Formerly known as Projet Américain.

La Glutenberg pale ale américaine est une ale sans gluten, brassée à partir de millet, de sarrasin, de mais et de quinoa. Son nez expressif offre des arômes d’abricot et de pamplemousse. La bouche, d’une belle amplitude, explose avec des notes d’agrumes, spécialement de pamplemousse, véritable signature des houblons américains. Elle présente une amertume relevée, caractéristique de ce style de bière.

Bottle 341 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Pours clear golden with tiny white head. Aroma: earth hops, pineapple, malt. Taste is malty with strong bitter finish. Balance is so-so. Thin beer. I expected more from this beer, since I have read so much great reviews on this brewer.

Cask at cask days, Toronto. Hazy orange and no head. There’s almost no aroma, but a bit fruity and flowery notes. The taste is like honey, wonderful palate! Nice and balanced.

After being slightly surprised by their IPA, I figured it was finally time to pick up a mixer pack from these guys. I think I figured wrong. This stuff looks like a beer but it smells like....I dunno....weird. There are some nice citrus/floral hops, but there’s also a lot of corn syrupy sweetness. This carries through to the taste. There’s a nice bit of hop bitterness at the end, but up until that point....this stuff is not for me, though if you HAVE to drink a gluten-free beer....this exists.

Glutenberg: this is like a cross between the inventor of the printing press and the dumbest dietary trend in decades. Yeah, fuck that. The beer is not exactly great either. It’s clear and orange w/ just a scant bit of foamy head. It’s nose is mild, sweet and fruity. It is slightly sweet w/ a sort of weird, unpleasant ashy note. The bitterness in the finish is not to strong but still metallic and a touch harsh while crisp carbonation is just not enough to keep this from feeling to sweet and heavy. Honestly, if you have to be gluten free, just drink whiskey or something.

Tap at saint bock. Golden with small head. Tastes like a gluten free beer. Just a bit off with a strange aftertaste.

Apparence: D?une couleur dorée translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mince mousse d?une très courte durée. Effervescence moyenne avec des bulles de petite taille. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont de légères arômes de céréales avec de légères notes de miel. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps léger. Au goût, c’est des légères flaveurs de céréales avec une touche de fleurales qui provient du houblon. Finale courte, avec une légère effervescence et une pointe d’amertume. Commentaires: Pour les personnes allergiques au gluten, c’est un produit très intéressant. Pour les autres, vous pouvez trouver définitivement plus goûteux ailleurs. Fiche technique Style: Pale Ale Américaine Format: 473 ml Taux d?alcool : 5,5%

Canette de 473ml. Leger arôme de citra. Belle couleur dorée, mousse voluptueuse. Manque d’amertume, corps trop léger. Citra très présent en bouche. Correct.

Can from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours gold with a slight fizzy white head. Nice citrus aroma, mayhap including grapefruit. Med body or nearly. Flavor starts nicely citrus hop, and then sort of loses with no hop support. Or not nearly enough. Getting some sort of hot burn in the finish. Each quaff starts nicely, and then it doesn’t go well. Gluten free seems to work best when the gluten is removed from real beer. Widmer does some contract beers like that. http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/omission-

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Une blonde ambrée assez claire avec un petit col. Nez de céréales inusitées (est-ce réellement le quinoa que je sens?). Légère arôme d’agrumes. Carbonisation de petites bulles. Amertume assez franche. Goût discret de céréales. Un peu aqueuse et sec au final.

Can at CiderWISE, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose is weird, with some strange grain notes. Flavour is bone dry, with grains, light hops, and a bone dry finish. Quite nicely balanced and constructed. Good stuff for a gluten free beer.
