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 a nice small head. For tart fans only, and even then a few ounces is all I could tolerate.

Bottle I brought to share at AndrewK’s tasting.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some kombucha tea aromas. Taste is much the same with a pretty sour flavor and a mild spice finish. This beer has a high level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and very interesting.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that completely faded away.
S: There are moderate aromas of the Kombucha tea and lemons in the nose along with some hints of sourness.
T: The flavors in the overall taste are essentially evenly divided between sourness and the tea.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer definitely has a very unique smell and taste. I would definitely try this again if I have an opportunity to do so.

im not a big kombucha guy, so its hard to be objective about this one, which i have been looking at forever and afraid to try. surprised by its clarity, looks like champagne in the glass, clear yellow pale with a bit white bubbly head, very clean and neat fancy looking. the nose is brutal though, like straight yellow mustard, unappealing as it gets, acid and vinegar and cheap mustard. the flavor is far better, and the lambic is tasted ahead of the tea, which i appreciate. very very sour, and way more carbonated than anything else i have had from these guys. super dry and sour funky, but just too weird for me to get into or drink much of, sits weird in the belly, and now the tea really gets going. the carbonation is through the roof, and it seems to exacerbate the sourness of the beer. the flavor isn't all that bad, but i can't get past the yellow mustard nose, it turns the whole thing for me. i like the idea, and see it gaining in popularity with crooked stave and all, but it has yet to really catch on with me. maybe ill come around, maybe not.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a fizzy pale yellow color with a buoyant head that fades like a soda

Smell: I've never had Kombucha so I am only guessing that it is responsible for the herbal tea elements in this brew, which has a lavender character as well

Taste: A hint of lavender, up front, and then the tart, lemon and green apple flavors take over; after the swallow, the Kombucha elements appear and linger in the finish alongside the lavender

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with effervescent carbonation

Overall: Very unusual and glad I tried it but doubt I would seek it out again; a bit bland for my palate

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

An oddly appealing ale of low body and alcohol, but packed full of flavor and complexity. Part beer and part fermented tea, this specialty ale is both refreshing and characterful.

Pouring a murky lemon color and with a pelicle-like foam, the beer has somewhat still look with stark white foam and mild lace.

Lemony and flowery, the nose offers a lot of aroma not found in other beers: lemon and lime, hibiscus, tart candies, cider, and a raw earthy scent of tea-like herbs, corriander, and dried orange peel.

Flavors are an intertwined bit of sweet and tart. Lemond rinds and lime juice is pit up against cidery apples, acetic tones, powdered sugar sweetness, banana, appricot, clove, and a grassy taste in finsih that's not exactly hop derived. Moderate acidity provides balance because of the low lying hop character, this is a sweeter tasting Lambic than I'm used to. The flowery notion in flavor gives an odd yet playful perfume character.

Light because of the acidic fruit character and spritzy in an almost sparkling wine kind of way. But somewhat dull in the way the unresolved sweetness lays on the tongue. Very odd to see this type of weight for a sour ale. Flowery slickness provides a coat of the tongue while allowing for a powdery dryish finish.

A very odd, but not unappealing beer. More dryness is needed to bring the beer closer to balance, to increase drinkability, and to keep the beer from tasting like fruit flavored candies.

A: Pours a really nice light peach color with only the slightest head and no lacing.

S: slightly acidic with a small amount of funk. Some slight citrus rind and fruit essence, although im having a hard time picking out specifics.

T: didn't really get much tea in he nose but i get a bt of that bitterness here. Again, slight funk and some sourness. More like.a berliner swiss in that regard as opposed to an unblended lambic.

M: mild acidity; nice and light. Fairly low carbonation.

D: all around this is a nice supper and good on a hot summer afternoon. Thanks, Alex.

Bottle: Poured a light hazy golden color lambic with a medium size bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light funky notes. Taste is refreshing with easy drinking tart notes with some light funky notes. Kombucha tea was harder to detect. Body was about average with good carbonation. Nice refreshing drink for summer with just the right amount of complexity.

Split this with kmpitz2 and autumnaldave at Bad Apple tonight... thanks Dave!

Served into a New Holland tulip glass, there were a few juice-like bubbles that formed and quickly dissipated. The first pour had bright clarity, and the second was hazed slightly with yeast. Color was a brilliant golden orange in the light. A different bottle I had later had a fluffy head of bone white foam that rose above the rim of the glass.

Aroma seemed to change as it warmed, initially served cold there was a certain Lambic-derived lemon zest, with a dose of minerally dampness. Toward the end of the glass it resembled the kombucha more, with cider vinegar traces, and funky washed rind cheese. Musky, almost footy, but not overpowering.

Fairly tart, extremely dry in the end which was pleasant. Lemon and lime zest, clean and light bodied. Spritzy carbonation, again very light and quenching, almost seltzery. The funky aroma manifested itself late, and didn't really come through in the taste. A whole bottle would be no problem for anyone into sour ales.

This is probably the best Lambic based product to come out of De Troch, though i've never tried their Cuvee Chapeau Gueuze.

Faintly foggy pastel lemon with an alabaster crown that is both crackly and sponge-like. The lid looks pretty good while it lasts... but it doesn't last... and it doesn't grace the glass with more than a few dots and spots of suds.

The nose is an enjoyable blast of freshly zested lemons, along with a 'just right' amount of fairly tame musky funkiness. It smells like this Vanberg & DeWulf Belgian ale will be an enjoyable bottle of beer.

This reviewer is definitely not the first person (or the 50th) that should be consulted when it comes to lambics, gueuzes and sours. That's what we have Gueuzedude for. Having said that, this blended ale is pretty good stuff if you like low-ABV, citrusy tart, faintly funky, quenching, dry-at-the-finish summer picnic beer.

Crisp and crackery pale malts don't provide much flavor or body. Lambrucha is pretty much all top notes, which include a few orchard's worth of lemons, tart apples, a small shot of white wine vinegar, and a few threads from a straw-flecked horse blanket. Not that I've actually tasted that last one.

Since I have no idea what Kombucha tea tastes like, hard to tell if it's appreciated or not. It's interesting that this is the second beer in the past 4 days (Goose Island Fleur) that has contained Kombucha. The mouthfeel is feather light and appropriately sparkly.

Even though this is not a beer that I'll bring home again (especially not at $9.99 per), it's an enjoyable taste of summer sunshine on a day when the mercury will struggle to reach double digits. Bottom line: probably worth the price for those who love the style.

Big thanks to Bobby for sharing this. I've been wanting to try it for quite some time now.

A: This one pours a surprisingly clear yellow color with a touch of pink and a short lived white head.

S: A very earthy nose to this, which was sort of surprising. A bit of a mushroom type aroma, and wet dirt. Spice and phenols along with plenty of yeast. Moderate acidity, but nowhere near what I was expecting.

T: The same earthy quality is present on the palate with a strong mushroom, dirt, and wet oak. A big bacterial presence and a lot of lactic acidity and moderate sour. A really different flavor.

M: The body is quite light with a high level of carbonation and a dry finish.

D: I liked this, which didn't really surprise me, but considering what it really is, I don't think I would buy much of this at a fairly high cost.

Served in a glass mug.

Thanks to VDubb86 for sharing this bottle!

Not extremely familiar with kombucha, but it definitely sounds intriguing, especially when some lambic is involved as well. This concoction pours a hazy amber-orange juice topped by a bit more than a finger of fairly rapidly-diminishing white foam. The nose comprises orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, black pepper, parsley, clove, and limeade. The taste holds notes of lemon, lime, green apple, cinnamon, mild pepper (by this I mean hot, a la jalapeno or something), cilantro, and lightly tart green grapes. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a sticky feel. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this unique brew. I'm not sure I'd actively seek it out very often, but it is a very nice change of pace.

Green glass bottle with hood and wire cap over a cork acquired at an L.A. bottle shop for $12.99 and served into a New Belgium stem goblet in me gaff in Los Feliz. Reviewed live. Expectations are fairly high; it was recommended by a friend and I'm in the mood for a good sour.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger white colour frothy foamy head of good cream and thickness, and good retention - though the ABV is quite low so this isn't particularly impressive. No lacing whatsoever. Body colour is a pale lemon-gold. Semitransparent and translucent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Medicinal notes are dominant. Pale malts, a lemon twang, and some light hints of sourness. I expected far more from the aroma. Crystal malt. A mild strength aroma.

T: Citrusy lemon/orange twang is a highlight, with pale malts providing the foundation. Some herbal notes on the backend; I'm not fond of them. I've never had kombucha but if it tastes like this count me out. A bit bitter and earthy as well. Bleh. Imbalanced and not well built.

Mf: Tingly coarseness brings out the crystal malt. A bit champagney. Overcarbonated. Too thick. Good wetness.

Dr: Surprisingly difficult to drink for its low ABV. This is mostly because of the bothersome kombucha flavours, which I'm not at all a fan of. Maybe this is one I can chalk up to personal taste, but I wouldn't recommend this. That said, it is nicely refreshing.

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.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with light amounts of visible carbonation (though it is cloudy when you get to the yeast in the bottom of the bottle). The beer has a finger tall fizzy white head that dissipates to a thin tiny patch in the center of the glass almost immediately. No lacing is observed.

S: Smells of brett and very similar to plain kombucha - lightly funky and lightly sour. There are also some light floral/citrus hints.

T: Very similar to the aroma though I also get some light hints of ginger ale/ginger beer. I feel like the flavor of the kombucha is pretty dominant in this offering, with the brett coming through though not as strongly. There is a very enjoyable lingering citrus tartness/sourness.

M: Light bodied with significant amounts of carbonation. Crisp and effervescent.

O: I really enjoyed this one but I am a regular drinker of kombucha (something that you can definitely tell is an ingredient in this beer). Very light and refreshing, I could drink this one all day long.

Thanks to kbutler1 for sharing this one.

Poured into CCB snifter.

Pours a fizzy white head that fades down fast. Color is a clear golden orange.

Aroma: Some sour notes and oak. The tea flavors are unique, but I like it. It has some hay and barnyard funk to it with slight lemon flavors.

Taste: The funk flavors meld really well with the tea. Some light oak and light medicinal taste.

Mouthfeel: Tart and mouth puckering. Medium bodied with a low to medium amount of carbonation. Ends crisp, a bit dry.

Overall, this beer would be great on a hot summer day. Very refreshing and drinkable. I enjoyed this one.

Shared at a recent tasting. The best thing about this beer is that it was low in alcohol. Other than that....hmmmm....

The more I think about it, I want to describe it as a mix between a base lambic, a gruit ale, and a berleinweiss. Beer is yellow and hazy, high carbonation and a huge head. No lacing. Head is large and medium bubbles, falls away quickly but there is a lot of carbonation that continues for the duration.

Aroma is bright and lemony. Strong lactic character, smells like a strong berleinerweiss with lemon syrup. There is also a gruit / tea aroma, pretty strong. Very odd. I'm still really really afraid. I do think that it is what is intended.

I love lambics. Really sour Cantillons, Rene Gueuze, I just love lambics. Seriously. This is unlike any lambic I've ever had. First, its TOO carbonated, the carbonation on the tongue is harsh. Its too bright and very hard to drink. Citrus character and very thin. Lactic and a berleiner character throughout.

This is an interesting experiment. I would not drink it again though. I did not enjoy it. I wonder if the Lindemann's tea lambic is similar to this.

750ml bottle by way of Capone's courtesy of Oglmcdgl, thanks for the shot.

Lambrucha has that bright yellow glowing shine that looks like a treat. On top a big 2 fingaz of loose bubbly bubbles sprang forth before retiring. No lace, but alot of rising bubs.

Smells like a lambic with barnyard musk, hay, Baltimore feet and a sprinkle of citrus off the vine. With warming the tea spreads forth but does not devour.

LAmbrucha is quite the treat, an interesting take on a lambeek, tart up front with sliced apples and some peach. The mixture of the tart and fruit came off like a DFH Festina Peche at a certain temperature. The tea comes out and I like the mix, applause. Some earthy hops in this kinda fresh bottle.

This is light stuff, light in ABV, and light in body. Very dry finish on this, I mean sahara levels. Crisp and a sharp punch of tart all around the mouth. Carbonation is high as can be seen by the eyes. Not eye watering, but mouth puckering to a extent.

I love that this is under 4%, I wish I drank more beer light like this, but a whole bottle would practically kill me, Im up for the challenge though. Lamby is tasty stuff that's worth a single bottle purchase. The tea works well with this tart young lambic, an interesting remix.

Sampled from the bottle at The Map Room, Chicago: July 2010
a careful pour produces an almost two finger thick, pale white colored head that quickly falls. The beer is a hazy, gold hue. Wow, what an interesting nose, it actually smells like kombucha, that strangely sweet and tart character, with some tea infusion in the aroma. There is a fruitiness to the nose that reminds me of kiwi for some reason. The nose reminds me more of kombucha than Lambic, though there are a lot of similarities between the two. A touch of mushroom aromatics, a definite acetic edge that is just barely noticeable in and of itself, but definitely spices up the aroma of this beer (perhaps even being responsible for the fruit like aromatics.

Very light and effervescent feeling as it hits the tongue, it doesn't have the texture of a typical Lambic. It is nicely tart, in a light, refreshing sort of way. The finish reminds me of kombucha (with that tea infused flavor), not surprisingly with some lactic acid lingering on the palate as well as some light apple notes, and even light kiwi. While the tartness is mostly lactic, there are some soft other acid influences, that are just barely noticeable; this seems to be mostly acetic, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some other secondary acids contributing to the mix.

This is certainly an interesting combination, despite the similarities between kombucha and Lambic, I feel that the former dominates the flavor and aroma profile of this blend. Perhaps this is due to the simplicity of the lambic that was blended in. This is extremely light and refreshing and this definitely goes down quite easily on a warm summer's day. This last and the fact that it is an interesting use of kombucha are the main selling points for this. Worth trying, but I can't seriously see myself getting this again, but I am also not a huge kombucha person.

Shared with a few friends on a Friday night. Pours a fairly clear pale golden color with a decent white head that shows moderate retention. Smells of tart and funk, no really. Lemons and yellow mustard mixed with truffles and barnyard. This is quite an odd aroma, but it kind of works. Taste is tart funk with a nice puckering of lemons dominating the flavor. Earthy barnyard mixed with fungi round out the flavor. Medium body, spirited level of carbonation and a puckering tart mouthfeel. I enjoyed trying this, but I couldn't see me drinking more than the 6 or so ounces I had in one sitting.

This beer pours with a big, white, foamy-soapy head that doesn't last long at all, leaving a slightly cloudy golden, light amber liquid.

Tart aroma. Some spices dance around a light malt/biscuit backbone. A bit funky

This beer reminds me of a berlinerweiss, but not quite. A light breadiness underneath. Spices and tartness are dominant, but they don't overpower the beer. Barnyard, yeasty characteristics. The sourness is complemented by some tannin from the tea, I'm guessing. It has a sharpness to it that is welcomed by a guy who doesn't really like sours.

This is a very drinkable beer. The 3.5% helps, but the tame tartness is quenching

S: Dandelion greens, fermented vegetables, earth.

T: Sauerkraut juice, lots of lemon and funk, good flavour.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, quite acidic, a direct blend.

O: I like lambic and Kombucha, so I was very exicted to try this. It is a very interesting hybrid, the acidity is very good, for fans of the 2, I'd say get a bottle.

Vanberg & DeWulf (courtesy of Brewery De Troch)
Style: Lambic - Unblended
ABV: 3.50 %

LOOK: Hazed light golden color. Bone white head forms and stays the duration. Active carbonation rising to the top. Minimal yeast sediment in the 25oz bottle.

SMELL: Sour, barnyard, oak, and a big whiff of a flowery exotic tea of which I must admit I am unfamiliar. The herbal tea aroma is very present and sticks out above the funk.

TASTE: Very nice sour upfront, lemon peel, musty basement, wet oak. Then the tea comes in, some tasters have detected lavender, heather, mint, wood, earth. A bit like a Chai tea. Then more lactic sour, bitter, intense flavor paired with herbs and ginger.

FEEL: Finishes dry with a clean herbal note and lingering tartness. Light bodied feel, aggressive carbonation. Pretty spot on.

OVERALL: This is an interesting blend of flavors, and it makes for a good drink. Being a fan of sours, the tang of the De Troch base beer is better than ever in Lambrucha. For a beer of little ABV (3.5%) it packs a punch in the flavor dept. This could easily be set down in a cellar for years with no ill affect. Purveyors turned blenders Vanberg & Dewulf picked some nice barrels of sours to make this, hopefully there will be more experimentation to come.

A: poured a pale light peach orange with pale yellow highlights and had a finger of bubbly head that dissipated really quick leaving very little lacing sticking o the glass.

S: it had a funny sulfur aroma upfront with a bit of bretty funkiness but with some citrusy, oaky. tart notes, and vinous charater.

T: a blend of peachy sulfur flavors were noticeable on the first sip alongside citrusy, oaky, mild bretty funky accents and a touch of tart character.

M: the brew was medium in body with a high amount of prickly carbonation which had a sulfur, mild fruity, oaky, and tart finish.

D: regardless of the weird sulfur characteristics all around it was still pretty drinkable but wasn't as tasty as I thought it would be.
