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.

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.

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.

Last bottle of the night I believe in Boise! Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. An interesting nose of lambic and citrus with light earth. The sweet tart fruity lambic is pretty dominant but there are some mushroom and earthy qualities. Very good. Dry finish. Tasty.

after4ever (6089) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2012
750, corked and baled. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a huge, surging platinum blond head. Head falls quickly leaving stringy lace. Huge funky nose, very forward and barnyardy. Sharp tea, mushroom, and lemon presence as well. Crisp light body with lots of funk and lemon, followed by plenty of old wet grass and hot wet hay. Mild finish. A bit much in the aromatics but a very good beer.

Sammy (8414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Puckering sour yet fun, thanks for sharing Americo. Definitely some mushroom and rope with vinegar. Strong fruit and wild yeast aromas. Cloudy peach colour with nice small head. For tart fans only. 500th rating of the year.

keepersj12 (2664) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Sour and funky on the nose from a clear light amber pour with just a wisp of head. There is a bit of leather as well. The flavor is like a shandy but not sweet. Lots of lemon and more leather. The finish is very dry. I thought the alcohol would be much higher as there is a bit of a burn. Strangely Intriguing.

NikkTwist (1539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle at Eulogy. Brilliant gold pour. Thin fizzy head. Lots of carbonation. Crisp vinous notes. Green grapes. Tart apples. Lemon zest. Passionfruit. Very floral. Definitely tasting the Kombucha as well. A touch sweet but a punch sour!
