Received as an extra in a box. Pours a cloudy orange in color with a quarter finger worth of white head. Nose is predominately the curacao orange peel with some light belgian yeast. Very peculiar nose for a saison. Tastes disgusting, it tastes of stale hops, dish soap, belgian yeast...itís extremely offensive and I am struggling putting down each sip. Moderate mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, slightly slick, and a moderate finish. Was excited to try something else from Alchemist, this missed the mark quite a bit. I think I will take my time exploring the rest of their catalogue.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Weird herbal vegetal dough and Budweiser aroma. Not too good. Cooked vegetables. Asparagus. Ham.

Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours hazy amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of lightly spiced light stone fruit. Near med body. Flavor is spice and some sort of citrus. Meh. Itís a little gluey in flavor. Maybe even in texture. Finishes a little bit peppery/spicy.

Wow. I havenít had too many gluten free beers so I canít judge too much, but letís just say Iím glad The Alchemist dedicates most of their tanks to making heady topper. light golden pour with small white head. Nose is salty, oregano, farty orange juice, and vacuum cleaner. Could not put down more than a Danish samples worth.

Bottle shared by TURDFERGUSON. How can the same brewery that makes Heady Topper produce this beer? I shudder thinking about the experience of drinking it. Orange and menthol nose. Herbal dirt. Tastes as bad. Couldnít drink more than a tad.

bottle at reservoir, waterbury. clear golden with a small white cap, little retention. fruity - odd melons, peach, faint graininess, floral hops, light citrusy. average carbonation, almost aggressive though, light body, little to no finish.

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.

Gluten Free, made with sorghum. Iím excited for this given the advance of some sorghum beers lately (Widmer really did it right IMO) Bottled: unk Muddled apricot color with a fine light cream sheet of foam. Nice cloudy lace. Smells of flowers, coriander, clay, udder hand lotion, a hint of butter and some orange peel. The yeast is pretty intense in the nose. Flavor is heavily yeasty and has an almost mushy consistency for me, hard for me to get past the yeast here. Some medicinal character and black olive juice flavors. Boom, just realized why I dislike this beer - the yeast reminds me of Unibroue - nasty. Full thickness and slippery with a longer than desired finish for me. I am thankful to have had this, I am thankful to never likely have this again. Serving type: bottle 08-16-2012

Bottle. 12 oz. Courtesy of my buddy Mark at work. Thanks, Mark. Pours nice clear orange with a thin wisp of white head. Aroma of a band-aid drizzled with honey. Tastes like orange flavored plastic. You know, I just donít feel this beer deserves the rest of my attention. Itís terrible. Listen to TerdFerg: stick to the Topper. That beer is beyond awesome. Cheers. And on a personal note, please stop with the goddamn gluten-free bullshit. If youíre allergic, donít drink beer. You donít see Reeseís making peanut-butter-free cups for people with peanut allergies. Take heed.

Hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of something horribly pungent, some wet dog, cardboard, yeast, resin, and perhaps a hint of coriander seed - but this one smells pretty foul. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cheese and bitter metal flavours at first with an awful medicinal finish and a deep unpleasant bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is just as bad with the bitterness from metal or medicine coming strong and hard, a hint of alcohol and a little bit of coriander seed, but nothing good at all. Overall, a very bad beer - even for a gluten free beer - not sure what award this beer won (from description), but it is one of the worst iíve ever sampled after spending so much for the bottle! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$3.00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2013.
