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.

Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with high carbonation. Aroma is fruity. Flavor follows. Very light bodied. Decent gluten free option. But not otherwise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear light straw color with a billowy white foamy head with tons of bubbles popping within. The head fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny bit of bubbly lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a slightly sour lemon aroma mixed with some green apple and a little bit of a more grape like aroma. Along with these are some light cracker smells and a little bit of grass. Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter rice and somewhat grape juice like sweetness. As the taste advances more sourness of a lemon and sour green apple flavor comes to the tongue. A little bit of a cracker flavor that is present at the start as well fades more and more as the taste moves onto the end with it being replaced by a bit of biscuit. With a little bit of a grassy and hay flavor that comes to the tongue at the end, one is left with a somewhat fruity sweet and somewhat unbalanced sour and odd malt flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the flavors and the style of the brew the two were quite appropriate and made for a more easier drinking feel overall. Overall – Ah, nothing too spectacular here. Not offensive, but certainly not a great go to. Ok overall and a decent non-gluten brew.

cmacklin (308) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
355 ml bottle. (5.3% ABV) Pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow with a small white head. Sweet aroma of apple and citrus. Sweet flavour of apples and citrus with a hint of rice. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Reminds me of an apple cider.

kerenmk (2613) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle. Pale clear gold with white foamy head. Flower-scented dish soap aroma, candy sweetness, medium body and sweet and sick taste. If i ever begin to intolerate gluten i’ll simply stick to rum.

so far...8 lakefront beers and a 2.3-2.4 average. nothing above a 2.8. so...not gonna buy any more at any rate. But this was a freebie. And a bland one at that. Muddled sweetish beer with little hop presence or anything else. nothing too offensive but VERY light, simple and boring."
