COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer is typically fermented in a very calculated, controlled manner with pure strains of brewers’ yeast. Our award winning lambic beer is instead fermented by exposing it to the untamed yeasts and bacteria that are native to our Brewery. We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk. This blend is unique to Rivertown and this unusual, spontaneous process, involving over a year of fermentation in oak wine barrels, is what gives this beer its distinctive flavor; dry, funky, vinous, and cidery, with a crisp, sour aftertaste that will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come.

Bottle (750 ml). 2011 vintage. From Scott, thanks! Clear golden/straw color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of leather, barnyard and light fruits. Taste is about the same with the fruits being a little more present and a touch of vanilla and spices. Light to medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Slightly vinous and dry. Good complexity. Interesting.

Pours a hazy yellow gold from the shared bottle, no real head or lacing. Aroma of funky lactic sourness, slight grain. Taste follows, a hint of sweetness that covers the extreme sour. Very nice!

zizzybalubba (1886) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Sampled at GABF 2013. Golden pilsner-esque pour. Strong sour nose. The taste is an assault of pomegranate, lemon, and apple cider. Sourness lingers on the palate. An awesome beer and one of the best beers I sampled at GABF 2013.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Shared by NobleSquirrel, 750ml bottle poured into a small La Chouffe glass. Headless dull golden pour, can’t see throught it. Aroma is a medium acetic with lemon and sweet sour. Flavor has some vinegar with a nail polish twist. Fruity vinegar American sour but not too bad or over the top, just some rough edges.

tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Via trade with Bmart. The aroma is wild, funk, sour lemon, sour grape. The appearance is an opaque gold/orange, thin white head, lots of carbonation bubbles. The flavor is acidic lemon, barnyard, dry red wine. The finish is sour, citrus, lingering. Medium in body, a bit creamy on the mouthfeel. Pretty nice. Nicely executed representation for this ununual style. Glad I got to try this.
