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.

Bottle shared at pre-GTMW 2011 tasting, pours a cloudy with a thin head, the aroma is pretty funky with a good amount of melon and fruit on the nose, the flavor is actualy pretty tart and sour on the front end with a fruity finish, mmmm, pretty nice, thanks to TheAlum for sharing.

hazy dried apricot orange color. White head. Sharp lactic aroma, cheesy, wet toothpick. Flavor is the sourest upland Iíve had. Tropical fruit notes, almost a mango flavor. Lactic sourness. Awesome.

8/12/11. 750 shared pre-GTMW. Mute fruity aroma with a touch of funk. Big tart flavor with oak, vanilla, and nice fruitiness.

Bottle shared with mattyb83. Pours a solid orange with a head that retained its frothiness with a fair amount of floaties in the glass. Notes on the aroma of ripe kiwi skin, pineapple, and funk. This is one hell of a mouth puckering beer. Huge amounts of acidity work wonderfully with the kiwis. Big, sweet, ripe kiwis, tad of orange, some lemon zest, and a whole lot of tartness. Pretty nice. Long tart finish flows across the palate beginning with high acidity and ending with loads of sweet kiwi. A fine lambic, just could have had a better appearance without as many floaties.

Bottle shared with mattyb83, by the way you are the man, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head, lots of floaties pieces of kiwi, oh yeah thatís a kiwi seed. Aroma has a huge funk presence, tart with apple and kiwi. Holy pucker batman! Very sour and tart with some sweetness in there, sour apples, kiwi, lemon, brett, definitely taste the oak.

Bottle via a trade with strangebrew321 on BA. Damn that cork is snug. Thing broke in half when I tried to open the bottle, and thus forced me to resort to using a corkscrew to open this bottle. Opened with a nice pop, but absolutely no gush to this bottle. Floaties galore in this beer (Kiwi residuals maybe?). Murky orange color with a small white head. Definitely has a lambic like aroma. Slightly sweet fruitiness that is almost like oranges, some lemon, and a good amount of funk in there. Tart flavor with a slight kiwi sweetness. Fairly heavily acidic, never overpowering, but something that lingers to make your mouth pucker more with every sip. The floaties detract from the overall texture of the beer. I may run the others through a cheesecloth to get rid of any little undesirable bits. Pretty fucking good, though, but a bit one-dimensional in the flavor for me.

Crushed at GABF í10. Wasnít sure what to expect from a kiwi lambic, but it was Upland so I wasnít too worried. Sweet and sour, kinda funky, with a definitely distinct kiwi aroma and flavor. Fantastic.

Served from a 750 mL bottle with a big thanks to Andy. The appearance is a cloudy golden with a slight green undertone and some pulp sediment.. The flavors and aromas are a bitter sour kiwi thing going on. Some sweet and sour candies flavors as well as as some barnyards. The mouth is chalky with a good amount of sediment and some dissolving candy feel. Really nicely done/

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Batch 1!!! Shared by Spycow, served in a tulip...Pours light golden brown with very little carbonation. For some reason I was hoping/thinking it was going to have at least a little green so Iím a little disappointed...Lighter aroma giving off only a tiny bit of funk. The kiwi comes through pretty nicely which is very surprsing. The kiwi is sweet and acidic but comes off distinctly on the end more as coconut...Taste shows off the kiwi more as coconut as well, its a good and unique flavor that Iíve yet to have yet. Missing out on the sour component that makes it a lambic though. An easy to drink unique sour worth trying. I tasted the rareness in batch 1 but Iím looking forward to tasting the improvement in batch 2. Batch 3 reflects the score as again Upland has improved upon their lastest batch, tastes like a sour green apple jolly rancher. Unreal.

(Draught at GABF) cloudy gold, lasting white bubbles. Nose of tart tangerine, kiwi, quite funky. Taste is very tart, kiwi and pulp, cranberry, lactic, very carbonated and awesome. Perfect tartness, long duration, dry and just delicious. Loved it!
