3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 4/4/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of huge honey, tart strawberry, apple cider, pear, light caramel, light bread, and a touch of raspberry. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of honey, strawberry, pear, apple cider, wheat, floral, herbal, earth, and light tart raspberry. Zero bitterness; with lingering notes of honey, strawberry, pear, apple, raspberry, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Good flavor balance, with a fair amount of flavors and decent complexity; quite dry on the finish with zero cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly syrupy and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a pretty nice gluten free sorghum beer. A fair amount of nice flavors with decent balance; and extremely smooth to drink. This was pretty enjoyable stuff.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells of fresh strawberries with a touch of malts. Nice Orange color with hues of red. Flavors of syrup and a bit winey, the flavor falls flat and gives you syrup tougue. Not sure the body light but syrupy weird carbonation. This is not my cup of tea. Like dogfish head just this does not apply to me gluten free.

Smell is intense honey and strawberries, a ton of syrup presence, and not my fave. Pour is a still deep orange with semi clarity and a tiny ring of white. taste is oddly sickening honey and strawberry, very slimy or sticky aftertaste. Ugh....

Pours a light amber color. Aromas of caramel, a hint of nut, and some light fruit. Flavor is a sweet roasted taste, I think it could use some more hops. Finishes a bit sweet.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Odd aroma of malt and strawberries that are turning bad. Clear dark amber color, white head that drops to a full cover, lace that slides back in. Taste is strawberry that moves without incident through the swallow to a finish that is mostly fruit centered. Both malt and hops are hard to discern. All works okay, I suppose, but it doesn’t seem enough like a beer to receive more than a cursory glance.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
2.5 A: Clear light orange color. Fizzy white head falls as soon as it forms.
3.25 S: Smells more like a wine cooler than a beer. Strawberry and honey take me back to highschool sneaking whatever girly drinks we could find in our friends’ parents’ basements. It doesn’t smell bad though. Indeed, it smells pretty nice. The problem is that it’s in the same way that body lotion smells good.
3.0 T: The strawberry and honey also dominate the taste. This is a good thing considering how wretched most sorghum beers are. I don’t really know what sorghum is supposed to taste like, but from other sorghum beers I’ve had, I can only conclude that it’s garbage steeped in corn water. That said, this doesn’t taste much like a beer. It tastes like strawberry honey water and like I already mentioned, that makes this a good sorghum beer.
2.5 M: Mouthfeel is really weak. It’s a light watery body with moderate carbonation. Not much else to say.
2.75 D: Bad beer, but excellent sorghum beer. If you are a Celiac sufferer, this beer is for you. If you think gluten is the devil, stop being such a douchebag and drink a real beer.

I never thought I’d give a rating this low to a Dogfish Head beer, but here we are. It’s unimpressive in look and smell, but it’s just downright bad in taste and feel. Everything about it is weak and feels cheap, and I just can’t fathom how Dogfish Head’s name is on it. Avoid this beer.

Lots of strawberry on the initial taste, but then some overbearing sweet and sour notes. Not very pleasant .
