On tap at The Bruery

A - Pours a beautiful dense pinkish red color, great coloring for Valentines day. Fluffy white head with almost no lacing.

S - Smells of veggies and sugars.

T - Interesting taste here. Earthy, oaky and to me a nice little finish of flowers (probably the Rose Petals).

M - The mouthfeel wasn't really there, it was kind of thick with minimal carbonation.

D - One glass is enough for me. Interesting and experimental for sure! It was not a bad beer by any means, but I just hope I can find a large group of people to share this growler with.

Reviewed from notes

Beer served in a small snifter, beer is cloudy, whitish haze and a red beer, pink, big white head of small bubbles, bubbles are sort of pink, interesting.

Smells like flowers, mild oak, sugar / caramel. Odd mix of aromas.

Beer is really sweet, a little powdery on the finish, very floral on the palate, like drinking rose pedals and caramel. Odd beer but overall an interesting one. I would cautiously have this again.

Had on-tap at Rattle N Hum in Manhattan, NY on 6/29/11.
Review taken from notes.

A - This beer pours a beautiful ruby red color. It has a very thin white head on it. The head left behind just a little bit of lace on the glass.

S - It smells sweet, fruity, and floral. It has a sweet candied quality to it. There are also some scents of roasted malt, fruit, and some vanilla.

T - The taste starts off with some roasted malt flavor. There is a big caramel sweetness presence, as well as some wood and vanilla. I am also getting a nice bit of hop bitterness and some booziness. The finish is sweet, boozy, and slightly bitter.

M - This has a medium to full body and lower carbonation. It has a nice smooth feel to it. It is sweet, bitter, and has some alcohol warmth to it.

O - This has good drinkability. It is a bit of a sipper, but the flavor is just great. Overall, I think this is a good tasting and very interesting beer. I am really glad I got to try it, and If I ever see it again I will buy another glass. I recommend.

250th review on BA
Not sure if was ontap and then into a pitcher or bottle to pitcher or cask to pitcher.

App- Poured a hazy medium amber with a nice one finger head to it. Had a fair amount of lacing on it.

Smell- Was a very candy like smell with a lot of sweetness.

Taste- Its quite a different tasting beer with the fruit/veggie aspect of the beets in it. You get a smooth vanilla with a little bit of caramel for the sweetness and then some malt and the rye to add to a nice if not different flavor.

Mouth- Its on the border of being medium bodied to me but ill say its a soft body and quite delicate on the palate. The after taste is a bit odd but I can't knock it really.

Drink- It's a tasty beer with some quite different flavors. I enjoyed but wouldn't order it again.

Reviewed on 3/17/2010. Growler. Pours a cloudy pinkish red with a thick light pink head. Aroma of sweet fruits, rose petals, chocolate. Kind of an odd arrangement of aromas actually and it just doesn't mesh for me. Flavor of sweet malt, apple skins, a touch of bourbon, slight rose petals, and bitter cocoa in the finish. Lots of sweet fruit notes (not sure where they're coming from) and I can taste some of the Rugbrod. This beer was just a mess for me and too sweet (not heavy sweet just sweet in flavor) to enjoy. An odd creation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured an orange pinkish brown with a huge 3 finger head and left lots of frothy lacing sticking to the glass. The nose was quite earthy with rose pedal notes popping out alongside woody and spice notes but there also was slight caramel chocolate in the background. The taste was also really earthy consisting of some of the ingredients in the nose like rose pedals, spice, cedar wood, caramel, and chocolate like accents. I could also detect a touch of underlying vanilla as well. The brew was medium to full in body with too much carbonation which had a sweet, earthy, and spice finish. It drank pretty good but there was so much head on the beer that I had to wait 10 mins till the head settled and was drinkable. Honestly not worth the hassle cause I would only drink about 5 oz's and be done with it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed on tap at the Bruery tasting room. Made with rose petals, beets and cocoa nibs, according to a nearby sign. Interesting ingredients.

Looks: cool. The color is a badass rose/orange/auburn hue that shifts at different angles. Zero head, zero ring.

Smells: vegetal. Vanilla, roses, strawberries and an odd mustiness in the back. Perhaps it's the beets?

Tastes: super light. The flavor is delicate, but what's there is strange: tangy beets, roses and pencil shavings.

Feels: lightly carbonated, with a smooth, medium body.

Drinks: like an oddity. Once I zeroed in on the flavor of pencils, it was hard to get past it. Not bad; just not something I would try again.

3.7/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - slightly murky brownish red with a large, short lived, tannish head. Little lacing.

S - sweet malts, caramel, a little bit of cocoa, and a predominant cedar-like wood aroma. Very similar to the typical Hitachino Nest brewery smell.

F/M - sweet pilsner-like malts with a light chocolaty flavor. Slight fruity esters of apples and pears. No detectable hop flavor but the bitterness is medium-low which lets a lot of the compex malty/estery flavors shine, but I think a lot of it gets muddled together. The cedar wood is slightly less detectable in the flavor.

D - good drinkability for being such a big beer. The flavors aren't too aggressive and it finishes quite clean making it a pretty easy-drinking beer; the flavors are just too weird.

Serving type: growler
