Bloomington, IN — Upland Brewing Co. announces today that they will release Two of Tarts, a tropical gose with mango and passion fruit, in late August. It will be on draught in bars throughout their distribution area as well as at Upland brewpubs and tap rooms as part of the Side Trail Series.
“Two of Tarts is an exploration into a spectrum of tartness that we don’t normally touch on with our core or sour beers,” said Matt Wisley, innovation lead at Upland Brewing Co. “While beers produced with this method are considerably more acidic than our standard beers, they shouldn’t necessarily be compared to our wood-aged sours that are much more assertive and complex. Beers like Two of Tarts are meant to be crisp and refreshing with a clean base to accentuate flavors of delicious ingredients like passion fruit and mango.”
“This beer is intended to broaden our range of tart and fruit flavors. We always push ourselves to develop new, unique, and interesting flavor profiles with our Side Trail beers, and this is a great example,” said Pete Batule, VP of Brewing Operations.
Artwork for Two of Tarts was created by Bloomington, Indiana, tattoo artist Jereme Galloway of Time and Tide Tattoo.
Beer Description: Two of Tarts pours bright golden orange with a glowing translucent haze. The aroma is a burst of vibrant passion fruit and succulent mango with notes of lemon. The unmistakably tropical flavor of passion fruit is complemented by mango, citrus, and the crisp fruity contributions of the lactic fermentation. Effervescent carbonation supports a clean, refreshing acidity that is rounded out by a delicate hint of salt. The finish is dry and crisp, leaving a pleasantly clean citrus impression on the palate.
ABV: 4.5% IBU: 5
About the Brewery
The name Upland derives from the term geologists gave to the hilly region surrounding Bloomington, Indiana, which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The adversity of the geography bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. The brewery’s mission of “making remarkable beers in remarkable ways” honors the spirit of these people and this place. Upland brews over 50 different styles of beer annually.
