Batch 2 with a few years on it.

Sharp acidity as expected but a surprising amount of funk and cheesiness that adds some authentic lambic character. It's in the cleaner lacto lambic vein though so don't expect Cantillon barnyard. Kiwi, being a subtle flavor, is their but obviously not overwhelming.

A very good beer that exceeds its rating.

Perhaps some rubber in the nose that detracts quite a bit. Much more masked in the flavor. Autolysis?

Bottle from the Brewery
Slightly hazy straw color with a decent white head. Tart acidic citric and lactic with hints of earth and what I perceive as a hint of lime. Solid puckering, I'm not sure if I would pick out kiwi in this blind, but I enjoyed this nonetheless.
