4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle in to a snifter. Deep ruby / pomegranate color. Head is light quick, tiny bubbles, initially foamy but dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet, acidic, beets are not as in your face as I expected based on reviews Iíve read (not necessarily a bad thing). Taste is sour, slightly sweet, raspberry notes and again, beets are subtle. Flavor dies off a little too quick. I wish the sour would last longer or that there was a little more sweetness to balance it out. It finishes earthy, smooth and mildly beety. Light body, fairly dry, tangyness leaves a medium coat in the mouth. Overall this is a great beer. Very interesting for sure. Iíd say you have to try it at least once. Will I buy it again? Probably. One interesting thing Iíd like to point out is that I typically get heart burn from sours but this one seems to be a little easier to take.

On tap at The Burgundian. Pours ruby with two finger head (beet color!). Smell is tart and fruity. Taste is dirty, slightly tart, and an earthy rootiness to it, not very beet forward. Interesting.

Flabbergastion. Appearance of cran-raspberry juice, almost no head, aroma of tomato, beet, and a familiar unidentifiable pungency. Flavors are an intersection of a bloody mary and a gueuze. This beer makes me laugh in a humble way. Friggin awesome.

Growler. Cheers t! Pours a murky bright ruby garnet with no head or lace. Big canned beet nose with a little bit of green olive. Watery light slightly oily body. Beets and green olives with a little pickle juice on the mid palate. Sourness just comes on with a rush, not very integrated.

Smells like beets and sour. Funky stuff, lactic. Pours pink purple with an off pink head. Flavors hella strong of fucking beets vegetables and sour. Sounds unpleasant but it works. Esp if you like fucking beets. Merry christmas motherfuckers.
