750 ml bottle, with handwritten Batch #173 written on the label. Finally decided to pick this one up after looking at it for quite a while.
Poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a bright golden colored body with four plus big fizzy fingers of off-white head that audibly sizzles it's way out of existence entirely. Some yeast sediment visible in the glass. Looks very nice. Pours a darker murkier color as the bottle goes on.
S - The smell is very nice - some funky Belgian yeast presence, vinous grapey wine-like character, and some fruitiness, but I would probably never guess strawberries or kiwis without knowing.
T - Taste follows the nose nicely, but better. Tart / sour fruity character imparted from the strawberry and kiwi. Definitely tastes like more of a sour to me at this point than it does a Belgian wit, but it's delicious nonetheless. Becomes much more yeasty tasting as the bottle goes on.
M - Feel is crisp, lightly dry, and mildly tart. Medium light bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, another wonderful beer from Pipeworks. Glad I finally picked this one up, and I look forward to trying their other variations on the wit beer.
Pipeworks Paradisiac ---4/5.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a murky woody yellow body with a big snow white head that sticks to the glass with each sip. This beer is a bit to murky to see much carbonation.
S- The yeasty dried strawberry aroma has some unripe kiwi notes and a sweaty wheat note in the finish that takes on a little tartness as it opens.
T- the taste of dry field corn is mostly DMS with some fruity tart sumac flavors that lead to unripe kiwi, green woody notes and a quickly fading strawberry hint. The finish is slightly fruity with a fruity acidic taste that lingers.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight scrubbing little fizz but no alcohol heat noticed.
O- The odd corn DMS gets in the way but the nice sumac notes help to cut it a good bit. The fruity flavors are not really bright fruit character and it dries out even more as it opens.
