One of the few glass bottled Kvass' i've seen. Purchased at Old Vilnius Cafe in Darien, IL.
Label claims "Kvass Without Sweetness" several times, yet sugar is the 3rd ingredient, and there's 20g of sugar in the nutritional facts.
Poured into a tulip glass with a thin layer of tan foam, spotty lace arounds the edges. Clear reddish brown color, a little lighter than most, seemingly.
Aroma was mild, vague rye bread and raisin, not overly sweet.
Taste was fairly sweet, raisin and rye bread again, though not as sweet as some other commercial Kvas, and cleaner than the homemade stuff we had earlier in the day. Well carbonated and fairly fizzy like soda. Overall a refreshing palate cleanser at a beer tasting, but not a unique kvass in the scheme of things.

3.23/5 rDev +0.9%
Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass. Best-by date is 5/8/2013.
Appearance: medium brown hue with a touch of haze and a good effervescence. Head poured a thin finger of frothy tan foam and quickly dissipated. A bit lighter than many kvasses, but not bad. Also, there is a nice lace on the glass that really adds something.
Smell: redolent of raisin bread. For a kvass, it's not bad at all.
Taste: bready and quite sweet; it's even more raisiny than other kvasses I've tasted. Not bad, but perhaps not my favorite.
Mouthfeel: light body with a decent carbonation; refreshingly tingly.
Overall: it's a bit on the sweet side (though the label makes a point of saying "without sweetners"), but overall it's a drinkable and satisfying kvass.
