Kiwi Rising pours a hazy orange/yellow (light amber?) with a moderate creamy head on top. The foam fades away slowly leaving behind a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is loaded with grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit notes (mango) and some pine.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is crisp on the palate, somewhat dry with moderate carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, lots of grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit (mango, pineapple) and pine. Towards the end there's some malty sweetness trying to balance out all the hops. It finishes bitter with lingering citrus and tropical notes when gone.

This is a delicious beer with a great aroma. It reminds me a lot of Hill Farmstead Edward, but with a thinner body. I hope this becomes a more than seasonal brew.

A - Strong haze on a bright apricot wheat body. Pure white, fine bubbled head has nice retention and awesome lace.

S - Light nose, but what's there is really nice. Lemon pith, parsley, white bread, and old wood tables.

T - Bread crust forward flavor profile with lemon zest and light parsley highlights. Touch of tangerine in the center.

M - Super smooth, slightly slick, medium frame.

O - Nice, smooth, well integrated, and easy drinking. Not sure if it's quite top 250 material though.
