This could be a gateway brew - a gateway to cider? Or maybe it really is just cider. That's what it feels like.

It pours a pale rose color (as advertised) with a tiny bit of fizz. The aroma is a dirty warning, more like bad wine than beer or cider. The taste is what I imagine cider drinks taste like (I may have tried some but I rarely would drink one, so what would I know). It's pretty big and sour, and has a depth that I doubt the ciders have. I would prefer it with more ale character.

Only recommended as a sour cider-like novelty.

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.

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.

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.

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