COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tweason’ale is a beer we brewed on the cusp of summer. It is a gluten-free sorghum based beer brewed with fresh strawberries from our friends at Fifer Orchards near Dover, Delaware. For the sorghum, we sourced a dark, sweet, syrup with notes of molasses and pit-fruit. We also used a a dark buckwheat honey with a beautiful hay-like, earthy-malty thing that we felt added the final touch to this Tweason’ale recipe.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 12 oz. Bottle: Pours a fizzy clear golden honey with a thin frothy head. Aroma is an earthy honey with an alcohol presence. Flavor is sweet and tarty with mild hints of strawberry. Has a thin body and a creamy texture in the mouthfeel. Refreshing!

JDBaker11058 (1204) - Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Appearance: deep honey gold with a very short white head that quickly vanishes, with no lacing. Aroma: suprisingly boozy, with notes of mead, honey, ’nilla wafers, and strawberry jam. Taste: sweet, with flavors of honey, strawberry jolly ranchers, club crackers, and wet cardboard. Finish: tart, tangy, and dry. Notes: A swing and a miss. Did not care for this at all. Too sweet, too tart, flavors were not complimentary, and I was really taken aback by the boozy notes, which seemed very out of place. Would not try again. Can’t all be winners, even from a brewery this good.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2012
This beer... with the light pink body looked a lil’ fruity but had no head to show for it. The smell was light and floral with some strawberries and leaves. I couldn’t think of anything other than the over-ripened strawberry flavor that lingered among the stale hop character. Nothing special in the finish.

Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Clear golden, like a light colored apple juice...no head. Funky Grainy aroma. Sweet with strawberries noticeable but not overpowering. Kind of watery. Not thrilling.

12 oz. bottle from Katzingers. Pours a reddish gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of strawberry, cream, wheat, straw, honey. Flavor of tart strawberry, wheat, and a bit of honey sweetness. Light body, high carbonation, tart and dry. Okay.

Bottle, pours clear amber w/ immediately-dissipating head, heavy synthetic strawberry aroma, super light and tannic with light sweetness and artificial strawberry flavor on finish

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Vaguely fruity nose, unripe strawberries, biscuit. Crystal clear amber, effervescent, thin head. No body at all. Honey flavor, but dry and tart. The fruitiness is now artificial tasting and almost a little hot. Little more flavor than a macro, seltzer-like texture. There are certainly better gluten free beers available. I really thought if anyone can make a good one it would be Dogfish Head, but it isn’t this beer.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2012 Location: 12 oz bottle shared by jcos, 3/16/12

Aroma: The nose is sugary sweet, with some honey, and lots of fruit
Appearance: It pours a pinkish-orange, clear appearance, and a fizzy white head
Flavor: The taste mid-heavy sweet (honey/fruit), with a mid-plus tart fruitiness too
Palate: The body is light, it has a fairly heavy carbonation, and a slight cloyingness as well
Overall Impression: This is an alright offering, but certainly not a winner. It is a little too sweet and fizzy for me, but the tartness of the flavor improves it a bit. It oddly almost feels kind of "mead-like" to me.

Bottle. Transparent gold pour with a pink tint to it. Big white head dissipates quickly. Strawberry’s come through nicely in the aroma, but there also is a little wine cooler character. Taste is grass and unripe strawberry. Body is thin and level of carbonation is low. Very easy to drink.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists of light strawberry, grass, and a hint of lemon... It’s a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of strawberry and apple. The finish has light lemon, grass, and a hint of sorghum. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it does the best job of hiding the sorghum flavor compared to any other gluten free beer I’ve had, but it’s still there...and I really dislike it.
