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.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle: The aroma has lots lemony sourness and mustiness. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a minimal white had that quickly fades to a ring sound the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of yeast and is dominate with a big lemony sour finish with a hint of mustiness. Light bodied with a spritzy mouhfeel.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle... Pours deeply golden with a mid-sized, white head. Tart cherry and caramel nose with a notation of apricot. Medium-bodied and sticky with middling carbonation. The flavor is tart and biscuity with a rumor of sour cherry. Tangy, dry finish.

TheEpeeist (3398) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
25.4 oz bottle. Clearish pink with white froth. Nose is lemon, funk and faint oolong. Medium light with a dull sparkle. Taste is yeast, lemon and tea. Starts tart but smooths out with woody tea. A refreshing brew but not all that interesting.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Kan which to I took to Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering. Pours a milky gold with a medium sized white head. Lavender, rosemary, soft tea aromas. Lovely light floral sour, with hints of tea. Smooth and crisp. Absolutely delicious and easy drinking. Wish that this was available nearby and not just in Chicago. Loved this.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2010
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.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
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.

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.
