3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Gotta be the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy grassy-ish aroma with some spicy hoppy notes. The flavor has lemony and grassy hops, a spritzy mouthfeel, and light apple/white grapes. I actually quite liked this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can pours clear gold with thirty second near white head of weak foam. The aroma drags up modest levels of sugary sweetness, a dry white paper earthy note and a couple of slivers of citrus fruit. As it warms it gets more Malt Liquor like with slightly chemical and pear to apple fruitiness. The taste has bitter lemon to lime to grapefruit sort of citrus notes that have a vague sort of sugary backbone to them helping to keep them grounded. The hop notes seem to stray into a bit of hop leaf astringency near midway and then again into the finish and that keeps the flavor from coming together in a cohesive manner. I think if this was a little closer to 40F serving temp and I was outside in the heat this might be a suitable choice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Easily the best gluten free beer that Iíve had! Pours with a very pale, very clear straw hued body with a massive foamy white head that slowly fades. Aromas are hoppy, herbal, citrus, lightly sweet pineapple, guava, medium esters. Otherwise pretty clean with a bit of a CO2 bite. Flavors are very clean, strawberry, low guava, citrus, dry, lightly sour. Clean, medium bitter, neutral-dry balance. Fizzy, seltzer, somewhat bland, but easy to drink. Both the best gluten free beer that Iíve had and the best (albeit limited) beer that Iíve had from this brewery. Grassy finish. Lively bubbles, very thin and very dry. Not half bad!

Tallahassee, Fl - Whole Foods Market - 12 oz can - at the bar. Clear, light golden, no head. Glue like aroma, some liqueur-like boozines. Plastic kind of flavor, some medicinal notes, some sour apple notes, almost cider-like. Thinnish mouthfeel. Had better gluten-frees.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can picked up at the state store
Appearance: Pours clear straw yellow with a fast fading white head and some lacing
Aroma: Citrus, oranges and tangerines
Taste: Citrus, fruity, lemon and herbal
Unique is the best way to describe this. I like it, very refreshing but has a bitter/herbal aftertaste that takes away from the rest of the beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours fizzy yellow amber with a small white head that dissipates almost immediately with minimal lacing and large bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of corn syrup and pine hops. Flavor is medium sweet, honey or corn syrup, with spruce, pine, and a bit of spiciness. Light bitter finish. Medium body and fizzy in the mouth, sweetish aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: † Very pale straw, clear, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. † Faint champagne yeastie like nose, touch of candied citrus peel... just a touch. † Tastes like a Pale Ale Mimosa, Champagne with a light Pale Ale. † Citrus is very minor. † Given its Gluten free its not too bad, and better than most. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Very little bitterness on the exit. † Seems to mainly be this Champagne like water, with a squeeze of orange juice in it. † Not an IPA would have again, but for Gluten free I at least didnt pour it out.   Lingering sweet lemon and lime.   A bit odd...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is citrus, vegetables and an odd note in the malts probably due to the sorghum. The flavor is citrus, vegetables/celery/spices, malts and a mild bitterness in the finish.

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.
Earlier Rating: 3/19/2011 Total Score: 2.5
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.
