Great clean cider, the rose undertone comes through but doesn't interfere with the balance.

i hate that i like this so much. rhinegeist is pretty garbage in general, and the idea of them making a sparkling rose cider (or whatever) with cranberry just makes my stomach turn. but this is delicious--a bit sweet and fruity up front, with a lovely carbonation, and a zippy, dry finish that leaves you very refreshed and wanting more. fuck this beer, but i really like it.

A - Copper-red body, clear, with a thin pinkish white head, minimal lacing.

S - All sorts of fruit, from expected grape, to cranberry and a touch of stone fruit, over a moderately sour hit.

T - The nose continues in the taste, but the flavor narrows a bit, into a tart cranberry note and red grapes. The middle offers something slightly vegetal, but the close swerves back to tartness. The fruit is strong with this one, and malts really take a back seat to that fruit.

M - Brisk, clean and with a lingering scrubbing acidity in the close.

O - Not sure this fits easily into any category. That said, it is tasty and a pleasant drinker.

Totally NOT a beer. I mean, the can even says "Cidergeist." Nonetheless, this is a pretty tasty beverage. Ive tried several rose themed sours and they all seem to be slightly off in the sense that actual rose is pretty sweet. Since this is a cider, it avoids the tartness of a sour beer, or the saltiness of a gose and delivers a sweeter, more true to form fake rose cocktail in a can. I could kill about 8 of these while floating around in an inner tube in a pool.

I was on a recent short road trip up to Boston to see the Red Sox play the KLE Indians at Fenway & while I was in town, I did some shopping, natch. I stayed at a hostel in Everett & went to the Total Wine & More in town where I found this one, among many others. I have to admit that I was a little surprised to find it on here, but it is listed as an "Ale", so fair dinkum. It makes a nice addition to The CANQuest (tm) in any event.

From the CAN: "Cidergeist Cincy Made"; "A bright, dry, and lithe Rosé Ale with apple, peach and cranberry, for tartness and blush. Bubble erupts with effervescence and evanescence."

I was very curious to Crack! this one open & I followed up with an inverted Glug. Well, chalk one up for truth in advertising - it effervesced with about two fingers of fizzy, bubbly, deep-pink head that was highly evanescent, quickly fizzing its way out of existence. Color was a pretty Pink-Amber (SRM = N/A), what they were referring to as "Rosé" and "Blush". How pretty, especially given its NE-quality clarity! Nose was redolent with apples and cranberries, much like Ocean Spray CranApple that I used to drink as a kid. Mouthfeel was kind of thin and watery. The taste was very tart and dry with the apple & cranberry combination easy to identify, although the peach seemed to be overwhelmed. It was quite fruity, which is what I expect in the style. That said, it was more like a Cider than an Ale. Finish was very dry, but also quite fruity and refreshing. It made for an intersting interlude, but one would probably satiate me. YMMV.
