COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer with beet juice color.
Wacko is the liquid song of summer: Crisp like the morning, cool like the evening and quenching all day long. Pop the top and set your summer loose. Wacko is a delicious summer beer with a big malty aroma, a subdued hop bite and a clean, slightly sweet finish.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2009
(12oz bottle, BBE 7/09) Minimal white head atop hazy orange-red body. Aroma is moderately sweet, passion fruit, rose. Taste is medium sweet, fruity seltzer water. Seltzer especially strong in the finish. Light body, light effervescence, some crispness.

12oz bottle–pours a dissipating white head and orange/red color. Aroma is vegetal, grainy. Taste is sweet grain, sugary wet cardboard. Awkward. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for sharing.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pour copper with a slight beige head. Light malty aroma; virtually no hop aroma. Malty in a lightly roasted way. Rather clean. Not much hop. That works tho. It was 101 degs today, and this is working with that.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 Pours a charming reddish hue. Very slight, pure white head. The flavor is like...it’s trying to taste fruity but it doesn’t quite get there, and it left me a bit unsatisfied. Very smooth with mild and bitter bite towards the end. I would opt for different Magic Hat beer over the Wacko in the future.

Tmoney99 (10404) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle sample at Party Source. Poured a clear red color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate red beet and spice aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Refreshing summer brew.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2009
A reddish pink ale with a thick white head. Light sweet beet aromas, candy sugar, fruity esters. In mouth, a rather light crisp beer, with a bit of beets and rhubarb, overall, light and boring. On tap at Blue Tusk, July 31 2009.

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours ruby/copper with a large, frothy white head, medium-long retention with fair to good lacing. Aroma is average malt (meal, cereal, straw), light hops (spicy) and faint fruit notes. Flavor is heavy malt and not much else. The flavor kind of falls apart and there is not much to this beer; maybe the beet juice color is to distract the average person from the flavor. Light body, low warmth, medium/low warmth and a dry finish.

Reddish. Poured at Philly airport. Smells bad. Tastes bad. It’s bad. Really bad. Skip it.
