COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An all-sorghum beer. New Grist, a beer for Celiacs brewed from sorghum and gluten-free yeast grown on molasses. New Grist is the first “official” gluten free beer in the U.S., although it cannot technically be called “gluten-free” until established governmental guidelines are determined for all products claiming “gluten-free” status. In the interim, this Celiac-safe beer can be called “barley-free,” and is a welcome product to those who need to live on restricted diets due to intolerance to gluten, a protein found in common brewing grains such as barley, wheat, rye, oats, spelt, kamut and triticale.

superspak (4388) - Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 8/15/2016. Pours fairly crystal clear pale straw color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Solid aromas with balanced sorghum and earthy hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of lemon cracker, honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, honey, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of sorghum and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and minimal astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and slightly grainy/creamy mouthfeel that is good. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a solid gluten free pilsener style. Good robustness and balance of sorghum and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

12 oz. bottle. Poured clear golden, white head. Aroma was fruity, citrus and some yeast. Taste was sweet, and apple juice like.

1pintatatime (134) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours almost champagne colored from a bottle. Aroma is sweet, almost like cider. Taste is crisp and again, very much like a cider. There’s a bit of what I describe as a home brew flavor in the finish.

Block (2122) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pale pour, white head. Aroma of grass, apples, yeast. Flavor is pretty much shit. It’s like a bad cider mixed with stale bread.

AbbeyRoade (517) - Missouri, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Bleh. This was like a really, really crappy champagne. Sour, bitter, carbonated fizzy drink that was foul all around. I pity the Celiac patients...

YigSvartka (274) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Transparent yellow gold with a quickly dissipating head. Notes of apple (unexpectedly), honey, and grain in the aroma. Thin, light bodied. Surprisingly pleasant pilsener taste with the addition of apple and honey which supercedes most macros. Wee bit of hop in the finish. Far superior to Bard’s.
