COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(From the label) "Ville De Rivere Geuze is a wonderful blend of one year old and three year old sour lambic beer. Following the blend the beer is allowed to mature in the bottle for up to six months. The result is a beautifully well rounded ale: Dry, cidery, musty, vinous, and sour."

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?

15/VIII/15 - 75cl bottle @ We’re drinking all of Rich’s American beers tasting - BB: n/a, 2011 vintage (2015-1064) Thanks to omgrich for sharing the bottle!

Clear pale blond beer, no head. Aroma: little funky, sourish, quite some chlorine (which usually only appears in sours with fruit). MF: light to no carbon, medium body. Taste: little bitter, funky, watery, weird. Aftertaste: some tannins, dry, bit funky, watery finish. Pretty weak...

sebletitje (8286) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Dorée, léger voile, pas de col. Profil reste sec avec une pointe de boisé/chêne, léger fruité gardant ce profil similaire à la version lambic qui tire vers le cidre. Le tout reste aigre-doux. A le mérite d’être agréable à boire sans tomber dans le côté wild-brett des bières américaines, mais on reste très loin d’une gueuze belge.
