Belle couleur dorée tirant sur l’orangée avec une belle tête pétillante, pour les louanges, ça s’arrête là. L’entrée de bouche caramélisée est pas si mal mais le crescendo final passe du végétal à l’ammoniac en passant par l’amertume d’une gomme de pin. Simplement pas fait pour moi.

Bonus from John Adams. Hazy amber with a nice slightly off white head. Aroma was slightly off and then read the description to see it was gluten free. Dehydrated orange, light funk, some lemon and pepper, slightly off earthiness. Body is like a good but watered down tea, low carbonation, somewhat sweet with a bit of funk and very very slight sourness, spice becomes more predominant, slightly off putting aftertaste. All of that being said if I had to drink a gluten free beer this would probably be near or at the top of the list.

Hazy amber/gold color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of yeast, fruit/floral, & spice; Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, citrus (notable orange), some hops, and spice; Finish is dry; Overall, just ok for me.

Bottle poured an amber in color with a thin coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has light hops, flowers, light orange rind, and some grains. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has some yeast, light orange peels, minerals, and a bit of increasing bitterness into the finish. Interesting beer but not one I would go back to. Definitely the best gluten free beer I have tried by a long shot.

12oz bottle. A light golden color with no head whatsoever.The pour and look is like apple juice. I tend to stay away from gluten free beer but I am a big fan of The Alchemist so figured it was worth a try. Still not a fan of the non-gluten but this is by far the best one I’ve tried. Probably deserves a higher rating but I need me my gluten.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Pat. Shared with Vincent and Pat. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with little head. Nose is light citrus, soiled tampons, oysters, and acetone. Taste is sweet and metallic like Robocop’s taint. Thankfully there was a Heady Topper nearby to wash away this taste.

Golden orange with ring and some lace. Nice orangey spicey gummy aroma. Semi-sweet orangy fruity herbal with finish herbal grassy bitterness. Tastes like a nice saison. I think we will need a gluten free category soon though, just to help gluten-free people sort it out.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Vthophead. Pours light gold with a 1/2" of white head that recedes quickly leaving a thin ring. Light aroma featuring coriander, orange peel and very mild earthy hops. Light, citrus flavor, orange and lemon. Some peppery notes. Light bodied and easy to drink.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 20120805 Updated Bottle version - Cloudy golden color with very small white head. Aroma/flavor is spicy with bready yeasts... much better than I remember from the brewpub. Spicy finish... love it... Draft at the brewpub - Poured a pale golden yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma was mildly spicy with some citrus and bready yeasts. Flavor was also spicy, some of which I attribute to the sorghum, with plenty of bread dough. Medium sour... a bit too for my idea of a Saison, but not unpleasant. Finish is slightly sour/tart, medium hoppy and clean. Not sure how the sorghum affected the production of his beer... although not a top effort, it is not a bad beer, but I see it as a bit of a "misfire" for such a quality brewer.
