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.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Golden color, bright, with compact head. The aroma is fresh, fruity, hoppy, crisp. Lean mouthfeel; good malt flavor, quite crisp, some cereals, with late light sugars; strong bitterness with plenty of hop qualities; balanced.
It has something peculiar given the absence of barley, but it’s barely noticeable. It’s a remarkable effort.
Very good.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
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.

Lubiere (10152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
A golden amber ale with a thin white head. A nice floral hops in aroma, wuite decent. In mouth, a light dryish beer with decent floral hops, a bit lacking in roundness but for a gluten free, quite nice. On tap at Bieres et Saveurs 2011, Sept 3 2011.

Bov (9608) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 16, 2014
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - pretty clear dark amber-blond beer under a giant foamy head; aroma of almonds, corn and fruits; some artificial sweetness, a good malt body, tart corny finish, some bitterness and a light residual sweetness with more flowery and caramelish notes in front of faint fruity tones

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.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Mangoes, oranges, passionfruit and pineapples bloom from this dry American-style Pale Ale’s hop signature, as expansive bubbling and a characterful cereal blend (millet, quinoa, buckwheat) create an even more distinctive signature.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the misty blond.
-The cereal personality makes for an intense finish with the sustained green hop resins.
-Squash-like undertones stem from the unusual grain bill.
-The grain bill is not nearly as soft as malted barley can be, but for a gluten-free beer, this is exceptional.
-The bubbles are too prickly and intense for my taste, hindering drinkability somewhat.
-This is way too expensive for a quencher, but it remains very competently executed.

Bottle.

Dunkelgoldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkroen. Geruch hopfig, grasig, getreidig, blumig. So ist auch der Geschmack.

crossovert (7580) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2014
473ml can. Pours a deep light amber with a lasting white head. Smell is light, vague citrus and vague grains, which give off a toasted almsot smoky smell. The flavor is immediately defferent than an all-grainbeer. But it is also different than a sorghum beer. It has a huge bitterness that jsut sticks on your tounge. Citrus notes, agree with the grapefruit mentioned in the description and smoke. This beer is also super dry.It definitely isn’t super good but it is on the right track. Definitley gets more comfortable each sip.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
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.

Draft @ Delirium. Cuivrée, col épais beige collant au verre, bulles type champenoises. Arôme est malté assez moyen, houblon subtile offre qcq effluves citronnées - pamplemousse. Palais reste focalisé sur les grains avec un retrait herbacé. Le profile reste assez unique, peut être du au manque de gluten. Note levure en rétro avec qcq pointe de houblons. Le tout reste centré sur des malts type caramel - pâle qui me rappelle une base scotch. Un ajout modéré du houblon qui peine à vraiment percer. Possible levure donnant une fin de bouche rappelant un nettoyant industriel sans pour cela nuire à la bière. Reste sympa, mais juste ce petit qcq chose auquel je n’accroche pas.
