adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2014
On tap @ the Source location. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. A lot of green herbal / floral notes in the nose. Definitely some orange citrus as well and a bit of tropical fruits. Flavor is slightly tart. Some leafy / green herbal flavors. Light potpourri. Spice and herbs. Finishes pretty tart. Fair amount of bitterness. Kind of fun but I’m not sure it’s an improvement on the original version.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On tap at The Source. Pour is hazy golden orange with a frothy white head and sticky lacing. Big fruity aroma, cinnamon, nutmeg - almost pie-like - sweet cherries, perfume, sweet tarts, and licorice in the aroma. Taste is cherry pie, licorice, white pepper, tart fruits, lemon, hibiscus, cinnamon, and biscuit with a tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. This is the best Kombucha blend I have had from these guys and a real winner. Sweet cherry pie and highly drinkable.
