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.

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.

Thx! to Jason for this one. 2011 Vintage. 75 cl, bottle split @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Apparently made with bacteria from the Senne valley and aged in wine barrels. Bottle is whisky-style with wine bottle decorations. Pours a murky golden with only some brief white bubbles, much murkier than any Belgian counterpart. Smell is nice horseblanket, def. Belgian-style, feel familiar, quite a bit of lemon sourness, light vinegar and lactic touches, some malts,… Tate is sour lemon, tart, BE lighter horseblanket, somewhat overpowered by the lemon and lactic sourness, light yoghurt sourness, taste is a touch watery, light vinegar, malts are there, light white wine and oak,… I think this is comparable to the BE stuff, def. some lactic touches which you won’t find here. Body is much fuller than any of the local examples, some malt substance,… Probably dealt with some infections. The owner didn’t like it all that much but I did. Thx.

Really really good. This has a very nice dry finish. Tempered tartness and a lightly sweet beginning. Favor is apples, pears, floral, funk, and just tasty. Loved it.

Excellent blonde sour, strange shape bottle from an ohio State fan of mine. Creamy head, I like the carbonation even tho they are supposed to be a tad under carbonated. Ciders vinegar and predominatly green apple sour. A dry chalky finish, real easy to get used to this one!

Bottle at James’ place.Pours hazy gold with a white head. Earthy and woody, with lighter lemony citric sweetness, floral undertones, and a nice gentle acidic tartness. I had never even heard of this brewery before, but damn this is some good shit.
