2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 07/19/2012. Pours hazy orange amber, sparse large-bubbled head. Nose is citrus, oregano, grassy hop character, grain (sorghum I guess), and strange, light rubber character. Taste has zesty citrus and fruit, spice, bitter grains. Light, smooth body, very dry. Meh. It seems this one was better on tap?

Bottle shared with Andrew. Pours an amber body with light lacing. Aroma is mint, herbal, grass and tea. Mouthfeel is light with notes of tea, mint, grain and grass. One of the better, more drinkable gluten-free beers.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared with Charlie in Vineyard Haven, MA. Pours a faintly hazy gold with a weak, white foam head. Aroma is all rough candied sugar, some yeasty dough. Medium sweet flavor with lots of candi sugar, some grainy and doughy malts, some bitter straw, hints of plastic. Medium bodied with average to heavy carbonation. Sweet finish with still more candied, Belgian sugar and an awkward, abrasive bitterness. Subtle notes of licorice. The alcohol is a bit unpleasant. Not a great beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden body, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is peppery, with some orange, grapefruit, bubblegum and a grainy presence. Not bad. Flavor just doesn’t do it for me. Prickly with an astringent characteristic from the spicy sorghum notes. Orange peel and Belgian can’t mask a lacking base profile. Medium bodied, astringent, dry, spicy, prickly, and a lingering finish.

bottle. i suppose this is good for the style of gluten free. that being said, golden orange pour, fruity yeastiness, not sure what sorghum tastes like but it must be bland

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewpub back in Nov 2010: golden amber with a foamy white head, spicy aroma, sour tasting, some spices as well. Not a favorite of mine.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a very loose quick disppating white head.
Aroma has that clear farmhouse distinction, but lacks depth and character. Slight fruit notes come through but there is something off about it.
Flavor is very fruity, with a hint of spice. Farmhouse flavor is there and for being a gluten free beer the taste was not terrible.
It’s hard to rate anything with Sorghum simply because it is usually awful. While I didn’t really enjoy this beer I did think ti was a quality sorghum attempt and was probably one of the better gluten free beers I’ve had.
