750 ml bottle poured into a goblet.

A- Hazy and yellow, with some whitish hues. The head dies quickly.

S- Tang and funk. Kiwi tartness is subtle, but noticeable.

T- Bright and tangy. Cider, kiwi. A little oaky and funky.

M- Tangy, funky and tart. Sweet tang finish. Light effervescent body.

O- Really nice. Upland has really established themselves in the sour game.

Yellow color with turbidity of either yeast or kiwi fruit particles floating around in a relatively big way. Aroma was powerfully sour, fruity

Taste was brutally sour. Enamel destroying sour. Stomach gonna get tore up. So acidic. I liked it don't get me wrong, the kiwi is nice, but holy shit do they ramp up the power of sour. Heavily carbonated. This beer can cut through anything before it, drink it without fear of it being overwhelmed by a bigger beer drank before it.

Its a good beer, but its very similar to many Cascades that have that innoculated lacto sour that is large, clean and lacks bretty tones throughout it.

I've grown to expect a lot from Upland Lambics and this one definitely didn't disappoint. As the name suggests the Kiwi is a strong and juicy but it keeps the sweet, sour, tart and tanginess that Upland is doing so well.

Cloudy, opaque peachy-orange colored brew. Head immediately dissipates to absolute nothing.

Aroma is pure gueuze: musty, rustic, and slightly sharp, with a touch of dirt.

On the palate, the brew is extremely sharp and tart. Lemon juice, lacto, kiwi, and star fruit; really, really sour, but favoring fruit and citric acid vice vinegar. Touches of both oak and straw.

Extremely puckering brew, making it a slow sipper despite the relatively easy-going ABV. Oily; medium-light body.
