COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A gluten free pale that has citrus notes and is light bodied. You will find no sorghum in this beer, but rather organic rices, nectars, and north american hops.

So this gluten-free beer from a 50Ę end-of-stock bin at Binnyís finally lets me tick Nevada off my list of states. Like most GF brews, it pours with a lot of fizz and a fizzy, gluey head that goes away quickly. Pale straw color. It is missing the sour apple smell of a lot of sorghum-based beers. But the smell remaining is mostly mineral water. But the taste just is not worth the trip. Some fizz with stale pear juice and curdled milk from the rice. Some hop bite, at least. But with the new methods for deglutenizing malt beers, this one needs to decide if it wants to stay in the picture.

Dogbrick (9350) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Sample at Kurtkeller 020: Stout-tastic 01 on 02/22/2015. Clear pale golden color with rising bubbles and a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and grain. Light-bodied with an herbal hops character with grain and citrus in the background. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Below average overall.

PorterPounder (6143) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2015
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.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
[Can] Fizzy yellow pour with no meaningful head on top. Aromas of green apple and wet grass. Tastes like cheap champagne, sweet apples and sickening residual sugars. Legitimately terrible. Almost a drain pour.

maxwelldeux (4160) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Can. Pours a mostly clear tannish color with a moderate off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose actually seems apply to me, with just a bit of grains coming in at the end. Taste is like a dry crappy cider, with just a bit of apple to it. Some odd dirt is coming through.

Fantomasus (279) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 4, 2014
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.

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"

Travlr (15635) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle with jackl. Clear pale yellow color, almost flat. Aroma of perfume, herbs, spice. Taste is bitter and herbal. Not a bad attempt, drinkable.

BOSSbrewer (2685) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
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.

TXBadger (1887) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2014
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.

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.
