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.

madvike (3183) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle shared by CaseyK...thanks Casey! - Pours hazy light amber with next to no head. Tart as shit, with citrus peel and lots of acetic acid. No kiwi to be found. Taste is about the same--really tart and acetic, with kiwi showing itself just a bit on the finish. Citrusy, lemony, and really, really puckering. A bit thin, but okay for the style.

750ml split at Madison tasting. Hazy unfiltered light orange-tan. Thin head that rims the glass. Not sure if I get kiwi in the aroma, but it is certainly very sour. The kiwi really merges well with the sour tastes. Very light and efferverscent, with a wide array of sour tones. World Class, this is an awesome drinking experience. Really subtle fruit flavors, really intense lambic yeasts. Awesome!

Bottle @ home, courtesy of sefus12. Thanks again! After a long day of hard boozing- six breweries plus a moderate size tasting party- Armin and I decided to open this baby as a nightcap. Cloudy, golden-orange appearance with an effervescent, white head. Fairly potent aroma with notes of citrus fruits, lemon, barnyard, moderate funk, and tartness. As with the other Upland lambics that Iíve tasted, this baby is very intense. Incredibly sour, acidic, tart citrusy, moderately funky, vinegar, tart citrusy flavor with a moderate note of kiwi appearing near the finish for me. I didnít get a ton of kiwi- mostly just tart citrus fruits- but I did get some near the finish. As for the finish, this baby is a burner on the way down with a hugely sour, tart citrusy finish. Good carbonation. We actually didnít even finish the bottle which is a shame, though Iím not sure how much more I could have handled. Overall, I really enjoyed the beer and would love to get another bottle, but itís best split a bottle between three to four people in my opinion.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2011
BottleÖ Tower of Power Sour Hour 2011Ö This beer rocks!Ö Pours hazy yellow with a small, white head. The aroma is way acidic, funky and fruity Ė lemon juice, funky sock, kiwi and blue cheese. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is eye-squintingly sour and uber fruity. Mega-tart, kiwi, raspy finish that dries way out. Big-time thanks to Dstructo for popping the top on this baby and sharing it with the south Florida crew!

bluejacket74 (1770) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2011
750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottled on 12-6-10, Batch 134-08. Served in a flute, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about an inch carbonated white head that fizzled away quickly. No lacing, either. Aroma is mostly tart fruit, along with some funk, lemon peel and a bit of kiwi. The taste is nice and tart, the brew tastes like lemon peel, funk, tart apples, kiwi and oak. This is definitely a tart and acidic brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has high but soft carbonation and itís very easy to drink. I think this is a pretty good brew, and itís my favorite of the Upland Lambics Iíve tried so far. $19.79 a bottle and worth every penny!

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.
