The third beer in the Fuggles’ Sour trilogy. The youngest sibling. Nobody really likes part 3 of any trilogy with some exceptions. You got Spiderman 3, Terminator 3, X-men the last stand, Superman 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Robocop 3, Alien 3… All garbage. Here’s hoping this is better than emo Toby Maguire and that 70s guy Topher FUCKIN GRACE as Venom. Gah!

So Kiwami translates to ‘peak/apex’. Hikari was ‘light’, Yami was ‘darkness’, and this is apparently not fitting the motif. It should be ‘darklight’, or ‘darkside of the spoon’, or.. maybe just ‘darklight’. The label keeps in the same vein as it’s brethren, but this one is gold, making it superior in every way probably.
The pour is an opaque, weird orange-pink color with a tiny bit of fizzy head that died immediately to a very small collar.
The smells are sweet plums, fresh wheat and a little sour kick. Simple and very nice.
The tastes are.. Well pretty much exactly the same as the nose. Sweet plums over wheat body with a lactobacillus bite. It’s not as sour as the Hikari, and a little more sour than the Yami, it’s right in the perfect middle. Like me nuts.
The mouthfeel is mid-light bodied and crisp. Has good carbonation. Flavors burn around the middle of the tongue and roll back to your sour pinch nerve.
4/5 This is the best of the threesome, by my tastes. Rides the line of ‘too damn sour’ very nicely. It’s simple, but if you’re like me, and like plums like I do, you’ll appreciate this beer. It’s limited, so get it if you still can.
