Acquired in a trade with phaleslu, thanks Peter! It poured a slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was a touch of sour notes with sweet fruit notes. The taste was a touch tart, with some sour notes. Very enjoyable.

Big thanks to Sledutah, Craig!
It pours clear pale gold with a thin white head of foam. The aroma is Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’Ancienne like with acidic citrus coming from a semi rich depth of lime and tangerine as well as a touch of hay and some sweetness. The taste is similar with soft acidic citrus notes like lime and lemon to go along with a tiny amount of residual sweetness. Along with those notes some hay and tartness and soft light vinegar comes to the surface to create additional depth. This is solid and refreshing and has a somewhat thin body making it even more sessionable. How has this come from Ohio?

Bottle at the 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Nice level of balanced tartness and funky oaky notes up front, with some lemony notes, and low sweetness. Good stuff, very drinkable.

2011 vintage. Impulse buy at Belmont. Pretty nice overall. Fair amount of tartness and sour bite. Easy drinking and actually, refreshing for a lambic. Nice effort to try a pretty bold style. Tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a tulip. I had always thought of Rivertown as that local brewery that doesn’t really care much about beer. Perhaps I was wrong or perhaps some internal changes were made in the last couple years. Anyway, here we have my second wild ale from them. The first one was very good, so I’m leaning toward expecting something from this one too.
2.0 A: Hmmm. This gueuze is awfully low in carbonation. The cap came off very easily, so it’s possible it was never put on properly. Anyway, well hazed dark yellow color. Just about a quarter finger of head formed from an aggressive pour and it fell almost immediately.
3.5 S: This probably has a lot to do with the carbonation level not being adequate, but the nose on this is weaker than I’d like. Still, it’s pretty good. Plenty of acidity that leans toward acetic. Fresh outdoors funkiness a la running stream and leafy woods. Also some basement/sweat sock funk in there as well.
3.5 T: The taste is also good, but it is just a bit shallow. Lemony acetic vibes with tangy lactic acid, apple fruitiness, and the funks mentioned in the nose.
2.0 M: Lighter medium body. Barely any carbonation. Dead, lifeless mouthfeel. Sad.
3.25 D: I have no doubts that this was a good beer when it went into the bottle. Too bad the technical aspects fucked it up. The reason for this not having the proper carbonation doesn’t matter. This is how I bought it so this is how it is reviewed. I haven’t heard about this being much of a problem, so pick it up if you see it.

750 thanks to Craig. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A big nose of lemon and sawdust. The flavor is interesting: light hay, fruit, lemons especially, some lactic sourness. Interesting. Light oak. Good.

Poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks to Craig. The aroma is dusty, lemon, apple, citrusy. The flavor is more of the same, the lemon character is very refreshing. Nice.

Golden, hazy, thin white head. Aroma of crackerlike malt, light acidity, white grapes, lemon. Flavor: grainy-sweet, light malt, lemony acidity, light white grape notes, some light barnyard funk. Light in character but a lot going on, and well proportioned.
