Pour is hazy golden with minimal hed and little to no lacing. Aroma is very fruity, acidity. A but of funk. Taste is fruity (pears, green apples) big acetic presence, a tad vinous. Low body and lively carbonation. Overall, too acetic for me, it could have been really good but a bit too much.

Bottle. Hazy gold pour, no head. Lactic, almost gastric acid aroma, fruity aroma, canít identify kiwi per se. Taste is very sour, something more closely resembling kiwi is perceptible, but overall pretty sour; acetic and a tad lactic. Overall drinkability suffers from this excess sourness, but the beer in itself isnít bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Hoppypocket, thanks! Unclear straw/golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits (couldnít tell itís kiwi though), sour fruits, acetic notes and light sweetness. Taste is moderately to heavily sour and loaded of tropical fruits (this time, kiwi is more recognizable), acetic presence, wood and light sweetness. Low carbonation. Dry/bone dry mouthfeel. Mouth puckering. Medium body. These Upland Sours seems to become really acetic after a couple of years. This one was more complex than the Persimmon we had later that night, but still a tad hard to drink because of the sourness level. Kiwi wasnít easy to get, but it was fruity all along. Enjoyable.

Batch 1 (1 of the 44!). Poured a hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Citrus and fruity - Iím guessing the Kiwi (but I donít eat or am around kiwis that much!). Tart fruity finish.

Not picking up a ton of kiwi, but this is a very acidic lambic. Not as glorious as as the 3 Fontein Framboos, but a good beer.
