2013 bottle into a snifter.

A. Pours darkish straw with a small white head. I was hoping for green!

S. Acetic and lactic, a little cheesy, lots of acid. This one's going to be sour.

T. Very sour, lactic, moderate vinegar. Kiwi comes out subtly around the edges with some rindy tart fruity notes.

M. Light-bodied, very light carbonation. Dry and very tart on the tongue.

O: This is probably the most sour of the Upland "lambics." A toned-down acidity and more kiwi character would have been nice.

Wow. This is by far the most sour thing I have ever drank before. So sour that I didn't get much of the kiwi.

This beer is harshly tart, like most other Uplands, and painfully so. The kiwi flavor peeks its way through, but in general, the tart quality is overwhelming and wholly cringe and pain worthy.
