Light haze on this gold beer, good size pale cream colour head. Palate is light and smooth, mild fine carbonation. Light sweetish malts carrying mild thin cream. Touch of sweet strawberry adds a general ’strawberries and cream’ vibe. Generic fruits. Very mild pinch of spice. Light semi dry finish. Drinkable but really wants something else to bring it alive,

Bomber. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and aroma of spices and kiwi. Taste is full of kiwi, strawberry and fruity flavors with spices into the sweet finish. Very sweet and fruity

Pours a hazy orange color with a short cream colored head. Nose is sweet and fruity, with a ’ berry ’ aroma. Taste is fruity and sweet with some tartness. Finishes on the he same tasting notes with a long tart finish. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber pours a hazy golden straw color with tight white head and good lacing. Aroma is that of witbier: orange peel, coniander, straw, bananas plus kiwi - I didn’t detect the strawberries at first. Taste is sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky, almost creamy mouthfeel. My bottle (Batch 465/466) calls itself an ’imperial Wit Beer with kiwis and strawberries" and 9.0 % ABV. Alcohol is very well hidden. This is another winner from Pipeworks.

bytemesis (4141) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy golden, small white head, creamy, good lacing. Aroma is wheat, kiwi, yeast, strawberry. Flavor is the same, ready to pull out both fruits, which is unusual for me.light sweet, no real bitterness. Light body, high carbonation, but not offputting. I enjoyed this one, and i think my wife will too.

jmagnus87 (2857) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear dark orange with minimal head. Smells like kiwi and strawberry cream instant oatmeal with a hint of spices. Taste is quite tart. Kiwi, strawberry, lime and other tart citrus fruits. Light bodied with a thin and slightly sticky texture. Lively, almost fizzy carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Another homerun from Pipeworks.

750 ml bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch # 172 A: Pours a hazy golden color with with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some mild splotches of lace down the glass. S: Mild yeasty sweetness with some peppery notes, a little bread crumb and some very mild fruity notes. I’m not picking up much of the Kiwi or Strawberry. T: Light kiwi tartness. Some seedy strawberry jam on the finish. Yeast sweetness as well. Mild peppery notes. Minimal malty crackers. M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Soft sweetness on the finish. O: The flavors were all a bit understated and I actually preferred the base wit by itself. The tartness from the kiwi was a nice touch, though. If it was a bit more forward I might have enjoyed this more. Serving type: bottle 07-31-2013

Hazy yellow, white head. Nose is kiwi, strawberry, wheat, and refreshing. Easy palate, fruit, tart, lightly acidic, easy finish.

drdisque (619) - Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2013
from a bomber. Pours cloudy yellow. Flavor is grassy and ever so slightly bitter and citric. Not getting much fruit here. Tart brief finish. Different than I expected, much more tart and Belgian tasting and much less fruity than I expected. Solid brew.

vyvvy (4542) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Sampled at Perennial’s Midwest Belgian Beer Festival - Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma is pretty mild, but seems to have pale-ish malt and hints of kiwi. It has a light clean body with mild carbonation. The taste has pale malt, kiwi, strawberry and spice. The finish is fruity with a bit of caramel. Good.
