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.

Bière orangée avec une faible mousse. Nez levuré et fruité (agrumes, banane, poire). En bouche, des saveurs d’orange, de citron et de houblon frais s’amalgament à une légère amertume. Une belle saison sans gluten que j’ai pris plaisir à boire sans gêne.

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.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Zesty mandarine-like fruitiness floats around the firm sorghum flavors, creating a very drinkable and well-dried out Gluten-Free Saison.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the clear golden.
-The citrusy fruitiness is important throughout, but never becomes overbearing.
-That sorghum flavor is surely one must get used to...
-The light body and prevalent fruitiness make this quenching.
-This is certainly more harmonious a flavor profile than that of the Celia IPA that was tried a few months back.

On tap at the brewpub.

Tripplebrew (767) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a clear orange lemon with frothy white head. Aroma is very floral with bitter citrus notes and bread. Flavor is largely floral, rose water, brown sugar and pepper. Flavors definitely came out when beer warmed out. Body is light yet active carbonation.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2012
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.

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.
