4.29/5 rDev +20.2%
Poured pale mint green, hazy with a thin, shot lived head, and lazy carbonation.
Aroma of ginger and lime
Tart lime, ginger with a long tart finish. Light bitterness and sweetness keep balance.
Light body, with some alcohol, and a silk texture. Thirst quenching, a refreshing.
This is one of those pleasant surprises, that I will seek out in the future. Nice relaxing beer for a warm sunny Sumer afternoon.

Each bottle is a living product, with active yeast that continue to bounce around, munch on the tea's sugars and produce carbon dioxide. Carbonation levels vary, and there's definitely the danger of spillovers -- as happened with the ginger version of this beer. A good third of the bottle spilled out in a fizzy, funky, ginger-tinged eruption.
The color and clarity of just-squeezed lemonade -- cloudy, thick yellow. In contrast to the other varieties, this version leads with ginger, fresh-cut and fresh-squeezed and pickled. Grapefruit and soil. Ginger is the leader of the flavor as well, blending lemon juice in there -- reminds me of a cocktail. Super-high carbonation, champagne levels.
My favorite of these odd ales -- liquid pickled ginger. Drink it with sushi.

I poured this one into my snifter and got (for a second) a finger of what seemed to be white head, which was very effervescent. The beer itself is a translucent mild and muted yellow color, with a constant fizz going on. A little bit of sediment rests on the bottom of my glass.
Smells of wheat, wild yeast, mildly of vinegar, slightly spoiled green apples and funk.
Up front its a little on the sweet side. Sugar, green and red apples seem to dance with the ginger. The back end gets a little sour with a hint of funk and wet grass. The very end has the hint of a gardeny flavor that may or may not be the kombucha. After reading the bottle, I believe it is the black tea they brew it with.
The mouthfeel is light-medium. It is very carbonated and moves very easily. It goes down clean with no residue and is actually a little refreshing.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired at the local Binny's as part of a mixed four pack with the Unity Vibration Triple-Goddess Raspberry Kombucha Beer. My third kombucha beer from Unity Vibration.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a pale murky straw yellow colored body with absolutely no head. Sits still in the glass. No carbonation visible. In a lot of ways it looks like a glass of white wine.
S - Smell is a bit more pleasing than the raspberry counterpart. Less raging nail polish remover alcohol fumes, some natural spicy ginger, and some tart vinegar. No hop presence or oak barrels in the nose, like the others.
T - Taste is a notch up from the raspberry version also. Less booze heat, and more full-on ginger kombucha. Vinegar, ginger spice, bacterial kombucha cultures, & some alcohol heat are most apparent here. Sugary sweetness from the black tea used is also highly apparent. A bit of peachy fruit comes out in the mix, also. Again, no presence of hops or barrel character.
M - Feel is crisp, juicy, tart, and sour. A little bit of alcohol warmth, and some ginger spice clinging to the palate.
Overall, this has been one of the better kombucha beers I've had from these guys so far. Of the three, this one is a likely contender for repeat drinking. It tastes pretty much exactly how you expect from a kombucha beverage with 8.00% abv. A fine choice for both kombucha and beer lovers alike.

Definitely more kombucha than beer.
For those unfamiliar with kombucha, it's essentially a probiotic with a lot of fermentation. In the US, it's a niche beverage that is popular with the vegan and natural food crowd.
The yeast in kombucha creates a natural carbonation. This exacerbates the overflow danger when the beer is poured.
I was expecting a beer with a hint of kombucha. This brew is precisely the opposite. It tastes like genuine kombucha. I happen to enjoy kombucha, so I thought that this beer was excellent. On the other hand, my favorite beer styles are trappist ales and imperial stouts, which makes it difficult to even classify this as beer.
5/5 for kombucha lovers.
??? for beer lovers.
