Beer added by: beesy on 11-02-2013

Inside this bottle you will find the fruits of a collaboration between Rivertown Brewing Co, The Rookwood, and Smooth Ambler Spirits. A delicious blend of Wild Ale, spices, and citrus, all aged in a Gin barrel, we hope this fine beverage will call to mind the classic Gin cocktail that inspired it.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like tart citrus, green apples, and some wood. It tastes like tart citrus (a lot of lime), green apples, gin, and some funk. It's nice and tart, with a bit of sweetness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth with low/moderate carbonation. It's easy enough to drink. I think it's a good overall brew, I wouldn't mind trying this again in the future. Hopefully Rivertown will make another batch of this! $11.99 a bottle.

Poured out of a bomber into one of my tulip glasses, this beer pours a mainly hazy/cloudy light to medium golden color with a bit of a copper hue. has a head that is 1/4 inch thick when first poured that settles pretty quickly to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass along with some little spots of surface foam. Not much lacing here. Aromas consist of a crisp, zesty, sharp citrus, that gives way to a nice oak hint followed by some green apple sourness and a bit of musty, yeasty funk. The gin flavor is certainly present upfront with the aforementioned sharp citrus zest notes that are on the sour side as far as citrus flavor is concerned. Followed by a nice crisp tart green apple sour note that gives way to a nice hint of oak and a good yeasty barnyard funk must. The flavors sure balance and gel quite nicely as the beer warms a bit. Has a clean, dry finish. Also has a slightly crisp, mainly smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in a good way. A very interesting take on this style.

Thanks to Lauren for the share.
My first from this brewery.

Golden-yellow pour, slightly hazy (more so towards the end of the bottle), with a fizzy white head that dissipated almost completely; minimal lacing; Champagne-like bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Crisp, zesty citrus in the aroma, light notes of juniper, and hints of oak. The taste was pretty nice, even for me, not being a fan of gin at all. Lemon and lime zest, with a light and crisp tartness, apple, juniper berries, some funky yeast notes and crackery malts in the background. Light-medium body, prickly carbonation. A pretty interesting and enjoyable beer overall.

650ml bottle poured into a Teku glass
A: Slightly hazy orange, no head to speak of
S: Lemon, sour grape, a bit of earth/spice
T: Sour grape, gooseberry, lemon, lemongrass and spice
M: Light-bodied with a nice acidity
O: I've had more complex sour ales (from Russian River), but stylistically this hits the nail on the head and is mouthwatering/refreshing with its acidity
