This recipe turned out AMAZING!!! So, I got frozen berries from Trader Joe's and they were added in secondary but smashing them up first with a potato masher in a bowl with very little water and the malt extract dissolved. They malt extract was added as a afterthought as I did not get great efficiency and figured the water content from the berries would dilute the beer's ABV and body, but next time it will be excluded. Also the strawberries completely overshadowed the kiwis and the kiwis were a bitch to peel so next time they will be excluded as well. And careful with the yeast cause I got too much clove and no banana, I'll probably use a smaller starter and higher fermentation temp next time.
It is the perfect beer to give those anti-beer women who you are trying to get drunk and into their pants, hence the name- although it has multiple meanings.
