COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previously labeled Kiwi Lambic). There aren’t many kiwis growing in Indiana and they aren’t typically added to beer, but when we started making sour ales, our forward-thinking brewers wanted to do something different. They hand peel the fruit and add it whole to the base sour ale that had been fermenting for more than eight months in white oak barrels. The result is a fruited ale that is hazy and golden/straw in appearance upon pouring, with zesty amounts of carbonation. Fresh kiwi and tropical aromas combine with floral and wine-like notes, with rich kiwi flavors following in the taste, accompanied by refreshing tartness and a dry and tangy finish.

Bottle. Cloudy orange, offwhite ring. Lactic notes, bubblegum, candy, light vinegar. Medium light sparkly body. Soda, lime, kiwi notes, vinegar and citric acid. Very sour, probably good to marinate meat in.

Ritzn (1709) - GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017
Golden with little white head. Aroma is fizzy tablet and gooseberries, vinegar, some flour and lemon juice. Taste is incredibly sour (even for a sour) vinegar on steroids, maybe a slight kiwi note, but it is all overhauled by the vinegar to be honest. It is so sour and acidic, that I can’t really get it down. Might be a good beer but definitely too sour and undrinkable for me.

Koelschtrinker (21064) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017
Fruchtig säuerlicher Antrunk, sehr rund. Die Kiwi ist erkennbar auch wenn man sie ohne Ahnung kann herausschmeckt. Angenehme Essignoten, intensiv, spritzig. Langer Nachhall. Aggressiv zum Ende. 11/12/12/13/12/13

koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed this at a share at Corbet’s house on October 10. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a hazy pale straw yellow with a thin cap of white head that vanishes very quickly. The aroma is sour as fuck. This will make you cough on a deep inhale. Jesus. There is a light fruitiness to it and it’s very acetic. There is a light oak and a hint of some citrus fruits, but that kiwi is ridiculous. The flavor is lightly fruity again, and incredibly sour and puckering. There citric acid is off the charts here. I feel like the enamel is jumping right off of my teeth. The mouth feel is lighter, slightly syrupy, and crisp with a decent carbonation and a huge bracing sour on the finish. This is decent, but way over the top.

Sammy (12596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2016
John’s bottle. Big sour pucker up. Funk aroma. Great. I love it but a sipper.

3.8
Johnsense (1734) - - MAY 23, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Orange gold pour, smaller head. Huge sour funk aroma, kiwi. Mouth puckering sour, possibly the sourest I’ve had. Kiwi, funk, tart, balsamic vinegar. Medium body. If too much is never enough, hunt this one down (provided you have a few friends to share it with!)
