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.

Wow, this really just amazing. Sparking sweet and dry Mouthfeel. Aroma of chestnuts and fresh grain. Sweet floral and very sour flavor. Just fantastic.

Poured into a tulip out of a 750ml bottle. 2011 vintage. Pours a clear deep gold with tiny, minimal carbonation but enough to leave a small fizzy head. Just a few spots of lacing but it is passable. Aroma is quite vinous and almost stings the nostrils. Strong notes of barnyard and horse blanket along with a touch of wet hay. Some woody notes and a touch of grape must. The flavor closely follows the aroma up front. Strong hay and barnyard and very vinous. However the further you get into the drink, the more subtleties begin to show themselves. The wine barrel aging becomes evident with light notes of wood and some grape. A sweet shot of peach comes through that is quickly zapped by a drying, clean finish. Tartness is kept in check but is enough to cleanse the palate as it should. Overall, this beer is an underrated gem. I never had a fresh sample but I have to believe 3-4 years is the sweet spot. There is incredible depth and one would never guess this beer came from a brewery in an industrial park north of Cincinnati. This is up there with many Belgian examples of the style. Absolutely outstanding.

Pours a nice clear amber from a bottle, aroma of a nice tart apple cider vinegar, musty basement in a good way. Very tart and musty in the best possible way. Very good beer, might have to buy another bottle to throw in the cellar and forget for a while, see what happens.

Awesome american-made geueze. Cloudy yellow orange pour with pretty much no head. Subtle barnyard fruity sweaty horse ass on the nose. Fruity brett goodness on the taste, not overpowering. Slightly tart but not crazy. Awesome awesome awesome stuff.

Bomber shared by jsprime. Hazy golden with a white head. Fantastic funky tart nose. The flavour is classic geuze with half the normal acid. Super drinkable. For a beer I’d never heard of I was really impressed.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours hazy goldish yellow with almost no fizz. The aroma is light grains and a little cidery. The flavor is clean and crisp with a light sweetness that perfectly matched the mild fermented fruit. Slightly acidic with a hint of vinegar mustard. Low carbonation makes it feel thinner than it is. Very easy to drink, smooth and subtle.

Hazy yellow pour, nice sized white head. dusty, lemony, funky, earthy, leather, yeast, light oak flavors. Cool beer from a brewery I really like.
