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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber/copper with a small amount of off white head that disappears quickly with little or no lacing. The aroma is actually pretty subdued; there is only a small hint of tart strawberries with some honey and grass notes. There is even less strawberry in the flavor. There is some tartness, but it seems to be dominated by the sorghum grassiness. The taste is actually a bit offensive, but the beer got slightly more drinkable over time. I enjoyed the momentary tartness, but the finish was also pretty watery. This is probably because there were really no malts or hops to speak of; the taste is so heavily constituted of the soghum and buckwheat. This was my first experience with a gluten-free beer and is certainly not something I would go out of my way to buy again.

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.

Pretty good beer, and good for you. The fruit flavor is actually very pleasant.

bartzluke (123) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2015
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.

tectactoe (3000) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
