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. 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.

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 cant really get it down. Might be a good beer but definitely too sour and undrinkable for me.

Koelschtrinker (19785) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 9, 2017
Fruchtig suerlicher 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

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Bottle, thanks Koelschtrinker - my 666th American beer! Hazy orange color with small white head. Aroma is sweetish kiwi skin, bubblegum, but with a harsh vinegar aroma in there. Taste is kiwi, bubblegum, vinegar. Dry finish. Bubblegum finish. Interesting.

(bottle) hazy deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of coconut and bretty funk, rather earthy, with some rather prominent acetic acid, white bread and a light hint of cinnamon. flavour is mostly coconut, lemon juice and white wine vinegar, very tart, with a touch of almonds and lobster brine. medium-bodied with average carbonation. too sour.

From notes. Enjoyed this at a share at Corbets 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 its 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.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 Orange gold pour, smaller head. Huge sour funk aroma, kiwi. Mouth puckering sour, possibly the sourest Ive 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!)

Bottle courtesy of linusb and jokestereo. Pours hazy orangish deep yellow with a small frothy offwhite head that doesntl leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with crackers, lemon juice, lime juice, kiwi fruits, hay, dry soil, apple cider vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is heavy sour and fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, tart, mouth-puckering and light bodied. Finish is heavy sour with citrus juice, apple cider vinegar, kiwi and minerals. One-note and too sour but somehow tasty nonetheless.
