2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
NV Whole Foods bottle. I know Iíve said it before but man am I glad Iím not gluten intolerant...Boring, pale yellow pour. Aroma started like sweet hops but quickly moves into a weird gym-shoe smell. Itís a BIG flavor but reminds me of alka-seltzer and green apples. Bold, not really good and why in the world is this 8+ ABV?

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Had no idea this was so high in ABV when tasting. So pale not even yellow. No head. Faint scent of sugar. †Apple juice with a couple drops of vinegar.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a hazy bright straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma reminds me of peach gummy rings. Taste is sweet fruits into medicinal alcohol burn. Iíve tasted far worse gluten-free beers. If I couldnít have gluten this might be an alright choice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is my first gluten-free beer, so Iím going into this a bit hesitant. I appreciate that these exist, but I havenít particularly heard good things about their taste. This one though is pretty decent if ya ask me. A light, orange zest/grapefruit aroma. Taste itself is pretty watery with grapefruit in the taste, and a decently bitter finish. The finish is pretty crisp, and the body is maybe too watery but I like it enough. Oh well. Body is very light, and I mean seriously if you told me this is some sort of mellowed grapefruit juice Iíd likely believe it. Nothing to go out of your way to get, but it was nice to try and a pleasant surprise. Iíll point out that this description on the site states that itís 8.1% alcohol, but this bottle says 5% alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
OMG! Aroma in a gluten-free beer! This has a nice fresh hop aroma. Almost no color. This is quite strainy. A nice dry finish, that is really better than the body of the beer. Certainly No.1 or 2 in gluten-free beers Iíve had, but...donít think Iíd buy it again.

My wife thought this was terrible, but I found it drinkable and one of the best Gluten-free beers Iíve had to date. Not much aroma. Appearance is very thin and clear. The flavor is dry and crisp like a pilsener.

Some yeast aroma. Golden coloured and yeasty with a little bitterness in a crisp and dry finish.
