First gluten free beer and I don’t think I am gonna be rushing to try more any time soon. Notes of strawberries and kinda syrupy...

This is definitely an interesting beer, quite unusual. The strawberry-candy flavor is predominate, but there is also a subtle underlying syrupy taste. Strange taste for a beer, but ok.

This might be my highest rated gluten-free beer (I’m too lazy to check), but...ugh. Some strawberry, and an unpleasant astringency throughout. Bring on the Gluten!

Interesting beer that I find more drinkable than many of DFH’s "fruity’s".
I like the lightness and thinness to it-- especially since the aroma is so laden with juicy strawberries, it’s pleasant that the beer itself is not syrupy at all and actually has a relatively clean, dry finish for the fruitiness.
I also think the sorghum helps avoid any "lagery" flavor that would not have fit here.
Seems like a great drink for a really hot day, so I’m saving the rest of mine for that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting concept pulled off rather well! Golden orange pour. Bits of honey and berries up in the nose on this one. A lit ale flavor with a sweet honey malt touch, strawberries politely built into the body of the beer. A grainy flavor throughout which must be a kick from the sorghum. Really enjoy the honey flavors throughout in this. Light hop kick towards the finish blended with a tiny tart boost, which tastes great! Not over the top amazing, but a different concept pulled off well, and also making a gluten-free beer actually taste good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a fairly clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a fairly quick pace leaving behind a bit of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of strawberries with some honey, a touch of floral elements, some grains, and a touch of sourness.
T - Starts off with a kick of fresh strawberries, some honey, and a bit of grains. Through the middle, some more grains and bready flavor comes through alongside a hint of tart and sourness and some floral flavor. The finish is a mix of strawberries, sweet honey, and some grains.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. It feels smooth with sweet and lightly tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced beer with some good flavor, especially considering it is gluten free. I like the strawberry flavor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a short-lived white head. Smells of strawberries and honey, a bit floral. Taste is a bit wine-like, mildly honey and very mildly berry, sour, then sweet - an interesting flavor that I assume comes from the sorghum.

Draft. Golden/amber color. Nose is fruity and honey. Flavor is medium sweetness. When it the fruit/sorghum/malt/honey all come together in the finish it left a really unbalanced and foul flavor. Almost like a white wine that went bad. Not a fan.
