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.

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. Itís very light on the palate and finishes pretty clean with a mild but persistent barnyard note.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Clear golden with a thin fizzy white head. Odd aroma thats vinegaresque with a sour earthy leafy aroma that I wasnít too keen on. The flavor was fine, a bit tart and bubbly with a semisweet leafy flavor thats sour and slightly lemony with a medium light body. Glad I got this on sale because if I paid $11 for this Iíd have been upset.

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Slightly hazy shiny yellow with off-white head. Aromas of tea, herbs, light tart notes. Tastes of tea, tart notes, light floral notes, citrus, lemon lime, herbs. Medium body with a dry finish. Interesting blend and works fairly well.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy bright golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lemon, pear, green apple, hay, straw, grass, herbal tea, wheat, leather, oak, musty funk, light vinegar, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast, herbal tea, and oak notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart lemon, pear, green apple, hay, straw, grass, herbal tea, wheat, leather, oak, musty funk, light vinegar, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very slight tartness/spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, green apple, hay, straw, grass, herbal tea, wheat, leather, oak, musty funk, light vinegar, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of fruity/funky yeast, herbal tea, and oak barrel flavors; with a great balance of the tea and lambic character with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a very nice spiced unblended lambic. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast, herbal tea, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

burg326 (3889) - Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Poured a golden color with aromas of funk, hat, light resin and some light fruit. Flavors matched the aromas with a light mushroom flavor. This was an odd beer to drink, not overly sour, just something different about it.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Cloudy yellow orange color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is strong kombucha, barnyard action, funk, lemon. Medium bodied, sharp kombucha flavor. Hit or miss beer.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Golf colored beer with a white head. Funky as hell, warty hops, hints of kombucha , mushrooms. Quite an odd bird.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Tried this from a bottle at Sour Fest at the Cajun Cafe. Pours a pretty gold with small head in a flute. The aroma is certainly unique with citrus, pine resin, black tea, and funky barnyard. The taste was also very unique with strong pine and pine resin, fruits (citrus), funky barnyard yeasts. Light body, heavy carbonation. Odd finish. Very unique flavor. Not so sure I need another one.

750 ml bottle from BoostIPA - thanks again, Shawn! Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly. I donít know a ton about Kombucha, but I know thatís whatís leading the way in the aroma - very leafy and herbal - with some lemon-lime tartness. The flavor dials down the tea and dials up the tartness, and a mild vinegar acidity. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation, and a tart, herbal mouthfeel that turns out almost briny. Pretty interesting. I like it.

Bottle at a tasting event. From notes. Tart and fruity with a decent bit of barnyard funk. Enjoyable, but not something I would seek out.
