New Brew Thursday! This time we have a local "brew" from the archives - a cross between kombucha and beer. Woah.
Beer Type: American Wild AleAppearance: 22oz brown bottle with a "Unity Vibration" logo on a die cut label. "Beer" poured a hazy pale yellow color with no head but plenty of carbonation.Smell: Spicy ginger and some mild lemon aromas, plus the sweet and sour smell of kombucha.First Drink: Very tart and a little sour like kombucha. Not getting as much of the spice from the ginger as was present in the aroma.Mouthfeel: Very sticky with lots of carbonation. Not something you will be able to slam. Reminds me a bit of sparkling wine or champagne.Last Drink: A lot more kombucha flavor coming though now with the ginger bringing up the back.Drinkability: Not really sure? If you are in the mood for a kombucha and you also want to get a bit drunk then this is the drink for you!Notes: This is brewed here in Ypsilanti, MI. Unity Vibration makes some higher alcohol level kombucha as well. I like their "beer" better I think.Verdict: 3.5 out of 5. Something different, and something local. Can't really complain. I think the beer elements of this brew could be amplified a bit.
