3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating from 6/9/13. 750 ml corked and caged green bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with a white soapy head with great retention. Aroma is bizarre: earth, vinegar, barnyard funk, herbal (I have no idea what Kombucha tea smells or tastes like). Iíve never smelled a beer quite like this. Taste is sour (8 in a scale of 1-10), acidic, herbal (like a gueuze spiked with herbal tea). Mouthfeel is foamy, body medium to near thin, finish dry. Odd. Iím glad I got to experience it, but Iíll never buy it again.

Pours an orange gold with no head. Aroma is vegetal and piney. Taste is tart, vegetal and funky. Kind of off putting. Not what I had hoped for. It doesnít capture lambic or kombucha. Itís not good

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light hazy golden color lambic with a medium size bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light funky notes. Taste is refreshing with easy drinking tart notes with some light funky notes. Kombucha tea was harder to detect. Body was about average with good carbonation. Nice refreshing drink for summer with just the right amount of complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle shared by Madvike. Cloudy yellow tan. Sour dulled tea and lambic mix. Kind of tastes like they pasteurized it, so it doesnít really capture or explore a real "wild" liveliness. Enjoyable, but comes off a little artificial. Kind of a tea lambic, not a World Class beer by any means and undeserving of the price tag.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Vegetal, woody, peanuts, nutty, grainy, earthy. Not as good as I was hoping for. Interesting none the less.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange yellow pour with no head, surprising for how much carbonation and the abv. Aroma has notes of big lemon, tart cheese, funk, lots of rotting mushroom, earth, funk, and tea like aromas, very overstating. Taste is a mix of sour lemon, parmesan cheese, bug spray, grapefruit, tea, lots of earth, mushroom, finishing sour, lemony, slight cheesy. Very undecided, but overall would probably drink this again.

murkey yellowish pour with a huge white head. Aroma was mustard seed, mint, lemon, lime zest, mushroom like dirt, leaves. Very tart. Almost cheese like. A touch of ammonia possibly. Interesting, odd, full of flavor.
