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 by Eddy. Pours hazy golden color with white head. Sour, vinegar, kiwi, wood aromas. Holy crap this is sour as hell. Tastes good, but can only handle a few ounces at a time. Medium body with average carbonation.

Thanks shrubber85 for this. Pours a muddy dull golden with sediment and no head. Aromas are sharp vinegar, funk, lemon, and kiwi. Tastes like out smells. White wine, vinegar, under ripe kiwis, lemon, funk. Nice fizzy palate. Really sour and refreshing. Very nice. Re-rate: as it warmed.. The sour lactic acid took over everything. Insane sour. Like drinking vinegar. Had to pour it out.

Blairgus (3033) - California, USA - FEB 7, 2015
7 Feb 2015, bottle. light yellow and a tad dirty. nose is tart, funky, some kiwi hints (but likely from persuasion). thin body and moderately fizzy. wow. so tart! very dry and sets my teeth on edge. i donít think iíd say kiwi if i didnít know. itís certainly a tart fruit but not citrus. like a very tart kiwi that isnít sweet at all. some balsamic vinaigrette or apple cider vinegar. vinegar is more prominent the more you drink. not as much a fan as i drink more. (and i only had 4 oz)

Pours a very faint yellow gold with a moderate white top. Aroma is intense kiwi tartness and vinegar. Taste is off the charts pucker power, intense is a weak word, enamel melting "zest". Sour yes, enjoyable, debatable.

pushkinwow (2214) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Pale straw with no head. Good lord this was vile...paint thinner, vinegar, mouth puckering acidity as it strips the enamel off your teeth, some kiwi skins and juice through the rest of the noise. Actually tasted much better then it smelt, although a few ounces was more then enough. This is the perfect example of how everyone has different tastes...around the table some people poured this out and some people it was good - very good.

Boutip (5060) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color lambic with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of paint thinner is pretty intense with quite a bit of acidic notes and sour notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by paint thinner notes with intense sour notes and quite a bit of acidic notes. Kiwi is quite hard to distinguish. Body is light with good carbonation. The paint thinner notes were a big turn-off for me.

Bottle. Sunset-orange with soft haze. Large white bubbles fizzle away quickly. Aroma is intensely funky -- crisp barnyard, hay, unripe pear, sweet kiwi, a splash of white vinegar. More kiwi appears in the flavor, blending with an almost cheesy funk and apple vinegar. Tartness is moderate and lingers for a good long while. The sour critters get in the way of the fruit a bit, and the cheesiness is somewhat distracting. Tasty enough to have a small glass, but not much more.

rejtable (1671) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours cloudy straw with no head or lacing. Nose is almost lemon pledge. Flavours of lemon, lots of vingar with lots of sour tart. Really mouth puckering. Taste big sour and light sweetness. Mouth was mouth puckering sour.

Lubiere (10840) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
A hazed golden murky lambic with no head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with kiwi juice and light lactic notes, light solvent, nice. In mouth, a tart and puckering lambic with kiwi pulp, Epsom salts, light berries, very nice. Bottle at 2014 Ottawa Xmas gathering.
