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.

Lemony aroma with a slight odd funkiness. Flavor is bright and floral. Balanced finish, but almost a hint of honey-water sweetness at the finish.

Aroma is grains, fruit and a hint of the expected rice and sorghum funk. The flavor is fruit, light citrus/hops, an undercurrent of rice and a tart finish. Better than expected although I’d have to say it wasn’t great.

A decent option for a gluten free beer. Taste is good with a decent malt background and a slight hoppiness. Better then I was expecting.

mansquito (3297) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Stolen from my temporarily gluten free room-mate: Pours really pale yellow. Aroma is all weird like... smells like a bastardized pale lager, which I guess it is. Hard for me to classify the difference. Taste is very minimal. Watery with a kind of candy finish. No hops to be found. Kind of sweet.

Pear and bubblegum aroma. Clear golden color. Bubbly white head. Tart bubblegum start with a mellow finish. Good for a gluten-free beer.

Well I tried it. Didn’t like it. Maybe if I needed to go on a gluten free diet this would suffice. Until then though, uh no.

Bottle:   Golden, fairly clear, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Sort of this sweet mushroomy like aroma.   Its a little cidery too.   Has a weird apple/pear juice sort of flavor up front.   A little mealy, but not as much as I expected.   Low hop, well nil actually.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Trying to wrap my head around this one.   For some reason it reminds me of what a sour ale would be without the sour.   Has this pale fruity content, but its also mealy.   Not bad, certainly different.
