I think this could be worked out as a German Alt or something like that. Might give Wyeast 1007 German Ale yeast a shot and ferment as low as you can.
You can alway buy a plastic blue bin and fill it up about half way with water and rotate frozen water bottles in and out of the water. Wrap an old towl around it to help wick up the cold water. That'll definitely keep it down around 65 at least. Also, another trick is to put a cap full of bleach in the water to keep anything from growing in it while your beer is fermenting.
