2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from kihoskh.
You can do two bad things to a beer. alcohol free and gluten free. the latter is by far the worst thing taste wise, imo. So let’s see how Dogfish Head have decided to go about this. It’s not easy.. clear dark yellow, amber hue, small white head. Aroma of honey and strawberries, and some wild notes, aroma could pass for a mead, or even a weird cider. At least it’s interesting. Flavor is herbal, sourish, wild yeasty notes, strawberries. Tastes like *something* was fermented, but not like beer. closest beer relative flavor wise would be some kind of wild ale. The dry herbal bitterness never go sour (which might become interesting) but just stays this wild yeasty herbal kind of flavor. Like a pretty messed up saison.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Golden-amber body with great clarity & a soapy white head that settles quickly to a ring. Fake strawberry candy aroma. Very sweet, loaded with candied strawberry, honey, & a strange plasticy off-tone. Flavor is gross. Overly sweet strawberry & honey candy-like flavors, plastic, metal, & just a strange astringent finish. Chalky & a bit medicinal, too. Just an awful beer to force down.

Strawberry aroma with hints of honey. Appearance has a light strawberry tint with a small white head. Flavor has strawberry notes upfront and honey notes in the back. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Overall, not bad for a gluten free beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a fairly clear copper with some sediment and a thin white ring of head. Aroma is perfumy, sorghum(but not attacking like a lot of gluten free beers), mild fruity notes, and mild honey. Flavour is fruity, strawberries, sorghum, honey and moderately tart. Well rounded, smooth, refreshing and the girlfriend(celiac) approves! If only this was accessible here...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear orangish auburn with a small white foamy head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma of sweet honey, strawberry syrup and hay. Aroma makes you think this beer is going to be sickly sweet but the flavor is a natural strawberry, light sweet notes of honey with some dark dried fruit flavors from the sorghum and a light sourness to round it out...balance is really delicate and almost borders on being a bit watery but never cloying. Overall this is the best gluten free beer I’ve tried and borders on drinking like a light mead.
