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.

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

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.

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.

Draft. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Dry earthy herbal hop tones, a hint of lemon and citrus notes. Load of orange peel with a lightly drying finish. Amarillo hop tones, and a bit grainy, with a hint of apple. Okay.

Saison type aromas. Off thin water flavor withstrong apple flavors. Tastes more like a cider than a beer but whatever, I don’t have gluten issue. Gimme gluten!!

A hazed golden saison with a thin off white head. In aroma, light perfumey grain with fruit pulp, apple and pears, nice. In mouth, a nice chalky saison with herbal spices, cloves, not bad. Tasted at Drink Craft Beer Summerfest Fest, July 14 2012.
