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.

Hey its a gluten free beer what do you expect. Pours a pale yellow/grey with seltzer fizz head. Aroma is light orange tang and hay. Taste Is orange seltzer and that strange sorgham taste present in gluten free beers. Finish is clean and refreshing. I was hoping for more of the saison yeast element to this.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There is definitely a nail polish aroma to this, citrus, earthy, pine. Very interesting, a lot of acidity.

Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. The nose hides the sphorgam nicely with a little rustic spice, citrus zest and some round fruit. The palate however does not hide the sphorgam quite so well,,, strange artificial sweetener, grainy aspartame, dirty lingering aftertaste... One of the better go beers I’ve had but am convinced that this cannot be done well...

Sampled this at the brewpub. Lightly hazy golden with orange highlights - head recedes but lasts. Aroma of some estery yeast and sorghum - grainy. Taste is yeasty with some esters and phenols - and the weird sorghum grain gets a bit annoying. This was a good example of a sorghum beer, but unfortunately without a crapload of hops to cover it up, I had a hard time enjoying it.

Gotta love Alchemist. After brewing a rock star IIPA, they follow with... a gluten-free, sorghum based brew! The label has a feminine drawing on the label, which suggests that women are the intended customers. Cloudy brown pour. Tangy aroma with some floral hops and yeast. The taste is tangy, lightly bitter, and has some smoky sorghum notes. There is something a little nasty in there too. Celia is not really that saison-like, but she is plenty flavorful for a non-gluten brew. Not great, but a good try at making something unique.

Bottle. Pours a clear light peach color with minimal head. Nose is spicy like pepper with some mixed in notes of fruity sweetness. Palate is medium with a bit of carbonation and a sticky finish. Flavors of pepper, spices, light banana esthers, light alcohol warming. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden/yellow color with with an inch of foamy white head. Aroma of faint orange peel, and very herbal and medicinal. Taste is coriander, banana, belgian yeast, light orange/citrus, with more of the herbal/medicinal notes. Not bad for a sorghum beer, but definitely different.
