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.

nuplastikk (5785) - 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 doesn’t 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 (2827) - 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.

arminjewell (9253) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange yellow pour with no head, surprising for how much carbonation and the abv. Aroma has notes of big lemon, tart cheese, funk, lots of rotting mushroom, earth, funk, and tea like aromas, very overstating. Taste is a mix of sour lemon, parmesan cheese, bug spray, grapefruit, tea, lots of earth, mushroom, finishing sour, lemony, slight cheesy. Very undecided, but overall would probably drink this again.

very peculiar beer .. pours a deep gold .. mild foam .. . light prickly mouth .. . iceberg lettuce and pickles, lots of pickle .. . quick finish .. . a novelty beer at best, would be great with a club sandwich .. . . adam, the police officer says you need to drink more.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2013
murkey yellowish pour with a huge white head. Aroma was mustard seed, mint, lemon, lime zest, mushroom like dirt, leaves. Very tart. Almost cheese like. A touch of ammonia possibly. Interesting, odd, full of flavor.

Arayaga2 (2122) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Very light tangerine color with big bubbled white head. Aroma is wine, cheese, bread, hay and ginger. Taste is the same to a lesser extent with a very forward tartness. It’s very light on the palate and finishes pretty clean with a mild but persistent barnyard note.

theisti (3882) - 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 (5858) - 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.
