3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Hazy orange/amber with 3 fingers of white sea foam that retain well.
S - Grapes, green apples, candy sugar, hints of bubblegum alcohol, spice, slightly acidic.
T - Tart fruit, green grapes and apples, clean white wine flavors, spicy soft grain on the back of the palate. Sweet middle with some yeast esters mixed in. Dry grassy hops clean up the sweetness on the finish.
M - Smooth and clean body with a fizzy dry finish.
Sweet and clean tartness with a dry fizzy finish. This exceeded my expectation being gluten free. I applaud the brewery for this as it doesnít stack up to a BSPA or a Tripel but has the characteristics without the bready malt. I would drink this if I had an intolerance to gluten.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Im not going to ífaultí this beer for being gluten free or judge it as a gluten beer.) Dark golden. Small white head. A little drippy lace. Aroma is fruity, sour, a little funk. Flavor is white wine, mild sour fruit, green apple, funky . Medium body. Slightly drying. More than a decent gluten free choice.

Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal white head. Aroma has honey and raisins. Flavor follows suit...bit of a champagney note...mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is light and lively and the finish is winey/fruity...white wine...and dry.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold and smells of fruity Belgian yeast. It tastes sweet with a slightly dry finish. The carbonation is fairly lively and the body light to medium. Itís got the sugary character Iíve found in other gluten frees though not as bad. The alcohol is noticeable in the flavor though. This was one of the beers I had given Dan for christmas.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Maybe just a bit sweet for my tastes. Very glad theíre more and more gluten free beers out and I would recommend this higher than the sorgum ones. I taste a kind of a banana, bubblegum, medium flavor with a mid bitter aftertaste.
My rating is probably artificially high since itís been so long since Iíve had gluteny delicious beers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to a gluten intolerant friend. Pours light amber with a huge super-fizzy off-white head that dissipates almost instantly leaving a network of huge foamy bubbles in the glass and oddly clumpy lacing. Aroma is yeast, fruit, lemon, windex. Flavor is quite sweet, spicy and oddly astringent, yeasty. Lemony rye-spice aftertaste. Medium body.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a great attempt. Spivey with hints of pear. Tastes like rice and saki. Passable I guess but not super. Needs gluten.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hmm, I understand that this is a gluten free beer but itís more like a cider with a hint of a Belgium somewhere in there. The pour is a thin and clear rustic color with no head or lacing. The aroma is very cider like - quite sweet. The taste is sweet up front and finishes with itís alcohol potency. Possibly a hint of a triple in there but not really. It serves its purpose I guess?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dirty golden with an unimpressive white head. Aroma is pale malt and bubble gum. Flavor is busy, and I must say, not well balanced. Sweet pale malt and fruitiness, followed by a sourness which ends at the swallow with the taste/feeling you just chewed an aspirin. Some alcohol evident at the end. This is only marginally better than most strong malt liquors.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden with a large white head. Sweet syrupy nose with fruity notes. Sweet fruity flavor with some spice notes and a hint of floral hops. Sweet and fruity finish with some metallic notes. Decent for being gluten free, but otherwise not so good.
