COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Amber color with white head. Bad medical aroma, phenolic and yeasty. Light sweet with malty flavour.

34 cl bottle, 5.5%, 2.90€. Almost exploded while opening, pours 100% foam, nasty cider smell. Holy crap a beer with such enormous head never seen before, just ridiculous, can’t get the glass filled in 10 minutes, pure soap, absurd. Copper color, partly hazed with particles. Undefined flavor, with faint grains and a load of green apple peel dipped in brown sugar. Fairly fruity with an unrefined hops counterpart. Tastes like homemade-kit brew, taste itself is acidic. Yuck. Maybe good for a gluten free, but i didn’t like it at all.

Good hopping and aroma but the sweetness is a bit odd perharps, body and mouthfeel aren’t perfect. At first taste is really nice but the more you drink it the more it doesn’t taste like beer.

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A medium amber ale with a bit of pale head. Nose is faintly sweet. Some resinous hop detected up front. The only other taste impression is distinctly odd, due no doubt to an absence of barley in the grain bill. Blech! 2.5.

Draught, St Augs. Light amber. Toasty, with fruity hop. Light, bit thin, lots of hop. Herbal, almost sharp bitterness. Brown rice taste towards the finish. Lots of hops. Wow, gluten free has come a long way.

Draft at St. Augustine’s. Glad I chose to take a chance and sample this. What a surprise. The aroma is bright and fresh with mint and toast. The alternate malts are really amazing here, these brewers are expert craftsmen. I was convinced they had smoked something because I kept detecting peat smoke. There is a whole lot of flavor layered, with generous hopping that never seems out of balance. The body is quite substantial for a GF beer. If you think about it hard, the lack of malt sugars makes for a slightly thin body, but again, only if I think hard about it. I’ve had way thinner bodies and thinner flavors from barley beer. It would be quite easy for me to pint this one. This is the GF that can fool you.

Scrapersnbeer (1486) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Vaguely hoppy with a dusty malt aroma. Hazy orange color with light tan head. Taste is a floral-rye bubblegum, very strange. Light but creamy body. Doesn’t have a finish to speak of. Interesting enough, but go with the IPA.

Light yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of grains and faint floral hops. Taste of grains and faint hops. Light bodied, higher carbonation, really quite undrinkable.

Bottle @ home. Well, I’m curious what this will bring. The gluten free beers I’ve had in the past haven’t been very good so hopefully this will change things. Clear orange golden color, huge white head. Aroma has some hoppy notes, but a bit faint. Taste is pretty bitter with a decent hoppyness. Lightly floral as well. A bit too much carbonation imo, but otherwise a decent beer. Probably the first gluten free beer I’ve finished.
