Bottle shared with daje, Simonsen & edvard at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Very orange, hazy, thin white head. Smell of red beets, carrot, tart fruits. Light sweet, quite tart, moderate sour, alot of beets, quite refreshing. Very good idea to make a berlinerweisse with red beets. Lovely stuff

Pours red-tinged amber with a white head.
Nose shows earthy beetroot notes and lemon.
Flavours include more of the same with big acidity and some light fruit.
Pretty awesome and unorthodox.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with some pinkish hues with a finger of fizzy white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon with some malty notes. Taste is a lemony tartness with a malty sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. An interesting brew, but not really my style.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Won’t b the last time I have this. So beetrooty with a very pleasing juiciness to it. I really am digging this. Went down way too easily and has a tasty tartiness to finish. Fantastic

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small white head. Clear amber body with strong carbonation.
Vinegary fruity aroma with herbal red beet notes. Acidic fruity
red beet taste with rhubarb and vinegar notes. Thinnish body.
Mild, soft mouthfeel. Acidic fruity red beet aftertaste with
rhubarb notes. It’s not bad, but these flavours don’t work for
me. (0.6l bottle, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Strømmen.)
