Rhinegeist Seasonal Lineup, Cans, Anniversary Beer
The team at Rhinegeist recently revealed their three official seasonal beers for the warm weather months. Two are returning favorites while the third is a twist on one of their first recipes.
Fiction, a dry-hopped blonde Belgian Extra Pale Ale with an intense bouquet of lychee, kiwi and citrus.
Spike, a Crisp and Clean American Wheat Ale brewed with Cascade hops for a hint of citrus.
Pure Fury, an intensely hopped, yet restrained, tropical-fruit-forward American Pale Ale.
You may remember Spike as Spikelet when the brewery first launched. However, it disappeared fairly quickly as I don’t think the recipe ever turned out quite as they wanted. I had a pre-launch homebrew sample that was out of this world but the production was a little overly bitter. I haven’t had the revised Spike yet but hope to sample some soon.
Last, I can confirm that recipe for a special one-year anniversary beer has been constructed. I can’t share the details but expect to be in a style that the brewery is well known for. I would imagine there will be a great deal of fan fare around this one but keep your eyes peeled.
