COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The holidays are full of surprises and not all of them are welcome. Despite the seasonal pressures , we hope you enjoy the fermented surprises our elves have tucked away for the next 23 days (sorry to ruin the surprise), this first beer is full of rich Belgian flavour and pours a deep red due to the addition of beets. Welcome to the Snowcase.

DuffMan (10936) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Bottle. Hazy purplish pink, light pink head. Earthy beets, sweet and heavy, medicinal undertones. Gross.

3.4
ljthiessen (1540) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 14, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy reddish amber pour without much head. Aroma is earthy hops and subtle cooked beets. Taste is deceptively mild for the ABV, tastes like a mellow saison with beets. Interesting, and not half bad.

3.2
Brettsky06 (536) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 25, 2017
Bright red pour. Earthy aromas. Taste is earthy bitter hops. Definitely taste the beets as well. A little overpowering. Very interesting though

3.3
bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 21, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 2017.12.01 - Bottle #1 in the 2017 Phillips Snowcase. 7-3-6-3-13 3.3 Rating #2200 - 2015.12.01 - Bottle #1 in the 2015 Phillips Snowcase. Pours a clear pink. Aroma is of bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica. No seriously, this is like a beet root Belgian blonde. Taste is quite smooth,light wheat ale qualities, mild sweetness, herbal whiff. Not unpleasant but asks more questions than it answers. 7-4-7-3-14 3.5

northropfrye (3743) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Pink body white head. Floral sweet malt aroma. Belgian candy. Yeast. Spice maybe even a touch of cinnamon. Taste is sweet yeast with a bit of a dry watery finish. A bit earthly and floral. Nice beer. I don’t detect the beets other than in the colour.

3.7
cards04 (2952) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Pours a light pinkish red. Aromas of beets, pickled beets, mint, Belgian yeast. Nice mouthfeel...some nice warmth..sweetness and bitterness. Belgian notes and earthy beets. Quite good.

patricks110 (2843) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Love beets, love beer. Not in love with this beer. Pours a bright pink/red with a soapy of white head. Light carbonation. The nose is earthy, a bit floral and spicy with a pinch of grass. odd beer overall with a undertone of earthy, roots and dirt. Hmm. Alcohol is very well hidden.

2.8
sulawang (1217) - - DEC 3, 2015
Visual: Pours clear reddish orange, barely any head, ringed retention, lots and lots of very fast steady streams. Nose: sour acidity, beet rootiness in the background, mild funk (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp, thin viscosity, fizzy CO2 Mid-palate: thin-bodied, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) sweet liquid malt, subtle beetroot earthiness, almost salty Finish: lingering malt, mild palate rough finish. Summary: Is this really and 8%’er?? ABV is undeniably well hidden from start to finish, drinks more like a 5%. Beetroot is there in the mids but it doesn’t elevate the beer profile. Overall just an average drinkable brew, though not very inspiring being the 1st of 24.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clearish red colour with white head. Aroma is slightly earthy. Taste is bout the same. This beer is kinda boring except for the colour.
