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.

Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours clear pale straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of apple juice, with notes of yeast and hops. Sweetish flavour of apples, with sourish grainy notes and rough, estery touches. Very mild aftertaste, a little sourish. Lively carbonation. PErhaps a good refresher but not my favourite beer.

Sweet yeast and apple peel aroma, like all the sorghum beers seem to have to some degree. Light yellow color of a pils, bubbly non-beer like head. Minor hopping, finishes like a very dry cider. Has sort of a slimy texture. Not that differentiated from down market GF beers, which is fine in any case.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 This is a very good gluten free beer, and it is one of the only light gluten free beers I like. It has a light yellow color with an aroma that consists of hops, fruit, and grain. The beer is a light beer with tastes of earth, dried fruit, and a hint of caramel.

For a gluten-free beer, this is actually not bad. It has a slightly sweet profile, but still has enough hops to balance it out.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Almost clear light hay color with a small white head. Faint grain aroma, with some apple notes, rice and mellow grassy hops. Plain flavor, mostly fruity (apples), with some bready notes and low bitterness. Light body, thin, a bit astringent and far from a beer.

Poured a light gold/yellow with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was sweet with a very slight fruity hint. Taste was interesting to say the least - syrup, medicine, slightly sour with a mild hop finish. Palate was decent. Boy, how not having barley takes away from the flavor base. Actually not awful considering...

Clear light pale yellow, fleeting white head, some carbonation on the glass. Malty sweetness and lemon funk, interesting gluten free effort.
