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

12 oz bottle from Scott. Poured a golden/orange with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma has a bit of funk about it with notes of grains, curaco and a hint of white wine. Body is nice with a medium-full mouthfeel and average carbonatoin with a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of grains, wet cereal, funk, lemons and a hint of yeast. Not bad.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spiciness and light fruits, some caramel and weird malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. After having Heady Topper, I was expecting more from this beer.

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.

Wow. I haven’t had too many gluten free beers so I can’t judge too much, but let’s just say I’m 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.

Saison type aromas. Off thin water flavor withstrong apple flavors. Tastes more like a cider than a beer but whatever, I don’t have gluten issue. Gimme gluten!!

Draft @ the brewpub. Orange pour with white head. Some light citrus and coriander and herbal tea. Almost like a sahti.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Peculier Pub, NY bottle ($6): Pour is golden with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is saison funk. Taste is a bit funky too with citrus touches. It has a little bit of hop bitterness as well. If this wasn’t advertised as such, I would not have known that this was a gluten-free beer, except for perhaps the appearance.

PhillyCraft (3307) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle from Pat with Tom and Pat, pours a hazy glowing orange color with thin head and med. lacing. Aromas of peppermint, brett, seafood scum, coriander, and artificial orange. Taste is pretty much salty mussels with metalic funk, and bitter ashy grains. Not pleasent at all. Weird herbs, clams, vanilla, and other shit spice. Bring on the topper.

12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors’. Great eye appeal in the tulip. Lightly cloudy gold with just the slightest thin, bubbly head that remained after a huge fizzle, die down. Delicious nose of orange zest and a hint of flower hops. I didn’t even know what sorghum is and had to Google it. My 1st gluten free brew. After finishing, I did notice a graininess flavor that was a bit different from anything I had in a beer. However, not a bad thing. Light lingering hops. This won a Gold Medal in the gluten free category for a reason. Light, refreshing and well worth a try if you like Saisons.
