Bottle, shared at the table at Radio Maria (Ordered by our celiac friend Rachel). In my experience, strawberry makes for a poor fruit choice in beers as it lacks any tartness and tends to come off as too sweet. This is no exception. Add to this the buckwheat honey and it’s definitely too sweet for me.

4 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into stemmed tulip glass. Nose of strawberry. A little opaque, amber, and lots of carbonation. Taste of strong strawberry. A little grassiness. Sogrum adds an interesting dimension. A little strange. Fairly dry. Campaign-like, in a way. Honey sweetness.

bottle from kihoskh.
You can do two bad things to a beer. alcohol free and gluten free. the latter is by far the worst thing taste wise, imo. So let’s see how Dogfish Head have decided to go about this. It’s not easy.. clear dark yellow, amber hue, small white head. Aroma of honey and strawberries, and some wild notes, aroma could pass for a mead, or even a weird cider. At least it’s interesting. Flavor is herbal, sourish, wild yeasty notes, strawberries. Tastes like *something* was fermented, but not like beer. closest beer relative flavor wise would be some kind of wild ale. The dry herbal bitterness never go sour (which might become interesting) but just stays this wild yeasty herbal kind of flavor. Like a pretty messed up saison.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Golden-amber body with great clarity & a soapy white head that settles quickly to a ring. Fake strawberry candy aroma. Very sweet, loaded with candied strawberry, honey, & a strange plasticy off-tone. Flavor is gross. Overly sweet strawberry & honey candy-like flavors, plastic, metal, & just a strange astringent finish. Chalky & a bit medicinal, too. Just an awful beer to force down.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strawberry aroma with hints of honey. Appearance has a light strawberry tint with a small white head. Flavor has strawberry notes upfront and honey notes in the back. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Overall, not bad for a gluten free beer.
