BEETS!!!!! Poured a light oranges red color with aromas of beers, earth, light spur wheat. Flavors are earthy beets, very nice beets, but I like beers, light wheat and rltsrtness in the aftertaste, light beet juice left on the lips, yeah this isn’t your average joe.

750ml bottle shared by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Pours fruit punch red with a pink head. Aroma is strong beet, sour melon. Flavor is beet juice up front with a lemony sour wheat finish. I guess this is what I would expect a beet Berliner to taste like, not that great. Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Poured from bottle thanks AirforceHops ruby pink color with a thin off white head. Aromas of sour lemon slightly briney and lots of beets. Taste follows aroma. Kudos fot the try but its just not my jam. AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2017
750 ml bottle in a trade with HuskerTan. Pours a purple/ reddish color. Aroma is purely red beet purée. Well, this is what the Brewer was going for. mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Slightly sour lemon tartness in the finish mixed with a mega ton of red beet juice. It kind of reminds me of when I was a kid and my grandma would put warm red beets out at supper time. The body is light and crisp with a vegetable finish. Just a way too much beet juice in here. Thanks for the opportunity Tanner, it was very fun to try.
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 750mL bottle. Pours a vivid red with minimal head. Aroma is beets with a hint of acidity. Taste is big earthy beets with a good acidity to bring it together. Mouthfeel is medium with minimal carbonation. Overall this is an interesting twist on a berliner weisse. I enjoyed one glass, but couldn’t drink more than that in one sitting.

Putting tart, acidic Berliner Weiss with beets sounds like a totally weird pairing but it really works. If it’s true that this is the beer that cemented Michael Crane as a master of funk, then I can see why. There’s a lot of beet influence in here. That’s evident right away from the red coloring and the earthy vegetal notes. Yet, that citrusy, lively sour wheat is still given a chance to make an appearance. Yes, it’s a sour beer. Yes, it has a lot of vegetable-infused flavor. Still, it’s a balanced and well-rounded brew. It’s flat-out well-done. RobertDale (6474) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 6, 2016
On tap. Comes a pale red with a small pink head. Aroma of beets and earth. Taste is beets, citrus, and earth. Interesting and unique in a good way. HuskerTan (2202) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - DEC 4, 2016
A- Beets, slightly sour.
A- Dark pink color, slightly hazy liquid, minimal pink head.
T- Beet juice, sour, slightly briney.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, tart finish.
O- What a unique and tasty beer! Only had one beet beer before this that was ho-hum. This was fantastic. Tasted like pickled beets and smelled just like them too. Brought back many memories of growing up eating hot beets at dinner. Somehow this is a beer I could drink often and not just a novelty. Really well done. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle. Pink beer with a pink head. Earth and beet aroma with light tartness. Sour flavor with beets. Medium bodied. Sourness and beets linger with light lemon. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Points for creativity. This thing is definitely a beet beer. Pours deep red, thin head. Beet in the aroma and especially the aftertaste. Courtesy of Josh and Brandon in 2016.
