On tap at the brewery from their last release, December 15 2017. Poured into tulip glass

Reviewed from notes.

Kiwi Herman Light golden tan appearance, no head, red wine vinegar, raspberry, tropical nose. Crisp, lactic acid, unripe raspberries kiwi. Starts crisp and tart, more fruity mid-sip. Closes with a quick, clean, finish with touches of red wine vinegar lingering.

Lives up to the hype. Only got a taste from the first release, this tastes better fresh.

2017 batch drank on 3/15/2018

Overall this was a fine beer to finally be able to try. The mix of barrels and fruits brought a nice complexity of flavors to this. The kiwi presence was really unique and pleasant. There was a good amount of tartness and while it drank really well, there was an unpleasant finish. A sugary, bitter aftertaste hit me and it really was not enjoyable. The only negative I have on this but the rest was great.

Thanks Ryan for Sharing. 16 oz bottle into a tulip.

Lightly red orange body
Smell - lightly tart and fruity with a malty biscuit aroma. On the tongue is lots of sour strawberry notes, lactic acidity, straw, on the aftertaste is biscuits, bready yeast , Corn. Like strawberry shortcake or corn bread with strawberries. Interesting beer, very tasty. Not a ton of kiwi flavor.
