3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

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.

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.

Saison type aromas. Off thin water flavor withstrong apple flavors. Tastes more like a cider than a beer but whatever, I donít have gluten issue. Gimme gluten!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 wasnít advertised as such, I would not have known that this was a gluten-free beer, except for perhaps the appearance.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
