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.

Cloudy yellow. Big bubbles. Aroma is massive sorghum, some apple juice. Body is fairly full. Flavour is very sorghumy, with apples and alcohol coming in late. Pregunta - how much gluten do hops have that they had to be omitted from the recipe? Yes, it’s not brewed for me but damnit even Celiacs need hops in their beer!

Bottle. Very pale and clear yellow, white coca cola head. Aroma of straw, white pepper, citrus. Taste is bitter lemon. Not very beer-like, but tasty enough.

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2006
(12oz bottle, brewed July 06) Small white head atop clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, lime, some lemon, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, lime, grain -- caused a serious wince on the first taste but a couple of sips in it was somewhat tolerable. Light body, low carbonation. If this is the best gluten-free beer, I hope I never develop a gluten allergy.

A strange, but not unpleasant aroma. Something of yeast, fruit and honey. Pale brassy color with a frothy white head that laced a very little. Something of a berry aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Near medium mouthfeel. There is indeed a cideriness here. Maybe with a bit of citrus. It does tend towards sour rather than sweet. Leaves something of a herb/veg mouth coat. Finishes with no bitter and a little citrus sour in the back of the mouth. Probably an acquired taste, but really not a bad thing.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours very, very pale yellow with an unimpressive white head. S: The aroma very heavy on apple. Starts off with some sour, green apple and is followed by apple cider. It’s pretty watery, however, and there really is not much going on in the aroma. Maybe a light funk to it. T: As with the aroma, a heavy emphasis on apples. Green apple and apple cider are once again present with a light rice note, too. Some hints of grass, but overall it’s quite watery. M: Light/watery in body with a medium carbonation O: Slightly better than Redbridge, but still pretty unpleasant.

yellow with a slight haze, whispy white head that’s easily roused to produce some drippy lace, light sweet candy aroma with a hint of spices, good body, nice unusual sweetness, balanced with some light spices, an interesting experience, labeled as a beer made from sorghum and rice extract

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture. Light balanced flavor with a light bitter finish of short duration. My expectations where not met.
