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.

Ferris (2026) - Burnaby, British Columbia, - FEB 5, 2013
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.

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.

dekester1 (299) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2014
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.

hockeybeerguy (910) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 5, 2014
It pours an extremely clear golden yellow color and leaves the same colored body with a slim half finger white foamy head that immediately dies within about twenty seconds, carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The aroma is based around lemon juice coming through in a bland yet somewhat earthy funky sort of way, could be construed as offensive, but really not bad to me. In the taste, the lemon juice is back with some apple cidery and a somewhat ginger sort of puckering aspect to it, and then the aftertaste hits me bad, as its basically a harsh sort of lemon/apple juice that basically nails your tongue to the bottom of your mouth. There also isn’t any finish. Its super easy on the palate and the carbonation just assaults my mouth and tongue more so than any AIPA could ever do, but the way it assaults it is just plain bad. Overall, I would not have this again, and it makes me feel bad for those who have to drink this. My suggestion is to have a Widmer’s Omission before this.

We'll out of beers to rate at this bar. Another gluten free beer that tated really fruity. Smells fruity and has a wine tasting finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Is this beer or a white wine or cider? I guess if you have to live gluten-free this works, but if not, it has such an odd aroma and taste it is just not worth it.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle: Pours slightly hazy, pale gold with a soapy, white head. Scent is lemony, grassy. Taste is sweet, lemon/citrus...honey.. Almost like a sugary fruit beer. One of the better tasting gluten-free beers I’ve tasted.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a hit hazy, light straw yellow appearance with a small white head. Lemony, a bit tangy, slightly sweet, cake/grainy, almost salty like aroma. Kind of twangy, lemon poppyseed bread flavor. Almost a bit tart. Kind of watery. Slightly candy-like flavor. Hope I don’t develop Celiac disease anytime soon.

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.
