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.

Pours clear gold with small white head. Aroma is sweet strawberry’s. Very light watery body with some rather unpleasant bitterness on the back end. The strawberrys taste is very light. On the malt side the sorghum doesnt give the beer much of a body and it has a light sweetness to it. Not very good.

hershiser2 (1227) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours clear pinkish-amber-golden with no head. Smells of lager, strawberry, grass, and bubble gum. Tastes of glue, strawberry, and honey. Glue lingers. Blah.

Clear orange pour with a 1 finger, creamy to soapy bright white head. Aroma is sorghum, strawberries, toasted earthy grain, and fruity honey. Flavor is sorghum, weak strawberry, buckwheat earthiness and some odd acidity that I can’t really pin down. Light body, light carbonation and dry, to slightly oily feel throughout. Not very good, but as far as gluten free beers go this is OK. As it warms it get oddly boozy for 6%ABV.

Nero55 (720) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Golden/copper with thin off white head. Aroma of honey, strawberry, and light syrupy notes (sorghum?). Medium/light body, medium sweetness and tartness upfront, some bitterness, and a strawberry notes with a syrupy finish. One of the better gluten free beers I’ve had.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Medium high creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear amber body. Mild malty strawberry buckweet aroma with an acidic honey note. Bitter sweet flavor, more sweet than bitter though, fruity lemon, litte hops bitterness, low carbonation, long sweet finish. Interesting.

liquidhedonism (66) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2014
12 oz bottle from Uptown Market in Beaverton, OR. Aroma is obviously very fruity, but also fairly tart. Mouthfeel is crisp, sharp, and bubbly. Taste is tart and sweet, with a sour finish. Not undrinkable, but not a favorite either.

Bought at Uptown Market. Great summer beer! Yes, it is light, fruity, maybe a little gimmicky. Let’s face it, when it is really hot outside you can drink a s-load of Coors Light or something like this that actually tastes good! Nice strawberry flavor, light in the mouth and easy going down! A sure win for a hot day.

Poured from bottle in a red tinted amber colour with decent sized head that dissipated rather quickly. An earthy of aroma of honey and strawberries confuses the senses as an equally earthy malt honey flavor is introduced. Has a sour and dry after taste. Definitely an acquired taste.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a reddish/brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy notes with light strawberry flavours is a weird mix and not the most enticing. Taste is also dominated by loads of unrefined grainy notes with some light unsweetened strawberry flavours. Body is light with OK carbonation. Body is light with OK carbonation. I’ll leave this one to people that don’t tolerate gluten.

BiereLuc (898) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bière dorée, scintillante, légèrement voilée. Le nez est tout en fraises avec un soupçon de gomme baloune. En bouche, bien qu’elle soit un peu mince, la bière étale ses saveurs fruitées (principalement la fraise encore ici) dans un soupir plus que rafraîchissant. Cette bière n’a pas une note incroyable, mais je la considère sous-estimé. Dans le style (sans gluten + fruits), c’est très réussi.
