Cloudy yellow orange color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is strong kombucha, barnyard action, funk, lemon. Medium bodied, sharp kombucha flavor. Hit or miss beer.

Golf colored beer with a white head. Funky as hell, warty hops, hints of kombucha , mushrooms. Quite an odd bird.

Tried this from a bottle at Sour Fest at the Cajun Cafe. Pours a pretty gold with small head in a flute. The aroma is certainly unique with citrus, pine resin, black tea, and funky barnyard. The taste was also very unique with strong pine and pine resin, fruits (citrus), funky barnyard yeasts. Light body, heavy carbonation. Odd finish. Very unique flavor. Not so sure I need another one.

750 ml bottle from BoostIPA - thanks again, Shawn! Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly. I donít know a ton about Kombucha, but I know thatís whatís leading the way in the aroma - very leafy and herbal - with some lemon-lime tartness. The flavor dials down the tea and dials up the tartness, and a mild vinegar acidity. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation, and a tart, herbal mouthfeel that turns out almost briny. Pretty interesting. I like it.

Bottle at a tasting event. From notes. Tart and fruity with a decent bit of barnyard funk. Enjoyable, but not something I would seek out.

Excited to try this.
Pours an almost hollow yellow with a fine whtie foam. Smells strait up brats & sauerkraut, sole lemons, nice traditional kombucha character, bits of pepper. I like the nose. Flavor is tart with black tea of the kombucha and a nice lemon tartness and a slight hit of meat and a good run of herbal and depthy character. Medium with a fun fizzy, nice wet finish. I like this beer.

I like Kombuchas. I even. Grow them at home. I like Lambic. Might of should of left these two worlds apart. Hazy yellow. Has tart aroma and some vinegar and spices. A little bit if the tea quality, but mostly funk and lemon.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10/13/13. 750mL bottle shared by Adam - thanks! Pale golden pour with a small, frothy off-white head. I was curious about this one because I worked at a natural/organic market for a year recently and learned all about kombucha - though I canít say I ever grew to like it. The aroma is vinegar - a bad combo of mediocre lambic and kombucha tea - light funk, tea, mint, some spice. Vinegar on the flavor as well, bitterness as well, mild tea, more mint and spice. Meh.

Sampled from a bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are. Tart fruit and quite dry - maybe some tea elements in here. I thought this was pretty solid.

Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia 750ml ($16): Pours murky yellow with barely any head. Aroma is an herbal bomb. It is a smell I remember very well, but I canít quite pinpoint it. Sort of tastes like middle eastern food. Probably reminiscent of some Komboucha I have had. I am getting way more Komboucha in this than I am getting Lambic. My brother has been dying to try this for quite some time, but upon trying it, he was sorely disappointed. I have to say that I was expecting something better as well.
