2793

I had this beer very drunk in Florida. It’s much tastier now, but it’s still just a huge brown sugary beer. B

IMAG2817

Hardywood Coffee Thingy – Meh

IMAG2816

I love Heady Topper

IMAG2815

Alesmith Barrel Aged Decadence – Honestly, this beer was good, but everything at this point was just blended together. You can’t try so many beers without your taste buds going on strike.
