Ilguciema Kvass - a healthy, foamy non-alcoholic beverage, brewed from natural ingredients as a result of unfinished alcohol fermentation. It has a pronounced aroma and the taste of a genuine rye bread. Kvass is brewed from barley and rye malt grain. Kvass only acquires the characteristic taste and flavour of fresh rye bread during the fermentation process while preserving all the biologically active substances contained in the malt, necessary for the human body. Ilguciema kvass does not contain food colourings, artificial flavourings and sweeteners! It quenches thirst and is perfect to serve with different dinner dishes.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2016
50cl bottle from a supermarket somewhere in Latvia. Pours clear brown with a lightly reddish hue and no head to speak of in the end. Malty, bready and sugary aroma with notes of dark, dried fruits. Sweet and bready with some acidty. Farily thin and watery and not the best kvass I’ve tried, but drinkable enough.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Clear red-brown, small beige head. Sweet aroma of molasses and cherry pie. The taste is very sweet, cherry or maybe plum pie. High carbonation and moderate acidity, that seems at least partially lactic. A frutier kind of kvass.

Bottle @ Post-Easter Procrastination, Ulfborg. Pours hazy copper brown with barely any head. Clear aroma of bread, malt and yeast. Sweet flavour of caramel, molasses, bread and malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Not the worst kvass I have had but the sweetness is just deafening.

Flavor is sweet, malt extract, some sour notes, fruity notes, honey. Finish is sour-malty-sweet. Carbonation is rather high. Overall: too sweet and sticky, but I would take this over some crappy alcohol free beer any day.

Beer5000 (5963) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2015
1,5 l bottle at the legendary Anker Hostel kvass rating session 2014. Slightly unclear dark brown body with a thin film of off-white foam. Aroma is mainly rye bread and malt. Flavor is sweet malt, rye bread with a hint of lemon and no really bitterness. Medium body and way too sweet aftertaste. Interesting to taste but more than a few sips becomes too sweet for me. Suspect there got to be more interesting versions off Kvass out there somewhere.
