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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

12oz bottle-shared by jtc-pours yellow/gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet tofu, spearmint. Taste is sweet tofu/light malt, spearmint/dried fruit.

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.
