CiTRUST (Gin Barrel)
Taxman Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Today is a classy day because we’re gettin’ all kinds of fancy up in here with CiTRUST Gin Barrel-Aged Saison from Indiana’s Taxman Brewing.
But don’t worry. You don’t have to dress up.
This delightful Saison is made with fresh Meyer lemons (a sweeter, harder to find variety) and aged in barrels that once held a blend of craft Gins from multiple distilleries. So it tastes like a citrusy cocktail from a high-end speakeasy.
But it’s BEER. So you don’t have to do all the stupid crap you’d have to do at a cocktail bar. Like getting all gussied up to impress a bunch of people you don’t even know just so you can pay an arm and a leg for drinks.
Instead, you can wear jean shorts and your favorite tattered baseball cap. Then you and your buds can kick back while you appreciate the torrents of bright citrus and nuances of juniper, coriander, and oak in CiTRUST.
You don’t even have to put on a shirt!
Of course, if you DO have a black-tie event coming up, this ultra-limited Saison will fit in wonderfully there, too. Pour it into a cocktail glass, and everyone will think it’s a crafty take on a Gin Fizz that you’ve whipped up.
That is until you reveal that it comes from the World Beer Cup winners at Taxman.
They canned a mere 9 barrels worth of this brew, and fans from all over the Midwest lined up for the release. But don’t look for it at your local bottleshop — unless you trek over to the Hoosier State, even the fanciest beer bar you can find won’t have a drop of this nectar.
So next time someone suggests you go out for a cocktail, hand them a can of CiTRUST and tell them you’d rather stay in. Then you can both slip your shoes off, grab a seat on the porch, and revel in this ultra-smooth, cocktail-like brew.
Because with a fridge full of CiTRUST, you don’t have to dress up to feel fancy.
