2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Stas. Amber-brown. Aroma of caramel, rye bread, a citric note. Sweetish-sourish flavor with caramel, citrus, some bread, rather dry for a kvass. Quite OK for a kvass.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
2L PET bottle (JaamaTurg,Tallinn)
Slightly dirty savoury aroma, some sharpness of carbon dioxide, and a little bit dishwatery. Dark, but fizzy. Pleasant malty body, lemony sharpness, other acidic bite too. Thinish watery palate. Carbonation affects the taste too. Never had a kvass okroshka, and never had an okroshka kvass either. To be honest, I’m more a sucker for the sweetness when there’s a level of carbonation like this. It’s lacking the raisons too, and other things I like. Drinkable, and not bad, but not good either. Will be good for rehydration after doing some gardening, I’m sure.
