3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From old tasting notes. 750 ml bottle from one of the original batches. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color and topped by a small head of off white foam that fades quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass. The aroma shows notes of sour citrus, hints of kiwi, barnyard funk, and some lactic and acetic sourness. The flavor follows with more acetic sourness, funk, and tart kiwi and citrus fruit. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a funky kiwi finish. Solid fruited sour, but it seems from recent ratings from more recent bottles that this isn’t what it used to be.

Bottle from the Brewery
Slightly hazy straw color with a decent white head. Tart acidic citric and lactic with hints of earth and what I perceive as a hint of lime. Solid puckering, I’m not sure if I would pick out kiwi in this blind, but I enjoyed this nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather cloudy golden colour, white head. Sour aroma, vinegar, funky restrained brett. Very sour flavour, vinegar, umami notes. Rough. Sour finish, acetic acid, light kiwi. Think this would make a nice salad dressing, it has some dept and flavours going. Not really bad per se, but just too undrinkable sour. I was unable to finish a single glass, and one might say I’m quite used to sour flavours.

15/VIII/15 - 75cl bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a (2015-1066) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!
Pretty cloudy yellow beer, no head. Aroma: bit fruity, sour, US brett, meaty, like a pork roast with rosemary or something. Weirdest stuff in a long time. MF: lots of carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very sour, acidic, very aggressive, spicy and very herbal, rosemary or thyme or something, very weird. Aftertaste: maybe some kiwi, but that might be the power of suggestion. Very sour, acidic, pretty bad...

Really good smelling kiwi and peachy aroma. Poured with nice carbonation to bring out kiwi. Refreshing and kinda funky.

draft sampler at Fest of Ales. poured a clear yellow, no head no lacing just a pure funk, acidic fruity nose. it smelled like it was going to be overly sour and it was almost true. yes is was sour and yes it was funky and delicious. nice fruity flavor of the kiwi and i want to say maybe some apple in there. but you dont really want this warm changes the whole complexion. tart bitter acidic fruity flavors with little brett. solid offering from upland.
