Bottled 6 December 2010. Beer was not balanced, no evidence of kiwi fruit in taste, and had a strong vinegar taste. Poured with head that quickly dissipated.

Pours a murky golden color with a very small film of a head. Aroma, green apples, puckering candies, pear, lemon,strawberry. Taste-tart, lemon, strawberry, sour peach a little. A fruity taste that is hard to place must be kiwi (not really tight with Kiwi lately)mouthfeel- very carbonated. Adds to a little bit of a shock from the tartness. Overall, I really do like the taste in this one. After a few sips it feels like it may be unsettling for the stomach. Be warned. This also doesn't come across as heavily fruited. I taste quite a bit of base beer qualities, which is nice.

Pours a loud, fizzy head that recedes almost immediately in a violent action, dissipating to nothing. A faintly fruity, tart aroma with maltiness underneath. Turbid, straw color. Starts insanely sour; a very poignant, biting sourness. Mild fruitiness turns into lovely maltiness. The finish is delicious malt with a fruitiness hiding in the background.

Overall, and excellent sour. Kiwi? I guess; the sourness pairs with the kiwi almost too well; it kind of masks the kiwi aspect.
