2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12oz bottle, bottled 5/30/06) Clear apple juice body topped by small but frothy off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, herbal tea, peach. Taste is medium sweet, bread, lime, some nectarine. Light body. Not saying that it’s particularly good, but it’s much better than New Grist, another sorghum beer, which I tried immediately before this one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden with a small white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma, with notes of nuts and prunes. Sweet fruity flavour, with a slightly sour fruit juice-like note. Considering the other ratings, it must have been oxidized. And that may not have been a bad thing...

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rather different sort of aroma; maybe a bit caramel. Solid amber color with wholly non-retentive head. Starts quite sweet. Near medium body with mild carbonation. The finish is rather caramel sweet with no detectable bitter. It’s ok, but ... On the other hand it is incredibly better than Bud!! Might be a little bitter building over time. Certainly not offensive.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought at Party Source, July 05. Lightly hazy blonde with brownish chunks. Rather neutral malt aroma with slight marks of burned rubber (*the bottle was heat shocked in my trunk). In mouth, rather refreshing mix of light crisp grass with decent bitterness for the style. Not bad considering its gluten free. A notch above Messagère.
