3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a 4-pack at Hunger Mountain Co-Op for $9. Poured into a standard pint glass.
A - Half a finger clear head. Dark pilsner look to it with a lot of bubbles.
S - Huge strawberries, grass and some dirt scent with the honey. Maybe leafiness? It’s hard to tell. sorghum is probably what it is. Sweet grass.
T - Interesting. That Sorghum taste is really in your face along with the sweet honey and mild strawberry aftertaste. There’s not many other beer characteristics though.
M - Light bodied, medium carbonation.
O - It’s good but maybe too sweet for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, FL - Fermentation Lounge - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark golden with a pink tint to it, soft bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet, with some light strawberry notes, a hint of brown sugar. Flavor has some strawberry notes, slightly clingy, a hint of honey sweetness, some yeastiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty and clingy. One of the more flavorful gluten free beers - but reinforces my thankfulness that my body can process gluten!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at unos. Light amber. Aroma of yeast, strawberry. Light, fruity strawberry flavor. One dimensional but I like it. Way off season.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma- It has almost a cheap, sweet, white wine smell to it. Think Barefoot Riesling. No malt at all, very subtle fruity aroma.
Appearance- Crystal clear golden in color. Very little white head.
Taste- Again, more wine like, semi-lambic in taste. Not big in strawberry at all. Thin in texture. Almost reminds me of Duchesse.
Overall- For this being my first gluten free beer, it is not bad, but its nothing special. For making a beer aimed at people who can’t drink beer, its ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours peachy gold into a shaker. White head crackles and recedes to nothing. Sour strawberry aromas. Crisp with sweet and sour summer fruit front to back. Abrupt bready finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet honey and syrup, with a touch of vinyl. Medium bodied, sweet. Plastic and a touch of strawberry. Empty, light toast and bitterness.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
201202229 As strawberry-buckwheat sorghum beers go, this is the best I’ve had. It’s more beer-like than I expected, but nevertheless it reminds me of a cloying effort at maibock with the rotten stench of passion fruit or guava. Points up for making it taste beery, but not a lick of noticeable berry and the bitterness I expected from buckwheat honey was nil. Really just a glass of mostly flat, terribly sweet sadness.

Tart and fruity like a Berliner. I will likely never order this again, but it was interesting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow. This doesn’t totally suck? Aroma is tart strawberry and hint of vinegar? Sweet floral flavor with strawberry notes, doesn’t taste fake or syrupy. Glad to see they trying to provide something for the gluten intolerant crowd, but it aint for a normal beer drinker.
