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.

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.

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.

Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sorghum, spices,and light toast. Taste of citrus, lighter sorghum, pepper, Saison yeast,and a drier finish.

Gription79 (2232) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There is definitely a nail polish aroma to this, citrus, earthy, pine. Very interesting, a lot of acidity.

blklab2007 (1940) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 19, 2013
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.

Bottle at home. Pours a deep orange, slightly hazy, average head. Aroma is pungent, with band aid, funk, citrus, coriander. Medium bodied, strong saison yeast profile, lots of coriander and black pepper, orange, and a big bitter finish. Crisp and pretty clean, maybe a twang of medicinal flavors. If not labeled as sorghum, I wouldn’t have thunk it.
