S: It smells like kombucha and a wild ale. There is lactobacillus, some vinegar, a hint of grain, some peach and a hint of bourbon.

L: In the glass it looks like kombucha. the initial fizz disappears quickly to a hazy gold elixir with no trace of head.

T: The palate tastes like beer and kombucha and after a moment you realize that this is a good thing. The lemony, lactobacillus, vinegary tartness balances the peach sweetness. The bourbon is in there and while it is not very big it adds complexity and balances the kombucha aspects. The beer aspect tones down the Kombucha bite a little bit and makes it more drinkable. The peach flavors are medium to medium high. It has a sweetness not found in Kombucha from the peaches and this is a definite plus. There is a trace of bourbon barrel in the background that provides some tannin and a faint hint of vanilla.

F: The body is light to medium light and the carbonation is high with a softened kombucha bite.

O: This beer is not for everyone. It lacks the complexity of a good lambic. Kombucha fans will like this beer as will people who need gluten free or vegan beer. Drinkers wanting a "normal" beer will probably consider this a drain pour.

Light , transparent orange color with no head. Clean aroma, slight peach and funk. Densely sweet. No tartness. Descent peach flavor. No bourbon or wood character. Nectar like feel. Not my favorite.

Pours cloudy, bright yellow in color with 1/4 inch head that goes quickly. Taste is sweet peaches, oranges, and vinegar..super faint bourbon on the finish. Sharp and prickly carbonation with dryness that is coming from the bourbon. Tastes like an above average sweet and sour ale. There are others I prefer, but this makes for a tasty, juicy, summer beer.

Oh man, this was a disaster. Smelled of extremely potent vinegar, almost made me cough. Taste was okay, but the smell was so bad I had to drainpour. I had a different Kombucha beer from these guys at a beer fest and absolutely loved it. Not sure if this is spoiled or what happened but very disappointed.

Perfectly effervescent, tart with layers of peach. It tastes life sparkling wine in a way, and pairs well with food. I like kombucha so maybe I am biased.

Smells awful, but tastes fantastic! Sweet peach up front, nice tartness on the back end. Glad I went outside my normal judgement to try this.

This is fantastic! I don't understand all the low ratings. No, it doesn't taste like other beers which it shouldn't; it is a wild ale. It is phenomenal in taste and quite impressive that these flavors could pair together so well. Super sweet and peachy up front, tart in the middle, slight tea flavor at the end.

Looks like lemonade. Smells like sour ass. Tastes like a lemon wine cooler.
