Picked up this whimsical looking beer the other day. Served in a snifter.

A: pours bright orange, dense white head, some lacing, small bit of cloudiness

S: nose starts with aroma of candied oranges, and hints of beet sweetness, the sweet candy like aroma is followed by a significant dough like bready character, not getting much in the way of hops on the nose

T: taste is well balanced, a bit of citrus up front, some of the candy from the nose, but not too sweet by any means, the bread/malt character comes through big and provides for a crisp and dry finish. Nice balance.

MF: light body, medium carbonation

O: this is interesting and unique. The blood orange and beet character certainly doesn't stand out, but it seems to integrate well with this beer. Worth a try. (776 characters)

Pours clear, yellow/amber in color with a fingers worth of white head. Lots of white lace.

The nose has some oranges, earthy hops and a bit of sweet malt. Pretty vegetable-like.

The taste has some bitter citrus rind, light caramel malt, earthy vegetable and is quite bitter.

The mouthfeel is light, crisp, bitter, and amply carbonated.

Overall, decent pale ale witha special uniqueness. (398 characters)
