COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Upland lambics are fermented by wild yeast and aged in oak casks for over a year, which creates a tart, complex beer. We then add whole kiwis, giving the beer enticing aromas and flavors. The beer is bottle conditioned, which adds a zesty and refreshing carbonation. Kiwi Lambic is the perfect drink to share with friends over a plate of good cheese and fresh fruit.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a semi turbid golden with a white head. Lots of wild funk in the nose. Medium bodied with an organic mouthfeel. Nice amount of sourness, with the kiwi being extremely subtle. This bottle is about 10 months old, so there is still some sugars left to counter the sourness nicely. Very acidic finish. A respectable American made sour. I would have loved a little more Kiwi myself.

Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a murky yellow-peach with a spare diminishing bubbly white. Aroma: Whoa Nellie! Super tart and sour with lots of fruit, some vinegar, white wine and wood. Huge tart and sour fruit flavour along with some vinegar and plenty of acidity. Medium bodied. Simply amazing!

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
[3896-20110819] 750mL bottle. Super sour Belgian yeast has a little underlying fruit. Hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Super sour yeast continues in the flavour with hints of kiwi-like fruit. Full body is all sour. Not sure I could have picked out the kiwi but I can see it now; phenomenal sour notes, nothing else quite like it. (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8-
Overheard: "Itís the colour of shampoo.

garthicus (2839) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 30, 2011
Thanks to Jerc & Mabel. Appearance: Vibrant yellow, murky, small white head. Aroma: Sour as hell, lots of kiwi, tangy, fruit skins. Flavour: Super sour, lovely and tart, kiwi, almost salty, long super sour finish. Delightful.

Pailhead (6142) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of sour lemon, lemon peel, funk, and faint oak. I donít get any kiwi in the nose. It pours a cloudy dull yellowish-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of kiwi. The finish has heavy sour lemon and a hint of oak. Light bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation.

750mL bottle, courtesy of yjb. Thanks, Yaniv!! Pours a murky orange color; mostly headless. Some kiwi, light jamminess, and modest tart citrus with a hollow, dusty core. Medium body; modest carbonation. Medium levels of acidity and tartness; some kiwi-like fruitiness at the core, along with some lemony sourness and chewy fruit; tasty but certainly muddled. Medium-length finish: tart, citrusy, with a balanced lingering fruitiness.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Cloudy golden with sediment. There is a dry kiwi taste with subtle wood and barnyard funk. It was pretty good.
