2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear golden hued body with a small white head that fades fast. Aromas are earthy, starchy, medium hop presence, mild sweetness, fruity esters. Herbal fruity, citrus and a bit of a mild DMS-like note. Flavors are dry, earthy, starchy, vegital, with some floral hops. Quite bitter with a brief duration of flavors. Light acidity, lots of apple like esters, some fermented molasses notes (I brewed a beer a while back with way too much molasses and it produces a distinct sharp note), honey, light orange. Earthy, soil. Lively bubbles, dry and thin. Not the greatest thing ever, but I am glad I donít have celiac disease.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Poured apple juicey golden with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet honey and corn-like notes with some sweet potatoes when you dig deeper.. some odd tanginess that I couldnít place as well. The flavor found some green apple tanginess throughout, with sweet potatoes and molasses at the core.. fresh, dank earthy bitterness around (light-moderate).. finished with a clash between the tanginess and earthy sweetness.. odd, but it grew on me a bit. Medium-bodied and a touch sharp on the palate.. interesting, but Iíll take my glutens.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, resin), with notes of lemon zest, pepper.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Pretty good, at least as far as GF beers go...this definitely lacks the nasty horse feed stink of most sorghum-based beers, and does in fact pretty much resemble ordinary malt odor. This comes off as a hoppy American Wheat in the nose, for the most part. In the mouth itís very tart, like a cider but without any apple character. Highly attenuated; thereís very little sweetness left in this, so itís a bit unbalanced. Still, itís substantially better than most train wrecks in this field, so itís definitely worth a try if you canít stomach gluten.

They arenít making these other sugars taste much better than sorghum. Sorghum or no sorghum it isnít great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma, with light floral hops and a strange almost spicy hint. The flavor is sweet and grainy, with flowery notes, maple sugar and a weird spicy note that must come from the sweet potatoes. Pretty good.
