wedgie9 (1860) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottled on 12/6/10
Taste on 12/26/11 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle shared at a tasting. Pours pale orange with an average white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sour kiwi (skin more than flesh) fruit leather with light malt and a pleasant white wine vinegar aroma. The flavor is the same, more kiwi skin than flesh, light malt, sour lemon and vinegar, and an added touch of vanilla. The body is medium and sticky tannic with lively carbonation and a long sour kiwi skin and light vanilla finish.

JBPortland (734) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 7, 2014
750ml bottle of the 2013 vintage pours hazy pale yellow orange with tiny fizzy head that disappears fast. Nose is super sour acidic funk, little bits of kiwi and fruit, vinegar. Taste is over the top acidic sour burn, some decent fruity kiwi notes in the finish but they are buried under oppresive acidity. Just too much.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with a small white head. Light, delicate kiwi aroma. Flavour is tart, peppery kiwi.... Sweet and malty. Very nice.

bytemesis (3076) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to Clownisseur. Pours hazy butterscotch, minimal head, no lacing. Aroma is quite funky, Cantillon-like, oak, lemon. Flavor is extremely tart, lightly funky, lemon and a bit of fruit in the body. Lots of vinegar notes, finishing with a bit of blue cheese. Light body, little carbonation. Not really my thing.

barn0216 (397) - California, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Slightly hazy golden color. Sour cheese, vinegar and sweet citrus aroma. Very sharp, tart flavor, citrus acidity, lactic finish. Reminds me of those warheads candies: very sharp, acidic, sour flavor. Aside from a "fruitiness", kiwi is not distinguishable.

djd07 (3468) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is strong funk, kiwi, lactic acid. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart kiwi, acidic, citrus, and sour finish. Good but wish more kiwi flavor.

RussianDragon (428) - - MAY 30, 2014
750 ml bottle. The beer pours a hazy translucent golden yellow color with quickly fading head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is overpowering: bright lambic funkiness and fruit sweetness. Flavor is predominantly sour kiwi, as well as other tropical fruits. Carbonation is champagne like with small active bubbles on the palate. Delicious. From notes 11/17/2011.

Bottle. Light kiwi and lactic malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet-tart kiwi/apple and malt flavor. Light white pepper finish. Nice - kiwi flavor subtle.

Hazy yellow pour, white head, floating seeds. Nose is huge sourness, some acetone. Taste is just mouth-puckering warhead sour, some kiwi but mostly just an overpowering sour punch. Very one-dimensional but still really enjoyable if you like something incredibly sour. Up there with some Hanssens stuff as the most enamel ripping sour bomb I’ve had.

Experiment_Ale (988) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2014
At Stephen’s place during GABF 2013. The dude smokes a lot of pot, why else would he live in CO. Aroma is big acidic sour, fruit juice, mild vinegar. Taste is huge kiwi, some orange, big citrus, acidic. Has an interesting funky finish.

queenholly (2890) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
2013 bottle. Tart lactic, oak, and vanilla aroma. Cloudy dark straw gold, no head, flocculation. Sour lactic and acetic balanced by a light sweetness, funky barnyard, oak, and salty flavor. Medium body, flat carbonation. No discernable kiwi flavor, just lots of sour.
