COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lambic beers are fermented by exposure to the untamed yeasts and bacteria that are native to our Brewery. We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk and Ville De Rivere Geuze is the outcome of a thoughtful, hands on blending of our young, one year old and mature, three year old sour lambic beers. Following the blending process, the beer is then allowed to mature in the bottle for up to six months and the result is a beautifully, balanced dry, musty, cider, vinous, sour ale that will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come.

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...

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.

AdamChandler (5177) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 8, 2015
2 Bombers acquired in a Rivertown sours trade back in 2012. Traded one away, drinking the other finally. Stoked to try this as their blackberry sour was very nice. golden pour, 3 finger fluffy head that faded to almost nothing. Very funky with a light sweetness, hints of balsamic, peach and wood with intense sour lemon. Taste is very acidic, sharp and quite sour. I should learn my lesson to stop aging american wilds. It has a nice funk factor but ultimately is very thin and not that exciting of a beer. Not sure this should be in the Gueuze category. No mention of spontaneous fermentation.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit, straw and spices. Light to medium body with flavors of tart cherries, vinous oak and mild spices. The finish is tart with a cherry and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
