"within the realm of G-free beers, and/or summer quenchers this one has itís place. light bodied with near champagne like efervesence. bright orange/red hue. smells of mainly citrus. nice to not have the odd sweetness of sorghum in a G-free beer. Still not spectacular, but fairly nice."

Tap at GI Clybourn. Pale clear golden pour. Small head. Sweet fruity aroma and taste. Bold, sharp, and good.

Sammy (10882) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
On tap at Wriggleyville. Resembling a saki, this is a beer based on quinoa. Sourish from the get go, with some strawberry sweetness in there (not enough apparently). A tad below average mouthfeel. Slight pinking tinge. Doesnít work.

Quiona-based gluten free brew. The quinoa isnít as harsh as sorghum although this brew does remind me of other commercial gf brews with a tart flavor but this one isnít too bad.

deyholla (9912) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear pale grapefruit with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit/citrus note with backing light fruit. Flavor begins with fruit and citrus but finishes with a sweet watermelon jolly rancher note.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft at Clybourn. Pours a pinkish color with a fizzy soda head. Nose is tart, light minty note. Typical gluten free thing going on. Floral notes are present. On tasting, thin and fizzy with a definite white wine quality. Light citrus and crisp. Tartness from the high CO2 overall. One of the better gluten free beers that Iíve had, but Iíd rather drink mead.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Interesting concept. Pours a hazy golden hue with a pinkish ruby red grapefruit hue. A small frothy whitish head dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are grapefruit, a good deal, some graininess, earth, grass. Quinoa, some bread, lots of lively grapefruit grows. Initial is light bodied, spritzy and soda water and grapefruit up front. Gentle citrusy qualities and effervescent light body. Malt body is tiny, a bit watery, like spritzy grapefruit and soda water, a touch of malty sweetness. It tastes ok, but it falls far from what Iíd expect beer to be. Touches of cranberry and gentle red fruit mix into a bolder grapefruit element, some lemon, touch of sweetness from the Quinoa. Odd. Light. itís not bad, but hard to gauge. I like the flavor and aroma, but I could drink grapefruit juice and soda water religiously. Body and backend are lacking as the finish is just grapefruit juice. Itís not very beerlike, but then again a Gluten free offering wonít be. Iíd rather drink it than a lot of other stuff though.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2012
draft... really interesting beer... medium but bright pink, light off white head... interesting smell, barley, grapefruit a bit of spice... reminds me of a grapefruit vodka drink with an off finish that I always get in organic beers, easy to drink but for the finish, worth trying
