Rheingeist does it again. They continually produce high quality excellent tasting brews. This one has a great nose and fine taste. I found it unique to any beer I have had in recent memory. That's hard to do in today's sometimes flooded market of options. Well done Rhinegeist.

I'm sharing a bottle with my neighbor. It poured a clear amber with thin white head that did not leave much lace. The scent was slightly sweet. The taste was nicely balanced between sweet start and bitter finish. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Rhinegeist Brewery - Andromeda. 5.7% ABV. 22oz bottle split between two snifters.

Look: Translucent burn orange body, retaining a two finger white head.

Smell: Juicy orange and peach, with some light earthy hops and fresh cut grass.

Feel: Very light and smooth body with a hint of carbonation to balance.

Taste: Some bitter hops and grass/wheat up front. Has some minor fruit sweetness behind the grass, but is drowned out by a wheaty cracker like aftertaste.

Overall: I didn't pick up nearly as much fruit on the palate compared to the aroma, with the earthiness dominating. The wheaty cracker aftertaste reminded me a lot of New Belgium Fat Tire.

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. The pour is clear and bright orange with 2 fingers of solid white head that shows good retention and slowly dissolves down to a clumpy lacing. The nose has a lot of juicy citrus notes. I get oranges, pineapples, lemons, and grapefruit.

Medium-light body with a slightly thin feel and a sharp, hoppy flavor. Slight graininess up front, then grapefruit, lemons, resin, and hemp. Not very well-balanced. Acrid and sharply bitter. Resin flavors linger a bit on the finish. The Galaxy hops show their citrus notes well, but I don't get enough sweetness from the malt. I think the brewer should have just made a full-fledged IPA with ample malt to support all the hops.

On-tap 2/18/2017 at Flynn’s in Mansfield, MA, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty malt character. The earthy and grassy hops presence provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer too drink for a while.

Had on-tap in a shaker pint at a Toledo bar.
Brassy color, pretty clear,the slightest haze.
Nose is citrusy and nectarine-like. A little bit of wafting cat pee.
Flavor is orange peel bitter, gingery, perfumey - kinda weird. Not much malt makes it through.
Relatively thin body leaves a slippery numbness on the tongue.
Nice horizontal rows of lacing.
A rather odd brew.
