4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber. Pours hazy orange-red (the color of beets, really) with a medium collapsing pinkish-white head. Aroma consists of doughy bread, beets, vinegar (pickled beets?), earth, totally unique. Taste is sweet and beety with a dry bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation. This beer is awesome. I know others will find it weird and/or gimmicky, maybe even gross, but I love experimental beers and this has that in spades.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
THOUGHTS: Very unusual. At first I thought it tasted nothing like a beet and then all of a sudden it changed to almost all beets. And that process happened over and over with nearly every sip. Both sweet and earthy. An unusual but pleasant balance.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light to medium pinkish red with a large, pinkish white head that mostly but slowly diminished. The aroma had moderate to heavy candy sugar; surprisingly beets, vegetable in a good way, earthiness, and dirt but in a good way. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly acidc; while the finish was heavily sweet, and light to moderately bitter and acidic. There was candy sugar, earthy hops, actual beets and hints of citurs. The medium body went down easy and was a little dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly alcoholic finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beautiful, bright pink beer with tints of orange. The nose is almost entirely sweet, pulpy beets and and some dirt. It is super sweet in the mouth, and very silky. That texture is very satisfying, with a light dry/bitter finish. They actually killed it with this one.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. This poured pretty much red alnd had a beige head with pink tinges in the bubbles. The nose showed beets along with citrus and floral hops. The flavor was of fruit and floral/citrus hops along with the beets. Light bitter finish. Really unique and very tasty beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Mix of malt and beet, something I don’t usually associate with beer. Aroma is sweet malt. Almost red as a red wine. Thin white head. Beet in the flavour. An interest mix

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours very ruddy - almost like cherry with a slightly off-white (pinkish?) head. Aroma is citrus and light pitted fruit. And beet! Med body or more. Flavor is very lightly beet with a lot of light roast malt and some citrus hop. There’s a peppery/spicy aspect hitting the old mucosa. Very nice, though quite different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Saddle Rock in Wenatchee, WA. This brew pours a slightly hazy maroon-amber color with a medium pinkish-white head that dissipates quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy malt, wheat and slight grassy hops. Medium body with flavors of earth and beets plus a touch of hop bitterness. The finish is black cherries and beets. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle - pours clear scarlet red, with huge fizz fluff head, lasting with real cool lacing. Aromas of yeasty goodness, spice, soap, cherries, grain, and hay. Taste is mild, with cereal, spice, light dried fruit, beets towards the end, with dry bitterness, not biting, at the finish. Medium to lighter bodied with lively carbonation. Kinda funky aftertaste.
