Rhinegeist: Bubbles Rosé Ale

We know what you’re thinking: “An ale on a cider blog?!” While it is true that Bubbles is not a cider, it does contain apples, so we’re considering it an honorary cider — just for today though. We don’t want to get completely carried away 😉

Overall Thoughts and Rating

Julia:

I was pleasantly surprised by Rhinegeist’s Rosé Ale. It is a refreshing, perfect-for-summer drink. The sweetness upfront from the apple and peach is counterbalanced by the tartness of the cranberry at the sip’s close. My only quibble is that I would have preferred it to be slightly drier, but that said, I still enjoyed it.

Ramsay:

Overall, I liked Bubbles from Rhinegeist. Even though it is an ale, it really felt like drinking a cider due to all of the fruit notes. I liked the tartness from the cranberry, as it helped to reign in the sweetness of the apple and peach. It is also very light, which makes this a great pick for summer, especially at a BBQ.
