Gluten Free Beer Review: Unity Vibration Triple Goddess Ginger Kombucha Beer
Katrina Discovers Kombucha Beer!
When I first opened the refrigerator door, my eyes met the words ‘kombucha’ and ‘beer’ united on one bottle. Two of my favorite fermented beverages, both dating back thousands of years in our history, combined into one tasty experience? YES! I was quite intrigued to introduce this creative raw concoction to my taste buds. As I read further, I became even more impressed. Not only is this adult beverage unfiltered and unpasteurized, it’s also open-air fermented, oak barrel aged, bottle conditioned and artisian brewed. Impressive and innovative brewing processes Michigan!
Unity Vibration’s Triple Goddess Kombucha Beer
Popping the top, the aromatic zing of vinegar and the bold bite of ginger swirled through my senses as I poured the light golden beverage and took the first sip. Slightly bubbly and refreshing, the sweet body continuously builds throughout the bottle before finishing each sip with a tart, sour, dryness. My pallet loved the complexity so much, a person could bask in the depth of aromatic flavors. The sweetness combined with the sour finish is something my body wouldn’t appreciate more than one of at a time however; a treat-yourself kind of beverage.
Looking at the ingredients, I noticed hops were the fourth listed in this American Wild Ale. Interestingly, I do not taste any note of hops or anything beer related for that matter. I find it closely resembles a regular kombucha with a raw ginger ale twist. It’s so smooth however it’s hard to notice that it’s 8% ABV; leaving only a slight warming effect, otherwise the alcohol goes unnoticeable. It’s cider-like, but not quite. It’s really a beverage deserving its own category; experimental perhaps.
Summing things up, this is a unique, imaginative, healthy alternative to the traditional adult beverage. I applaud Unity Vibration for their positively innovative creations. I’m without a doubt looking forward to tasting the many other delicious sounding combinations. Looking through their website, there are many that caught my eye. Thank you Unity! Your progressive play and back-to-the-basics brewing will be appreciated by many: gluten free or not.
