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.

12 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a transparent orange/copper color, medium carbonation, white ring upon the glass with a small white film and several small frog eyes upon the surface for a head. Aroma of raw pizza dough, and honey. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is extremely light, sourness in the middle, finish is has some strawberries. Old bottle definitely, but still not too bad.

daje (2556) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle. Light amber body with a small head. Aroma of artificial strawberry, honey. Lightly tart taste of strawberry jam, sugar, mild orange. Feels watered out, as the taste kind of disappears abruptly. It’s not all bad, but it does get boring quick.

Bottled. Sticky yellow pour. Honey, strawberry but really kind of nasty. Avoid even if you’re celiac.

This brew is off-centered for sure. Odd combination of flavored that kinda works. I don’t know what pit fruit is, but strawberry and honey are present. I’d have liked for the strawberry to taste a little more natural (it smells good) but in the aftertaste the combo of berry, honey, and sorgum is a bit strange. Overall, one of DFHs weaker offerings."

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 (1228) - 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.

fidelis83 (1975) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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 (751) - 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.
