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.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Une petite bouteille qui provient d’un échange. Un liquide orangé et son anneau de mousse. Un nez étrange de savon à vaisselle parfumé à l’orange. Des saveurs détestables de détergent et de choses synthétiques. Une bouche qui manque de corps. Une finale qui est pénible. Une bière qui est difficile à boire. Heureusement, nous étions deux sur la bouteille. Et, malheureusement, j’écris ce texte en direct de l’unité d’observation de l’hôpital Charles-Lemoyne : l’interniste cherche encore le meilleur traitement pour ce type d’empoisonnement alimentaire. Des idées, quelqu’un?

12oz Bottle, purchased at the Brattleboro Food Coop - Brattleboro, VT. I want to be nice to this, because I know how difficult the gluten-free brewing conditions can be, but I also want to be somewhat objective. The aroma isn’t helping. This smells like a hospital bathroom. It’s insanely chemical and strong. Part fermented sorghum (and I know how disgusting baijiu is), part too much orange, part really catty, pungent hops. The flavors are somehow more doable.The orange is less like cleaning solution, the hops take on a cleaner bitterness, and the sorghum settles into a softer grain character. However, it’s still harsh, strong, and out of whack. If I were celiac, I’d be switching to tequila after this.

Bouteille de 341ml. Cette bière a été bue en compagnie de Patrick. Bière blonde jaune avec un anneau de mousse. Le nez sent l’écorce d’orange. En bouche cette bière sans gluten goute les carottes. C’est franchement mauvais. Si vous soufrez de la maladie de cœliaque buvez du vin !!

callmemickey (2829) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pale golden body, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is peppery, with some orange, grapefruit, bubblegum and a grainy presence. Not bad. Flavor just doesn’t do it for me. Prickly with an astringent characteristic from the spicy sorghum notes. Orange peel and Belgian can’t mask a lacking base profile. Medium bodied, astringent, dry, spicy, prickly, and a lingering finish.

tgncc (2823) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2012
The aroma is spicy, orange peel, citrus, light soapy water. The appearance is slightly hazy gold/orange, white head. Slightly grainy and funky as well. The flavor is orange peel, spicy, peppery, grapefruit bitter. The finish is spicy, pepper, citrus. Medium in body, if not slightly thin. Interesting to finally try a beer with sorghum. This beer is really not bad, actually refreshing on a hot night. I don’t know why it’s rated so low. Although it does seem like the orange peel and pepper is meant to overpower in this beer.

Picked up a 4-Pack from the Alchemist Cannery on Thursday. My GF loves Gluten Free beers and Saisons. Poured into a Hill Farmstead Glass.

A - Holy moly. This beer is GORGEOUS! SRM of 12. Deep bright and clear golden orange. This beer is BEAUTIFUL. I had to take a photo. No head on the pour.

S - Honeysuckle, flowers, fresh cut grass and a huge orange presence. Very zesty and covers up the sorghum smell well.

T - Oranges is what you get first and there’s almost a cough syrup taste. LIke cherry cough syrup. mellow finish of sorghum and lemons.

M - 50/50 carbonation on the mouth swish. Light body and semi-dry finish.

O - This is an okay beer. The only other gluten beer I’ve head is DFH Tweasonale and this is certainly better but not fantastic. Glad I don’t have allergies that keep me from drinking other beers.

Pours orange hazy beautiful in the sunlight, but with a small white head that dissipates quickly.

Bottle much thanks to Scott for sharing. Pours out a well carbonated orangy amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of fruity, spicy Belgian yeast, orange, and light bitterness. Taste is of orange peel, fruity Belgian yeast, light spice, and a solid dose of citrus hop notes in there also, definitely solid, especially for gluten free.

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. Couldn’t drink more than a tad.
