I think I mentioned in a tasting note over the weekend that I was at a trade show on Friday. Club Kombucha was one of several different beverage companies present, and they were handing out cans of kombucha as samples. I’m a big fan of their Hops kombucha, but haven’t tried a lot of the others. This was the most interesting sounding to me, and it was actually very good! Something about it kind of gave me the same sort of citrusy/tropical beer type of flavour that I get from the Hops as well, but just much more intense. It was kind of nice to see that those distinct flavours I enjoy in the Hops flavour aren’t exclusive to that flavour.
Flavors: Beer, Citrusy, Passion Fruit, Tropical
So I bought this at the same time that I got the Raspberry kombucha flavour from this same company, and the raspberry was bad so I’ve been putting off trying this one out of concern it would share the same qualities…
However, it’s actually really nice! There’s a vinegar like tang and acidity, but it’s both milder than the raspberry and actually complimentary to the citrus notes. For a grapefruit flavour, it’s pretty orange-y tasting to me but the grapefruit comes through too. Very “Fresca style” grapefruit, but not really that sweet.
Y’know, I like a kombucha with a nice vinegar-y tang to it…
But this one literally tasted like drinking straight vinegar with a squeeze of raspberry juice in it. It was so sharp and acidic, and it actually burned a bit after more than a few sips. I just couldn’t finish the can – and that’s something that very rarely happens with me. It was just so, so rough…
