This was the last of the Hoop Teas that Val bought. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hoop Tea is more than just a handmade alcoholic beverage. It is summer in a jar. Sunlight, held together by water and tea leaves. Brewed by the sun and steeped in the salty air, Hoop Tea is crafted on the beach of Ocean City Maryland. Each ingredient is hand picked and blended using our original recipes. We take great pride in creating the world’s finest maltisinals right here on the beautiful shoreline of America. We use natural ingredients, purified water, organic cane sugar, and a thousands of years old process of fermenting natural sugars from steeped grains to create alcohol. Our flavors are as free spirited and fun loving as our hometown. We choose the highest quality tea leaves, herbs, fruits, and flowers. We never add artificial colors or imitation flavorings. Real ingredients create unreal flavor. We promise to deliver you a beverage that will quench your thirst and feed your soul. Thank you for joining us in pursuing our passion. It’s what we were put on this earth to do.”
Random: I don’t think I’ve had an iced tea alcoholic beverage I’ve enjoyed.
This poured with absolutely no head on top of a murky brown body. There was no visible carbonation. The nose was a floral, sweet tea with some coconut. The taste was abrasive to me. I picked up an artificially sweet tea with some coconut. The floral note was pleasant, but completely overwhelmed by artificial sweetness. The body was watery at best. The finish was thankfully quick with the artificial sweetener. I could only get through a few sips of this. This just wasn’t for me.
