COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LambruchaTM is a blend of Lambics we select and Kombucha brewed to our specifications. For every batch of LambruchaTM, we must taste and select the Lambics we want to use with the Kombucha produced for us. Lambic and Kombucha are naturally varying products so blending is the essence of how LambruchaTM is made. The Kombucha and Lambic used are living yeast beverages. To our knowledge this is the 1st time 2 living yeast beverages have been combined to create a third, different beverage. For this reason we think LambruchaTM is a truly new drink that combines elements of both Kombucha & Lambic. LambruchaTM is bottled for us by Brj, De Troch, Wambeek Belgium.

750 ml bottle at Churchkey, shared with Naheem and Paul. Extra points for bottle appearance. Hazy yellow, thick white head. Aroma of cotton candy and dust. Taste of citrus, strawberry, grapefruit. Very hi carbonation, light to medium body. Very interesting!

pours a hazy orange with a big foamy white head. really nice lactic acid, apricot, herbal basement funk aroma. fair amount of lemongrass, herbal. like an easy drinkin low to moderate tart lemony gueuze with some nice grassy herbal character. awesome. as it warms, gets a bit bready, however. mouthfeel is a bit water. awesome beer though, would drink often.

Tmoney99 (11099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy pink color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour herbs, watermelon rind and yeast aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations..

Much appreciated bottle from secret santa. Pours orange with white head. The head dissipates quickly and has no retention. Highly carbonated. Nose is tea and lambic tartness. Taste is tart with very well balanced tea flavor. The tea really shines through and adds a level of complexity to the lambic base.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Sounds like a cologne. Looks very much as one would expect, knowing the ingredients. Dingy yellowish pour, with visible bits of black leaf, and not too much carbonation. Moderate fruit notes in the nose (apricot perhaps) and certainly redolent of tea leaves. In the abstract that kind of earthiness certainly isn’t at odds with funky sours, but the flavor doesn’t really cohere for me. Some lemon tea, mild spice, and tartness throughout. Nice changeup brew and I can see those who find it invigorating. But I’d probably just go for one or the other, rather than the combo.

Bottle shared by OldStyleCubsFan. Pours watery looking, bright pink/orange. Nose is sour citrus and tartness. Some grainy notes. White grapes and vinegar. Similar taste... somewhere in between beer and kombucha tea, but much closer to the latter. Would probably just prefer kombucha, but this is a great idea.

Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s RBSG 2010. Aroma is rosemary, ginger, spice. Appearance is a clear yellow, white head, lots of carbonation. The falvor is very noce the same as the aroma. More spicy than sour (which is wierd). The finish is spicy. Medium to thin on the body, lots of carbonation. Good overall.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2010
750ml bottle. A thin white film quickly fades away, leaving a glassy surfaced, hazy pool of glowing, golden-orange liquid. There is no lacing, and the carbonation appears to be almost nil. The aroma is quite unique, showing notes of tart apple, tangerine, and lemon, with both citric and lactic acidity. There’s a lightly cheesy, yeasty funk, along with hints of white grape skins and wild scuppernong. The nose rounds out with some fresh cereal sweetness, along with notes of dusty cinnamon and herbal white tea. Not all of those complexities play themselves out in the flavor, but the lacto-citric acidity is certainly there, as is the light cereal malt, crisp lemon, and floral-herbal spicing. The stuff is pretty darn tasty, and the light, sharp edged body is about as refreshing as it gets. A light tingle promulgates the lemony acidity throughout the mouth. Damn, surprisingly good. A perfect summer beer for Florida. Fans of Berliner Weiss, lambic, and tea alike will enjoy this stuff.

2000 bottle thanks to chswimmer on BA. Pours hazy pinkish-orange in color with a fading white head. Looks odd. Floral tea and spice on the aroma, along with light fruits and sweet malt. I can’t say lambic and kombucha seem like a match made in heaven. Flavor is lots of tea and a little lambic. Very floral and fruity; pretty sweet. Not very good. Really no tartness to it at all, which is strange for what purports to be a lambic of sorts. Medium body. Overall, wow, this beer is much more deserving of the name "WTF" than Lagunitas WTF is. What a mess.
