Holy Sh*t It’s A Mid – The Kiwi Fruit Edition. The first, draught only, expression featured mandarin and responsibly quenched many thirsts during the spring/summer beer festival season. For the current release, more than 300kg of local kiwifruit was sourced from a local farmer who was otherwise going to have to pay to dump it because it didn’t meet supermarket specifications, making it a move that sits well with the brewery’s sustainability ethos. A small addition of Rocky Ridge grown Goldings hops, a yeast culture from the Rocky Ridge dairy and Margaret River sea salt complete the picture.
Straw with a pectin haze, nose of cracker biscuits and kiwi fruit. Tart kiwifruit leads the palate supported by the cracker malt body and salty finish. The result is a highly drinkable, medium bodied beer with acidity supporting its restrained fruit and salt characters.
