Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Wacko is the liquid song of summer: Crisp like the morning, cool like the evening and quenching all day long. Pop the top and set your summer loose. Wacko is a delicious summer beer with a big malty aroma, a subdued hop bite and a clean, slightly sweet finish.

The beer has a beautiful red tinge, white full foam head somewhat higher CO2 level than Keg. Aroma has mostly DMS (dimethyl sulfide) cooked corn probably from the beet sugar used.
Flavor is lite malt with very low bitterness with some DMS in flavor no real after taste. finishes clean absolutely a summer beer
on a hot day. The keg version is much more flavorful.

I can't even fathom the still make this beer. There have been many amazing things added to beer, blueberries, grapefruit, etc, but beets.. Beets are a punishment and create a really horrible beer. It's not secret that I am not a fan of Magic Hat but this one takes the cake, it was seriously the worst beer I have ever experienced.
