The appearance is the best aspect to this beer. Clear deep red with a pinkish head. Otherwise there is nothing more to write. Had a slight sour flavour about it but that was subtle. Bit flat this one. Achieved the look but no depth.

rating from backlog, a strange and surprising beer given that the beetroot was easily detectable, points for uniqueness.

More fool me, I ordered this pint and forgot that I had had a chat with Stu about six weeks before and he mentioned something about beetroot. When the pint was put in front of me it was reddish-pink with a pink head. Its aroma and flavour veered toward gooseberry and kumquat, not toward the bleeding red amazeballs that the sight would suggest. As a pint it was fresh, tasty and quaffable and were it not for the full menu of beers on at Poms, I would have happily gone back for seconds. Apart from the colour of the pint, I found it a little staid, but that said, it beats the shot out of not having it.

4oz pour at Maxís Hop Fest 2013. Pours a bright purple with some cloudy, pink head. Nose is mild, earthy, sweet, malt, bread. Flavor is a little better but still muddled, earthy, orange, lemon, malt. Medium bodied. Simple without much happening.

some yeast esters, a little fruity. a hint of spiciness. pours out a clear bright red -- beet red! the color of clear cranberry juice. a reasonable pink foamy head falls to lacing quickly. its got a touch of sweetness up front then quickly to a bitter bite that lasts well into the aftertaste. effervescent, prickly carbonation. thereís almost a heat finishing bitterness. i love the color!

Tap at Norfolk. Looks awesome. Reddy-pink with a sticky off pink head. Nothing amazing or stand out in this beer but everything works fine. You get hints of the beetroot but they take a back seat to banana. Very easy going and pretty straight forward but not a bad beer by any means. Refreshing stuff

This is the pinkest beer I ever had! However it has no discernable taste profile or even a stand-out note of any kind. As it get warmer there is a hint of perhaps banana, but itís hard to put a finger on it. Yeastie Boys make some seriously nice beer this isnít one of them.

Aroma is of a typical wheat beer. I often use beetroot for juicing and know that it usually adds a very strawberry flavour to my juice, so I was surprised that the strawberry flavour in this beer takes a back seat to the flavour of bananas, in fact, if youíre not looking for it, you probably wonít notice it. Normally, Iím not a fan of bananas in my beer, but this really is an exception. It actually tastes good. Couple of extra points for having a go and pulling it off.
