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.

Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
Thin brown-red appearance, ring for a head. Cherry and oud bruin nose, some creamy peach in there somewhere. More malt in the flavor, some biscuit, light brett, and faint cherry. Very aggressive, sticky and puckering, but nothing here comes together, quite a bit of it all over the place.

Bottle from Peter’s RBSG courtesy of Jay. Pours orange with a pinkish hue. Aroma is classic dry sour ale: barnyard complemented with lemon and sour cherry. Really nice nose. It doesn’t taste as sour as the aroma would suggest, but the barnyard dryness and lemon are there. Nice stickiness. Subtly tart finish. I really enjoyed this.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle from Craft and Capone’s. Pours turbid deep dull gold with big 3-finger off-white head. Nose is tart, orange zesty, citric, with hopcitrus, and a very tart, hopcitric, orange zesty flavor.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
750ml bottle Pours a cloudy dark golden orange color with golden yellowish pear hues when held to a light source and a one finger white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Very earthy aroma with hints of soil and grass along with a strong tea leaf presence. Peppery spice with hints of cinnamon, peppermint and possibly some licorice. Slight lactic cream in the nose. The dank earthy tea leaf presence completely hides any of the lambic notes, if there are any. Not very funky with only a faint vinegary presence underneath. Very odd smelling with possibly some earthy hops. This beer has a medium body which is on the lighter end of the spectrum and tastes more like a lambic than the aroma suggests. Very spicy up front with tight carbonation and hints of zesty pepper along with a slight puckering tartness which quickly fades into a slightly creamy lactic center. Dry finish. The vinegary presence from the aroma is the only sour/funky element of this beer but it is overpowered by the heavy spice presence and earthy tea leaf flavor. Also, some slight acidity. The tea leaves provide a slight tartness but really is just very earthy and unpleasant. An interesting idea that doesn’t work so well.

Very interesting beer sampled from a bottle. This poured a hazy and cloudy dark golden color with a soft, ample and fluffy white head. The nose is full of dry fruits, like grapefruit and orange. The body is very bubbly and spritzy, but drinks pretty smooth. The flavors are similar to a lambic, with lots of carbonation and liveliness. I tasted some grapefruit, orange, earth and lots of yeast. The finish is quite dry, sour and tart.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Recieved in trade with Pantanap, huge thanks! Clear gold color with a large head that quickly falls. Light tart lemon aroma and a little tea-ish. Mmm... perfectly tart flavor. A good whack of tea, citrus and earthy notes. Quite bubbly. The tea character stands out more as it warms. Really nice.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2010
750ml bottle from Binny’s Beverage Depot, Orland Park, Illinois: This pours a slightly hazed lemon yellow body with an initially tall head that reduces to something less than a film rather quickly despite a steady stream of rising bubbles. The aroma begins with a sweet grassiness followed by a touch of old grapefruit. There was less sweetness in the flavor, although it was there in an earthy form. The rest was a blend of lemons, tonic water, pink grapefruit, and vinegar. The finish is a clean tartness. Interesting drink. I had had second glass with some Dave’s Gourmet Insanity Corn popcorn. They do not pair well. Drink this solo on a warm day.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2010
750ml Bottle: Aroma of hops, lambic, wood, sour fruit, slight tea, citrus, and lactic acid. Poured yellow in color with a small, white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium to heavily tart and light to medium sweet. Tastes of lambic, tart fruit, wood, light lactic acid, slight tea, and citrus. Medium body. Thin, tingly texture. Lively carbonation. Tart fruit, and lactic acid finish has a hint of wood.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear glowing yellow/orange with a fizzy white thinner head. Aroma of latex or doctors office, very lactic, vinegar, some lambic, seems minty. Sweet and quite sour, lactic, harshly lactic, tangy, lightly fruity, very yogurty, mouth puckering at times, tastes just like cranberry juice actually. Corse larger carbonation.
