Thanks to FooFaa for sharing a growler of this on 10/3/10. A bit of info from the Trinity website: "Brettanomyces Kiwi Wit... Brewed with the base malt structure of a Belgian Wit, but when we add the Berliner Weiss microbesthis beer quickly gets funky. We ferment this treat with a special and rare German strain of the wild yeast Brettanomyces. This special yeast creates notes of barnyard, wet wool, and even sweaty goat! After fermentation the batch is aged on a grip of fresh kiwi fruit, again imparting an even higher level of tartness than expected."

A - Dispensed from the growler as a flat-looking, pale urine-tinted yellow with no carbonation, head or lacing to report. M'wah.

S - Classic Witbier base with clove, banana, wheaty malt and sweet bubblegum notes. Actually, reminds me more of a Hefe. There is also a hint of tartness from the Brett. Fruity? Not really detecting the kiwi character. No sweaty goats either.

T - This brew is definitely a Witbier at its core. Flavor doesn't really incorporate much tartness or sourness, although more juicy fruitiness comes out in the flavor than the aroma. However, I get a sense of more banana than kiwi. The Belgian yeast character imparts spicy clove notes, but not too much. Finishes with a bready, grainy malt character that is representative of the Witbier style.

M - Pretty thin bodied and softly carbonated, surprisingly. While there is a hint of tartness on the palate in the finish, it ultimately ends up on the sweet side of the spectrum.

D - I think this one suffered from growler aging, because FooFaa said this was awesome on tap (must have been for him to send a growler back to PA). I didn't get much of a Brett or kiwi character here, unfortunately. I made for a pleasant (albeit undercarbonated) Witbier, though.
