im not a big kombucha guy, so its hard to be objective about this one, which i have been looking at forever and afraid to try. surprised by its clarity, looks like champagne in the glass, clear yellow pale with a bit white bubbly head, very clean and neat fancy looking. the nose is brutal though, like straight yellow mustard, unappealing as it gets, acid and vinegar and cheap mustard. the flavor is far better, and the lambic is tasted ahead of the tea, which i appreciate. very very sour, and way more carbonated than anything else i have had from these guys. super dry and sour funky, but just too weird for me to get into or drink much of, sits weird in the belly, and now the tea really gets going. the carbonation is through the roof, and it seems to exacerbate the sourness of the beer. the flavor isn't all that bad, but i can't get past the yellow mustard nose, it turns the whole thing for me. i like the idea, and see it gaining in popularity with crooked stave and all, but it has yet to really catch on with me. maybe ill come around, maybe not.
