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.

I lile the pretty orange color this beer has. The aroma is unusual. Grape, bubblegum and dough. Smells like wine and candy. Taste resembles that of red sparkling wines to me. I actually think its quite good, except for some bittering taste that lingers. I like the sweeetness with a taste of grapes, though a sourness and the bitterness dominates. All in all the taste is not balanced and that impression stays on. Medium to high carbonation. I love that Dogfish does beers like this, in this case a style of beer original to the continent of Africa to my knowledge, but in regard to the taste, this leaves less of a good image than other great beers they have made.

I’ll say "pah!" to all the naysayers and although I can see some glaring faults, this is a fun beer experience. Orange, golden color, clear. Caramel, wood, vinyl and alcohol on the nose. Intriguing flavors with a funky honey, floral note and fruits that doesn’t unequivocally shout "strawberry". I find the sweetness to be reasonably restrained. Alcohol remains noticeable. Worth trying. Bottle.

Pours light Amber with almost no head. Too sweet for my palate. Tastes like a cider. Smells and tastes yeast. You can give it a pass! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (15370) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden-orange in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lightly reminiscent of tapestrly glue. Fruityness. Forestish notes in the flavor, fruityness, glue and birch. Medium body, soft carbonation. Lasting finish. Some faint notes of strawberries in the finish. Not much pleasant this one, the strawberries fail to show off and I guess it’s the sorghum that does bad to the flavor and aroma. 150513

Orangeröd vätska med avslaget skum. Doftar färska hallon. Lite citrussyrlig smak som stretar mot en lätt sötma. Inte särskilt god.

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.
