3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours a hazy reddish gold with a thin head. Aroma is pepper, tomato, dill, and pretty much a lighter version of a bloody mary. Flavor is pleasant, tomato and spices evident. You really have to enjoy a bloody mary to like this beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a murky hazed orang reddish with a thin dissipating head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, green peppers, tomato, herbs spices, basil, bloody mary ets with flowers and grass mixed in. Flavor is moderate sweet, more tomato juice, bloody mary, herbs, garlic, basil, vege and celery stick. Finish is a bit rough but for how much I dotn really care for bloody mary’s I still dot find this horrible. Doesn’t really work, but still not horrible.

Bottle thanks to Styles. Very interesting beer. Hard to rate, but here it goes. Pours pinkish red. Nose and taste of celery, fresh tomatoes and spiced peppercorn. Almost like drinking cold pasta sauce. Odd beer, but much better than the rating or description suggest.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 Bottle. Pours a reddish hued cloudy color with a slight white head. Haahaha, the smell is just like a bloddy mary with spice. This beer is very interesting. It’s very much like a tomato vs. spice forward bloddy mary that is a little watered down. Pepper, tomato, and celery dominate both the flavor and the nose. Personally, if I want a Bloody Mary, I get the standard with vodka but as a beer that is trying to mimic a bloody, it does a really good job. Probably just a touch too much pepper for me. Great morning beer but not sure if I could ever drink more than one. Medium mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from deyholla, thanks Derek! Pours a cloudy, reddish plum tomato colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is tomato, peppercorn, celery salt, pepper, some florals, and earthy caramels. Flavor is similar. Not overly spicy, but plenty of unique flavors. Plenty of tomato and peppercorn with a lightly sweetened wheat maltiness. Some more earth, florals, and celery salt before this finishes dry with lots of tomato and more spicy peppers. A hint of horse radish too with a light, earthy bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and carbonation. Overall, a very unique beer. I’m not quite sure if I was a huge fan of this, but I definitely enjoyed it. Interesting...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Reddish orange pour, more focus on the red. Some offwhite head. Definitely different looking. Aroma of fresh tomatoes. Some pepercorn and other spice I can’t identify but I’ll assume is the horseradish working with the dill. Fresh leafy vegetables also. Flavor is first and foremost tomatoes. I don’t get tomato juice, though, like I expected. Just lots of fresh tomatoes. I detect some mild spice from the peppercorns and horseradish. Medium body, don’t get any alcohol at all. Rough to try to drink more than one of these.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of deyholla. Pours a nice reddish amber pour, touches of copper, well hazed, a frothy offwhite head laces ok. Aromas are a big dose of coconut flakes, mandarin orange, tomato, bloody mary, really weird. Wheat and flaked wheat malts, touches of iron, coriander, blood orange. Weird. Initial is medium to lighter bodied, very wit-like, blood orange and coriander pair with the typical flaked wheat, big tomato pulp, some coconut. Like a Bloody Mary/Wit hybrid for me with no real orange, just some weird coriander and flaked wheat. I drank this down, it certainly was interesting

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Modest Bloody Mary taste. Lots of "floaties", which I enjoy. Reddish amber color---but only if you add the sediment from the bottom of the bottle. Unique, and better than I expected!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very little if any head. Murky reddish clay in color. Aroma of tomatoes, peppers, overall fresh garden smell. Taste definitely fresh garden tomato taste with slight peppers stretching to find the horseradish on my palate. Interesting beer definitely a must to try once. Have never tasted anything like it, for what it is, it truly is an accomplishment.
