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.

pours clear bright golden with a nice white head, good retention and lacing. tropical fruits, honey, very floral, citrusy and freshly harvested cereals. average to soft carbonation, light body, decent relatively short citrusy finish. again, more than decent non malt-based brew.

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.

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)

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Bouteille 341 ml. 5.5%. Nouvel essai 25 août 2012: Couleur jaune foncé, mousse blanche. Arôme de houblon aromatique, céréale. En bouche, malt, et houblon, wow rafraichissante. Finale en amertume et céréale. Très bonne.

Usually not a fan of gluten-free beers. Glad they make them for those allergic to it, but usually too different from normal beers. Usually, I say. This brewery managed to make a great APA, that from the bottle, you would never know it is gluten-free. Now, from the glass, clean golden-amber colour, foamy head (that goes down half, quickly, and the other half takes time). Great hoppy APA nose. After breathing a bit, that is when you notice the different grains with hints of tropical fruits. Beautiful light dryness in the finish with a little bitterness. Some caramel comes out in the aftertaste to balance everything. A nice decent APA, but probably the best gluten-free beer I will ever have.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
Bouteille de 341ml. Bière dorée avec une fine mousse blanche s’estompant rapidement. Au nez, elle est fruitée et sucrée avec des notes de miel, fruits de la passion, litchis, agrumes et pin ainsi que de céréales. En bouche, les céréales sont très présentes avec une bonne dose de fruits similaires aux arômes et une finale amère bien franche. Corps moyen avec une gazéification prononcée. J’ai de la difficulté à noter les bières de BSG, j’essaie de les noter comme une bière ordinaire, mais le brasseur en moi ne peut qu’admirer ce que fait cette brasserie. Habituellement les bières sans gluten sont insipides ou tout simplement mauvaises, mais les bières de BSG n’ont rien à envier à bien des brasseries "ordinaires". Ça promet!

At Succursal brewpub in Montréal. Distinct aroma of elderflower. Taste has some elder as well as some yeast notes but aftertaste is pleasantly floral while yeasty

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
October 27, 2012 - 8th Annual Volo Cask Days. Very cloudy orange-yellow with a minimal white foamy head. Smells good - very juicy (blood orange, pineapple) with solid floral bitterness (7+). Taste follows - more bitterness, less fruit, some increased alcohol presence. Average chewy body, decently carbonated, fairly long floral finish, a little dry and acidic in the linger - solid beer, so gluten-free CAN be done without tasting like utter shit.

Pours a clear golden-copper color with a small white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is citrus hops and some pineapple. Grapefruit taste with a bit of lingering hops. Not too bad.

En fût. Pinte dégustée chez Brouhaha (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Odeur de céréales avec une pointe de fruits tropicaux. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de millet et de zestes d’orange avec une pointe de fruits tropicaux. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement astringent. (Rating #4119)
