Today I tried a Beet Weiss from Crane Brewing Company. I'll start by saying that I love beets (or beetroot, as my U.K. friends call it). I was actually planning on just having Cuento Coffee at the brewery, but one of my friends bought a flight and got me the beet beer because she knew I was a fan.
It was great!
The beer was light and tart and tasted exactly like pickled beets. The only thing that would have made it taste more like the pickled beets I make would have been the addition of some cloves. Hint, hint, Crane Brewing.
That said, it's obviously only for people who love the taste of beets. If you're a beet hater, just move along.
I only had the small taster glass today, but I would definitely drink it again. It was so novel and interesting that I found myself thinking about it later. Let me know if you want to go with me and try it!
