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.

750mL bottle, a mix of De Troch lambic and kombucha, had to get it. This beer was a perfect thirst quencher on a hot NY day when I had to walk from the Broadway-Lafayette station to Andy’s place. Popped this open and tasted and said "ahhh" inside. Not uber sour or anything but showing the nice aspects of De Troch lambic as seen in the Cuvee. Lots of tart and lemon. I drink a fair portion of kombucha, so I think I can taste it a bit but I may be fooling myself. Appearance is super cloudy golden. Mouthfeel is medium-light. Tartness sits around for a little while in the throat. I like this beer and would drink it again for sure.

Bottle. Very clean aroma, slightly herbal and medicinal. Very clear with a pinkish hued color. Very clean and neat taste. A nice blend of a lambic and a unsweetened tea. Not sour in really any sense of the word. Fairly carbonated. The tea flavor really doesn’t come through extremely strong but is more like a tea you would get at a chinese restaurant with a lambic twist. Decently carbonated but the head quickly dissapates.

Bottle shared by willblake. Poured an ugly hazy orange bodywith a medium foamy bright white head. Aroma is sour and funky with notes lemon, tea and cork. The palate is perfect with a medium body, average strength on the carbonation and a crisp refreshing finish. Flavors of lemon and funk upfront and tea towards the end. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by Eugene. Interesting that this is made with De Troch lambik, as my experience with unblended De Troch at WSF was less than stellar in the very least. This has a nice, clean tartness, some some cardamom and spices, tart lemon. Mouthfeel is light, silky, good heft but very low carbonation (which manifested itself in very large, quickly popping "soda-like" bubbles upon first pour). Sourness is gentle, tea-like, kind of muddy. I dig this.

A-pours a golden straw colored ale with a bubbly white head. S-the nose is quite spicy and big, lots of pepper, corriander, notes of lemon, a touch of citrus, fresh ginger in behind. T-the taste is juicy and fruity. the spice is there, corriander and light pepper, hints of lemon, some lactic acid, light to moderate acidity, peaches, mango, grapefruit sweetness and bitterness. M-soft, smooth, syrupy, medium body, great carbonation to balance, dry finish. D-this is a solid beer, lots of good fruits and a nice spice balance with notes of acidity. easy drinking beer and quite good.

Aroma smells of chamomile and hints of horse blanket. Taste is very herbal, good amount of funk, but very well balanced between the "tea" aspect and the "lambic" aspect. Really a great beer.

Bottle thanks to regspier. Pours cloudy peach color with a bubbly white head. nice semi sour nose of peach, tea, oak and citrus. Kind of sour salt on the palate. A nice surprise.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Interesting concept- lets see how it turns out: The pour is like a nectary grapefruit juice that yields absolutely no head. The aroma presents with spicy ginger, rosemary, sage, clove, coriander, and some slight lambic acidity. Spice really dominates- not much to speak of in terms of either a malt or hop character. The flavor has much more funken glory- the starts is sour puckering acetic and lactic acid with an oaky barnyard funk profile that quickly shifts to sweeter, spicy tea leaf. The spice character isn’t as overwhelming as the the nose, but is prevalent just the same. The palate is acidic and puckering acidity that is quickly tamed by herbal softness. Really weird and interesting, but I think it actually works alright.

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.
