COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Glutenberg rousse est une ale sans gluten, brassée à partir de sarrasin, de millet, de quinoa et de marron. Le nez est marqué par des arômes de prunes mûres et de caramel tandis que la bouche évoque des notes de pain grillé et de marrons torréfiés.

Impressionné pour une bière au gluten. Bonne effervescence, un gout un peu âcre, bon gout de rousse, pas de mousse.

Can from Total Wine in Folsom, CA as "red ale". Pours clear amber with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma seems a little smoky. ? Near med body. Flavor is suggesting smoke to me. It’s moderately sweet. Not sure what to say. Smoky?

Man this shit is weird. It smells like caramel and toasted (something), but there’s also this weird red Kool-Aid element that I find disconcerting. Millet and buckwheat and corn and quinoa and what in the sweet christ am I drinking right now? These beers all have this weird essence that I can’t quite place. Definitely not a fan.

Really interesting...and a shining example as to why you can’t make great beer without delicious gluten. Weird grain forward aromas and flavours..I don’t even know what I’m smelling and tasting...hemp? Flax? Sorghum? Lol. Lots of flavour..just not my thing.

cheap (4627) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
From a big can that says RED on it, not rousse frenchy. Candy light aroma with volatile hints. Looks like darker iced tea with a medium rocky alabaster head. A little ruff there on the uptake, hints of tartness lurking but not in yer face. Some coarseness and leather in there fer sure. Bandaid anybody?

Apparence: D?une couleur caramel foncé translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mousse moyenne d?une durée moyenne. Légère effervescence avec des bulles de petite taille. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de figues et des légères notes caramel. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps léger. Au goût, c’est des flaveurs de céréales légèrement caramélisé. Finale courte, avec aucune effervescence et idem pour l’amertume. Commentaires: Pour les personnes allergiques au gluten, c’est un produit très intéressant. Pour les autres, vous pouvez trouver définitivement plus goûteux ailleurs facilement surtout si vous désirez une bière qui a quelque chose à offrir ... n’importe quoi. Fiche technique Style: Bière ambrée Format: 473 ml Taux d?alcool : 5%

mcberko (9752) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Can at CiderWISE, pours a dark red with a small off-white head. Nose is like that of a conventional amber, with toasted malt and bready caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt, bready caramel and a decent hop punch to balance. Surprisingly good, with a good balance of hops and grains. Quite nice.

Ferris (8120) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Can - Malty caramel with a touch of twig. Clear brown copper with a decent light brown head. Toffee and twig with a nice toast dry finish. Not bad.

JaKeAFC (750) - ITALY - MAR 14, 2015
35 cl bottle. Red to burgundy color, short offwhite head. Aroma of burnt wood and chestnut, hints of caramel. Taste slightly bitter. Light body, low carbonation. Some apple & plum in the finish, short dry finish. Weird.

Boutip (5226) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
Can: Poured a clear brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and small lacing. Aroma of light grainy malt base with dry caramel notes. Taste is also a mix of dry caramel malt with some grainy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Standard red ale with limited hops and more grainy malt base than usual due to use of alternate grains.

Metalchopz (2629) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
4-pack of cans from my local Métro store. Pours a clean dark amber colour with a big frothy-creamy beige head, great retention and thick lacing. Some nice aromas of roasted malts (or whatever grain is burnt) with the sweetness of caramel. At times, some grassiness from the hops. The is a little different, like most gluten-free brews but had their typical apple flavours in the finish with a little dryness. Hints of nuts are fighting to show. Goes down nicely like most of their beers. Pretty decent for the style, for a g-free one.
