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 - My first gluten free beer. Sweet apple juice with a bit of yeast. Pale clear yellow with no head. Very sweet and dry but I still taste apples. More like a cider than a beer. Not as bad as I expected with the reviews, but not really a beer.

jhliesen (735) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle-- yuk, sweet, sticky fruit flavor and aroma, super light color with lots of carbonation. Reminds of Homer’s Mountain Dew quote: Homer: Now, what do you have to wash that awful taste out of my mouth? Khlav Kalash Vendor: Sorghum Beer or Crab Juice. Homer: Blecch! Ew! Sheesh! I’ll take a crab juice.

[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Lakefront ][ $1.50 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 8.18.14 ]
>> Clear straw pour with okay white foam. Good lace. White grape juice cocktail nose. Sweet white grape juice cocktail taste with spicy, odd sorghum flavors that I’m not used to. Becomes something like pineapple gummy bears. Really nice aroma actually. Weird pineapple hard candy taste with a lot of sugar. Not so bad really.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique March 2014. Too grainy in all aspects for me. Tasted very earthy.

Pale yellow with a wispy white head. Alfalfa. Peanuts. Fair sweetness. Some light spices? Maybe some red apples? I don’t really know what sorghum smells or tastes like, but I imagine the prominent character here is from that. To be fair, gluten free beers should have their own category. Compared to non gluten this is ok at best. For what it is, its a drinkable non gluten

One of the best "gluten-free" I have tasted. Luckily you can find in Oklahoma liquor stores.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet toffee, apple cider, some tart citrus, thin and watery, candied fruit, what a strange combination and in this case that’s not a good thing.

zeke626 (423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, pours a cloudy, pale yellow body with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of apple, fruit, and champagne. Taste is very light, almost watery. Clean finish.

Bamsen78 (3138) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
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.
