Wow horse piss. What little aroma there is smells like apple juice. Looks like soapy urine. Head completely disappears. Flavor is way too sour.Palate is acidic. This shit sucks. I canít finish this 22.

Pours a very light gold with white head, very carbonated. Cereal type grains, but sweet on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes light. Not much here.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours clear yellow with a fizzy white dissipating head. Among the GF beers Iíve had, this one is one of the better ones. Cidery and light, but it was drinkable.

Bottle share w/ Travlr. Light gold with a small head. Sort of pissy lemon, little else. Taste isnít agreeable. Green apple. Pretty lightweight. Strange rice flavor. Light body, soft carb. Not good.

This is a gluten free beer that tastes kind of beer-like but not quite. It is crystal clear golden in the glass and mostly headless. It actually smelled like a nice, hoppy APA upon opening and I thought for a brief second I was in for something that wasnít going to be all that bad. Unfortunately, that moment didnít last and the aroma quickly waned to a sort of light honey-like floral aroma. The flavor is a little bit sweet and apple-y and quite bitter in an earthy grassy kind of way. It seems to me like these gluten free beers should taste more like regular beers but they always taste all kinds of strange. They get this cheap rum kind of character from being brewed from too much sugar is my guess but I really have no idea. Anyway, Iíd leave this stuff alone unless you just have to drink something that calls itself beer and canít consume gluten.

man...hard to find accurate info on this one. advertised as an ipa at the store, but it says 5% on the bottle, more an APA abv. Fox Tail on RB and BA are for an 8.1% IIPA, which this is definitely not. So, went with what the brewers website says. All said and done, itís not bad at all for what it is, and ok overal. kinda weird tasting to tell you the truth. soapy, perfumy hops in the aroma and flavor. i donít know if itís the lack of malt, or if this is sorachi ace hops. feel is light and tingly, which kinda works for the style. looks light hazy yellow. probably the 2nd best gluten-free Iíve had, not that that is saying much, and also the 2nd best JJ beer, which says even less...but still"

The aroma has hops and grains with a slight yeast quality. The appearance is straw gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable for the gluten free crowd.

Bottle with jackl. Clear pale yellow color, almost flat. Aroma of perfume, herbs, spice. Taste is bitter and herbal. Not a bad attempt, drinkable.

Pale Yellow Color, Medium Bubbly Head Dissipates Quickly, No Lacing. Cider or Champaign Like Aroma that reminds me of Apples. Tastes like champaign, apples, citrus, light bitter ending. Waaaay over carbonated, very hard to drink until. Have to wait for fizz go away, makes it easier to drink. Thank God, This one has no Sorghum in it, so it is actually drinkable and somewhat enjoyable Glutten Free option for people that need it. OK for what it is...
