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.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle at my 30th Birthday Tasting. Thanks Adam! Pours hazy deep orange, thin white head, no lacing. Nose is white pepper, persimmon, sweat, petroleum. Flavours of clean barley, salt, sweat, lots of lemon goin on here, but really not much else. I know Adam RAVED about this one, but I just don’t see it.

Bottle shared with alexsdad06 pour hazy orange gold with thin white head. Nose tart, light funk, some over ripe fruit, light powder, but light solvent Taste taste like a sweet tart, some sweeter flavors and then tartness. Some astringent from tannin. Not my favorite style but hay, another style down.

Bottle thanks to jsquire: Poured a hazy yellow with a white. Aroma very funky. Taste is tart and funky. Very surprisingly good since I wouldn’t have know about them if it wasn’t for Jeff.

Bottle from Liquor Barn. Very dry and vinous. Almost too tart, but very enjoyable.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle (2011 vintage drank in 2015): Poured a hue golden yellow color lambic with small bubbly head with limited retention. Aroma of light green apple notes with some tart notes and light vinous undertones. Taste is also dominated by tart green apple notes with some vinous notes, light oak and light funky ester with a thin finish. Body is thinner then I was expecting with OK carbonation. Not bad but doesn’t have the depth of the top Belgian lambic producer.

Pours a golden yellow with fizzy head. Aromas of lemony, vinous, barnyard funk. Tastes tart sour apple barnyard funk. This one was a little flat...

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Nice lambic bretta with citrus and some cracker. Hazy, tangy, good balance overall. Bottle shared at a tasting a while back.

Fritz123 (1597) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle share at Tom’s house. Poured a somewhat cloudy tan-orange with no head. Aroma is light cheese funk, some popping citrus like lemon and orange, hints of vinegar. The taste is fruity up front with citrus and some peach, acedic acid, light yeast funkiness on the backend. Not terribly in depth. But for a domestic lambic not bad.

2.8
DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle pour at Travlr’s Mini Bottle Share gathering. Cloudy gold with small white head. Some funky citrus rind, notes of flora and spice. No polish. They should probably try blending this.

Iphonephan (7263) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
From a bottle at the RB DC tasting September 6. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Bandaid aroma. Flavors of fermented alfalfa.

Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2015
Golden colour, white head. Sour aroma, diacetyl, butter, lemon rinds. Sour flavour, butter candy (those old fashioned Dutch ’yellow butter waffles’), fudge, funky notes. Finish butter candy, citrus, lemon zest. Not very complex, and a bit heavy on butter for my liking, but decent and with some balance. Not bad at all.
(from 75cl bottle @ Let’s drink all of Rich’s American beers Tasting. Thanks for sharing, omgrich!)
