For a rose wine cider it is actually pretty tasty.
Left my mouth dry after two of them.
Won't be trying them again and the 4 in the fridge will probably be in there the rest of the fall until someone comes and needs a fall pick me up.

Can. No way this is beer. It tastes all cider. I guess they're muddying the water as to what this actually is. I call bullshit. It is pink, it is sweet, and it is cider. I wish I could give "N/A" as a rating. You get all 3's.

First dubbed as a rosé cider, the Cidergeist relinquish control of their apple cider and it has strolled onto the ale side of the brewhouse. Still, its generous use of peach, cranberry and apple lay its fingerprints all over this Rhinegeist summertime brew.

Bubbles pours the expected sparkling rosé wine color, steaming with ample carbonation and topping the glass with a stark white froth. Aromas of cider and wine intertwine on the nose with those additional orchard and berry fruits adding a rounded scent to the ale. Early flavors are of hard candy, light honey and simple fructose charm.

A consistent flavor travels across the middle palate with the taste of cranberry and peach making a slightly bigger mark on taste as the tastebuds acclimate to the playful acidity and the ale warms to reveal more secrets. Trending tart rather than hoppy, the ale finishes crisp, clean and decidedly macintosh apple-like.

A faint musty fruit flavor emits from the finish and carries the slight after palate of damp balsa. Clean but retaining a sweetness even late, the bubbles of the beer pop off of the tongue and lays a light carbonic bite on the finish, lightening the body and ushering in a sense of drinkability.

A: Pours a clear medium rosé in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate pink + ruby red colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy pinkish white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of apple (similar to a cider) with light aromas of sweet peach and light to moderate aromas of tart cranberries and hints of wheat malts.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of fermented apple cider with some light flavors of sweet peaches. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of tart cranberries. Minimal amounts of bitterness with a light lingering tartness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with a hint of dryness and acidic prickliness in the finish.

O: Formerly a cider, now marketed as a Rosé Ale... definitely still lots of apple + peach presence more reminiscent of a Boone's Farm kind of apple wine. Super easy to drink, enjoyable, and refreshing - perfect for the 70+ degree February day here in NC. I could easily have a couple of these - had been putting off drinking it because I did not think I was going to like it (wife brought it back for me from a trip).

On tap @ Squirrel Cage Cafe, Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, Pa. Served in pint glass, little to no foam/head
lovely fruit punch hue, very fruity on first sip. Not much aroma noticeable due to smokers at the bar. At half glass the cider and tart after taste came through. Very refreshing on a 90 degree day. Would not make this my go to beverage, but enjoyable. Would be a perfect alternative for non beer drinkers at a picnic. And with a name like Bubbles, who wouldn't want to try it?
