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.

theisti (3094) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 20, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Served straight out of the wine fridge at ~60 degrees. The pour is a clear yellow golden with a noisy one inch white head that falls quickly. There are Champagne like carbonation bubbles flowing up from the bottom of the glass throughout. Actually, the overall look of this pour is very Champagne like. The aroma is floral verbena, herbal, there is a light gentle saltiness present as well. The citrus that is present is very much lemon peel. Earthy. The taste is lemon citrus right away, moving quickly to the verbena floral, the herbal, and a leafy earthy, softly tart finish. The sour tartness clears pretty quick, and gives way to a refreshing lemon citrus and floral beer. The citrus, floral spice really linger, pleasantly so. The palate is medium to light bodied, soft natural carbonation and the lingering finish. Quite drinkable, fun beer. Thanks for bringing this one back for me from St Louis, Eugene.

750ml bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Color is a slightly cloudy yellow amber with a small short lasting off-white head. Aroma of tea and spices with some notes of malt. Flavor is slightly sour and sweet with noticeable tea and spice again,

vyvvy (3613) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2012
I thought this would be just and interesting experiment to try, but ended up really digging this one. Pours clear golden / yellow with a small white head. The aroma has sour lemon, funky tartness, herbal notes, potpourri and dry fall leaves. It has a light crisp biting body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of refreshing tartness, dry lemon/lime, rustic leaves, bugs and earthy rootiness. The finish is very dry, earthy, tart and sharply acidic along with some flowery floral traits. Excellent beer and lots of flavor for 3.5%. This would probably go well with lots of lighter fare food.

Bottle. Golden beer with a whitish head. Earth and light herbal aroma with light spice and tartness. Tart, light aspirin flavor with light spice. Medium bodied. Tart/sourness lingers with light spice, light earth, and light tea.

Strykzone (4496) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazed tan with a blotchy head. This is so fruoty and it is nicely subtle. Kind of a grape jelly aspect. Quite lemony. I love the abv. Nicely done.

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours murky white gold with a pretty white head and a very funky earthy aroma. There is a carbonated fruity herbal flavor with a sour finish. This is a strange brew that one in likely to either love or hate.

Freakout (16) - Alaska, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Nice clear and bright light gold color with a huge white head..very tight/tart aroma followed by a pucker blast way to heavy on the kambucha side of things. Lemon, quince, mushroom, verbena..lots going on here. Well made but not my cup of tea. I like kambucha and lambic both...just not together.

beersearcher (2297) - Glendale, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Literally, I took only 1 sip of this beer. I could not stomach the horrible pickle and pastrami aroma. The taste was over the top funky and not worth fighting the aroma to get to. Probably the winner for worst beer of 2012.

Bottle. Hmmm, can’t remember where I picked this up, but a request was made this weekend by my in-laws for "something different and refreshing" from my beer fridge. After rummaging around, I found this. Seemed promising! Poured a murky dull brown with a fizzy head that retained poorly. Truthfully, it doesn’t look very good. Aroma is more promising: lightly sour, with yeast and softly spicy tea. Intriguing. The sourness stays mild on the palate, like real kambucha in my experience, lightly lactic, with the mainly tea, spice, and light leather as flavours. I quite liked it, and thought it hit the mark for refreshing, although it was a little watery.
