Wow. This is by far the most sour thing I have ever drank before. So sour that I didn't get much of the kiwi.

Appearance - The beer was golden yellow in color with apparent carbonation.

Smell - The beer smell like a fairly run of the mill sour.

Taste - This is a very potent sour. The sour masks most of the kiwi notes with an almost syrupy texture. The sourness never really fades until a dry aftertaste becomes apparent.

Mouthfeel - For a sour, this seems unusually thick.

Overall - This sour is more sour than average, but is very enjoyable.

A-Cloudy yellow orange, not much carbonation or head.

S-Funk, mild kiwi, oh and more funk.

T-One of the most sour beers I've ever had. Some Kiwi but really acidic and funky.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation, tad watery.

O-Just too sour. And that is something I never thought I would say.

This beer is harshly tart, like most other Uplands, and painfully so. The kiwi flavor peeks its way through, but in general, the tart quality is overwhelming and wholly cringe and pain worthy.

Over the top acidity. Tasted some of the kiwi fruit but this is an acid enamel pealing bomb. Not sure why Upland bottled and sold this.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2014 bottle.

Appearance - Hazy. Bright orange. Almost no head. A tiny collar.

Smell - Acidic. Whoa. Fruity. Lots of oak and some vanilla.

Taste - Really sour. Strong kiwi. Gets extremely sour very quickly. Tropical fruit sourness, like passionfruit. Woody, but that is also overwhelmed.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Silly sourness.

Overall - If you like excessively sour beers, you'll like this. I get the kiwi up front, but then it's all sourness.

Brutally sour. One dimensional. Much better options out there.
