COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New batch in 2016, 37.5cl bottles.

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.

A-pours a golden straw colored ale with a bubbly white head. S-the nose is quite spicy and big, lots of pepper, corriander, notes of lemon, a touch of citrus, fresh ginger in behind. T-the taste is juicy and fruity. the spice is there, corriander and light pepper, hints of lemon, some lactic acid, light to moderate acidity, peaches, mango, grapefruit sweetness and bitterness. M-soft, smooth, syrupy, medium body, great carbonation to balance, dry finish. D-this is a solid beer, lots of good fruits and a nice spice balance with notes of acidity. easy drinking beer and quite good.

Aroma smells of chamomile and hints of horse blanket. Taste is very herbal, good amount of funk, but very well balanced between the "tea" aspect and the "lambic" aspect. Really a great beer.

Bottle thanks to regspier. Pours cloudy peach color with a bubbly white head. nice semi sour nose of peach, tea, oak and citrus. Kind of sour salt on the palate. A nice surprise.

Interesting concept- lets see how it turns out: The pour is like a nectary grapefruit juice that yields absolutely no head. The aroma presents with spicy ginger, rosemary, sage, clove, coriander, and some slight lambic acidity. Spice really dominates- not much to speak of in terms of either a malt or hop character. The flavor has much more funken glory- the starts is sour puckering acetic and lactic acid with an oaky barnyard funk profile that quickly shifts to sweeter, spicy tea leaf. The spice character isnt as overwhelming as the the nose, but is prevalent just the same. The palate is acidic and puckering acidity that is quickly tamed by herbal softness. Really weird and interesting, but I think it actually works alright.

750 ml bottle at Churchkey, shared with Naheem and Paul. Extra points for bottle appearance. Hazy yellow, thick white head. Aroma of cotton candy and dust. Taste of citrus, strawberry, grapefruit. Very hi carbonation, light to medium body. Very interesting!

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
pours a hazy orange with a big foamy white head. really nice lactic acid, apricot, herbal basement funk aroma. fair amount of lemongrass, herbal. like an easy drinkin low to moderate tart lemony gueuze with some nice grassy herbal character. awesome. as it warms, gets a bit bready, however. mouthfeel is a bit water. awesome beer though, would drink often.

Tmoney99 (14021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy pink color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour herbs, watermelon rind and yeast aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations..

Much appreciated bottle from secret santa. Pours orange with white head. The head dissipates quickly and has no retention. Highly carbonated. Nose is tea and lambic tartness. Taste is tart with very well balanced tea flavor. The tea really shines through and adds a level of complexity to the lambic base.

Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Sounds like a cologne. Looks very much as one would expect, knowing the ingredients. Dingy yellowish pour, with visible bits of black leaf, and not too much carbonation. Moderate fruit notes in the nose (apricot perhaps) and certainly redolent of tea leaves. In the abstract that kind of earthiness certainly isnt at odds with funky sours, but the flavor doesnt really cohere for me. Some lemon tea, mild spice, and tartness throughout. Nice changeup brew and I can see those who find it invigorating. But Id probably just go for one or the other, rather than the combo.
