Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sorghum, spices,and light toast. Taste of citrus, lighter sorghum, pepper, Saison yeast,and a drier finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Alchemist. Pours a mostly clear light golden yellow with a thin white head- leaves ok lace. Aroma is light phenolic yeast, but I get a strange slight solvent acetone thing going on which throws the the whole beer off- gritty grain and some light doughy notes, slight lemon zest. Flavor is toast, light grains, lemon, old cereal and cobwebby must with some apple juice notes, and a gritty tacky grain feel in the end which gets astringent. I wasn’t feeling this beer at all, especially compared to their other great beers which were on at the time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub on November 4, 2010.
Pours a moderate amber color with nice white head and a bit of lacing as the beer goes down. Nose brings some floral hops, citrus, spice, generic sweetness, and some light fruits.
The flavor is pretty light and delicate. There’s some citrus, light peach, some stone fruits, a bit of spice, mildly-sweet malt, and a touch of earth. Pretty good body and carbonation. Smooth and easy-drinking.
Serving type: on-tap

bottle. i suppose this is good for the style of gluten free. that being said, golden orange pour, fruity yeastiness, not sure what sorghum tastes like but it must be bland

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with Andrew. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is mint, herbal, grass and tea. Mouthfeel is light with notes of tea, mint, grain and grass. One of the better, more drinkable gluten-free beers.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of something horribly pungent, some wet dog, cardboard, yeast, resin, and perhaps a hint of coriander seed - but this one smells pretty foul. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cheese and bitter metal flavours at first with an awful medicinal finish and a deep unpleasant bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is just as bad with the bitterness from metal or medicine coming strong and hard, a hint of alcohol and a little bit of coriander seed, but nothing good at all. Overall, a very bad beer - even for a gluten free beer - not sure what award this beer won (from description), but it is one of the worst i’ve ever sampled after spending so much for the bottle! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$3.00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2013.

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.

Thanks to Sam for sharing. I think this was actually my first ever gluten-free beer, and now I understand why my friend with Celiac’s just drinks wine instead of settling for these quarter-measures. Slightly herbal aroma, and has the weird taste of yams.

Pours gold into a shaker. Caramel and sour pit fruit aromas. Sweet sorghum upfront turning to mandarin in the sour lasting finish.
