look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Having this at The Lackman in downtown Cincinnati, OH. Served in a pint glass.

A: A hazy copper color. Some head retention, but a thin line.

S: Very little hop aroma, nor malt (yes, I know - how can that be?). The primary smell is that of the yeast they use, and to be honest it isn't pleasant. This isn't a "typical" dubble aroma of banana and clove with a bready yeast back ground, this is like you're home brewing and take a whiff of the yeast just before you pitch.

T: With all the yeast in the aroma, you don't get much of it in the taste. A very dry hop flavor, slightly tangy citrus notes, with a light crystal malt as a side car. The finish is very crisp and the aftertaste dissipates quickly. I'm not familiar with the Motueka hop they use in this, but I have met the Nelson Sauvin hop and I think this beer reigns true to taste of others before it.

M: starts off thin, gets only very slightly bready, then finishing dry, crisp, and clean with hint of malt.

Overall: I think this tastes okay, but I don't know if I'd recommend this one to a friend. I'm not expecting a huge hop bomb or anything, I just think this is slightly dull. This is the first beer of Rhinegeist, but based on other beer reviews I'm hoping they get more impressive from here.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pale yellow that is quite translucent. a half finger of bright white head.

S: Fresh bread and yeast. Just the slightest bit of funk. Dank earth with a slight floral component. Not much going on here.

T: The taste is full of yeast. Sweet caramel malt. Freshly baked doughy bread. The yeast adds a little kick. Good citrus. bright lemon and a little bit of orange zest. Floral hops with more citrus finish this brew off.

M: Very easy to drink. nicely carbonated.

O: This is definitely an easy drinking beer with some good belgian yeast flavors. The hops arent huge but what is there is nice. I would definitely have another /85

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look - golden clear color slight lacing not much bobbles.
Smell - Apple citrus smell, very unexpected.
Taste - taste like a slightly hoppy cider with a Belgium malt twist
Feel - medium carbonation with a light body.
Overall - not much of a Belgium beer more like hoppy cider. That's the only reason I have it ranked lower than a 4
