22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first encounter with a legitimate kombucha beer, and I couldn't be more excited. I probably bought the least accessible of the bunch that I saw at Binny's, but whatever. I love kombucha, and I love beer, so the results here are bound to be interesting. "Made in Michigan".
Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.
A - Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. My first encounter with a legitimate "gusher" of a beer, this thing sprayed champagne like bubbles and liquid all over my table and my phone. Aside from that, after the bubbles settle, the actual body of the beer is a pale straw lemon color with some tiny specks of dark sediment lingering at the bottom. Steady bubbles geysering to the top of the glass. Active & alive appearance.
S - Smell is deceiving, and when paired with the appearance, almost made me think twice about drinking this one. A sour, tart, stale vinegar aroma. Maybe some sun-dried peach / apricot in there also. An off-putting aroma, but I've learned from drinking actual kombucha not to let that deceive you. It mostly just smells like easter egg dye, to me.
T - Taste is a step up from the sticky appearance and lousy aroma. Authentic fresh tart peach juice, crisp carbonation, kombucha-esque bacterial cultures, white sugar, and vinegar. Not really pulling out any bourbon barrel flavors, sadly enough. Alcohol is very well hidden; it tastes almost like a regular kombucha.
M - Feel ends fruity, sticky, sugary, and sweet. Clearly there was tons of carbonation in my beer, and not flat, like others have noted. A happy ending to what began as a disaster.
Overall, I'd say it is a nice middle ground for kombucha and beer lovers, like myself. Clearly this wasn't the most "accessible" of the bunch, but it is definitely a unique beer experience. Definitely recommended to all odd beer lovers, and lovers of kombucha as well. Looking forward to trying the others.

22oz bottle split and poured into a tulip. Best by 04/23/14.
A: Pours a hazy light straw yellow with no head. Leaves a lot of bubbles on the sides. No real lacing.
S: Sweet blend of bourbon and peach. Has a sour aspect to it as well with a fruity Brett yeast characteristic. Mild in most departments, peach is the strongest on the nose. Almost an oakiness.
T: Quite a complex flavor going o here. Obvious peach, bourbon gives you a kick, and sour brings up the rear. There is a lot of sweetness as well. Sort of reminds me of a flavored malt liquor mixed with a tasty sour beer.
M: Light body with pretty high carbonation. A bit of stickiness to it from all the sweetness. Very crisp yet certainly a sipper.
Overall an enjoyable beer that is definitely worth a try. Not sure if the bourbon compliments the sour aspect of this beer but i enjoy the approach.

Served in a tulip at Decofest, thanks to Dan for sharing!
Quick review from written notes.
Pale and hazy, pastel lemon color. Thin layer of white foam fades fast to a thin ring around the edges. Minimal spotty lace.
Lemon cookie aroma, light citrus.
Mildly tart with a vinegary twang form the kombucha, some sweetness, maybe from the peach, but not much in the way of defined peach taste, more like wafer candy. Lower carbonation, juice-like. Overall interesting to try, but I wouldn't drink a whole bottle myself.

Looks like a really interesting beer, wild with Brett, peaches, and bourbon, gotta be interesting even if it is gluten free. I like the little sticker they throw on it, I'm guessing best before, with date 10/08/14
One of the worst eruptions ever in a beer, it was literally exploding out of the top of the bottle and I got showered, as well as the computer and everything around me, which now smell like vinegar thanks to this shitty infected beer. When I finally get back to it, there is no head on the small amount of beer left, literally like 2 fingers of beer and that's it. Murky hazy banana straw color.
Nose is vinegar and sour infection, plastic and drain cleaner chemicals, paint thinner, lots of acid and pure badness. Maybe ahint of fruity peach but that's about it.
Taste, not sure if I want to... Starts really sweet, candy sweet, with some fruity canned peach flavors, but then just lots and lots of vinegar and sour infection, acid, lots of vinegar and acetic acid, with some paint thinner and bad chemicals, really bad.
Mouth is, I give up, not even gonna continue. I rarely do this but I'm going to demand my money back for this horrible horrible waste of existance.
