3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rough but interesting aroma with dark fruity yeast, Rye like malts and a pleasant dark hop mix. As an American Pale Ale I expected more pronounced freshness, but generally it works very well I think. Smooth drinkable body too. Pleasant beer, certainly the best gluten free beer I ever had! (Bottle from Beer City)

Bottle. Light amber, or deep golden, whichever suits you. Frothy white head that leaves early lace. Aroma is delicate perfumey floral hops, nice but just not all that assertive. Flavour is certainly hop centered, mostly floral aromatics, ending in astringent aspirin-like bitterness. The malts here actually aren’t bad; they have a nice texture and contribute just a light flavour. A very good gluten-free offering. I’d have this again.

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Pint can. Aroma of fruity and floral hops, even a little sweeter than expected, pours copper-golden with below-average carbonation and supports a dense beige head that’s rocky and has light legs. Nose is just a touch grainy, but not bad. Taste is all kinds of werd soft grainy notes mixing in with heavy, perfume slurry, and not just floral notes from the hops -- the grains impart this really oily, sweet texture that’s off-putting in how far it is from a beer (I’ve definitely found this in other buckwheat offerings) and there’s a fumy, boozy character that would have you guessing this to be 15% abv (just without the heat). Light-medium body. Clean with a finished fermentation, but gonna have to do better than this. The gluten problem is a really tough one.

Pours a brilliantly clear copper with a small white ring of foam and a couple spots on the glass. Aroma is slightly unfamiliar I think sorghum, citrus, floral, and a mild sweetness. Flavour is a bit astringent, I think sorghum or some sort of syrup, moderate bitterness and mild grass. Not bad for a gluten free beer though just not quite there.

Actually a noble effort for a gluten-free beer because they manage to nail the hops flavour here. It’s just the absence of malt that throws this off. Maybe if they added even more hops to disguise it. Had a sip of this at Get Well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange with a white foam head that quickly disappears.
Nose: buckwheat, sage, green tea and a reductive note that spoils a bit the ensemble.
Mouth: green pepper, high carbonation, fizzy mouth feeling, short finish, dry and bitter.
Clear gluten free beer ... but still lack of chewy ... gluten, probably.

Nice try for a glutenfree beer. Golden coloured and light hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Sweet, fruity, sharp aroma. Flavor is a mix of sweet malts, and sharp bitterness.
