12 oz. bottle courtesy of Pat. Shared with Vincent and Pat. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with little head. Nose is light citrus, soiled tampons, oysters, and acetone. Taste is sweet and metallic like Robocopís taint. Thankfully there was a Heady Topper nearby to wash away this taste.

Bottle. 12 oz. Courtesy of my buddy Mark at work. Thanks, Mark. Pours nice clear orange with a thin wisp of white head. Aroma of a band-aid drizzled with honey. Tastes like orange flavored plastic. You know, I just donít feel this beer deserves the rest of my attention. Itís terrible. Listen to TerdFerg: stick to the Topper. That beer is beyond awesome. Cheers. And on a personal note, please stop with the goddamn gluten-free bullshit. If youíre allergic, donít drink beer. You donít see Reeseís making peanut-butter-free cups for people with peanut allergies. Take heed.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow witha white head. Nose is band-aid, phenols, nail polish remover, and some fruit. Flavor is similar with band-aid, nail polish remover, and some slight sweetness of fruit. I know gluten-free beers are their own animal, but I was not a fan.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a very loose quick disppating white head. Aroma has that clear farmhouse distinction, but lacks depth and character. Slight fruit notes come through but there is something off about it. Flavor is very fruity, with a hint of spice. Farmhouse flavor is there and for being a gluten free beer the taste was not terrible. Itís hard to rate anything with Sorghum simply because it is usually awful. While I didnít really enjoy this beer I did think ti was a quality sorghum attempt and was probably one of the better gluten free beers Iíve had.

Got this while on a trip to VT. Poured from a 12.oz bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass. The color is a slightly hazy orange with a finger of foamy head with little lacing sticky to the glass. The smell is fruity with orange peel and a touch of apricots. There is a nice earthy tone o the aroma that does say "farmhouse" a bit with a slightly hoppy aroma in the back. The taste is sweet at first with the citrus hitting the tongue then there is a strange bland flavor where the malt should be. Not quite giving this beer enough of a sweetness that I expected. The orange rind flavor does come forward and saves this beer. There is a clay like aftertaste that does have a good slight sweetness with it so it does not become too much to handle. The feel of this beer is light and goes down easy. There is a decent amount of carbonation in this beer that does wash off some of the aftertaste. Not bad for a gluten free beer.

Pours a pale gold, lifeless. Aroma of coriander, and orange peel. Taste follows, disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by TURDFERGUSON. How can the same brewery that makes Heady Topper produce this beer? I shudder thinking about the experience of drinking it. Orange and menthol nose. Herbal dirt. Tastes as bad. Couldnít drink more than a tad.

Bonus from John Adams. Hazy amber with a nice slightly off white head. Aroma was slightly off and then read the description to see it was gluten free. Dehydrated orange, light funk, some lemon and pepper, slightly off earthiness. Body is like a good but watered down tea, low carbonation, somewhat sweet with a bit of funk and very very slight sourness, spice becomes more predominant, slightly off putting aftertaste. All of that being said if I had to drink a gluten free beer this would probably be near or at the top of the list.

Wow. I havenít had too many gluten free beers so I canít judge too much, but letís just say Iím glad The Alchemist dedicates most of their tanks to making heady topper. light golden pour with small white head. Nose is salty, oregano, farty orange juice, and vacuum cleaner. Could not put down more than a Danish samples worth.

Pours a clear orange lemon with frothy white head. Aroma is very floral with bitter citrus notes and bread. Flavor is largely floral, rose water, brown sugar and pepper. Flavors definitely came out when beer warmed out. Body is light yet active carbonation.
