2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from Appalachian Vintner, Asheville. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a large fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of earthy, grainy notes with lots of citrus hops. The taste is faint, pale malts, nuts, honey, very strong citrus hops with a bit of a tropical note. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, off balance.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, bubbly white head. Aroma is surprisingly hoppy and floral with a candy-ish note. Taste is sweet with caramel notes, soft molasses, rice notes and flowery soap notes. Body is light-medium and kind of thin at times with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more candy-ish notes, rice, potatoes and soft hops. These gluten-free beers just really aren’t worth it. Feel sorry for beer drinkers with Celiacs.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours amber color with a fluffy white head. Some fruity notes on the nose, but the sweet potato does not show through well. Medium carbonation. The finish is somewhat sour. Not for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a small, white head. Very light sweet aroma with a hint of spices and floral hops. Pretty bland with light sweet potato, molasses and floral notes. Smooth for a gluten-free beer but overall pretty boring.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours a clear golden yellow appearance with an off white head. A lot of spiciness in the nose along with earthy, herbal notes and a fair amount of spicy hops. Tangy fruity, quite spicy malty, herbal, a bit thin flavor. Better than many of the gluten-free atrocities on the market but still not worth my money.

Solid GF beer. There’s that metallic sorghum thing going on, but it’s muted compared to many others. This acts and feels like a real beer, with a nice hoppy backbone.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: tea, spices, apple cider, quite floral, some caramelized sugars.
Appearance: light golden color, faint haze, fizzy white head dissipates immediately.
Flavor: floral, herbal tea, slight molasses sweetness, a bit of sweet potato, some pine, tropical fruit.
Palate: light body, medium carbonation.
Overall: interesting brew, definitely drinkable, and a solid product for those unfortunate souls who can’t deal with the grains.

bomber. pours light straw whito head. nose is adjuncty sweet blab. mouth is light. not satisfying, even for a gluten free beer which is a travesty in of which itself, adding potato as substitute for part of the grain bill is a no bueno. overall if you are one who believes you have celiacs stick to the sorghum brews.

They aren’t making these other sugars taste much better than sorghum. Sorghum or no sorghum it isn’t great.
