S: smells like kombucha presenting at least four kinds of tart aromas - vinegar, lactobacillus, citric, and fruit tartness. Raspberry, a hint of tobacco and mild funk add to the tart aromas.

L: It is reddish pink in the glass with a thin foam cap that quickly dissipates.

T: It is a tart, funky, kombucha palate with a big rapsberry presence on the palate. The tart flavors have the same aspects as the aroma and are medium high while the raspberry and sweetness are medium. Lemon and mild vinegar notes work well with the raspberry. The raspberry and alcohol knock a little intensity off the kombucha but the acidity and carbonation still give it a little bite.

F: The body is light to medium light and the carbonation is high.

O: This is a very refreshing, unusual and interesting beer. This should appeal to kombucha lovers and those looking for a gluten free beverage.

12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Small label says 072316 - presumably the BB date.
Looks like a cherry soda with a clear pale red body and a bubbly white head.
The unpleasant tart, vinegary, funky aroma is misleading. This beer is not as sweet as it is tart, but there's an obvious sweetness, and there's negligible funk and little vinegar in the flavor. Still, it does have a near puckering tartness. Very flavorful with plenty of raspberry notes.
Light body with near medium carbonation.

12 OZ bottle
Served in a beer flute

This beer pours a rosy shade of pink with some amber highlights. It was topped with a fleeting inch of pinkish head.

The smell is sour, yet sweet from the raspberries with a little funk.

My mind is trying to process the taste. It is sour, but sweetened by ample raspberries. There is an almost vinegar taste in the finish. I have never tried kombucha tea, so I have no point of reference for the flavor.

Low carbonation with a medium mouthfeel

This is a unique tasting experience for me. It's not as horrible as the reviews led me to believe. It is different. I would not want to drink a whole bottle again. I few ounces is enough to get the gist of it. I would probably have it again sharing a bottle.

Here's a few words. Raspberry vinaigrette. I'd like this on salad not in my beer.

Im not sure where this whole thing went wrong or where they had the bright idea to add salad dressing to beer to make it taste better.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a bright neon red color with barely any head to speak of settling at a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of bubbly surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Weird funky aroma of raspberry mixed with what I can only compare to marsh gases.

T- Watery raspberry flavor. No tartness. Hint of malt. After a while, that kombucha vinegary taste hits the back of the throat.

M- Syrupy with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Horrible. Way too sweet, doesn't even taste like kombucha or even beer for that matter. Shocked that there must be people out there that actually buy this. Glad I didn't.
