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.

To everyone who is gluten intolerent: I’m sorry, you poor bastards, look into wine and hard liquors. No one should be subjected to this, no matter what. Wierd thin palette and flat, bad, slightly sour flavor.

Pours yellow/water with a thin white head. Smells mildly fruity. Tastes of watered down fruit juice with hints of apples and pears. Not a whole lot going on here.

12oz beer-An aroma of sourness on a golden yellow body with a head that dissipates quickly. A light body. there is no taste on the front end but a very sour one on the back end.

Not great smell. What is a ’traditional’ ale? Just the slightest head. Initial taste is semi-decent, but then wow, it gets a bad honey flavor that is at the same very ricey. I wouldn’t call it a session beer like the label. It would take me a whole session just to get through it. If I was intolerant to gluten I think I would just choose not to drink anything than be forced to drink this.

High overall for being gluten free. My fiancee has Celiac, so we tried this one. Hopefully some of the other gluten free brews will less mistakeable for carbonated water...

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 Slightly yellow with only slight wisps of bubbles. Aroma is is very light and sweet. 4/1/4/2/7 On tap at the Lakefront brewery. Much better than I remember - perhaps they continue to improve this recipe. It’s true that the aromas and flavors are light, but they aren’t bad at all. Especially for a summer beer, there was plenty of flavor and body - sweet and lightly spiced. It finishes clean and refreshing. It was also the only beer my gluten-free girlfriend was able to try on the tour. Giving up bread and baked goods is one thing, but giving up delicious craft beer is another. Hats off to Lakefront for helping our gluten-free comrades.

The aroma is light and sweet. The pour is a light yellowish golden with a small bubbly white head. The flavor has a sweetness and a very weak finish. The aftertaste is non-existent. Overall an uninspiring beer.

12 oz bottle. Clear light golden color with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Light apple juice aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet with a fruity finish. Interesting, but not my bag.

New Leaf Market, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with very little head. Difficult to place aroma - some spice, baking bread, faint licorice. Slightly bland flavor. Somr seltzer and tonic water notes, some mineral water; hint of cherries. Slightly medicinal. Not very beer-like in my opinion. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Nice for a novelty, but very bland and uneventful.

Big boofy head. Very clear with big bubbles. Bad label. green, diacetyl, homebrew character. Cidery. Sweet finish is quick. Lightly sweet and tart. Poor offering.
