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.

3/24/12. 12oz bottle. Clear copper pour, almost orange... it kinda reminds me of Jello. There’s a small khaki head that’s gone instantly - barely a film, and no lacing. I had a 100% buckwheat mead recently, which was... interesting, so let’s see how this goes. Slightly fruity aroma with molasses and... medicine. Almost astrigent, and slightly sour. Weird conglomoration of flavors... medicine, sour milk, fruitiness, and a weird, lingering flavor of sour hay and malt. My my... if you need gluten free drinks, quit drinking or drink cider. This is awful. I’m not going to finish it, and I have another bottle. Thankfully I split the 4-pack with someone else.

Clear orange with a pink hue. The strawberries are heavy on the nose. The palate is a lively balance of effervescence and slightly sweet honey. Light bodied with a medium finish. Not sure what other raters were looking for from a gluten free fruit beer.

bottle. orange with a slight pink hue and a small white head. strawberry in the nose with strong medicinal notes. flavors of strawberry, bitter-unsweet malt and a used up piece of spearmint gum. abv astringency and phenols in the finish. the strawberry is it’s best characteristic. light body. i’ve had better gluten-free beers.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cereal, husks), with notes of airplane glue, ammonia, burnt plastic, bile/vomit, honey, and strawberry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Goddamn, what the fuck?! What an abomination. Holy crap...things like this make me wonder how brewers let stuff like this go out on shelves. This is not quite as ammonia-rich as those two Crispin ciders I had, but it’s strong and disgusting, and chemical-rich in many other ways. Sure, most G-F beers suck pretty hard, but this is honestly one of the worst. The attempt at covering up the train wreck of chemicals with honey and strawberry kind of makes things worse, providing a vomit-like odor as a backdrop to the higher alcohols and disturbing phenols. I’m not exactly a fanboy of DFH, but I certainly expected a lot better than this. A certified drain pour with a middle finger flipped at the empty bottle.

Pours clear golden with a light orange hue and a very small white head. The aroma is sweet strawbs and then unique flavor of the sorghum and/or buckwheat comes through. The flavor is light tart strawberry, almost winey in flavor. The body is very light with good carbonation.

This was one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. I love Dogfish Head but this is horrible. Reminded me of Michelob Ultra. Bad taste, worse after taste. I had to choke down the last drop. A plea to the brewers at DFH....Please ’retire’ this beer, yesterday.

SamP01 (566) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Pours an coppery orange hue with a small short lived white head. Aroma of berries, strawberries, some honey. Taste is a combination of sweet berries, predominantly strawberry, with a kind of nutty dry weird bitter taste. Palate is light crisp body with mild soda like carbonation. Finish is sweet berries, ending is a rather weird and unpleasant combination of flavors. I did not like this at all, could not finish drinking the whole bottle. Overall I would pass on this.

Not sure what a fucking sorghum is, but if this is what it is, then fuck my gluten allergy, i’m going to still drink beer. If it makes me shit like a madman, then I shit like a mad man. Gotta sacrifice. Nose of strawberry cough syrup, gross honey, and weird grain. Pours golden, thin head. The flavor is more strawberry cough syrup, medicinal, gross as honey, some chemicals and shit. Fuck this stuff is horrible. Couldnt drink it. Left a weird filmy feeling on the palate and mouth.

Smelled nice, tasted really bad. Tried it in bottle then again in a pint glass and still tasted bad. not much of a head, was a nice yellow though.

As good as a gluten free beer can be. Aroma was pretty weak. A slight strawberry smell but it was very weak. Pour was a slightly cloudy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was very weak. A faint sourness peeked through the strong and heavy carbonation. If nothing else, this beer was very refreshing and crisp. Great lawnmower beer.
