This pours a wonderful hazy amber gold that glows in the glass. Funky funky funky! There’s a vibrant, floral and lively aroma with notes of kiwi fruit and strawberry blossoms. The flavor has a pleasing zestiness, a light bittering and lots of floral estery flavors as it tapers off, along with a subtle bit of kiwi hanging around to reward those who pay attention. Tasty.

Got this beer on a recent visit to Short's brew pub in Bellaire; it was described as an explosive and experimental kiwi saison.

The flavors of the beer were interesting and pretty good, yet overpowering for the palate. Bubble gum, kiwi, and wheat flavors slam the palate on the front, while the finish is pure yeast and bubble gum. The smell was acidic and almost offensive - it had fruit presence, but was too imbalanced to attract the nose. The mouthfeel was smooth and the appearance was as expected (pale yellow color with a decent amount of head).

This is an interesting beer that was worth trying, but would need some refining before I would consider ordering a pint.
