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.

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 (5929) - 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 (8094) - 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 (2561) - 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.

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!

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Gold bodied with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is fermenting tea, sour fruit, leather, sweat, funky yeast and wheat. Taste is sour fruit, softer tea notes, leather, lemon juice, unripe berries, funky yeast, earthy notes, sweat, and wheat notes. Body is light and crisp with mild dryness and light acidic notes. Prickly carbonation. Ends with more tea, sour fruit, unripe berries, lemon, light earthiness, wheat and salty sweat.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2012
On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer is a clear pale straw/gold color with a medium fizzy ivory white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is somewhat herbal and funky at the same time. Light-bodied with an effervescent mouthfeel and flavors of sour fruit, citrus and yeast. The finish is dry and mildly sour with a tart fruity aftertaste. Decent light Sour overall.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2012
I definitely get the lambic portion of the blend - very tart, lemony, stoney, lots of lambic character. There is another flavor I can’t place, which I assume is the Kombucha - It certainly has a tea-like flavor (although that may be power of suggestion). What ever it is, it is insanely drinkable, and would happily drink a ton of this (even at $11.00 a bottle..)

drpimento (2100) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Very interesting! Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, off-white head that soon setted to nothing and no lace. Color is a slightly hazy yellow amber and no bubble trails. Aroma is tea, spice, malt and mild. Flavor’s similar to nose and the lambic really comes out and works well with the tea. Body and carbonation are great. It’s kind of a tea-geuze beer and nicely done. Excellent summer beer.
