Thanks to fiver29 for this random bottle from a brewery I’ve yet to try: always a good thing. 750ML bottle, 2013 vintage, split with my wife while watching “Finding Nemo”. Great movie.

The first glass is clear light orange, the second very slightly clouded, with the last ounce left in the bottle for research purposes. Very close to being still. Lovely odor of green apple, lemon, choked-out citrus, with a nice shot of tartness. I like where this is going.

Rivertown Lambic is a liquid I could slip into my wife’s drunk club (sorry, “Book Club”) as a white wine & get nary an upturned nose. Tastes like a nice white without the alcoholic bite: wine spritzer, white grape juice, de-bittered lemon, soft green apple. Finishes with umilled grain and citrus: the tartness crowns briefly and gently, with a side helping of dry mouth. You can tell this is a low ABV drink, as it washes all the trail dust from the my cube away in great big gulps. Are you supposed to gulp lambic?

This is a lambic for the fourteen and younger crowd, approachable, easy-going. I could see this as a Middle Ages table beer when the water was full of cholera. Good.

Very good tartness, citrus with a pleasant funk. Excellent beer.

Vintage 2010: capped and corked

Appearance: Opens with a loud pop when I extracted the cork (I was expecting a foamer but that didn't happen) and pours a cloudy honey color with a spumous head that fades somewhat quickly leaving a few patches of lace

Smell: Lactic crabapple, with pear, oak, Sauvignon Blanc grape, grass, barnyard funk and hay

Taste: Oaky and dry, up front, with a significant lactic element; crabapple, pear and Sauvignon Blanc grape tones building; the tartness builds, into the middle, bringing barnyard funk and hay tones; the finish reveals a nice blend of the fruit and funky tartness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not many reviews of the 2010 vintage here and perhaps none of them have this much age on it; wow, was I impressed with how this bottle has matured; would be hard to pick this out if one were asked to identify the American lambic from a group of Belgians
