Beer- Peach DoDo
Style – Gose with Peaches
IBUs – 12
This German Gose is bright and frisky, tart and saline, and dances on the palate with punches of peach. Thirst quenching beyond all imagination, Peach Dodo is the finest of liquids for a beach picnic or for making history.
Jumping into the trendy Gose style headfirst, Rhinegeist has knocked this one out of the park… Dodo pours into the glass with a light golden color and a thin, very quickly dissipating head on top of the glass.
Aromas of this beer will smack you in the nose immediately, with a very distinct lactic aroma sitting forefront, clean and punchy…it immediately has the effect of kicking my salivary glands into overdrive in anticipation of what is to come.
Then to taste the beer is to open up your tastebuds to something they’ve been craving…immediately with the first sip you’re greeted with that familiar lactic punch…only this time it’s followed with a lingering sweet peach flavor that cleans it up in the finish. There is a nice dough-like breadiness behind it all that just holds it together, keeping the taste profile from going off the rails… restraint in the best way possible.
This is a killer beer from Rhinegeist, and shows the range that they can do…I cannot wait to see more sour offerings from them in the future, this is on point.
