1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Drunk after it had some time in the botytle which made it more piny than I expected. The vegetal qualities here aren’t pleasant and unfortunately they colour a firmn structure which deserves better.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the fantastic Bergen tasting crew with such stars as ClubGonzo, Inbreak and Palme, and the mighty StoreMy. What an aweful start on such a great tasting evening! Pours a clear red colour with a small pink head, like a red lemonade or something. Expected aroma of beetroot, but with some earth, basement and potato/potato starch. Beet roots also dominates the flavour along with earth, sour roots, and radishes. Silky and extremely slick mouth feel. A new type of brew for me, but not a very good one. Too many aromas and flavours that should never be in a beer, and it get worse for every sip.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Pours a mindblowing beet-red body - really scared me this color! It also has a thin small quickly sidesticking head. The aroma has strong cellar tones, surprisingly hints of chocolate/cocoa and hints of good old canning. It’s really flat and has a thin and watery texture. It tastes a bit like earthy un-treated beets. At first really unpleasing, but I managed to finish the glass. Almost no bitterness. Way out on the crazy-scale this "beer"! 13.04.2012

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) Pours a hazy dark pink body with a small white head. Nose is canned aspargus, cellar must and hints of earth. Taste is earthy, musty tones with stinging bitter hints of grass. Weird, and not too good.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Peckham’s Union Square. It pours bright red, with a thin pink head. The nose is all about beetroot and earth. The taste is beetroot, earth, gravel, turnip, grass, plastic and wood, with a dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Too thin. Too weird. Drain pour.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light red colour and light head disappears quickly. Aroma of unwashed raw beetroot that isn’t particluarly appetising. Has an unusual earthy flavour with no real distinguishing hop or malt character. Interesting but not great.
