Vanberg & DeWulf's Lambrucha is the first time that two different types of live yeast drinks have been blended together to create a completely new live yeast beverage. Lambrucha is the brainchild of Don Feinberg, with technical yeast management assistance from Dr. Roger Mussche (the Belgian brewing scientist who is the world's leading authority on Brettanomyces yeast). Lambrucha is blended at Brouwerij De Troch in Wambeek — the heart of Payottenland. Lambrucha combines hand-selected house Lambics that are a minimum of one year old, and specially brewed organic Belgian kombucha.

Kombucha has been enjoyed in Central Asia for millennia. A deliciously tart effervescent beverage is created by pitching a mushroom into tea and letting it ferment. Kombucha is renowned for its probiotic, health-giving benefits. Lambic is the legendary spontaneously fermenting beer from the Senne River Valley in Belgium. Lambic contains some 500 different yeasts. Lambic is the signature contribution to brewing science practiced for centuries in Belgium.

At 3.5% alcohol by volume, Lambrucha certainly is closer to beer than tea —but we think it makes more sense to describe it as "two great yeast cultures, one great drink."

Don's notes: Beautiful pale gold color with hints of rose. Aromas of sage, rosemary, cucumber and sea spray come bracingly forward. A lemony sourness greets the palate but is quickly replaced by even more refreshing flavors of pine, mint, rosemary and cedar. A tight, small bubble carbonation cleans the palate completely leaving a sense of tonic refreshment.

Lambrucha has been named one of the "100 Beers to Try Before You Die" by Chris Schonberger at Complex Media's site First We Feast. We are honored that 12 Vanberg & DeWulf made the coveted list. "A mystic marriage of lambic and organic kombucha that was named Experimental of the Year at the U.S. Open of Beer, this is the mimosa of beers. Light, bright, uplifting, and delicious, this is the beer brunch was invented for."
