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.

shigadeyo (3010) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

7/08/2010: Lambrucha... Aroma: Tart (like cranberry) and minty?; a bit fruity. Appearance: Fuzzy melon color (think blush wine). Flavor: Tart cranberry right up front and then POOF! gone... to tea with some floral notes and weak berry to a hint of peppermint and then finishes sour; quick and painless since nothing lingers; not much there. Palate: Light; mild carbonation. Overall: Refreshing, but itís a very weak lambic; somebody said, "pickled watermelon" and "table lambic" and both those describe this beer well!

1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle (3.5% Alc. by Vol.). Rating #157 for this beer.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle from Total Wines, Tampa. It pours cloudy gold with a small white head. The nose is earth, damp leaf, mustiness, herbal, lemongrass, faint blue cheese and sour apricot. The taste is lemon, juicy tartness, sherbet, lime, sour apricot, mild acidity, vinous and earth with a dry, tart finish. Light-medium body, high carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Iím not a massive fan of the nose, but it tastes rather nice. Nice refreshing sherbet thing going on.

rbrazell (1646) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle from Sourfest. Pale golden pour with a bubbly white head. Weird, almost off putting aroma of tartness, herbal tea, and yeastiness. Flavor was just as awkward. Iím not sure what to make of this.

poisoneddwarf (1711) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Rating from 6/9/13. 750 ml corked and caged green bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with a white soapy head with great retention. Aroma is bizarre: earth, vinegar, barnyard funk, herbal (I have no idea what Kombucha tea smells or tastes like). Iíve never smelled a beer quite like this. Taste is sour (8 in a scale of 1-10), acidic, herbal (like a gueuze spiked with herbal tea). Mouthfeel is foamy, body medium to near thin, finish dry. Odd. Iím glad I got to experience it, but Iíll never buy it again.

jcartamdg (1984) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pours an orange gold with no head. Aroma is vegetal and piney. Taste is tart, vegetal and funky. Kind of off putting. Not what I had hoped for. It doesnít capture lambic or kombucha. Itís not good

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Cloudy golden color. Very hazy. Medium head. Sour tea aroma and color. Very unique.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light hazy golden color lambic with a medium size bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light funky notes. Taste is refreshing with easy drinking tart notes with some light funky notes. Kombucha tea was harder to detect. Body was about average with good carbonation. Nice refreshing drink for summer with just the right amount of complexity.

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013
750ml bottle shared by Madvike. Cloudy yellow tan. Sour dulled tea and lambic mix. Kind of tastes like they pasteurized it, so it doesnít really capture or explore a real "wild" liveliness. Enjoyable, but comes off a little artificial. Kind of a tea lambic, not a World Class beer by any means and undeserving of the price tag.

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Vegetal, woody, peanuts, nutty, grainy, earthy. Not as good as I was hoping for. Interesting none the less.
