COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
• The intrinsic celebration of beer and the giant red berry cloaked within piper nigrum, apium graveolens dulce, armoracia rusticana, and anethum graveolens
• Beer Type: Specialty Beer fermented with Roma tomatoes and spiced with tellicherry peppercorns, celery seed, fresh horseradish and dill

Bloody Beer is a lighter bodied beer with an appealing ruby red glow. Fermented with Roma tomatoes, and spiced with dill, horseradish, peppercorns and celery seed, a prominent aroma of spicy tomato juice emits from the beer. The intense initial tomato flavor is followed by a lingering finish that allows each additional ingredient a chance to resonate on the palate. When slightly warm, this 2009 Great American Beer Festival silver medal winner’s magnitude of flavors can be fully appreciated.

Bloody Beer was beer number 8 of 13 from our 2007 Imperial Beer Series and it was the 290 batch of beer ever brewed at Short’s.

auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2008
750mL Bottle. Heavy dill and peppercorn aroma. Savory, like no other beer. Fragrant and flowery, edging towards pickles. Pours a hazed ochre orange-red, with a soapy fringe in off-white. Wow. Peppercorns, tomato, and dill amalgamate in the mouth for a really classic bloody mary presentation. Light hops come in the back. There’s an awful lot of dill in there. The bloody mary flavors meld well with malt and hops, but the spices get a little out of control. Good body, nice balance and good flavors, but it gets a little weird. Novel idea that came across pretty well, but doesn’t make the most consistently drinkable beer as the bloody mary flavors get a little old.

Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, dill, and other spices as well as blood. The flavor is spicy combined with notes of dill, cellery, and tomato.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy deep golden with a rough, off-white head. Rather enticing celery aroma - although I actually hate celery.... Medium-bodied, spicy, peppery with celery accents and a discreet whiff of tomato. Dry and bitter finish. Very unusual but still quite drinkable. 311008

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Shorts smagning med klubben. Uklar orange med lille råhvidt skum. Det minder lidt om en bloody Mary. Tomatjuice m. tabasco, peber som stikker på tungen. Er blød og fyldig, godt krydret med medium karbonering.

Shorts tasting with The Club +a few. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Smells of hops with peppers. Quite dry with peppary aromas and some tomatoes. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Long bitter finish with a hint of vegetables. Surprisingly good.

Christian (13932) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2008
Muddy amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by celery, with celery-like herbal notes, a little pepper and more celery. Flavour is spicy and herbal, but any beer characteristics are lost in celery.

thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle @ Kolding Shorts Tasting, 18.09.08.
Pours a great, dark golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has dill, chili and tomato. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light tomato and very spicy. Not fantastic.
