Had this on tap before and remembered liking it. Happy to find it in a bottle!

Appearance. Pours a pinky-red with half a finger of light pink head.

Smell. Funky old barrel, beets and a little lactic sourness, a drop of red wine and maybe a little lemon.

Taste. Definitely beets, lightly sweet and a little earthy as a good beet should be. Some light lactic sourness, a touch of red wine and just a hint of old wood.

Mouthfeel. Light+ body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Interesting stuff for sure. Would love to age another bottle which would hopefully bring up the sour and maybe calm down the beet a little (though it isn't bad right now if you like the taste of beets).

Serving type: bottle

On tap at the Collins Pub.

A bright red body with a thin white head.

S Some pickled beets with a hint of tartness.

T Some more beets, some earth and a bit of tart.

M thin with light carbonation.

Overall this is a strange beer that oddly works. Possibly the only beer I would put on a salad.

Serving type: on-tap
