2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, shared with friends, including one with gluten allergies. Clear yellow color, minimal white head. Little loose lace. Lighter carbonation, dry texture. Something acidic to it. Sort of sour taste and texture that makes you think ’cider’, but the aroma is totally potato. Which is interesting, because I like potatoes. Kind of salty, sour taste... Longer aftertaste. My gluten-free friend doesn’t like beer to begin with, so she didn’t care for this either, BUT she did say she’d play beer pong with it! I call that a success! Another friend pointed it out that it had some hefe-like features. I am feeling the vanilla / clove notes... Most didn’t care for it, overall. Typical for a gluten-free beer. 6.9% is an impressive ABV, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle. For starters I did not think of this as a traditional beer (barley based). It is very refreshing, easy to drink. This is a tasty beverage. Sour apple, fruity,pear, I think I will have to get more. Great job Epic!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the brewery. Of course, this is an odd beer. Pours a clear golden color with very little head retention. A sweet lemon and ginger nose. The flavor almost reminds me of a herbal infused cider with apples and light metal, some sweet potato, grains. Very unusual, but drinkable. Better than the sorghum beers I’ve had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright golden color with light head retention. The nose has some good piney and citrusy notes with hints of gain. The taste reminds me of Grape-Nuts cereal at first then you get a berry tartness that takes over for the most part. The finish is floral and bitter. A medium to light mouthfeel, with a dry spicy aftertaste.
