2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Bisby’s Pour House in Addison, IL.. Displayed a bright & clear, amber color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and translucent spots & streaks of lacing. The nose disappointedly started with a light whiff of butterscotch, followed by a mild, zest perked raspberry. Light to medium bodied, the flavor offered decent spritziness, light tartness, and raspberry that was not overpowering. Okay, except for the light diacetyl introduction.

Fruity, yes, but also kind of weak, like they bottled it before the barrel was finished.

Out of the bottle. Pours very light and sligjtly pink with no head. Taste is extremely fruity and not really very beery. With that said it does taste pleasant, but not like beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden brown with a quarter inch white head that fades. Taste is of raspberry, malt, corn, grass and sorghum. Mostly clean aroma with hints of grass. Has a decent, mostly full and wet body. The finish is mostly dry. Easy to drink and their best effort so far.

Wow, was hoping for a lot more than what this beer gave me. Reddish, pink pour with very small head; minimal to no lacing. Flavor is more reminiscent of a wine cooler than a beer, very tart, somewhat sour. Not totally terrible, but nothing I would buy again.

Seriously... I mean I am not gluten intolerant but am a beer buyer at a small natural food store so i have to try all these gluten free selections and help the celiac people find something drinkable... after trying these New Planet beers... Im going to ask for a raise ! Pours a watery salmon pink with a touch of fizz.. aromas are artificial raspberry and wine cooler type booze. On the palate it taste like a watered down wine cooler thats been cut with seltzer water. Seriously... no body, no flavor no reason to subject people to a beverage of this quality.

Bottle. Clear pink amber with a tiny fizzy head that disappears almost immediately with no lacing. Aroma is strawberry, paint thinner, cardboard, rye. Flavor is the same, better than the smell. Medium sweet, not bitter.

Well, this is the type of fruit beer I can do without. Tastes like sticky sugary extract and a bit like a cider too. Could definitely give you a headache.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear pink color with a thin fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of tart berries and faint malts. The taste is berry soda, caramel and nutty notes. Medium bodied, highly carbonated. This is basically soda.

Picked this up in a markdown section of a local liquor store. Never had a gluten free beer before. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a super clear pink with absolutely no head and a decent amount of bubbles. Aroma is raspberry, strawberry, and white grapes. Almost like a cheap pinot grigio. Taste is tart up front, that sweet. Raspberry, strawberry, grape, some grain, and light yeasty overtones are there as well. Thin mouthfeel. Overall not terrible, just way closer to a light white wine than a beer.
