2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Aroma is off-grains, strawberries and odd funk. The flavor is strawberries, off-malts (sorghum), mild pulp notes and a medium sweet finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Bubbly coppery amber, clear, with a smallish quick-diminishing bubbly white head. Smells of grain and sweetened strawberry. Taste is - man, that grain character is weird - light, oily, a little fake-seeming - this is VERY sweet stuff, like plantation sugar, and lots of it - still strawberry though. Light body, a bit acidic, airy and quick-finishing, has a slightly harsh sugary aftertaste. Ehhh - gluten-free and strawberry - it could have been worse.

Bottle. Juicy pour with almost no head. Looks like fruit juice. Aroma is like fresh strawberries. Flavour is less good. It is rather like a utywala beer but not as filling. There is a little honey and a little strawberry. Strawberry finish

12 ounce bottle. Ripe strawberry aroma, and pretty much the same taste-wise. It was one dimensional, easy to drink. Light in body, mild carbonation. Next in line please...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
looks lovely, a fizzy reddish bronze. fizzy head that gets lost quickly. smell, strawberry skin, yeasty, a hay funk. slightly honeyesque . tastes is where it disconnects. the honey is one the back-end and barely noticeable in the mouth. Strawberries are weak but there and that the most pleasing part of this beer as the start to dance with the honey. Still as this beer fades into a pleasant memory, the mouth is disappointed. If I want strawberries I’’ll get a samuel smith. another miss by DFH.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light beer/fruit punch combo appearance. Aroma of pungent, past-prime strawberry and passon fruit. Taste was relatively unremarkable, hay, beer, some watered down fruit. Definitely not a DFH favorite of mine.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Liquid strawberry and peach juice. Fizzy pinkish head fades quickly into a bubbly collar bordering a very thin pinkish bubbly film. Swirls creamy but with no lace. When held up to the light it glitters and glimmers like a polished jewel.
Strawberry and peach muffins. Freeze dried strawberries and peaches. Angel food cake soaked in freshly juiced strawberries and peaches. Sweet honey rolls along the edges. Honey glazed bran muffins in the middle. Essence of cucumber and lavender flitter about.
Sweet and bright followed by honeyed bran muffins and sorghum. Apricot and strawberry and peach in the finish – like biting into a fresh fruit still cold from being kept in the fridge. Angel food cake mouthfeel. Strawberry juice with some strawberry seeds for good tannic measure. Lemon and strawberry ice in the finish for bitterness and acidity that refreshes and brings me back for more.
I really liked this beer…or is it a beer…what is it? If you are so unlucky as to be allergic to malted barley and all the wonderful grains that go into making beer, then the Tweason’Ale from Dogfish is what you should be drinking. Forget all those other blah and blech faux beers out there and embrace the Tweason. I did.

For what it is, it is tasty. Good beer to drink when the weather is hot. Won’t be drinking it on a regular basis, but not going to dog it because I prefer a different style.

Pours copper with a moderate amount of white head and some visible carbonation. Smell is caramel, biscuit, trees, and citrus. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is VERY interesting, sweet and fruity, then somewhat bitter but still maintaining some fruitiness which all rounds out together in the aftertaste. Quite excellent.
