2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Vegetal, woody, peanuts, nutty, grainy, earthy. Not as good as I was hoping for. Interesting none the less.
