When we were in Hawaii, we did a hike to a waterfall and there was a stand about a half mile down the road that sold drinking coconuts. Val decided that she wanted one because they were supposed to be “ice cold.” They were heavy and super warm, so she took one sip and then handed me the coconut. Hopefully this beer tastes better than that coconut.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our Mission…Brew quality, craft beer using the freshest ingredients, state of the art brewing processes and sustainable packaging to deliver a distinctive craft beer experience. The Rivertowne Beer Concept…The Rivertowne Beer concept was born in 2002 with the opening of Rivertowne Inn. Rivertowne Brewing Company initial production began in 2007 with the conceptualization of the Rivertowne Pour House, a local microbrewery and pub in Monroeville, PA. In 2009, we released three bottled varieties that were well received in the market. After 2 years, market demand prompted us to begin plans to open our own state of the art production facility.”
Random: I had this on tap at The Pour House in Pennsylvania.
The beer poured with a finger of loose, pure white head. It dissipated quickly, but only left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and lemon-juice yellow with lots of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with pineapple, coconut and citrus as well. There was wheat too. The taste was very tropical and had a lot of pineapple and coconut. The wheat came through next. The body was on the lighter side with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with pineapple. This was a great beer that I’m going to look for this Summer. Unfortunately, this was the only time that I’ve ever seen this beer out, so hopefully I find it again this year.
