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.

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.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2010
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.

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.

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 Iíve 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 Robocopís taint. Thankfully there was a Heady Topper nearby to wash away this taste.

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.
